The teachers of THEYOGiINME has been training passionate students and qualified teachers in its studios every year since 2016. In 2022, the concept of l’Institute of Training and Teaching of Yoga by the founder of THEYOGiINME, Layla Bennis, and Marion Ournac, to offer a catalog of training courses and guarantee the development of the skills of yoga teachers.

IFEY’s training courses are based on a duration of 200 hours of teaching to build its program of transmission of the practice of Yoga. The goal is above all to train competent teachersThis is the only way to enter the job market with the knowledge to manage groups and individuals in a private or public setting.

Each week spent in this training is intense because the teachers of the Institute, Layla and Marion, know that 200 hours to learn all the concepts and practices related to Yoga is a relatively short time. They have therefore observed that having gaps of a few weeks between the different modules favors the assimilation of the theory and allows practitioners to clarify their pedagogical posture.

Training sessions

During the weeks of training you will be able to discover the fundamental principles of Yoga, physiology, philosophy, postural study, pedagogy, construction of sequences, situation setting etc.

  • workshops

  • exercises

  • exchanges

  • individual coaching

  • guided practices

Five days of experimentation, practice and theoretical learning await those registered in the IFEY training sessions to become a Yoga teacher.

Continuity of practice

  • Course materials for learning each session
