The art of teaching yoga – 200h teacher training with Nico Luce

Started on 2 novembre 2023Duration 6 blocks of 5 daysCost Early bird CHF 4'200.- until July 2

We are super excited to welcome Nico Luce back for a 200h Yoga teacher training in Lausanne! 
He offers a 200hr Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program certified by Yoga Alliance (RYS 200)

This training is a complete and progressive learning experience that deepens student’s knowledge and builds a solid foundation for a working yoga teacher, in each of these fields of study: 

  • anatomy & physiology

  • asana & sequencing

  • teaching methodology

  • pranayama & meditation

  • energetics

  • history & philosophy

  • sanskrit terminology & mantra

  • ethics and the business of yoga

With a scope both deep and wide, this program fosters the growth of both the student and teacher in you through ample exploratory, integrated learning, and practice teaching.  

My mission is to prepare you to develop safe and sensible yoga classes for all levels of studentship. In this training, you will learn to artfully create a sequence and teach asana skillfully, to accurately observe students’ bodies, assist them into optimally aligned asana through the use of words, basic hands-on adjustments, modifications and the use of props. An in depth study of functional anatomy and physiology will form the basis for understanding how to instruct each asana and create a sound sequence.

I believe a deeper understanding of yoga and how to teach asana comes from a consistent commitment to your personal practice, and your practice will become a well-spring of resources and inspiration for you as a teacher. As such, asana, bio-mechanics and sequencing are at the core of this training. With Asana Labs and Practice Teaching sessions on a regular basis, you will deepen your knowledge of the bio-mechanics of yoga and develop communication skills to transmit this knowledge to your own students.

The nature of this training schedule requires participants to fully immerse themselves in the study and practice yoga. Participants should be sincerely interested and ready to study earnestly. You need to be in good health and able to move free of pain. As such, I recommend a regular yoga practice of at least one year prior to this training. This training may be taken to deepen your own knowledge, with or without the intention to teach.

This training is certified by Yoga alliance


Nico is a 500 hour certified yogi and international trainer who has been teaching yoga since 2003, and is himself committed to never ending the journey of learning

His love for Eastern philosophy, spirituality and anatomy are all weaved skilfully into his teaching; his style is eclectic, drawing on his study with some of the top teachers in Hatha, Anusara, Vinyasa, Yin and Power Yoga and Pilates. Yet grounded in reality, yoga, in his view is not separate from life but rather constitutive of it, and draws from everyday experiences to realize the practice’s potential.

An avid story teller, philosopher, traveller and mover, Nico has spent much of his life in pursuit of the extra ordinary; from intrepid travels through India, acting stints and a successful yoga studio ownership, he has spent much of his life seeking a way to embrace this life with each breath, one breath at a time. Living life to its fullest potential is to live with vibrancy, adventure and zest.

By bringing to life the ancient teachings of yoga, Nico’s goal is to take you on a powerful transformational journey which will have you seeking the answers to your questions and challenging the way you view your life, inviting you to look inside, to never stop asking the questions and to be brave, to remain open, and to take a chance on yourself.

You can find Nico studying at his home in Switzerland, teaching & gardening at Occitania Retreats in the South of France, or travelling to the corners of the globe sharing his teachings in a humble and honest way.

You can practice with him on Gaïa
