The training course is spread out over 3 years. Each year will be concluded by an evaluation, based on which it will be decided whether or not you can go through to the next year. Each year consists of 144 contact hours divided over 10 weekends and one 4-day intensive or 2 extra weekends instead. In addition to this, you commit to taking at least 106 hours of yoga classes per year with a certified Iyengar yoga teacher (this amounts to 1 class of 120 minutes per week). The annual evaluation also looks at the number of hours of yoga classes you followed that year; therefore, you need to register your hours by means of a card to be signed off by the teacher after each class.


At the start of the training course, you will receive a Yoga Academy Maastricht student pass that entitles you to discounts on English books (10%) and clothing (15%).

Tuition fees per year:
Full payment in 1 installment:
€ 1650,00 per year
Payment in 3 installments:
€ 565,00 per instalment
(payment due before 1 September, 1 december and 1 April)

Comprised in this fee are the costs for the training weekends and the mock exam.
Apart from the tuition fees, there will be additional costs for the purchase of books, tuition fees for your weekly yoga classes and/or additional workshops, and your membership of the Dutch Iyengar Yoga Association (€ 35). These additional costs are not included in the tuition fees.

If you take the exam held by the Dutch Iyengar Yoga Association, you will pay them an exam fee of € 150 at the end of the third year.
Please note that you can only take the exam in the Netherlands if you are a resident of the Netherlands.
