“Urban OM’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is a path
for self- transformation, self-empowerment and community building.”
Begin your journey into the heart of yoga, selfless service, and the path of leadership. At Urban OM we believe that we all have wisdom to share with each other and the world and that your particular flavour is needed and longed for!
This training is for you who love yoga, who have experienced its benefits in your own life and want to know the reason behind its effects. Maybe you have a calling to share what has helped you, maybe you just want to learn more and get inspired to live more in alignment with your heart.
Urban OM is unique and at the forefront as a center for Yoga Therapy Educations and some of our YTT faculty were among the first IAYT-certified yoga therapists in Sweden. In our YTT 200h you will be trained in an integrative approach to yoga that spans yoga practices for wellness to foundational yoga therapy principles. The curriculum is drawn from both traditional hatha yoga practices and philosophy as well as modern movement therapy and psychology. We believe in a non-dogmatic, intelligent and creative approach to teaching yoga where the student’s needs and wellbeing is at the center.
We want to encourage yoga teachers to be humble, caring and kind, to lean into the realization that there are many ways to the same goal, to know that yoga is for everyone regardless of physical ability and that no one knows your body-mind better than you. Let’s be fellow students of Yoga and Life!

What is included in the training?
What is not included in the tuition fee?
Food is not provided during your sessions at Urban OM though Urban OM has meals, snacks and beverages available for sale in the cafe. All students are responsible for paying and arranging for transportation to and from Urban OM and the residential retreat center.
Accommodation at the residential retreat is a separate fee, normally 2400-3600 SEK per person for 4 nights, depending on the chosen room option. This fee is given directly to the location; Urban OM receives no profit.
What happens if I miss one or more sessions?
Yoga is a full experience and becoming a yoga teacher is a process of immersing yourself fully into the group, the course content and the learning process. Therefore, we ask that you arrange your time to attend 100% of classes, which is also important for your accreditation to become a yoga teacher. We ask this from you so that you will get the most out of the course and we trust you will do your best.
In case that you miss any part of the course, we ask that you act responsibly to catch up either with a study buddy or if the course is online to replay the material and complete any assignments. In the unlikely event that you miss more than 20% of the course you would not be eligible to receive a teacher certificate and we would recommend that you retake the course.
How do I know if I am ready?
It’s simple. You are ready if you have a regular yoga practice (home or studio), you love yoga and you wish to dedicate more time to deepen your knowledge and experience of yoga. It is not about level, it’s about passion. This is a transformative journey – it’s natural that one part of you might feel ready and another voice might say something different. Yoga is a mystical path, the reason you are on this journey will make more sense as you continue along the road!
How can I integrate this training in and around my job and life commitments?
In having the training every week at the same time, same place, a routine can more easily be established within your daily life.
Additionally, with this being spread out over time you have the possibility to apply the learnings directly into your lifestyle.. Even more, with Urban OM being in your own city, you are more able to continue your transformational journey beyond graduation – by attending classes, events, courses and continued educations; by maintaining a relationship with your fellow students, mentors and teachers; and by having a deeply rooted connection to the sacred space that carried you through your experiences and knowledge… This training and Urban OM can become a part of your daily life, rather a separate experience.
What kind of yoga is this training?
This is a hatha yoga teacher training where the asana and pranayama are coming mainly from the Krishnamacharya lineage and philosophy mainly from Swami Dayananda’s commentary on the Vedas. Our faculty are highly skilled yoga practitioners and trainers with roots in Ashtanga and Iyengar style yoga.
What happens if it’s school holidays?
The training is scheduled around the school vacation times, allowing for time with the family. This means that training dates are not scheduled during school holidays.
What if I don’t wish or intend on becoming a teacher? Is this course still right and relevant for me?
Many students begin their yoga teacher training journey simply to deepen their personal practice. On average, approximately 70% of the students begin to understand their bodies and yoga’s benefits in a more experiential or intellectual way, and 30% want to become teachers; by graduation, the numbers have switched! During the training you will attend the Business of Yoga sessions which cover possible professional avenues to pursue after the training eg. live steam teaching, setting up your own business, offering workshops & retreats, teaching classes at studios, corporate yoga, giving 1:1s, continued & advanced yoga training e.g. yoga therapy education.
Why is your training led by more than one teacher?
The training follows a set curriculum and whilst we encourage you to find your own way, we will guide you to extract common and core teaching gems to give you the tools, skills and resources to shine. Every teacher brings their own voice, perspective and expertise into their sessions. As a faculty we are committed to broadening your knowledge of yoga, and we encourage you to find what resonates most for you by sharing what resonates with us.
How much time is invested outside of the sessions?
As they say, you get out what you put in. But roughly speaking, 1-2 hours per week should be dedicated to embodying your practices and learnings, by working with assigned challenges, reflections, suggested reading and karma yoga. Think of it this way: simply exchange 1 movie or a few episodes of Netflix for your yoga evolution! Memorization of text or sequences is not required or even encouraged – explore finding your own authentic voice!
What is covered in the course?
In digestible blocks the training covers traditional yoga techniques and methodology including and not limited to Asana, Pranayama, mantra and meditation. Philosophy and how it relates to teaching yoga and daily life. Anatomy and physiology with relationship to asana and stress management. Leadership and personal development, The business of yoga. What it means to be a teacher, voice, class management, sequencing and much more. The training is set up in a way to encourage you finding your way to share the tools of yoga.
Will I be able to teach yoga classes by the end of the training?
It is our goal that by the end of the training you will be able to confidently teach a safe, anatomically informed class with variations to support students.
