HotTT yoga teacher training Italy

Bologna, Italy

July 2 – Aug 24, 2018

Imagine the Bikram yoga teacher training experience in a more balanced, inclusive and open minded environment.

Now, imagine getting certified to teach both the classic 26+2 series, as well as intelligently designed Flow classes, plus an introduction to Yin yoga, all in a single immersive Training experience. Our Trainings have been designed to not only make better yoga teachers who know how to deeply inspire and uplift, but to notably improve the quality of your own life in tangible and practical ways that are meaningful to you.

Evolation’s TheHotTT is our fullest expression of this vision.

TheHotTT is an 8 week, 500 hour Life Training that will simultaneously allow you to get certified as a Yoga Teacher in either of two three tracks: you may choose to immerse yourself completely in the classic Primary Series (26+2) for the full 500 hours; or get certified to teach the Primary Series as well as Flow Yoga classes. Whichever track calls you, you will experience an intense Training environment designed to expand your mind and your view of yourself forever.

TheHotTT Italy

The focus of this 500 hour course is to help you become a well balanced Yoga teacher in either the Hot Yoga discipline or in both Hot Yoga and Flow Yoga. The curriculum includes posture mechanics, teaching clinics and in-depth lectures on the practical applications of yoga philosophy in your and your students’ daily lives. The schedule moves on a rotating basis between yoga practice, workshops and theory, allowing ever increasing depth of integration between the three.

In addition to learning how to teach the Primary Hot Yoga Series (26+2) and Flow Yoga, you will be introduced to new styles of yoga, and learn about the theory and benefits of meditation during an extensive meditation workshop.


TheHotTT is an 8 week, 500 hour, Yoga Alliance registered Yoga Teacher Training, covering Hot, Flow and Yin styles of yoga. You will deepen your yoga knowledge with practical philosophy and anatomy lectures; teaching clinics; posture mechanics and alignment clinics; and yoga classes beyond the traditional 26+2 postures.

The Italy HotTT training will take place in the beautiful countryside just outside of Bologna. Spend four weeks in rustic Italy as you live the life of a yogi, living in a sprawling estate while practicing in an on-site private studio and deepening your yoga knowledge with the Evolation team.

The training are located in the small, charming village of Sasso Marconi which owes its name to Guglielmo Marconi, the scientist that invented the radio and wireless communication. The village is in beautiful Italian mountainous countryside with spectacular views, located in the region of Emilia Romagna in northern Italy and is about 35 minutes from Bologna.

The medieval university town of Bologna will be a fantastic place to spend some free time outside of the training as it is charming, historic and fun to explore – Bologna is a crossroads of culture and is typically more quiet and less crowded than Florence, Venice, and Rome. However, there will be other opportunities to take weekend trips and visit these other major Italian cities. Experiencing the beauty and culture of Italy can enliven the soul and provide the perfect backdrop for this transformational experience.

We realize teacher training involves a commitment of money and time and we’ll help you anyway we can with the costs. You can make a payment in one lump sum or over four installments. It may even be possible for us to let you cover the costs in much smaller installments.

Transportation to and from the airport will not be provided – you need to organize all your own travel plans and transportation to the house. Students should be arriving on Sunday July 1 and departing on Sunday August 26. You can of course arrive early or stay later in Italy on your own; however, we will not be able to supply housing or food if you wish to travel before or after the training.
