The training is composed of 3 phases. During the first and last phase we come together in the eco retreat ‘Monte Velho’ in Portugal, where the stunning and peaceful environment will support our focused learning. In the months in between the two retreats, you will receive in-depth online mentoring and online training. That way you can study in the comfort of your own home or anywhere else you wish.

2018 Portugal

Phase 1 of the training will happen from the 22nd to 29th of April 2018 at the stunning ‘Monte Velho’ eco retreat center in Portugal.

From the top of the “Monte”, we become consciousness of the vast natural space around us, the strength of the elements in the region and the overwhelming beauty of one of the most, or perhaps last, secret places in the world.

After the retreat, we will naturally flow into the 2nd phase, where you’ll receive online study and mentoring for the following months,until we meet again in Portugal for phase 3. The last phase will happen from the 5th to 12th of November 2018 at ‘Monte Velho’ eco retreat center in Portugal again.


The CBYT-200 compassion based yogic training is a foundation training of 200h for personal practice & teaching. CBYT supports personal well-being through yoga, Ayurveda and self-compassion. It offers you a strong foundation in traditional yoga combined with medical science and modern insights. This is our signature training.

‘Come as you are, teach as they are’.  

Anneke Sips, founder

Within the training we teach a function-oriented approach to movement. Meaning, that we focus on awareness, stability, alignment, stretching, mobilization and daily life application, all the while working on a calm mind. Together, yoga and self-compassion, have the potential to create a state of warm, connected presence during dis-balanced moments in our lives.

International professionals will be trained to work with their students intelligently and with common sense while they learn to motivate themselves with kindness rather than criticism.

  • UNIQUE AND INNOVATIVE: The innovative training design offers you a unique way to deepen your yoga practice and learn how to teach creative and safe yoga classes. Check out the course brochure to learn what’s unique and different from most other 200h trainings.
  • ACCREDITATION: Upon successful completion of the program, you can register with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT 200 (internationally recognised Yoga Teacher certificate).
  • TIMELESS STRATEGIES: CBYT-200 is not a become-a-teacher-quickly program. You will learn compassion based yoga tools that will serve you for life.
  • LIFETIME ACCESS: Once you enroll, you will receive lifetime access to the online part of the training. Which means, that you’ll be able to come back to the online part of your program over and over again, whenever you wish or feel like you need to refresh your studies. You will also be added to the directory of NYT-A teachers.
