200h Yoga Generation Teacher Training

At the Yoga Generation school, we are not looking to create another Vinyasa Flow; Ashtanga or a Power Yoga teacher. More and more people are turning to yoga to find a new sense of balance that can help them tackle the mounting challenges of modern life. Yoga Generation’s 200 hour Teacher Training is specifically designed to meet the needs of a new generation of yogis who want to combine a modern approach and methodology with the ancient yogic techniques and philosophy.  With a highly experienced faculty of tutors we are able to offer a truly unique course that is deeply rooted in a Sri Krishnamacarya lineage yet shines a light on many other paths of yoga. As a result, Yoga Generation graduates will become part of a new generation of yogis who are not limited to one strict doctrine, but are equipped to embrace and share the vast practice of yoga with those in search of health, peace and happiness.

AlinaAlina Kopelchuk Biography
Co-Instructor, Founder & Ayurveda Tutor

Alina has been a dedicated Yoga practitioner for over 8 years. After experiencing wonderful effects of yoga on her own life and realising that her passion for yoga is turning into a life-long path of self-discovery, she decided to share her experience and become a full-time yoga teacher. Quick after completion of the 200h Yoga Teacher Training course with Younique Yoga, Alina found herself running a yoga studio in the city of London.
In addition, in order to have deeper understanding of how to keep our physical body healthy and balanced, Alina is currently training to become an Ayurvedic life style and nutrition specialist. Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that originated in India thousands of years ago. The Sanskrit term Ayurveda is a combination of two words: Ayu – life and Veda – knowledge or science. While Ayurveda is the science and Yoga is the practice of the science, the two are inseparable sisters for Alina: inquiry into Ayurvedic knowledge inspires her to practice Yoga and her Yoga practice helps to get deeper understanding of Ayurvedic principles.
