200 HR FOUNDATIONAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
27/10/2024 - 17/11/2024
Journey deep into the heart and spirit of yoga with us in an immersive, near-to-nature experience between the mountains and the Atlantic ocean.
Yoga is not just for the one's blessed with flexibility and that it doesn't require you to have a certain gender, race, physicality, religion or belief. The word yoga translates as "to join together", to break the illusion of separation. To bring you back in touch with your essence and life purpose.
Our 200 hr foundational yoga teacher training is not a standard copy pasted Yoga Alliance training. It is a training that will take you beyond the text books and out of the classroom into nature to explore the teachings of yoga.
You will leave this course with hands on teaching experience and the confidence you need to start teaching gentle and dynamic vinyasa yoga classes infused with embodied yogic philosophy.

The benefits of a 3 week training intensive is that you can go really deep without the distractions of your day to day to do lists and responsibilities. Invest full focus on your self for 21 days straight and create a strong foundation for your yogic practice & teachings .
off the mat
Our training venues are handpicked and are always located in areas where you can have a lot of fun, adventure and vitamin SEA.
In your free time you can go out and explore the towns, go surf, go hike, book a massage or sauna or simply enjoy the pool and relax!
east & west
We want to help you merge the most beautiful aspects of Eastern and Western sciences & philosophies on and off the yoga mat.
We teach with respect for the tradition and with an open mind for new ways.
This course is taught in English but we also speak Dutch, French & Spanish.
This course is intense. It will challenge you physically, mentally and spiritually but oh boy... you will grow! As preparation to the training you will get a reading list and some pre homework. During the training you are also required to do home work to help you integrate what you learned. After this training you will have a deep and embodied understanding of yoga and you can teach asana, pranayama and meditation in a safe, encouraging and sustainable way.
We limit our group to maximum 14 students. Men and women are welcome. A small group will allow your teacher to give you the individual attention you need to feel well prepared and confident after the training.
During 3 weeks you will live in community with a group of like minded people and in alignment with the yogic ethics and philosophy.
During the training we provide a nourishing, vegetarian menu. Every day we serve a big brunch, healthy but filling snack and dinner. Tea, coffee, water & fresh fruits will be available all day.
Any dietary wishes? Let us know upfront. Everything is possible :)
between mountains and the ocean
Situated in a rural Berber village, just 13 minutes drive away from the surf village of Taghazout. Its location is idyllic - peaceful, tranquil and calm.
Our venue is completely private and has various accomodation options. There is a yoga shala with 360 view over the country side, a pool, an outdoor dining area, indoor snug area and a sahara tent for cosy evenings.
This place has all the elements for us to focus on the training but also enjoy time to relax, restore & connect.

Agouni, our berber village, is close enough to the beaches and excitement of Taghazout, yet far enough away to really get close to nature. The only passing traffic is the occasional herd of goats. Taghazout is a coastal town that has stolen the heart of many surfers, so you can definitely hop on a surf board during your free time. but there is so much more to see & do! Rent a bike and go and explore, enjoy the many bars & cafe's, get lost in the Taboga dunes, enjoy a trip to Paradise valley, ...
The options are endless & we are here to assist you!
The nearest main city, Agadir is less than 20km from our venue. Further afield is the artists’ quarter of Essaouira at 2.5 hours away, and the red city of Marrakech is 3.5 hours away. The nearest airports are Agadir International (49 km or a one hour drive) and Essaouira International (two-hour drive) and Marrakech (approximately three hours drive).
YOUR PRIMARY TEACHER
Hi & welcome, my name is Charlotte.
I founded KOKKON out of love for yoga, people and traveling.
Over the last 10 years i have been sharing my knowledge and personal experiences as a yoga student and teacher in classes, workshops, as a lead teacher on over 10 YTT programs and yoga retreats worldwide.
My heart beats faster when i think about the ocean, high mountains, curry, dogs, my loved ones, philosophy books, deep conversations, belly laughs, studying the human body and mind, sunsets, cooking, Bali, bonfires, sharing personal stories, dancing, surfing, hiking & full body massages.
The feeling of Yoga comes from remembering and recognizing our true nature, atman, and choosing our actions, karma, in alignment with our soul's purpose, our dharma.
I definitely feel teaching these courses is my dharma and i am so
excited to share everything i know and to see you go out into the world after the course to integrate it into your own life and maybe share it with others as well!
I can't wait to go on this adventure with you!
I did my first 200hr yoga teacher training with Charlotte and it has had a profound impact on my life and is the gift that keeps on giving. Charlotte is a wealth of knowledge and has a beautiful ability to pass this on to her students. I continuously get compliments on the way that my teaching smoothly integrates alignment cues, the breath, transitions, along with ancient philosophy weaved through each class, and that is because of how professional and holistic the training I received from Charlotte was. She also has a profound ability to hold space for students as personal things always tend to surface when you dive deeper into these practices. Forever grateful!

I had the pleasure of learning from Charlotte as she was my yoga teacher during my yoga teacher training at Shades of Yoga in Bali. She has a way of explaining concepts and yoga philosophy in a way that makes everyone understand and take part.
She is warm and encouraging and shares her knowledge in a very generous way that helps you see things from several perspectives.
Her asana classes are beautiful too.
I am extremely grateful that I did my yoga teacher training with her as it was a truly transformative experience thanks to her.
I recommend anyone that has a chance to go on her retreats, trainings and classes.

Charlotte is truely gifted, she’s a natural teacher and was put on this earth to guide, educate and help people, not just in her capacity as a yoga teacher and trainer also as a person. She guided me on my journey and what’s so special and important she allowed me to find my own path, which is something so special. Her knowledge of asana, anatomy and yogic philosophy is extensive and she has a way of getting you to get into your head that I truely appreciate. I left feeling confident and capable because of Charlotte and even now she's still there when I need a check in.
