This page contains information about teacher training courses offered by the Ecole de Légèreté. Find out how to arrange lessons for yourself with a licenced teacher.

Please note: Due to the overwhelming worldwide demand, Philippe Karl cannot hold all the basic training courses himself any more. Some courses are now led by his most experienced licenced teachers. Philippe Karl oversees these clinics and the final exams.

All clinics are open to spectators. More information about spectating can be found here.
