Yoga is for everyone

2019 Yoga Teacher
Training Course

Your training will commence in November 2019. Contact hours will be completed by October 2020. 

You’ll be committing to 310 hours of face to face training on the physical aspects of Yoga and meditation – enabling you to teach confidently – beginners, restorative and general level classes.

Come and join us! Here’s your opportunity to awaken through the artful practice of Yoga, discovering and embodying both ancient wisdom and modern day knowledge as you learn from three of the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic and dedicated Yoga Teachers around.

This is a comprehensive year long training that values face to face, real time learning. With a strong emphasis on functional anatomy and physiology, you can also expect a detailed delve into philosophy giving you a useable toolkit of knowledge and skill to access on your onward journey as a qualified (and successful) Yoga Teacher. 

You’ll be tending to the garden of the Heart, developing deep wisdom and self understanding as you welcome yourself to all of your life. A desire to teach is not essential, you can also simply use this course for deepening your own understanding of self and the fruitful practice that is Yoga. New friendships will form and laughs guaranteed.

It is for those who desire to deepen their own knowledge and practice of yoga as well as for those who seriously wish to make Yoga teaching a personal profession. Don’t feel you must need to want to become a teacher to join the course; an urge to grow and awaken to life’s richness without the desire to teach is enough.
