Teaching yoga can help you create a life where your beliefs, thoughts and actions flow from your core values. Whether you are interested in broadening your understanding of yoga or teaching yoga to others, this in-depth teacher training programme is for you. Our integrated and holistic 200-hour training is designed to foster a thorough learning environment where those who wish to teach are given the skills and knowledge to be creative, compassionate and confident teachers.
This broad-based Yoga Teacher Training Programme is designed to honour the timeless teachings and many styles of yoga that have grown from the lineage of Krishnamacharya, the inspiration behind many styles of modern yoga including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha Flow, Iyengar Yoga and the teachings of his son Desikachar. Students will be given a solid foundation and the resources to develop their own teaching style based on this lineage. The training is grounded in yoga’s ancient roots as well as its modern blossoming; giving graduates the tools to adapt their teaching style to every level - from beginner to advanced - and every body type.
