teacher training course.
The one year postgraduate advanced yoga teacher training course aims to inspire, empower and support qualified yoga teachers. Drawing from yogic and associated traditions it honours the uniqueness of the individual as both student and teacher of yoga. The course develops the intuition and confidence necessary to evolve your teaching skills.
We provide the space to facilitate the deepening of personal practice, thereby inspiring yoga teaching. The course presents a ‘toolbox’ of yogic and associated practices to apply in personal practice and when teaching.
Qualified, self-motivated yoga teachers from any tradition are invited to join the postgraduate advanced yoga teacher training course.
This 150 hour yoga registered course includes 100 taught hours held over 14 days (7 weekends of which 2 are Friday to Sunday residential weekends which are included in the course fee) plus 50 hours of home study and practice.
