Who is the 200-hour programme for?

The programme is any yoga student who would like  expand their knowledge, skills, and understanding of yoga. And would like to learn to teach Yoga to an exceptional level.

The learning is also open to students who may not wish to teach classes to the public but want to gain insight to help their own professional and personal journey (e.g. physiotherapists, or therapists, school teachers).

Whatever your motivation to become a Yoga Teacher the course requires dedication and commitment. This is a carefully constructed programme, with regular ongoing support and input from our experienced teachers.

Our Yoga Teacher Training attracts students from across the Midlands, the Northwest, and across the UK and Europe. Note if you are travelling from a distance you are still required to attend the duration of the course. We ask students to have a regular two-year yoga practice, to ensure they meet our prerequisites
