TRANSFORMATIONAL 200 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Open your heart. Discover your passion. Learn to share it.
SEPTEMBER 2021 - APRIL 2022
Elevate your practice and learn to guide others through classes that educate, inspire and inform.

This comprehensive course – including asana, meditation, pranayama, philosophy, inquiry, functional anatomy, and methodology – will provide you with tools to develop your curiosity, deepen your practice, find your voice as a teacher, and use it compassionately, with integrity.

 

We've created a training for those who wish to create their own practice, for students who are ready to journey into teaching, and for existing teachers seeking to expand their instructing skills and knowledge and understanding of the science of yoga.

 

During seven amazing weekends, in a magical space in the heart of Brighton... Mornings begin with meditation and practice. Days are full of thorough study of the yoga postures, philosophy, methodology and more, taught by experts in their fields. Evenings conclude with practice teaching and self-reflection.

 

We provide pragmatic experience and study to assimilate and integrate new knowledge. The focus is on the individual voice – finding it and cultivating it by providing practical resources to make it effective.

In affirmation of the healing and preventative power of yoga as medicine – the study of asana-relevant anatomy is essential to our teacher trainings, including aspects of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Riveting philosophy is sprinkled throughout the entire course, to showcase the relevance of the ancient science's texts, mantras and language to the modern practice and art of guiding.

 

We support each person in discovering their own practice, by helping define their truth, and nurturing that – as we believe it's deep rooted passion which illuminates the joy that will maintain a strong self-practice, and the ability and authenticity to share it with others. 

 

Learn to incorporate the elements of yoga into purposeful sequencing. Practice teaching and receive feedback. Develop your skills and confidence. Discover your individual potential and unique voice as a teacher. Our creative approach in offering the technical, inspirational and business aspects of yoga will prepare you to shine your extraordinary light – on and off the mat.
