Yoga Teacher Training
Starts 18th February 2023
Are you passionate about your yoga practice and want to go deeper? Perhaps yoga has healed you so profoundly that you want to share this powerfully healing sequence with others. You don't need to be able to do every asana perfectly to become an inspirational teacher.
Our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training will guide, inspire and challenge you to not only transform your own practice and deepen your understanding of your own body but also empower you to apply this powerful experience to guide others.
You will learn both the Hot 26 and Hot Vinyasa styles of yoga during this training. This unique approach will equip you with a a wealth of knowledge about both Hatha and Vinyasa styles of yoga while still providing you with the route to becoming an inspirational teacher of the yoga modality of your choosing.
Our training program offers so much more than just learning the mechanics of each pose or the origins of yoga. You will build confidence, charisma and refine your interpersonal skills to be able to lead a powerful class - one where every student will feel inspired and challenged.

Accelerate transformation in your life – Have you ever left a yoga class feeling like the BEST you? In teacher training there is an even more powerful pace of transformation taking effect!
How will the Teacher Training work for me?
We understand that people come to our training for unique reasons. For some people it is because they want to develop a keener awareness of their own practice and a deeper understanding of yoga. Some wish to become yoga teachers in a preferred style (Hot 26 or Vinyasa) by the end of the program. Our training program will work with individuals to help them achieve their unique goals.
The first half of the training will focus on the Hot 26 (Bikram method) yoga sequence where we will explore the postures in depth and how to teach an effective class using the Hot 26 dialogue. The second half will focus on Vinyasa yoga and how to teach and create Vinyasa sequences.
Depending upon your personal preference to specialize/teach one of these styles, you will be given guidance and support to focus in on the style of your choosing. For example if you are primarily interested in becoming a Hot 26 teacher, even while you are learning about the Vinyasa poses during the second half of the program, you will be focusing on perfecting the Hot 26 dialogue and practice teaching.
You will have access to mentoring throughout the training to help you with your personal goals.
What you will learn
Proper alignment is critical to harnessing the healing benefits of yoga. You will discover a new level of depth in each posture, including subtle yet powerful nuances that will transform your practice and those of your students. The benefits of each pose are explored in depth.
Studying the muscles, joints and bones within the human body will enable you to understand how each pose in the sequence works to create the healing benefits of this practice. Specifically, we will also understand how different bodies have varying anatomical differences and why one size doesn't always fit all.
This important module will cover how the different poses should be modified for people who may be healing from injuries or have other limitations. You will be able to apply these modifications to your own practice if required. As a future teacher you will be able assist those who need adjustments to perform the poses effectively.
Voice & Projection
Our training covers practical techniques and tips on how to harness the power of your voice. You will learn how to use your voice to encourage, to challenge, to empathize and to cajole your class to push to their best potential. Our trainers have backgrounds in voiceover work, singing and ballet.
The Art of Teaching
Teaching a great class is all about creating a real connection with the room. How do you motivate your class when energy may be lagging? How do you encourage the newbie to keep going while inspiring your advanced students to go deeper? You will learn how to manage the dynamics of your class and how to strike the right balance between challenging your students and being compassionate.
Meditation & Pranayama
The word 'Yoga" means union. Union between mind and body, between breath and energy. Your training will include introduction to yoga sutras, practicing meditation techniques and different pranayama breathing exercises. You will gain awareness of how yoga heals not only the body but also the mind and the underlying life force itself. In doing so, you will have the tools to bring yourself and your students to experience the meditative aspects of yoga.
