Apart from being the highest level of Yoga Teacher Training in the UK what makes this course really special is the fact that you will be encouraged to start teaching quite early on in the course. 

Not only will this help build your confidence a a yoga teacher, but will also give you the support you need in the initial stages of your yoga teaching career. 

Initially you will start teaching your peers on the course, and this will be ongoing throughout the 3 years.  You will also be encouraged to teach in your community as soon as you and your tutor agree that you are ready. 

There will be 2 Assessed Class Teaching practices within the course where you will be observed and assessed on classes that you have set up. If this is a problem then do speak with your tutor to make other arrangements.


  • You will be expected to attend 80% of the course
  • You will be asked to keep a pranayama journal throughout the course . While you will not be assessed on this you will be asked to show it once in a while as evidence of your continuing practice
  • There will be set assignments throughout the training course which will vary from practical assignments (a teaching practice or presentation) to writing an essay, completing a worksheet, preparing a mini project, or producing a video or audio file, academic poster or infographic. This course aims to offer a choice to students in how they might wish to present their assignments.
