Yoga Teacher Training Course

For those who wish to take their Yoga practice to a professional level

We believe that a yoga teacher should have a wide knowledge of Yoga. Its philosophy, and history, a developed understanding and skill in teaching all of the practices including Postures, treating relaxation and meditation, from the word go.
