What will I learn on the yoga teacher training course?

Techniques Training and Practice

Learn how to confidently teach and practice Asana, Pranayama, Kriya, Chanting, Mantra and Meditation as well as modifications for injuries and posture adjustments or assists.

Teaching Hands on Assists

Learn how to give hands on assists. Allie and the team are yoga teachers who have an in depth knowledge of assisting. We believe the time we dedicate to teaching you physical assists on our syllabus is what sets our course apart from many other 200 hour yoga teacher trainings. You will learn how to safely and confidently assist different bodies throughout a 90 minute sequence, enabling you to become a confident and skilled teacher.

Teaching Methodology

Explore the principles of demonstration, observation, assisting/adjusting, instruction, teaching styles, sequencing classes, the ethics and qualities of a teacher, the students process of learning and the business of setting up as a yoga teacher. Though our history at yogahaven is mainly hot, you will learn a complete sequence suitable to teach in many environments from corporate classes, privates and gyms to hot studios and of course non - hot studios too.

Anatomy and Physiology

Study practical anatomy and physiology and delve into the energetic concepts of the Subtle Body such as Chakras and Nadis. Learn the practical application of these systems with the benefits as well as the contraindications of postures for injuries and different students, with options for modifications.

Yoga Philosophy and Ethics for a Yoga Teacher

Review classical texts, Yoga Sutras and Sanskrit, yoga philosophies, the modern applications of a yoga lifestyle, and ethics for yoga teacher.

"When the course ends, the support doesn’t."

Yoga Teacher Training Accreditation

On successful completion of the yogahaven Teacher Training course students will be accredited as 200hr international yoga teachers. This means students are entitled to use the letters RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and benefit from a discounted rate for yoga insurance through yogahaven. We can also arrange Trainee insurance while you are still in training. We also support the Independent Yoga Network (they’re a similar company to yoga alliance) so you could also register with them should you wish to.

Once certified after the yogahaven Teacher Trainin​g ​​students are then free to teach yoga safely to any markets and students. A yogahaven 200hr course is an internationally recognised certification which you can use wherever you may roam.

In the unlikely event that outside circumstances beyond our control, e.g. war, natural disasters, etc., oblige us to withdraw from the country originally offered for our training, we shall offer an alternative location for the training. If none is available, you can defer to another course. The company will not refund course costs but will offer alternative options. The company is not responsible for flight costs and we therefore recommend getting your own insurance.

Opportunities

Upon graduating as an accredited yoga teacher with yogahaven, students will have gained all the skills needed to start teaching yoga with confidence and compassion, easily catering for different styles of yoga and the individual needs of students. Though our history at yogahaven is mainly hot, you will learn a complete sequence suitable to teach in many environments from corporate classes, privates and gyms to hot studios and of course non – hot studios too.

One of the strongest testimonials to the success of our training is that all the hot yoga teachers within the family of six yogahaven studios across the UK have trained with us. And when the course ends, the support doesn’t. Our teaching graduates are encouraged to stay in touch, and after training there are opportunities to lead donation-based Karma Yoga classes for charities at our studios.  We also offer our in depth yoga teacher mentoring programme, and there are often opportunities for strong graduates to join our teaching team. A high percentage of graduates have gone on to teach across studios worldwide, with some even having opened their own studios. Their success is our joy.

Study Time

Our yoga teacher training course ​is made up of​ 180 contact hours and a minimum of 35 non-contact hours by the way of assignments plus on-going self study. Our study sessions can be led by our tutors or explored with a group Satsang and discussion. Study groups are also given so there are opportunities to practice and refresh knowledge together.

Once you are accepted into the teacher training you will be sent a list of essential and suggested reading materials along with the course manual and your first assignments, so you can get a head start before we start the intensive work together.

All Things Green

yogahaven is proud to be a Carbon Neutral company, always striving to stay close to our yogi roots and work in line with authentic yogic principles. We do our best to care about the world around us, and hope to inspire change not just in our own yoga network but within the wider global community.

At our studios we fundraise for charities by running donation-based Karma Yoga classes, led by our recent teacher training graduates. On our teacher training course itself we explore environmental and ethical issues of our modern age and reflect on how we, as yogis, can help.

During the two week intensive we fuel our bodies with delicious vegetarian and vegan meals and in the evenings, there are film and documentary screenings that tie in with yoga and help to raise awareness about our choices and the planet.
