Advanced Teacher Training

150 Hour (Level 2) Teacher Training

Learning happens when you are teaching yoga. And, learning continues forever as long as you are prepared to dive into the abyss and start teaching.

During our 150 hour program you’ll learn to design your own personal practice, how to sequence and teach inspiring yoga classes, work one to one with students borrowing from a tool kit of sequences and pranayama rhythms tailored to the individuals needs, learn effective adjustment and alignment skills, receive personal mentoring and inspiring ways to present yoga philosophy within your teachings.

We like to broaden peoples horizons and make you shine and help get you over any nerves or fear  addressing the general public. Our 150 hour program will equip you on your teaching journey with the support from our experienced teaching faculty.  It will also be the gentle nudge that gets you over the line, teaching classes with confidence and joy.

To participate in this training program you are required to have completed a 200 hour teacher training study program. We accept all individuals trained in Hatha Vinyasa Yoga from any yoga program, with certification, from all countries.

“After doing my 200hrs Teacher Training I felt this extra training would give me the edge I needed. And it did! As soon as I completed 150 hrs module I can honestly say I was truly confident & ready to teach.  Being mentored under the watchful eye of such a gifted & knowledgeable teacher was invaluable. I gained an even deeper understanding of anatomy & physiology. I got more precious practical experience learning how to read bodies – & give appropriate & safe variations where needed. I learned how to put together a balanced sequence quickly & now have a bunch of prepared classes at the ready.  And, best of all, I found my authentic voice & learned to relax & enjoy this wonderful job!” Olivia Pigeot.
