Teacher Training

Start your journey…

Join the Yogarise 200 Hour Teacher Training to unleash your true potential. Whether you’re looking to enhance your understanding of the many layers of yoga or change your career path, the Yogarise 200 Hour Teacher Training will equip you with the tools to teach at a high level and build your confidence as a yoga teacher.

The course will develop your understanding and build a strong foundation in both theoretical knowledge and practical experience. It will provide you with an integrated education in anatomy, teaching methodology, philosophy and practical aspects of yoga teaching.

Through daily asana practice, group discussions and practical experience you will learn to teach skilfully, guide responsibly and discover your voice as a yoga teacher.

This year each trainee will be matched with a Yogarise mentor to share experiences, knowledge and to give support to new teachers after qualifying. In addition we have introduced a new pregnancy and postnatal module to the teaching schedule, which we feel will further enhance trainees’ learning experience.

Don’t miss your chance to find your inspiration and join a friendly community of like-minded Yogarisers.

What our alumni think…

“I loved the balance between the London Studio training and Sri Lanka. It gave me a chance to be fully immersed in yoga at first and then merge that into real life”

“…I certainly feel confident and prepared to lead my own classes”

“I have nothing but thanks and praise for the course and I am incredibly grateful to Erin for her strength and support”
