YOGARISE 200HR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMME
Wales + London with Erin Prichard + friends
Start your journey…
Join the fifth Yogarise 200 Hour Yoga 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, our teacher training will equip you with the tools to teach at a high level and find your confidence as a yoga teacher.
The teacher training 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. After the success of previous years, we will be bringing in some stellar supporting teachers and a wide range of modules to offer a unique and high quality syllabus.
Through our two week yoga intensive in Wales with daily asana practice, group discussions and practical experience you will learn to teach skilfully, guide responsibly and discover your voice as a yoga teacher..
As a key part of the Yogarise YTT experience, each trainee will be matched with a mentor (an experienced yoga teacher) who you will meet during the training and will provide support, advice and knowledge after qualifying. This is a great opportunity to observe, practise with and assist your mentor. You will also receive a month’s complimentary unlimited online pass and 5 drop-in studio classes to use back in London – because we know how important it is as a teacher to keep up your own practice.
Graduates will all get the chance to teach for Yogarise, for at least one month either for our online platform or in one of the three Yogarise studios (dependent on availability, social distancing etc). Our community classes raise money for local good causes and are paid by donation from our customers; they are a way of making yoga accessible while giving you valuable teaching experience. We strongly believe that if a career in teaching yoga is your dream, then this rigorous (and fun!) IRL 200hr training, plus the mentorship programme, and at least one month’s teaching for the studio, will leave you brimming with confidence and feeling well equipped to set up your own classes, attend auditions for covers lists and put ‘Yogarise’ on your teaching CV.
Don’t miss your chance to find your inspiration and join a friendly community of like-minded Yogarisers.
