Yoga Teacher Training Courses, UK

If you have come to a point in your life where you feel you want to take the step towards becoming a Yoga Teacher we appreciate there is a great deal ‘out there’ in this day and age under the name of Yoga.

To try to simply explain our ‘style’ we would try to emphasise to you the seeker or yoga Sadhak that we are a traditional authentic – Classical school of Hatha Yoga.  This incorporates many aspects of what Yoga is, not only Asana practice but also and firstly Yamas and Niyamas (moral and ethical observances), Pranayama (energy work through the breath) is a particularly large and important part of our Paramparai, Jnanayoga kriyas (visualisation practices and relaxation techniques) Karma Yoga (selfless action or work for others).  You will find our courses are very in-depth, so much so that we often have already qualified Yoga Teachers come and learn with us.

We recommend if you want to learn with us you arrange a taster day on one of our existing courses first to experience (please email us for this  If you are looking for a course that teaches only asana we are not for you.  We want students to understand the vast science that yoga is, that incorporates all aspects of our life.

Our courses are almost all residential (except for our Bristol based course but still we spend some time at the ashram) as we try to give the full ‘ashram’ experience to be immersed in the teachings and practices as much as possible.

This course can be and is a life changing experience for many, but it is something you should be prepared and open to look inside yourself, study and practice sincerely.
