200 hour Yoga Teacher Training


Yoga teacher training is a way to reveal the most radiant, confident, skilful version of yourself, as well as being a professional qualification. Whether you want to become a yoga teacher or deepen your practice of yoga, our holistic 200 hour yoga teacher training will provide you with all you need. The experience will be life-changing. 


All of our tutors are highly experienced and influential in their fields, and will be able to give you the attention that you need in a group no bigger than 10 trainees. The Yoga by Nature teacher training approach is holistic and mindful, giving you a thorough grounding in all aspects of yoga, not just the physical practice. Your course leader, Morven, is a committed student of yoga who is continually updating her training with her teachers, who lead in the fields of historical research, somatics, anatomy and physiology, trauma awareness, ethics and mindfulness. 


On graduating from the course, you will understand the broader context of yoga and the yogic life as well as the detail of asana instruction, and you will be able to teach from your own integrated experience. This is an opportunity to vastly expand your knowledge and develop the knowhow to successfully launch your yoga teaching career.


This course is suitable for those who wish to deepen their knowledge and experience of yoga. Not everyone who does a 200 hour yoga teacher training course is looking to teach, but if you are, this course will give you the best start you can get.


You will receive free mentoring for a year after you graduate, so you can stay connected with your training group and ask your course leader about anything that comes up once you are out there teaching yoga. Yoga by Nature offers employment opportunities to graduates of the course, so you may even find yourself on the YBN weekly timetable!

The course takes place at  Parklands Educate Together Primary in Locking, Weston. A brand new light, airy space with underfloor heating and plenty of parking. It's a large space, perfect for yoga with lots of wall space for asana techniques practice, a breakout room, outdoor green space and excellent facilities.

OUR STYLE & APPROACH

Our holistic yoga teacher training course is an in-depth study of holistic Hatha yoga and its roots, interwoven with Mindfulness. We give you the detail of asana instruction whilst encompassing all the many other facets of yoga practice. Morven is informed by the most up to date research into yoga's history and development, to give you the most lucid insights possible into the meaning of yoga. 


You are encouraged in our programme to develop your own interoception and intuitive alignment, using general instruction as a guideline for mapping out your own interior landscape. This somatic approach ensures that you will teach from your own embodied experience and with authenticity and accuracy. 


We know that yoga is a huge subject, and that there is only so much you can fit into a foundational training like this one. It's important to us to offer you a first-hand experience of all that yoga has to offer. We provide detailed insights into the application of asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, kriya and meditation. You will also learn appropriate adjustments and delve into an experiential and theoretical exploration of the anatomy and physiology of yoga. A holistic programme embraces the all-encompassing nature of the yogic path; you will study applied yoga philosophy, learn how to life the yogic life and do modules in Ayurveda and Mindfulness. `

THE RETREAT

We will close the course with three nights on retreat. Being on a yoga retreat allows you to fully immerse yourself in the contemplative life, away from all of the distractions of daily life. 


"...the longer retreat worked really well for bonding and to immerse ourselves in our practice and in our graduation from the course" - YTT graduate


On retreat, you are open to fully integrating the teachings of yoga and forming an embodied understanding of yoga in action. The retreat provides the setting for your graduation ceremony and the close of this chapter of our journey together.

"This course was one of the most powerful and empowering experiences of my life. I found the holistic approach enlightening and thought provoking and I felt very supported in exploring some big topics and ideas for myself. While I now feel confident to teach yoga, this course hasn’t just facilitated an ability to teach yoga; it has truly developed a bedrock for my whole life."
