200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
Hear about our program from our founder…
Our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course is Yoga Alliance Global approved. With the Soul Sanctuary Yoga Teacher Training qualification you will be recognised as a registered yoga teacher anywhere in the world. The Soul Sanctuary yoga teacher training programme is perfect for those who have a passion for yoga, psychology, self-development and personal growth. Although we are a registered yoga school, we use yoga to learn about ourselves and to teach others how to do the same.
Why is Yoga Alliance approval so important?
Yoga Alliance have a set of criteria that a yoga training school has to meet to ensure the highest quality of syllabus and teachers. Every training school has additional hours within the syllabus, that can allocate to their style of training. Soul Sanctuary yoga studio believes that your body is only ever as healthy as your mind, and our classes are infused with psychology and self-development to reflect that. Our teacher training courses not only teach you how to become the best yoga teacher but furthermore the happiest and healthiest version of yourself!
Yoga as a wellbeing tool
The practice of yoga helps us understand ourselves better, we begin to see the thought patterns that serve us and those that hold us back! Yoga simultaneously helps you step out of your own way and achieve whatever it is you want from this world, whether that’s teaching yoga or not. If you decide to teach yoga, you will be an extraordinarily powerful teacher, but after this course, you will also feel re-energised and have the support and focus you need to excel in all other areas of your life. It’s not about how good we look in a yoga pose; it’s all about good we can FEEL! You do not need to be able to do ‘advanced’ yoga poses to be a powerful yoga teacher, you just have to be PASSIONATE about sharing the benefits of yoga with others and committed to personal growth.
Yoga Alliance changed their allowances for course styles to accommodate for courses and students during the Covid pandemic. Courses are now able to be 100% online, a blend of pre-recorded and live content. This has made training to become a yoga teacher far more accessible from both a teaching and learning perspective.
We have been teaching in-person courses for nearly 10 years, and online courses for the past 2 years. Our in-person and online courses have the exact same syllabus, but just differ in style of learning so all you need to choose is which course fits best around your lifestyle.
Our in-person courses are intensive, with two weeks plus one weekend of in-person attendance, dates below.
Our online courses are self-paced, so you get access to all our pre-recorded content online which you can work through at your own pace, plus 2 live calls every month. You can complete the course in 6 months, or roll into the next course for free if you need longer. The course is modular, which means you don’t have to start and end on a certain date, people are joining the course all through the year, don’t worry about start and end dates, just note live call dates in your diary. All the live calls are recorded and uploaded to the learning platform, so you can catch up on any content missed, any time! It’s designed to be super relaxed and flexible. And, if you feel like you need the flexibility but will miss the face to face contact, you can join the Hybrid meetings, where online course mates get together in-person to connect and learn with a Soul Sanctuary Lead Teacher Trainer to help with any questions, alignment, or whatever you need.
