Course description

Our 200 hour Teacher Training course is Yoga Alliance Global approved, so with our qualification you will be recognised as a registered yoga teacher anywhere in the world.

We have ensured that the content we deliver surpasses every criteria required not only to create powerful yoga teachers, but more importantly empowered individuals. As a Yoga Alliance Global registered yoga school, there are a set amount of hours which have to meet Yoga Alliance Global standards to ensure the core training topics are covered effectively, each individual yoga studio can then allocate additional hours to areas of training which are most aligned with their studio values.

At Soul Sanctuary, our USP is bringing psychology into yoga, it’s what makes our classes stand out and is what builds connection and community at our studio. In order to achieve this consistency, all of our Vinyasa teachers go through the Soul Sanctuary Teacher Training program, which has a heavy focus on Psychology, Coaching and Self-Enquiry.

Our program 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. So really, this course is about self-discovery, as 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! Through this realisation, you are able to step out of your own way to achieve whatever it is that 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 this course will also re-energise you and give you the support and focus you need to excel in all other areas of your life.

We believe that the power of our classes does not come from the physical ability of the teacher, but how they are able to share and connect with their students. It’s not about how good we look in a yoga pose, it’s all about good we can FEEL! So, 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 continual personal growth. If you become a Soul Sanctuary Yoga Teacher after your course, regular Soul Sanctuary team reflective sessions are a part of your teaching requirements, to ensure you are always feeling supported as an individual and empowered as a teacher.

As a yoga teacher, your classes will only be as powerful as you are happy, through our training program you will learn how to step out of your own way to create the life you desire, and so you will inspire others to do the same! In that way, some students who come to our teacher training program come purely to deepen their knowledge of yoga and self, with no intention of becoming a yoga teacher, others are unsure about teaching and then become powerful teachers! There is no ‘perfect path’ but through our training you will find out the perfect path for YOU!

Course styles

Yoga Alliance changed their allowances for course styles to accomodate for courses and students during the Covid pandemic. Course are now able to be 100% online, 50% pre recorded and 50% live content. This as made training courses far more accessibe from both a teaching and learning perspective.

We have updated our course styles accordingly. Knowing that a potential second wave is possible we have changed our Winter 2021 course to online, and we have created a variety of options for 2022, these course styles have been chosen to work around the seasonaloity of Covid, as well as Spetchley Garden’s opening seasons – There is no cafe or garden access from end of October to early March .

In person trainings are completely in person, but you also have access to our online course for additonal support, which means it is now far less strict if you have to miss a couple of days of the training.

Hybrid trainings mean that the pre recoded content will be online and live content will be in person. In person dates detailed below. If you cannot make those dates its not a problem, as you will have access to the content online, and can join another future live date either online or in person if needs be.

Online trainings are completely online, with both pre reocrded content online and live content also streamed online. All trainings have been very carefully designed to include the same volume of content both in terms of theory, discussion and practice. The online content has been ordered in exactly the same lay out as an inperon course ‘day’ which you can then study at your own pace. So the couse content, syllabus and ethos is the same, it purely depends how much in person content you prefer.
