The Yogacampus Yoga Teacher Training Diploma is one of the top yoga teacher training courses in the UK, known for its non-dogmatic and authentic approach. We recognise that yoga, from its earliest roots in ancient India, has continually grown and developed – and continues to grow and develop as we bring its teachings into the 21st century. We firmly believe that every path of this great centuries old tradition should be acknowledged, explored and respected. We run this Yoga Teacher training course in London, York, and now in its second year, we are delighted to be offering this training in Manchester at our training centre in Deansgate in January 2018.

We believe that a great yoga teacher is a wonderfully unique combination of scientist, artist and spiritual guide, and seek to develop those abilities in each and every one of our students. Rather than focusing on any particular school or style of yoga or relying too heavily on a small number of teachers, the course draws on a range of leading teachers from a variety of yoga traditions. And as a not for profit body, we aim to keep our fees as low as reasonably possible.

The course was introduced in 2003 and is registered with Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour teacher training level, allowing graduates the benefit of an internationally recognised accreditation, and with the Independent Yoga Network. Graduates are also entitled to join the Register of Exercise Professionals, an organisation set up to regulate, help safeguard and promote the health and interests of people who are using the services of exercise and fitness instructors, teachers and trainers.

We know that there are many good yoga teacher training courses. So why train with Yogacampus? Because:

  • we have been around since 2003 and have trained well over 750 yoga teachers
  • we offer you a range of expert teachers, with eclectic backgrounds, but all with a passion for the yoga tradition
  • we offer a part time yoga teacher training course in London and Yorkshire
  • we give you the chance to select intensive study options with some of the worlds leading yoga teachers
  • we give you an experienced contact teacher to guide you throughout the course
  • we offer flexible payment plans and monthly installments
  • we encourage you to explore the yoga tradition in all its aspects and
  • we require you to think for yourself and find your unique voice as a teacher!

Perhaps our best testimonial is the fact that many of our graduates have forged very successful yoga teaching careers, including, in some cases, establishing their own yoga centres.

Over the 18 months of the course we will help you to deepen your knowledge of the science of yoga – anatomy, physiology, teaching techniques, philosophy – as we teach you how to use your artistic creativity in class planning and sequencing. Learn to teach asana, pranayama and meditation in your own individual way, from the heart, with awareness, compassion, sensitivity and clarity. By the end of the course you will be able confidently to convey your own experience of yoga’s transforming power to your students with ease and confidence. You must attend 12 non-residential weekend modules and one 5 or 6 day intensive of your choice with a member of our Visiting Teacher Faculty. The 12 core weekend modules of the course cover the following areas in manageable portions designed to develop your knowledge and teaching skills progressively and systematically:

  • Asana Principles and Creative Asana Teaching
  • Practical Anatomy and Physiology
  • Class Sequencing
  • Teaching Skills and Techniques
  • Subtle and Energetic Anatomy
  • Pranayama and Meditation
  • The History and Philosophy of Yoga.

You can find more information about the Yoga Teacher Training syllabus, course structure and content in the Course Prospectus, downloadable on the right-hand side.

Throughout the course, you also learn how to develop and deepen your own practice, and have the support of a contact teacher, who may or may not be a teacher on the course and may well be a Yogacampus graduate. Each contact teacher has responsibility for a group of no more than 5 students. The group meets at least 4 times during the course for discussion and teaching practice, and you have ongoing contact with your contact teacher throughout the course to discuss your individual progress and any concerns which you may have, and to assess your teaching as you approach the end of the course. We believe that this is a unique feature of our course – just one more reason why the Yogacampus course is special.

Please note that candidates must be computer literate and have daily access to the internet for electronic submission of written work and assessments.
