Teach the Way that Works for YOU

Enrol in the Yogacampus Yoga Teacher Training Diploma for an authentic, inclusive and non-dogmatic learning experience with one of the UK’s longest-running yoga teacher training courses.

Rather than limiting your focus to any particular school or mode of yoga, our in-depth training covers a wide spectrum of yogic teachings, empowering you to embody your practise and teaching style without ego and dogma.

Over 16 months, immerse yourself in the lineage and traditions of yoga and develop your own unique teaching style that uses yogic principles to enrich 21st century lives.

What do our Students think?

Since 2003, over 1000 teachers have graduated from this program into well-rounded and confident yoga educators (some of them teaching at our sister studio The Life Centre, and on the course as Contact Teachers). Here’s what they have to say about their training:

Amy Foster (2020 graduate) believes “it’s actually one of the best experiences of my life! It’s been incredibly hard work at times and yet ultimately it’s been a very rewarding and enriching journey with many unforgettable moments of hard graft, self-discovery, wonderful kinship and laughter!

David Balfe (2019 graduate) tells us “the thing I liked most about the course is that there was no dogma. It combined a pragmatic and scientific approach with philosophy and art, we weren't forced to follow a particular set of beliefs or methods. We were entirely free to explore yoga in our own way which enabled me to follow my own instincts and develop my own values as a teacher and practitioner."

Cultivate Expertise

Yoga embodies science, spirit and art. Deepen your knowledge of its core elements – from anatomy and physiology to teaching techniques and philosophy – as we show you how to weave your artistic creativity into class planning and sequencing.

Learn in your own individual way; from the heart, with awareness, compassion, sensitivity and clarity.

  • asana principles and creative asana teaching
  • practical anatomy and physiology
  • creative class sequencing
  • teaching skills and techniques
  • subtle and energetic anatomy
  • pranayama and meditation
  • the history and philosophies of yoga
  • Sanskrit pronunciation.

By the end of the course, you will have learnt the language, skills and expertise to share your experience of yoga’s transformative power with your students with authority and ease.

Community and Human-centred Learning

Join a true community at Yogacampus. With small intakes and teacher mentors, we personally nurture you to become the best teacher that you can be. 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 valued students.

Quizzes after every module test your interpretation, understanding and progression, and are resources you can return to as your teaching evolves.

We have a dedicated teacher training board of Catriona Brokenshire, Liz Lark, and Sarah Litton leading much of the educational content. Together, they bring decades of multi-disciplinary yoga teaching and yoga teacher training expertise to your course.

You also draw on the expertise of other leading teachers, including Susanne Lahusen (experiential anatomy), Dr. Graham Burns (yoga history and philosophy and Sanskrit), Raquel Alves (asana), Mina Hosokawa (life as a yoga teacher), Paola Ceccarelli (anatomy and physiology), Jane Craggs (philosophy), and Adelene Cheong (restorative yoga). Your Contact Teacher is likely a fellow prior graduate of the course, and will be your personal guide supporting you on your own journey.

This course is for those who want to:

  • incorporate yoga teaching into your existing career or hobby (you might have a job like physiotherapist, social worker, carer, teacher, coach);
  • learn over an extended period, doing the course alongside other commitments (e.g. not packing up and going away for a month to study!);
  • access to readings materials, practice quizzes, videos and more via a state-of-the-art online learning system;
  • have a better understanding of how your own practice influences your teaching;
  • confidently develop content & teach groups, individuals, in-person classes, online classes, and workshops;
  • engage in the ‘bigger’ learning of integrating yoga into your daily life;
  • start teaching early on in the course and be supported and mentored while you develop your own voice (unlike a short course);
  • engage in a course that encourages exploration and self-development; becoming a yoga teacher who embodies compassion and empathy
  • learn with a faculty of specific experts in their fields (plus a core group of experienced teachers with knowledge of a wide range of yoga traditions);
  • hear different viewpoints – versus a course with a single teacher – informed by both depth of tradition and current knowledge;
  • be encouraged to explore your own understanding of different perspectives;
  • be able to rely on multiple layers of support (the dedicated Yogacampus Office team; our Board; and Contact Teachers);
  • receive practical feedback and support engaging with contact teachers in small groups;
  • be backed up by an established but independent Board (who oversee the course quality and student progression);
  • build connections and networks across the country with Yogacampus students studying in other locations;
  • engage with current issues faced by yoga teachers today, in discussion groups with other current students and course graduates.

Accreditation

The course is registered with the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour teacher training level, allowing graduates the benefit of an internationally recognised accreditation.
