The yogahaven teacher training diploma has been running successfully for several years and is a fully established and recognised yoga teacher training school in the UK.
Upon graduating as a yoga teacher, students will have acquired all the skills needed to start teaching yoga, catering for different markets and students.
Our years of experience have shown us that students gain much more when fully immersed in yoga teacher training. Intensive training dramatically boosts confidence in teaching skills whilst simultaneously building a progressive yoga practice.
Working together for two weeks in a harmonious setting benefits trainee teachers even more. As a result we have sourced a spectacular retreat, just a four hour flight from the UK with the bonus of an economical price tag. The south coast of Morocco’s beauty is hard to beat!
As well as the Morocco Retreat there are two weekend modules that need to be completed. The entire course is spread over three months, giving you plenty of time to study, complete assignments and gaining all the required skills and knowledge to become a great teacher.
Our yoga teacher training courses are kept intimate and sell out fast. We only accept a maximum of 18 students at a time.
I feel like I have a complete understanding of the fundamental ideas behind Yoga, and importantly, I have the enthusiasm and confidence to share this with others
