About our One and Half Month Training Program
Our Teacher Training Course delivers a comprehensive, theoretical and practical hands-on training program. Trainees emerge from our TTC as confident teachers with a strong and solid teaching skill set ready to begin their career. Alongside developing the art of teaching, trainees also gain a comprehensive understanding of the practice of yoga asanas, philosophy, physiology, adjusting, mantra chanting, chakras, anatomy, Ayurveda, mudras, pranayama and meditation and other traditional and contemporary Yoga techniques.
Our curriculum takes you through the essential elements required to deepen and enrich your own yoga practice and to teach students with confidence. Our expert team of teachers will guide you from the fundamental stages to teaching with ease.
We believe that the priority outcome of a Teacher Training Course should be the ability to teach a professional class with excellent skills when you complete your training. Our training courses are intensive because the curriculum is outcomes focused and we encourage only those with the specific goal of becoming teachers and deepening their practice to attend our training.
We greatly value the emotional, spiritual and physical investment students make to attend a Teacher Training course and this is why we place such a strong emphasis on substantial teaching time during our training courses.
Our training blends traditional Eastern teachings by Indian Masters of Yoga, Philosophy and Ayurveda combined with teachings from highly experienced and dynamic Western teachers. This marriage of backgrounds gives our students the opportunity to learn in an authentic Yoga setting whilst gaining the skills required to impart these teachings practically and relevantly in a global yoga environment.
Our curriculum has been developed and been shaped by Yogi BuddhaDeva. Our curriculum includes the following:
- Asana techniques including identification of common misalignment, including training and practice in Bandhas, Pranayama, Kriyas, chanting and meditation.

In conjunction with taking the journey to becoming a teacher, trainees study Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga Philosophy with an emphasis on how you can incorporate this into your own practice and day-to-day life. Chanting, meditation and pranayama provide spiritual structure and compliment the more physical practices of the curriculum.
