Designed for serious yoga practitioners who have a regular & committed practice; our 200Hour program consists of mentorship in addition to in-depth study of sequencing, alignment, philosophy, meditation, pranayama, anatomy, specialised yoga and the business of yoga, all at our studio in the heart of Edinburgh.

‘The intensive Yoga Teacher training course changed not only my life, but my perspective on yoga. It’s made me realise how important my own self practice is to help me grow in order to become a successful yoga teacher. Challenging but fun, it covered everything I needed to start my yoga journey and all the faculty of teachers were extremely knowledgeable & professional. I found our environment supportive and very connected with other students.’
