This 10 month long Liverpool Yoga teacher training course is designed to give you the skills to teach yoga across four levels of proficiency, as well as to assist you in developing your own practice. These skills are developed using a mixed methodology combining repeated practice, technical knowledge, pedagogic technique and philosophical discussion. Although a basic knowledge of yoga postures and philosophy is helpful, relative beginners to yoga are also welcome on the course.

This is because, like the practice of yoga itself, teaching the knowledge of yoga to others can be a profound, often trans-formative personal experience for teacher and student alike. Good teaching is considered to be the result of self-knowledge, and commitment to and holistic understanding of students’ needs and abilities, as well as mastery of yoga asanas (postures). Through this programme of practice, study and reflection, you will discover your own potential and qualities as a yoga practitioner and graduate with solid foundations and the confidence to begin teaching.

Liverpool Yoga Teacher Training Classes all take place at David Lloyd Leisure,
