About the 200hrs Yoga Teacher Training Programme

This Teacher Training programme provides a grounded and logical approach that interweaves all 8 Limbs of Yoga. 

Karuna Yoga is the foundation that gives you the deep understanding of asana and how to intelligently place them in sequence. 

Power Dynamic Yoga is the next level which creates strong flexible bodies, a determined and disciplined mind and powerful internal connection to Source Energy. 

Well-Being Yoga is the soft gentle middle ground that through Pranayama and Meditation draws you deeper into an appreciation of the Universal principle of Oneness.


You will be taught all three styles of yoga throughout the course. Upon successful completion you will receive three certificates, one for each style. Along the way you may choose to focus more on one particular style by attending the relevant weekly classes. 

 

OUR INTENTION IS:

• To give you a solid foundation from which to teach any style of Yoga with confidence

• To ensure that you are able to deliver safe and effective multilevel yoga classes to a high professional standard

• To guide you towards a greater understanding of yourself and others.


The approach is holistic, focusing on how to bring mind, body  and spirit into energetic alignment with the present moment.

It is our sincere desire to help you to raise your energy up to a higher vibration so that you may  discover your  passion and live your life on Purpose.  


During the course of your training you will be guided through the many aspects of yoga from asanas and anatomy both physical and subtle, to yogic and metaphysical philosophy. You will receive unparalleled support for your personal, professional and spiritual development. 


While there is a theme and underlying structure for each weekend, each day of the course is unique in its unfolding as it responds to your needs and questions in the moment. We will touch briefly on some subjects where relevant and delve more deeply into others as necessary.

 

 We wish to inspire you to stand in your truth, teach from your heart, and guide your students intuitively as you consciously participate in the awakening of possibility in others.

Testimonials

We’ve loved every minute of our journey


"The course covered all aspects of yoga. The physical work strengthened my body beyond measure and I am now able to comfortably attain poses I barely knew before the course began.

Having qualified as a teacher I am now teaching classes myself, something I enjoy immensely.

Her depth of knowledge, constant care and encouragement has been an inspiration.

I wholeheartedly endorse Dawn’s method!" - Steve


"I thoroughly enjoyed the course, so much so that I didn't want to finish!

I now have a small class in a local church hall and I really enjoy teaching. 

I thoroughly recommend the Teacher Training with Dawn. She is very professional. Definitely the genuine article. " - Stephanie


"Having completed my Teachers Training with Dawn I am now teaching regular weekly classes and running my own yoga retreats.

Dawn has been an inspiration.

I can't thank her enough for her dedication, patience and caring but above all for being a brilliant teacher.

I would recommend Dawn's Teacher Training to you with all my heart." - Yvonne
