 Ashtanga Teacher Training


Experience transformation through the practice of Ashtanga yoga


Refine your own Ashtanga practice and learn how to teach this transformative form of yoga in a 200-hour diploma course in central London.


Students will study Ashtanga yoga practice, philosophies and teaching techniques through Mysore self-practice, led classes and theory classes at Covent Garden’s Yotopia.


The course runs over four months, from 20th October to 23rd February, five days a week, in convenient early morning hours that can easily fit around most work schedules.  


Four days a week, Monday to Thursday, trainees will attend Mysore self-practice classes for between 60 and 90 minutes. These classes run from 7:00am to 9.00am.


On Fridays, tuition will be in the form of a one-hour led Ashtanga class (7am-8am), followed by a one-hour theory class (8am-9am), covering key aspects including the philosophy of Ashtanga yoga, correct alignments and how to safely make adjustments.


I follow and teach a rigorous and traditional method of Ashtanga yoga, as it is taught in Mysore, India. In the spirit of the original form of Ashtanga yoga, the focus is on breath and timing as much as the postures themselves. In this way, Ashtanga yoga is as much a spiritual practice as a physical one.


I closely follow the approach of my teacher, the late Shri K Pattabhi Jois, who I studied with in Mysore. Shri K Pattabhi Jois’ approach was 99 percent practice and one percent theory. My approach is 90 percent practice and 10 percent theory. At least 70 percent of this course will be focused on students refining their own self-practice.


The cost of this five-month, 200 hour diploma course is £3,500. 


There are two payment options. 

A - a one-off payment of £3,000 for the full cost of the course - save £500

B - a deposit of £500 to be paid by the end of September and four monthly direct debit payments of £750.


On completion of the course, trainees will receive a diploma certificate and one year’s free yoga teacher’s insurance.


The course cost includes free full membership at Yotopia for the duration of the course.


The course is suitable for any level, from beginners through to more experienced practitioners. 


There will be a maximum of 12 students in the class.
