The Aim of our Yoga Teacher Training (YTT)

This comprehensive course offers a detailed insight into Yoga. The course covers all eight limbs of Yoga as put forward by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. The teacher training certification (TTC) is well designed and encompasses all aspects of yoga; on and off the mat.

Our 200 hour yoga teacher training is based on the ancient teachings of Hatha yoga. the teachers are equipped to offer deep insights and have a vast experience in teaching the 200 hour yoga teacher training course; with over 1000 students trained personally under them. Rest assured you will be in well experienced and safe hands at Om Yoga Academy.

Traditional Hatha Yoga is taught at Om Yoga Academy. There is a focus on safe alignment and the using of props. Our school takes a modern approach to human anatomy and individual skeletal variation. This means students are not forced to fit into a box of how their bodies should behave and move. These ideas couple perfectly with our small class sizes, and ensures each student’s body is individually assessed and handled appropriately. Along with asana practice (yoga poses), yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, pranayama (breathing techniques – literally the extension of the life force), meditation and kriya (cleansing techniques) are all explored on the course. Practical teaching skills are also taught. This includes sequencing, adjustments and variations. An introduction to Ayurveda is included on each saturday of the course.

Having completed the yoga teacher training certification (YTTC), you will be ready to embark on a journey that will take your yoga practice and teaching to a whole new level. The 200 hour teacher training course offers more than just knowledge. It will give you self-confidence, which will help you to evolve into a spontaneous yoga teacher, and help develop your own individual teaching style.
