Skill Level
Our Yoga Teacher Training programme is perfect for yoga practitioners who...
Want to become a certified Yoga Teacher

Our training is designed to gradually build your confidence in actually teaching a yoga class. So when you leave you’ll have all of the skills and knowledge you need to start your new life as a Yoga Teacher.

Want to elevate their personal knowledge and practice

Lots of people have taken our trainings with no plans to become a Yoga Teacher and just want to build their knowledge of yoga and improve their personal practice. Our four week course is the perfect foundation for anyone who simply wants to learn traditional yoga and integrate this incredible practice into their life.

Style of yoga
During the Yoga Teacher Training programme you will learn a unique blend of traditional yoga styles:

Ashtanga Vinyasa

Our Level I Yoga Teacher Training Practice Sequence is founded in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that builds strength, flexibility and focus.

Iyengar Yoga

To compliment the Ashtanga style we also teach the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga, particularly focusing on precise alignment in poses, and the use of props and modifications to make the practice safe and accessible for all levels.

Himalayan Tradition of Yoga Meditation

Our school director Yogacharya Lalit is a student of a long tradition of yoga from a direct line of Himalayan Masters. Lalit studied under his master Swami Veda Bhati and Grandmaster Swami Rama, who founded the famous Himalayan Institute, and on our Yoga Teacher Training you will learn meditation and philosophy in alignment with this ancient lineage.

Our Yoga Teacher Training in Cork is non-residential. We have a number of recommended accommodation options in the city that are affordable, clean and just minutes from your training location.

Training Locations
