Yoga Teacher Training in Ireland
1 JUL - 25 JUL 2024
We're bringing our world famous Yoga Teacher Training programme to Europe this summer

Twice a year in Europe

We only bring our training to Europe once a year, to our second home in Ireland. It’s your opportunity to get traditional teaching close to home.

Summer in beautiful Cork

This is our eleventh year in the beautiful Irish city of Cork. We love the place so much that we now have two established Yoga Centres in the city.

Our expert teaching team

We have one of the best yoga training teams there is and we bring our same world renowned team over from India to train with you in Cork.


We are a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance US and Canadian Yoga Alliance, which means when you graduate from our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training you are automatically eligible to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with any of these major certification bodies. Our course syllabus also exceeds the requirements for all other alliances so you will be able to register with any yoga certification body in the world.

I would very highly recommend this yoga teacher training for those wanting to learn yoga from a traditional... I cannot express enough how grateful I am for choosing Himalaya Yoga Valley to equip me with the tools I needed to feel confident as a teacher. The course had the perfect balance between all elements of traditional yoga. The teachers were experienced, supportive, and knowledgeable across the board. I felt extremely safe throughout my time at the yoga centre, which was something I felt a little apprehensive about before embarking on my journey. I would highly recommend this teacher training for those wanting to learn from a traditional school that's close to the source of the yoga.

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.
