Our blended online yoga teacher training course has been created to develop, knowledgeable, responsive and confident teachers who teach yoga based on a solid understanding of both the fundamental workings of the body and an appreciation of its natural intelligence. We believe it takes time and commitment to develop great teachers. IYTT provides well over 200 hours of direct contact with senior teachers, backed up by ongoing assessment and supportive mentoring and supervision.
This blended online yoga teacher training course is fully recognised and accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and by Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK).
It has been created for teachers, trainee teachers and students wishing to become teachers and for those who wish to significantly deepen their knowledge, practice or teaching of informed, safe and effective yoga, breathwork, meditation and other related subjects.
Schedule & Assessment
The IYTT schedule has been adapted to respond to the opportunities of online teaching whilst maintaining the immediacy of in-person teaching. The course will be delivered in a modular format providing an immersive and cohesive learning experience, both online and in-person.
We continue to follow advice from the Government and the British Wheel of Yoga and reserve the right to deliver the Intelligent Yoga Teacher Training Course entirely online until it is safe to return to the yoga studio. For more information, please visit the FAQ.
There are 6 training modules in total on this blended online yoga teacher training course. Modules 1, 2, 4, 5 & 6 are five days each, and Module 3 is four days.
We plan to deliver Modules 1 and 6 and the June mid-term assessment in-person. All other dates will be delivered online via Zoom.
Training days run 9-5pm. In addition there will be a mock exam assessment and a final exam, which will be externally assessed. Mentoring and supervision meetings will be organised at suitable intervals during the course.
This blended online yoga teacher training course runs over 18 months, providing well over 200 hours of direct contact with senior yoga teachers. There will be a maximum of 18 trainees, to ensure plenty of time for individual attention and mentoring throughout the course.
Our aim is to provide a thought-provoking course content, which actively encourages students to question current teaching methods and alignment cues. During the course, we will encourage trainees to develop a deeper understanding of how they work with, and relate to, their bodies, and how to adapt that understanding to create new, healthier approaches to living and moving.
Our approach to yoga is driven by the most current scientific anatomical and movement research and we hope to produce intelligent, skilful and responsive teachers, who nurture their practice and teaching of yoga through a consistent and mature personal practice.
The course content will be practical and skills-based, and will also facilitate a personal journey of exploration and discovery. Material will be delivered in a variety of ways including formal lectures, guided practice and asana technique classes, group work, teaching practice and individual study and reading. The course covers four key areas:
asana, pranayama and meditation
anatomy and physiology
mentoring and supervision
As part of the course content we will explore the place of yoga in our modern lives, and show how it remains current and relevant to practitioners in the Western world. The study of anatomy and physiology is highlighted on this course, and will be delivered by renowned teachers Peter Blackaby and Gary Carter, providing one of the most comprehensive groundings in anatomy of any teacher training diploma in the UK.
