Certified Yoga Teachers

Intelligent Yoga Teacher Training offers comprehensive anatomically focused training and ongoing professional development courses both online and from our Central London based studios.

Our course is fully accredited and certified by Yoga Alliance Professionals and we believe it offers one of the most progressive and thought-provoking training courses in the UK.

Ben Wright

Choreographer/Movement Artist/Teacher | Artistic Co-Director at Candoco Dance Company (2017-2020) | Lecturer in Dance Northern School of Contemporary Dance

"The IYTT programme has radically liberated my movement practice and expanded the way I hold space for others. The programme encourages deep attention to the realities of our bodies - to better support our ability to find freedom and facilitate our students to do the same. The course offers a sophisticated approach to study, rooted in sensorial attunement, philosophical discourse and the most up to date research in anatomy. It is a life changing experience, highly relevant for its insights into Yoga’s past and in its commitment to foster dynamic, curious teachers for the future."

Jody Barber

Neurological physiotherapist | Yoga teacher

"I deliberated for several years before finding a yoga teacher trainer who I hoped would resonate with my knowledge, skills and background as a neurological Physiotherapist.  Catherine Annis has by far exceeded my expectations not only does she have a wealth of experience as a yoga teacher, her anatomical and biomechanics and movement knowledge is extensive. Her professionalism and passion to teach, share and exchange knowledge and skills in yoga and movement has been so valuable in enabling me to develop as a yoga teacher but has also immensely enhanced my treatment approaches in my physiotherapy practice. The best training I have done in years!"

Dana Andrew

Yoga teacher

"So thought provoking , challenging, inspirational and progressive. All the trainers have so much experience, knowledge and passion to share.  I can't recommend this training enough.

The teachers are extremely generous with their knowledge and very supportive. They really encourage us to celebrate our individuality and creativity as yoga teachers and are not interested in churning out 'robotic' yoga teachers who teach by rote or teach set sequences. The students I have started to teach have responded really positively to this approach."

Michael Spark

Yoga teacher

"This is such a wonderful life-changing course.

Challenging and hard work but incredibly rewarding. Catherine and the other great tutors have given me so much confidence with their depth of knowledge and experience. The way the course is structured works really well.

I chose the course more to develop my own practice and learn more about yoga and was not convinced I would or could end up teaching. I feel very lucky to have found this course."

Marta Martinez

Data scientist | Yoga teacher

"This training course has been a truly transformational experience. I chose this course because I wanted to really deepen my practice. I wanted to explore, to learn, to question, to feel, to embody, to listen, to understand and to develop the confidence to "maybe" teach some day. And I can honestly say - it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Catherine and the team are remarkable teachers, not only for all the knowledge they generously share during the 18th months, but for the incredibly supportive and safe space they created for us to make this journey truly ours."

Caroline Wright

Yoga teacher

"The IYTT offers a caring space for a thought provoking experience of self enquiry and discovery. The language and teaching is rich in anatomical learning and the teachers are extremely knowledgeable in their fields of study. Highly recommended course."

Annie French

Yoga teacher

"Having just finished this teacher training course, I can honestly say it has prepared me for teaching yoga. It is taught with such rigour and kindness and challenges every aspect of yoga practice. Hard work, but highly recommended."

Anni Sanderson

Mindfulness teacher

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my training at IYTT. After many years of thinking my body wasn’t “good enough or flexible enough to be a Yoga teacher”, this training has deleted all those thoughts and given me the confidence to help myself and others investigate, explore, play and have fun with yoga practice.

The whole faculty have a wealth of many years of different experience. They teach in a safe and interesting way that encompasses the latest scientific research in fascia and anatomy plus using other modern movement and creative influences.

Highly recommended!"

Jo Racle

Yoga teacher

"I came to IYTT after extensive researching. Training to be a yoga teacher is a big investment, financially and time-wise, so I wanted to get it right. I like that I was vetted for the course; I like that I had to put a strong application in.

The course content is superb: interesting, varied and challenging, with proper homework. I can't actually think of anything that I would modify at all: the admin has been brilliantly organised, we have a WhatsApp group that is such a lifeline, and the dynamics between the students themselves, and between students and tutors is really warm and collaborative."

Katharine Giffard-Lindsay

Yoga teacher

"Professional, in-depth, fun and enlightening yoga teacher training - can't recommend IYTT highly enough!"

Caroline Wigart

Yoga teacher

"How lucky am I to have found IYTT!

This training has been immensely holistic and nurturing, it has opened me up for safe personal enquiry while also building up confidence to prepare us all to start teaching.

I have a deep respect for all the the teachers, they are inquisitive, knowledgeable and open minded."
