Teacher Training at  Yoga for Harmony  

Our next 300 hour Teacher Training Course starts in September 2024  
and will complete in December 2025. 
Yoga for Harmony is a Registered School with Yoga Alliance Professionals (YAP) 
and the course is fully accredited with this organisation. 

Why choose Yoga for Harmony for your Training?  

There are hundreds of yoga teacher training qualifications available, but not all are delivered by tutors/organisations actually accredited by a recognised body to train prospective yoga teachers. Many are quick and cheap, but do not include the depth of learning needed to be fully equiped, capable and well informed tutors. Our course offers a considerable depth of tuition, information and personal experience in the teaching arena, a lot of which is not accessible on shorter courses.  
You will finish feeling confident, well informed and practised in taking your own classes whether they are in the private venue hire or the health club field. 
Choosing an accredited course, such as the Yoga for Harmony course, will ensure you gain an industry-recognised qualification at the end of it.  
That means it will meet the exacting standards set out by the yoga profession.  
Upon completion of the Teacher Training course, graduates of a certifiied Yoga Organisation will be able to register with the YAP as tutor members  
and will be able to apply to them for teaching insurance.
