TRAIN TO BE A YOGA TEACHER

LEVELSIX is pleased to announce our first 250 hour yoga teacher training programme. Our team of accomplished teachers will provide a supportive environment for learning, creating and studying yoga to deepen the understanding and practice of yoga.

The programme will fully certify teachers to work in different environments, from teaching group yoga sessions at studios and in the workplace to individual yoga interventions. Reflecting the core values of LEVELSIX, it will also incorporate skills development for teaching yoga to community groups.

This course is certified by Yoga Alliance USA which is a fully recognised Registered Yoga Teacher certification.


COURSE DETAILS

All the modules will be based on relevant theory, and will be experiential and engaging.

All our trainee teachers will be mentored to feel supported and guided during their training and beyond.

Students will be able to enjoy half price classes at LEVELSIX during their training to enable full immersion in the practice of yoga and completion of the required practice hours for the course.

A learning environment for students to reflect, practise and give and receive feedback, including discussions, Q+As and mock auditions.

Students will be insured during their training to carry out practice classes.
