The focus of our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Intensive is to develop yogis and yoginis into confident and knowledgeable practitioners. We teach a variety of techniques and practices to help students better understand themselves, develop a personal practice and learn how to use yoga to facilitate change within.

We run our courses with an attitude of openness, exploration and fun so that students can get the most out of their yoga intensive experience. We encourage students to work according to their abilities and desires and respect their own boundaries but still work to expand and deepen their practice.

Our asana classes are varied, reflecting the breadth of our teaching experience and our preference for diversity. Students can expect to learn asana from the Vinyasa Flow tradition, as well as elements of Viniyoga, Therapeutic Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Yin Yoga styles. The subjects that are explored in the discussion section are first actively practiced in the Breath and Asana classes, so that students gain experiential knowledge.

Class sizes are deliberately intimate, with a maximum of 20 people per class, so that our teachers can give students high quality attention and care.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

21th April – 14th May 2018


2nd September – 25th September 

Yogagati – a state of union and of being united together; a fusion of balance, simplicity, momentum and motion. Yogagati is more than a name; it’s a philosophy for life.

During the Yogagati 200 hour teacher training program, we will guide you on a journey of transformation from student to teacher.

We don’t believe in just teaching you the basics needed to obtain your certification. We believe in inspiring you to unite body, mind and spirit to discover the limitless possibilities held within you.

The Yogagati program is designed to empower participants from day one. During the three-week intensive course, we guide students through the methodologies, techniques and principles essential to effective yoga instruction.

Alongside the practical element of the course, lessons will include a focus on the principles of sequencing, demonstration, alignment, adjustments and modifications; anatomy and physiology; an exploration of yoga philosophy and in-depth consideration of the business of yoga and what it takes to make a career out of teaching yoga.

Practical lessons are delivered in our Yogagati flow. The foundation of which derives from and combines traditional forms of Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga. Yogagati flow is safe but challenging – physically, emotionally and spiritually – creating room for your own personal growth.

At the Yogagati School, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead we create a respectful, stimulating and relaxed learning environment that ensures every individual is heard and supported. Furthermore, our course is taught over three weeks, ideal for those with limited time who want to obtain Yoga Alliance accredited certification.

Classes are limited to 20 participants to ensure students receive the level of attention they deserve.

While we focus primarily on providing yoga teacher training programs, we also offer the opportunity for additional certification in Reiki, a spiritually empowering course that will nurture your inner healing abilities. Please indicate your interest during registration and we can incorporate the Reiki course into your program.

Our Yoga Teacher Training is a holistic program; to understand Yoga you must first understand Self… body, mind, and spirit. The Chakana, or Andean Cross, acts as the guide and foundational structure for the course. The Chakana encompasses a lower world, middle world, and upper world and within each world we will focus on different types of movement, diet, and meditation. We bring to life the ancient teachings of Yoga through accessible spiritual lessons, a solid foundation in Yogic philosophy, and a daily Yoga practice, called The Kula Flow.
