200 Hour RYT Teacher Training
01 – 28 February 2021 

Emerging from the COVID-19 situation and national lockdown we are confidently and safely phasing back to normal studio operations over September/October.
This is crucial to the Teacher Training as there is no substitute for live, in-studio teacher & student engagement, group work & training and the inspirations of collective learning experiences.
The majority of the course will be hosted and conducted at the studio with some theory, tutorial and assignments online.
This gives you, the course participants, a lot more freedom and flexibility with your time over the month.
Of the 200 hours of formal training, you will do around 50 hours online throughout the program. The rest is in-studio and on location live training with our team.

Unlock the deep potential of your personal practice and immerse yourself fully in all elements of yoga. Whether intending to develop your capacity to teach and share yoga with others or as a personal enrichment of your relationship with all elements of yoga.

These are just some of the things you can achieve with Yoga Zone’s RYT 200 hour vinyasa-based teacher training programme – a one month immersion that becomes your ideal environment for genuine transformation and beautiful change.

The program runs weekdays and Saturday mornings, covering 200 hours of formal training which include the 50 hours online.
Daily time schedules are therefore variable.

Registered with Yoga Alliance, you will receive an accreditation certificate.

The entire program is divided into thematic areas or modules. Each with theory components and predominantly of practical and experiential learning. Required and suggested readings compliment additional knowledge prior to and during the course.
It is focused on developing a profound understanding of the themes and a deep appreciation for the tenants of yoga and its practice. Integrating more of it into our knowledge, practice and lifestyle streams.
You will not only gain insight and knowledge but also enhance body and mind through daily asana and meditation practices.
There are no prescriptions, denominations, religions, infringements or prejudices for or of any individuals or beliefs. The only practical requirement is that a person has some basic experience with yoga practice and is in an appropriate state of health for the course.
Our teaching and training is informed and inspired by the thousands of years of yoga tradition (tried, tested and refined) and by the extensive resources, knowledge and community we have in our contemporary world. Hence a course with a long reach from ancient knowledge to modern application and practice.
The teaching team is comprised of Yoga Zone senior teachers with decades of experience, doctors, scholars, body therapists and other experts. The majority of the program will be conducted at the Yoga Zone studio, between our 2 yoga rooms, but will also include study at an Ashram and other yoga institutions throughout the month.
Limited to a small group of only 12 places, we keep it more personal and in-depth to best deliver what is most enriching and inspiring for all.
