200hr yoga teacher training


Our objective is to train passionate, enthusiastic and compassionate teachers who pride themselves on their commitment to sharing yoga with everybody.

Nourish Yoga training’s 200 hour Teacher Training offers an internationally-recognised qualification (Yoga Alliance), which meets strict syllabus requirements.

You’ll be trained in a contemporary vinyasa flow style, with a non-dogmatic approach that enables you to find your unique teaching style & voice.

Our training groups are small and personal, we endeavour to get to know you, working side-by-side to make your training journey supportive, nourishing and transformative.

Course Outline

Nourish Yoga Training’s 200 hour teacher training is broken down into 23 modules, covering topics including asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, ethics, sequencing, and anatomy. Our syllabus is grounded in an evidence-based approach to yoga practice, and we’ve endeavoured to go beyond the standard 200 hour curriculum to include specialist topics such as:

  • Chair & accessible yoga
  • Cultural awareness & appropriation
  • Trauma sensitivity
  • Including pregnant students

We believe there’s no better way to learn than through experience, which means that you’ll be teaching as early as your first few modules.

Teaching practice will become more autonomous and independent as the course progresses, ensuring that you graduate feeling confident.

Flexible Delivery

We know how exciting it can be embarking on teacher training, and also how frustrating it can be if your journey is delayed by an inflexible training schedule.

Our 200 hour teacher training is designed to fit in with your life, your schedule, and your commitments!

Our flexible modules are designed to be taken in almost any order. As long as you complete all 23 modules within 18 months of commencing, you can take our modules in any order that suits you and your lifestyle.

We run flexible weekend streams (Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-6pm) and a mid-week flexible stream, running Mondays 11am-5pm during school term time. Streams are staggered throughout the year, meaning that there are plenty of opportunities to catch up on modules and craft your own schedule.

You can stay with a whole stream from start to finish, completing the course in 9 months (attending on average 3 weekend days per month). Or you can spread things out and tailor a schedule to suit you, taking up to 18 months. It’s up to you!

Graduation Requirements

In order to graduate and receive your certificate, you must:

  • attend and participate in all modules
  • complete written assignments
  • complete pre-reading

We don’t believe in exams! We think that assessment should enrich & support your learning process, not create stress and worry. All our assignments are designed to suit your learning style & pace, they’re not meant to be long, arduous or overly technical.

Written assessment:

  • Lesson plan
  • 4 x short anatomy quizzes
  • Philosophy assignment
  • ​Teaching reflection

For some topics we assign manageable amounts of pre-reading, with reading questions to help to engage with the reading.

"An amazing yoga teacher training programme: you can completely tailor it to your needs as a trainee (busy life, learning speed, etc.). ...Harriet McAtee is an amazing and compassionate lead trainer. The whole team of highly-qualified trainers supports and encourages you throughout your learning journey. Every module was useful: either learning something completely new or revisiting something previously learnt from a different angle."
"[The] teacher training is remarkable. It is inclusive and adaptable. There are options to take the training in many different ways - as an intensive or spread out, and the modules can be taken in any order. This allows a huge degree of flexibility for the trainees. The syllabus is varied and covers everything I would expect in a 200 hour program, plus extras such as teaching special populations. ...All of the teachers are knowledgable, warm and open to questions and challenges. The training has been a transformative experience for me and I am now ready to teach confidently... I can not recommend this training highly enough."

If you feel the desire, passion and interest to do your yoga teacher training, we want to make that happen for you!

​You don’t have to be a spaghetti noodle or acrobat, or have years of experience. The only questions you need to ask yourself are: do I enjoy yoga? do I want to learn more?

​We welcome trainees of all ages, shapes, abilities & experience levels.

If you have a history of injuries, that’s ok too! You can get in touch with us to discuss beforehand, but often injuries can be the best teachers.

It sure is! Yoga Alliance International have over 80,000 yoga teachers world wide and are an internationally recognised accreditation body.

We chose to be accredited with Yoga Alliance as our students are international folk and we appreciate their rigour.

After you graduate you will be eligible to register as a Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher 200 Hours).

The core texts will be referenced in class and you are required to have a copy.

Core Texts:

Absolutely! There is plenty of opportunity to practice teaching during the course. We’ll also provide you with as much support as you need to start teaching outside of the training hours.
