yoga teacher training
Harmonise Training Academy is a 200hr & 300hr Yoga Alliance registered training school (RTS). Our courses take place at Revitalise who host a wide range of experienced yoga and pilates teachers offering a variety of classes to the local community. Now in our 5th year, we have delivered 8 successful yoga teacher trainings with excellent feedback and we are consistently evolving to improve our students learning experience. We know how important quality training is, what expectations of clients are and how to meet them. Our 200 hour yoga alliance registered course is assessed by qualified assessors to guarantee high standards, and goes beyond the assessment criteria set by Yoga Alliance to ensure you have the skills, experience and confidence to begin teaching successfully straight away. All of our recent graduates were teaching in some capacity within 2 weeks of passing their practical assessment – yes, that’s 100%.
We have a maximum of 12 students on each course, ensuring you receive a high level of tutor interaction and expert instruction throughout. You will be teaching from the first weekend, and we split the group into 2 or 3 smaller groups across 2 or 3 studios and bring in extra assessors so you have the opportunity to practice teaching to a small group of students with individual feedback throughout the course. We believe this stands us apart from other training schools and we feel very proud to see how much our students learn and grow from this experience. We are delighted that many students who join the course for self-development end up teaching as their confidence grows so much!

As Yoga becomes ever more popular, the position as a teacher is more sought-after too. While the quantity of teachers grows, Harmonise Training Academy believes it is the quality of teaching that matters most.
If you are looking to earn a living from your passion and want to train to teach Yoga in a professional, sustainable, knowledgeable and inspirational way, then Harmonise Training Academy is for you.
