Why we’ve created this programme
What our students told us is that they want the opportunity to deepen their practice, learn more about their bodies and integrate a sustainable, holistic yoga practice into their daily lives.
We have created a course that offers just this, it’s called the Practitioner Immersion Programme and offers 150hrs of intensive training. Giving you the opportunity to really delve into your own practice, learn Sanskrit and philosophy and through class and group tutorial time, develop and sustain a holistic yoga practice that supports your own health and wellbeing. It gives those who don’t wish to teach the opportunity to focus on their personal practice at a new and challenging level. And for those who do want to teach, the opportunity to develop the basic knowledge, skills and confidence in their own practice before learning to leach others. To be an exceptional teacher, you have to have an established practice and this programme will support you to develop that for yourself.
The course is 150 taught hours with optional home study and practice. The course is taught over 11 months, beginning with a 5 day intensive followed by five long weekends.
We would recommend having a minimum of 2 years’ practice. If you have been practising for less than 2 years, please get in touch and we can discuss your application.

Our programme is run by Yoga Alliance Professional Senior Teachers Jock Orton and Lucinda Pimlott. Please click here for their biographies.
“This training has exceeded my expectations; it has been life changing! I enrolled to develop my own practice; I thought it would mainly be my asana that improved, I didn’t realise that I would discover an inner calm and increased confidence.”
