Advance your teaching and your practice to become an Registered 500 hr Yoga Teacher

This is the real Yoga Teacher Training course. This is when you, as a Yoga Teacher, commit to studying on a much deeper level, to become a more empowered, skilful, centred  teacher and practitioner. This course provides a very high standard of education, which will inspire your teaching and your practice. 

We love all Yoga styles. We teach Intelligent Pirate Yoga (we borrowed that name too!)  – Vinyasa Flow in style but we borrow from all types of yoga. If it works intelligently we will use it it. We borrow from Ashtanga, Iyengar, Forest, Synergy, Pilates and Gymnastic movements.

Both teachers have been lead trainers on over 20 Yoga Teacher Trainings and have thousands of hours of teaching time registered with the Yoga Alliance. Both teachers have studied extensively specialising in yoga pose anatomy and anatomical advanced sequencing for peak poses.
