This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required for conducting a beginner’s yoga class and is recognised all over the world. This training will also provide a continuing education pathway to gain your Level Two 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT® 500).
Our trainees tell us that at the end of the course they leave feeling inspired, fulfilled and ready to kick-start their dream career.
I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Emma Ceolin and Yogaventures, and what an incredible experience! Emma absolutely made this learning experience one in a million! Emma is a wealth of knowledge from asana, to pranayama, mental health and understandings of the brain. Emma created a safe learning environment and was able to reach a vulnerable side of self-exploration for all of us, without being confronting. Emma was approachable, compassionate and so kind, she went above and beyond for every single one of us in whatever way we needed. She tailored the course to each of us specifically and ensured we each got out of it what we needed. Thank you Yogaventures!
I first went to Emma's yoga for anxiety workshop, which was incredible She has such a beautiful energy and ability to calm a whole room of people just by being in it. I then recently completed her 200hr yoga teacher training and I couldn't recommend her any more highly! She is one in 7 billion! Not only is she beautiful, compassionate, caring and positive energy to be around; but she is FULL OF KNOWLEDGE!! This lady knows her stuff. Both about yoga, the body and mental health. If you ever want to get involved and aren't sure, I highly recommend Emma and Yogaventures, they provide such a personal and individual experience which you definitely can't find anywhere! Thanks Emma for being you and for all that you do! From one very grateful student.
I have just completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yogaventures - It was everything I could have asked for and more. Emma is caring, passionate, inspiring and was there every step of the way to ensure we felt supported and at ease. The handpicked picked teachers were amazing and all had such an abundance of knowledge, with different insight and advice. You are encouraged you to find your own teaching style and unique offerings. Even the most daunting components of this course were a breeze because of the structure, encouragement and support. I would recommend this course to anyone that not only wishes to dive deeper into their practice but to learn about themselves as it is a massive self-development and learning experience as well as a qualification. You will feel more than confident at the end of the training to begin teaching if that’s what you chose to do.
The first time I walked into Yogaventures studio, I instantly felt a connection with the beautiful space Emma had created and signed up for the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. As a Pilates instructor, I was looking to find the perfect balance to Pilates, however I was a little apprehensive about teaching a completely new practice. Emma ensured all of the modules and our assessment was broken down into bite-sized pieces. I absolutely loved delving further into anatomy with Annabel and finding my unique voice and self-love with Jacqui. By teaching assessment day, I was feeling completely prepared to teach thanks to Emma and the other knowledgeable Teacher Trainers. At the end of the course, I was feeling aligned, confident in my teachings, super clear on my goals and had developed so much as a person. I would without a doubt recommend this yoga teacher training to anyone who is looking for self-development, wanting to dive deeper into their practice or become a confident yoga teacher.
