Yoga Alliance Teacher Training

Our studio in Edinburgh has put all teacher training on hold, we will return when Goverment guidelines regarding COVID-19 tell us it is safe to do so!

Our Teacher Trainings aim to combine all of your life experience to make you the best possible Yoga Teacher.

Pantanjali’s Yoga Sutras focus on Yoga asana is as part of a collection of life skills. They include; self-study, cleanliness, contentment, discipline, devotion to a higher self, and non-harming, truthfulness, non-stealing, non-possessiveness, and maintaining your vitality.

In the eight-limbed approach to Yoga in Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga asana sits alongside, breath control, observing, withdrawal of senses, concentration, meditation, abstinence, and absorption.

At Nova Yoga we think anyone can be a Yoga Teacher. Our Teacher Trainings aim to combine all of your life experience to make you the best possible Yoga Teacher.

Making the progression from student to teacher can be daunting. Our mission is to make sure students understand they bring a wealth of skills to their Yoga, from their everyday life.

Yoga is not just asana, it never has been.

Being part of Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training is very special. It is truly life changing & transformational. It is a huge personal growth and healing experience.We learn how to connect Mind, Body & Spirit which in return helps in leading a more peaceful and fulfilling life and lifestyle. It is so much more than just a physical workout. It connects us to our spirit and fixes our busy and sometimes troubled minds. It helps us deal with traumatic experiences and connect with unseen beautiful forces.

The ancient wisdom and knowledge that we gain could be the most valuable asset we will ever attain, not only for ourselves but in being able to help others in their life journey. 

This training is unique in that you have the opportunity to complete it as an intensive 100hr or full 200hr with the option to complete your training in Edinburgh, LA, or Cyprus later in the year. There are also opportunities for you to gain work experience teaching in LA on our karma Yogi programme.
