Teacher Training

All our teacher training programs (TTPs) are led by Jody Lawrance, Yoga Akasha’s co-founder and current director. She has been teaching yoga since 1999.

Our TTPs aim is to prepare trainee teachers with a firm, well-rounded foundation, so they can teach with knowledge of and confidence in many aspects of Yoga. The courses are also suitable for anyone wanting to deepen their own understanding and practice of yoga.

Our courses are fully accredited with The Independent Yoga Network and are designed to give trainee teachers the best foundation possible to deepen their own practice and be fully prepared to go on to teach. You cannot buy our certificates – you need to earn them!

Our TTPs are limited to 12 students so all can receive plenty of attention.
