Where to find a 200 hour Intensive Yoga Alliance Professionals Yoga Teacher Training in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex UK 

You can find a Yoga Alliance Professionals 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in actually Hove! We are based at Upstairs at Six on Western Road. 

With so many Yoga Teacher Trainings to choose from, why would you choose this one? Our Sundara Teacher Training gives you the foundation and tools to find your authentic voice and style as a teacher. It teaches self-inquiry, transforms and is for real people of all sizes and backgrounds and overall free of dogma.

Do you have a body?

Then you have a “yoga body.” Do you enjoy using it? Do you have strong ethical core values of not harming others? Then you are already a yogi! It's not about the venue, it's about the human being behind it. It's not about holding a certain posture, but how you hold yourself in life (do you only talk the talk but also walk the walk).

Are you ready to dive deeper into philosophy and history of yoga to modern yoga and learn about modern bodies? Do you want to learn about nerves and how posture affects them? Do you want to learn about some effective distribution of blood and energy? How to create stabilisation around joints?

Have you got a passion for yoga and would like to teach others about it? Then this course is the right for you. For more information please send me a message and I am happy to call, meet or email you back.

200+ hours. Yoga Teacher Training Brighton is for all those that wish to learn more and dive deeper into a yoga practice and self - inquiry and self-reflection that is necessary for personal growth. I support you with ethical marketing and sales savvy and mentoring all the way through and beyond. I like to think of a yoga teacher who transforms rather than performs. 

Register and come to a taster on 29 September at 4pm at the lovely Upstairs at Six Yoga Studio. Sign up for the next taster session in January. 

In need of a Mentor?

Are you a new teacher but need some more mentoring? I have been teaching in various countries since 2004 and I am happy to tailor-make a unique programme for you (need to find your authentic voice, need confidence in adjusting or designing sequences, need business support etc.

"I've been participating in teacher trainings since 2012 and have supported to train many students into amazing yoga teachers.

When you train with us you'll learn how to teach in a range of different classes and overall how to adjust to many different modern bodies. We don't give so much emphasis on performance, but rather positive transforming and overall teaching yoga in a loving way to your body using somatic movements and learning how to adapt to each person. Vinyasa Krama takes time and patience. In the past, I have participated in various teacher training in Barcelona and Brighton teaching specific lessons and giving lectures about Philosophy and Physiology and Anatomy (since 2012). Even thus this was a good experience, some of them lacked the ethical parts (read my blog about ethical business and yoga) and were conducted by people in the industry with much less time than I have and often I felt they lacked completely in the sense of mentoring beyond the time spent together.

Teaching is some kind of Karma, self-service to give love for this beautiful art to others. You will learn different styles of yoga (more dynamic vinyasa styles to restorative Nidra), philosophy and anatomy and physiology of yoga. You learn different ways of stretching and strengthening that allow for effective distribution of energy throughout your body. We will take care of you and provide you with help once you finish the teacher training. We help you to design a website, how to get your SEO and digital marketing going and overall how to be an ethical yoga teacher staying true to the values and qualities you represent to the whole. If you want to teach part-time or full-time, we give you advice on how to set yourself up and be a good teacher. You learn what your muscles can do for you (and not simply the names of all muscles which does not serve you at all) and how to use them in different postures. The art of inquiry is an important part of this training and we encourage you to feel and become more aware. Overall, you will learn how to use yoga in everyday life, on and off the mat and hopefully, this will lead to growth and finding your true purpose. This is a teacher training for real people and we invite all ages, sizes, and nationalities. We believe in true empowerment and embodiment. 

Even thus Yoga is not about stretching, strengthening and fitness or sport, you will learn how to improve your flexibility without feeling that you overstretch, improve your strength without feeling stressed (focus is now to decrease tension). You will become more relaxed without being passive, you will be “actively relaxed” and you will get empowered to take this with you into your daily life.
