Yoga Teacher Training (1).png

KWY Teacher Training was born out of our love for yoga, a practice that supports and sustains us through whatever challenges life throws in our way. Learning to teach yoga is an opportunity to deepen your understanding and practice of yoga and share the joy of this practice with others.


My 200hr Yoga Alliance Registered Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training offers you the skills, techniques and knowledge to become a skilled Yoga teacher. This course will provide you with a practical foundation in Hatha Vinyasa Yoga, meaning you start teaching from weekend two. This helps you to develop an understanding of the frameworks and building blocks of sequencing classes and the skills required to teach. Equal importance is placed on the essential foundational knowledge of yoga asana, pranayama, philosophy, anatomy, energetics, and the development of your OWN teaching style and voice.

My intention is for you to create your own committed daily practice, Sadhana. Through Integration.

My intention is to help you understand the roots, theory, and traditions of yoga. Through Education.

My intention is to teach you how to pass the teachings onto others. Through Teaching Methodology.​

Common questions:

I want to do the course, but I don't think I want to teach, should I still do it?

A: Yes! There are 3 main aspects of the training:

Education - INTEGRATION - Teaching Methodology

You will learn through lectures, readings, discussions, presentations etc. history, philosophy, anatomy, physiology, meditation, pranayama, mantra, mudra, subtle body anatomy. But the INTEGRATION is the bulk of the training, where you'll practice practice practice to embody techniques of what you're learning. You will learn how to teach others, which even if you don't plan on teaching, will only deepen your understanding of the practice. Even if you don't plan to teach a 'yoga class', you might (will!) find you can incorporate these teachings into all that you do

I don't have 2 years experience, can I still do the training?

A: Yes, I just want there to be a genuine interest and understanding of yoga. I'm not interested in you doing the splits, I'm interested in you being curious about the teachings of yoga.

Can I stay nearby for the training weekends?

A: Yes! There are plenty of options for accommodations in Grantown on Spey, I can help with that.

Will I learn to teach Yin Yoga? I love yin!

A: No, this is not a yin or restorative teacher training. You will practice those types, along with other styles, but it is a Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Training. You will learn a foundational Hatha Vinyasa sequence that can and will be adapted for different intensities, levels, populations, and different focuses (mobility, relaxation, strength, workplace, etc).

Can I teach at my workplace after this training?

A: Yes, you will be a certified yoga teacher after this training, once insured, you'll be able to teach anywhere you like.
