HOW TO APPLY Fill in the online application by clicking Apply Now under your preferred date above. Once accepted on to the course you will be sent an email asking for £1450 non–refundable deposit to reserve your place. The remainder of the teaching cost is due four weeks before the start of the course. We aim to keep our fees reasonable, great value and manageable for people from all walks of life. If you would like to speak to us about a Pay-As-You-Go payment plan please do get in touch. Your investment will include two weeks accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinners with fresh fruit, tea and coffee facilities and snacks available each day. NB: At both locations the kitchen staff have one day off. Breakfast and lunch are provided, but the evening meal is not. You will be able to take advantage of one of the many wonderful eateries in the area at your own expense, but this is always an evening of joy for our groups. You are responsible for paying for and organising your own flights. The two weekend modules are also included, with no hidden costs, but you are responsible for finding your own accommodation in London. ACCREDITATION On successful completion of the yogahaven Teacher Training course students will be accredited as 200hr international yoga teachers. This means students are entitled to use the letters RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and benefit from a discounted rate for yoga insurance through yogahaven. We can also arrange Trainee insurance while you are still in training. We also support the Independent Yoga Network (they're a similar company to yoga alliance) so you could also register with them should you wish to. Once certified after the yogahaven Teacher Training students are then free to teach yoga safely to any markets and students. A yogahaven 200hr course is an internationally recognised certification which you can use wherever you may roam. In the unlikely event that outside circumstances beyond our control, e.g. war, natural disasters, etc., oblige us to withdraw from the country originally offered for our training, we shall offer an alternative location for the training. If none is available, you can defer to another course. The company will not refund course costs but will offer alternative options. The company is not responsible for flight costs and we therefore recommend getting your own insurance. OPPORTUNITIES Upon graduating as an accredited yoga teacher with yogahaven, students will have gained all the skills needed to start teaching yoga with confidence and compassion, easily catering for different styles of yoga and the individual needs of students. Though our history at yogahaven is mainly hot, you will learn a complete sequence suitable to teach in many environments from corporate classes, privates and gyms to hot studios and of course non - hot studios too. One of the strongest testimonials to the success of our training is that all the hot yoga teachers within the family of six yogahaven studios across the UK have trained with us. And when the course ends, the support doesn’t. Our teaching graduates are encouraged to stay in touch, and after training there are opportunities to lead donation-based Karma Yoga classes for charities at our studios . A high percentage of graduates have gone on to teach across studios worldwide, with some even having opened their own studios. Their success is our joy.
