AYP Yoga Teacher Training

Note: The scheduled AYP teacher training course for September 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The dates and location for the next course will be anounced here.

AYP is a registered Yoga Teacher Training School with the Yoga Alliance, the largest registration of yoga schools and yoga teachers in the world. 

The Teacher Training Courses (TTC’s) are run as residential retreats, so they are a great opportunity to deepen your own personal practice, as well as to learn how to spread the joy of yoga to others in the world.


The courses cover the teaching aspects of Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama, Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas and also cover the practice of Samyama and Self-inquiry. They are 29-day immersion courses with three practice sittings a day as well as the lectures, workshops and other sessions nescessary to prepare people to teach AYP. Upon completion of the course, students are able to teach yoga and register with the Yoga Alliance as an RYT-200 (Registered Yoga Teacher).
