'Our teacher training course has met the stringent requirements set by Yoga Alliance Professionals. Our graduates are trained to the highest standard and are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance Professionals'.

The Yoga Bodhi Teacher Training Course (YBTTC) has been established by Simona Hernandez and Angela Roberts who between them have 40 years of yoga teaching experience. YBTTC is a 200 hour Yoga Alliance UK accredited course open to all those who would like to deepen their knowledge, practice or teaching of yoga. The YBTTC is not specific to any one school or style of yoga, but aims to offer a broad and thorough foundation for the teaching of Classical and Hatha Yoga in a clear, safe and confident manner. The course will be taught by experienced and recognised tutors. Student numbers will be limited to a maximum of 10. Simona Hernandez and Angela Roberts will be group mentors and one or both of them will be present for each module of the course.

Please note that parts of this training may be live streamed via Zoom if the studio is unable to remain open due to Covid-19 procedures.
