Creative Calm Yoga Studio presents 200+hour Yoga Teacher Training

Here at Creative Calm Yoga Studio, we are super excited to develop CREATIVE trauma sensitive yoga teachers who wish to feel encouraged to find their own approach.

Yoga Teacher Training Manchester is in person at our Prestwich Yoga Studio

Our Yoga Teacher Training is a 200+ hour course and is currently accredited with IYN

The training is monthly on a Friday evening (6-9pm) and a Saturday (10-5pm) over 18 months. This timeframe gives you time to fully deep dive & embody all that you learn.

So if you are wondering what a yoga teacher looks like, look in your mirror.

Yoga teaching is about opening your heart and sharing the gifts of yoga with sensitivity and awareness, rather than fitting into a prototype of perfection as depicted on the front of some yoga magazines.

​Are you independent and wishing to teach yoga in an authentic way that is not just focused on physical posture & ‘perfect’ body image? Our course will include a great deal of self-development and self-enquiry so that your heart will shine through your teaching.

Course modules will include:

  • Embodied Anatomy & Physiology
  • History of Yoga & Vedanta Philosophy
  • Raja Yoga (Meditation & Concentration)
  • Bhakti Yoga
  • Trauma sensitive training methods
  • Hatha Yoga (Asana & Pranayama)
  • Other branches of Yoga to explore
  • Relaxation techniques/Yoga Nidra
  • Therapeutic Yoga
  • Integrating Pregnancy & postnatal students into a general class
  • Professionalism of Yoga Teaching
  • Lesson Planning
  • Class Management
  • Teaching and learning styles (NLP & the power of the voice)
  • Holding space & developing yoga community
  • Health & Safety
  • Marketing & business

​The training days will be supported by home study.

You will deepen your understanding of Yoga, its origins and philosophy, enabling you to share from a place of connection and awareness.
 You will learn to teach what you know, given a monthly map to help you build up a really good all round practice.

The course is co-created by Janine Hurley and Karen Hadgett. Karen will be your lead teacher and will host guest teachers delivering their field of expertise.

Karen will be bringing her knowledge of embodied anatomy, yoga, somatics & bio-mechanics. She will integrate other elements of yoga, including mantra, mudra and pranyama all neatly woven in with yoga philosphy. This will give you a rounded practise and enable you to teach with confidence & creativity.

Justine Wolstenholme: Yin
Olivia Rigby: Yoga Therapy
Hayley Simpson: Marketing as a new teacher (the Yoga Lady)
