Creative Calm Studio presents 300 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 300 hour course, accredited with IYN and Yoga Alliance Professionals. The training is one Saturday a month over 18 months. This timeframe gives you time to fully deep dive & embody all that you learn. We may also consider a Friday monthly training in the near future. Please contact us if this is something you are interested in.

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 studio owners Janine Hurley and Karen Hadgett. Karen will be your lead teacher and will host guest teachers delivering their field of expertise.

Lead teacher Karen will be bringing her knowledge of embodied anatomy, yoga, somatics & bio-mechanics. Janine will be drawing on her many years as a trauma sensitive teacher, incorporating her unique way of nurturing & developing you to be the best you can be. This will enable you to teach with confidence & creativity.

Guest Teachers:

Bridget Fitzpatrick: Mindfulness (Mindful Manchester)
Ewen Sim: Meditation
Justine Wolstenholme: Yin
Olivia Rigby: Yoga Therapy
Hayley Simpson: Marketing as a new teacher (the Yoga Lady)
