The 200-Hour Sonesha Yoga Teacher Training Course is suitable for individuals working full-time as it can be completed part-time over a period of only twelve months. Course content is spread across this time to allow for better integration and to receive an in-depth understanding through practice and application of skills and theory learned. This allows for a fuller development of skills and understanding as compared to short courses.

For the person seeking peace of mind and balance in their life, your skills as a Sonesha Yoga Teacher will have prepared you to meet all their needs. For those who are already very fit and strong, you will be able to extend them to reach an even greater level of satisfaction. For you as a Yoga Teacher, your experience will allow you to help more people with a wide range of physical conditions to find healing through the path of yoga.

Sonesha 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training presents the fundamentals which will allow you to extend your knowledge in order to specialise in various fields of yoga. This includes Yoga for the Elderly, Yoga for Children, Yoga Therapy, and more – all as you progress into the Certificate and Diploma levels of our Sonesha Yoga Teacher Training.

As part of our Course Syllabus you will be immersed in the finest tradition of ancient yoga practices such as Patanjali Ashtanga (also known as Raja Yoga) which grew into Hatha Yoga before expanding even further into Kundalini, Vinyasa, and Ashtanga Yoga – and more.

The 200 Hour Sonesha Yoga Teacher Training Course introduces you to several basic practices of yoga to create a strong foundation in order to effectively structure and efficiently teach a yoga class. In the higher levels of our teacher training we delve into the finer essences of various yoga lineages to provide you with a comprehensive program which can be adapted for various applications.

Sonesha Yoga Teacher Training will allow you to have an in-depth understanding of yoga practice whilst developing your intuitive connection with yoga in order to unite with the heart of yoga.
