Yoga Teacher Training

Part-time Yoga Teacher Training with Jon Moult and Tania Moutinho. Applications now open. Next course starts 15 Jan 2022.


Yoga Alliance 200hr Course – Hatha and Flow 

This is a non-residential, studio based course, with live online sessions in-between the weekends we spend in-person. In the event of a COVID lockdown we are are able to switch to fully online.

In 2020 and 2021 we produced more than 30 amazing new yoga teachers, thanks to a lot of dedication from our trainees and trainers and a little help from Zoom. 2022 will be the fourth year the course has run.

Barefoot Yoga Teacher Training is accredited by Yoga Alliance, giving you an internationally recognised qualification of the highest standards. The training will take place at Barefoot Birmingham Yoga Studio in Harborne, just a few miles from Birmingham City Centre and easily accessible by public transport.

Barefoot Yoga Teacher Training is a huge adventure and a transformative experience like no other. Prepare to fly!

What experience do I need?

As a minimum you will have been practising yoga for at least 2 years and be very comfortable holding the common asanas practised in Hatha or Flow based sequences. You’ll also be clear on why you’d like to teach or take your practice deeper. You do not need to know Sanskrit or to be able to perform advanced postures.

What we ARE looking for is compassionate, open-minded, yoga-mad life-lovers! Yoga teachers OF THE FUTURE to go out into the real world and make a difference to peoples’ lives on and off the mat.

How will I be assessed?

If it’s been a while since you sat down to write an essay, please don’t worry. You’ll be assessed by various methods, including journal keeping and class observation, on-line testing, written assignments and practical teaching sessions. The course has been designed to give you plenty of time to practise your teaching skills and build confidence.
