Part-time Yoga Teacher Training with Jon Moult and Tania Moutinho. Next course starts 15 Jan 2022.
Yoga Alliance 200hr Course – Hatha and Flow
“Barefoot provided excellent YTT training during 2020. When Coronavirus struck they adapted quickly and effectively, continuing to provide their excellent training. All trainers/teachers were experts in their field such as anatomy, asana, history and philosophy, Ayurveda, techniques and business, and were able to teach their specialist areas to a high standard. Their support and belief in all trainees was immense. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.” Wendy Salmon, Barefoot YTT graduate.
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 will 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.

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.
If it’s been a while since you sat down to write an essay, please don’t worry.
