This Yogaunlimited Integrated Yoga and Mindfulness 200hr Teacher Training course with two of the UK’s leading yoga teachers, Hugh and Sarah, takes place in Oxfordshire and Ibiza:
Learn to teach students how to work with their minds as much as their bodies, how to unlock flexibility and work with the stiffest muscle, the one between their ears.

- To teach effective mindfulness meditations that really enhance your students’ experience in your class.
- To teach students to recognise how mental states expressed in the body impact the experience of lightness, flexibility, balance and ease.
- To work directly with the energetic body in your practice and teaching.
- To work with mental and physical barriers.
- To discover the routes to effortless effort and intelligent strength for your own practice and those you’ll be teaching.
- To become familiar with the philosophy that underpins the teaching – the original somatic teaching of the Buddha and directly experience this in your teaching and personal practice.
Their primary focus is to give you the hands on experience to build confidence as a teacher, to speak, instruct, lead and observe. You’ll learn to live your yoga and make it a seamless part of your life. Find out more.
200 hr Lotus Warrior Vinyasa & Yin Yoga TTC, Spain
Join the Green Lotus teaching training school for a Warrior Vinyasa and Yin Yoga TTC at the gorgeous Suryalila Retreat centre in Seville, Spain.
This training teaches vinyasa style asana which is physically strengthening, breath-centered, opening and creative. Alignment studies and yoga anatomy are large factors on the course to give budding teachers the tools to teach safely and intelligently in addition to deepening personal practice. Teaching skills and the focus on each teacher developing their own unique voice to prepare them for the classroom after the training is also a large aspect of the TTC.
The subtle anatomy and Pranayama (energetics) are also explored both theoretically and experientially. The meditations are deepened with understanding of the yoga philosophy and helps connect students with their deeper nature in a life affirming and non-dogmatic way.
30 hrs of the TTC will be dedicated to Yin Training with Josh Summers. This training can also be taken as a separate training. Most people who do this training are qualified teachers who wish to teach Yin Yoga in addition to the other style they trained in. However on this TTC, we include the Yin Training, so teachers can teach both Vinyasa and Yin Yoga upon qualification. Find out more.
