yoga for all
200hr teacher training

online training - live or recorded - complete at your own pace





led by dhugal (that's me), this 200-hour online training will begin with your first student, yourself. the focus of this 200hr yoga teacher training is to provide students with a sound knowledge of anatomy, teaching and practice. this foundation will serve as a powerful base from which to teach and guide your students through a practice that educates, inspires and heals.

i am honored to host students who join us from all around the globe and embraces each student’s unique strengths and insights to unlock each teacher’s individual potential and unique voice. the training is appropriate for the serious student who would like to start teaching yoga, as well as the student who would like to deepen their own knowledge and personal practice.

a regular personal practice is the most important foundation to being a great teacher and therefore we require a minimum of at least one year of regular practice as a requirement to attend. at the end of the program, you will come away with a strong foundation in the technical, inspirational and business side of yoga to create an exceptional yoga teacher and prepare you to begin teaching right away.

we’ll dissect active (yang) stretching modalities and their use and implications for health of body and mind. we will practice and analyse the 7 archetypes of yoga poses (asana) and look at how to apply these to the range of individuals who will come to your practice. this course will arm you with the key components for working with the broad range of those who enter the yoga space; athletes, older people, beginners and regulars... and learn how we can enhance their bodies and minds in a modern, stressed world.

this training is being offered in an online format for you to do it all live with us or complete at your own pace, all from the convenience of your home. this program is open to all. 

who this is for:

  • those who want to be a teacher (no matter who you are): great! in this training, you will learn everything you need to teach your first class by the time you finish. 

  • those who love yoga and want to go deeper. right on! you're covered here too. with the combined training, reading and discussion and interactive opportunities to learn, you'll be amazed at the depth of the yoga tradition.

  • those who want to add yoga magic to your personal training/fitness/sport expertise. fantastic! you already teach pilates or cross fit and you want to offer more to your clients. good news, everything you learn in this course will add huge value to other modalities you already offer to enrich the suite of skills to boost your business and clientele.

surprise yourself, empower your students



this training has four sections – each section is composed of live (or recorded) lectures, asana practices and homework to integrate the information.

we created this online training so you can do it live with me, or to be flexible with your schedule so you can complete it at your own pace. training hours will be available as we complete them. to receive your certificate, you must complete all hours 365 days from the start date. you’ll have unlimited access to all training handouts even after completion. most of all, i am committed to bringing you the highest quality of education to your door.

this yoga teacher training will count as 200 ‘in-person/contact’ hours towards your 500-hour yoga certification. these hours will be recognised by Yoga Alliance.
