Based around a practical curriculum that approaches yoga systematically, we believe in creating strong foundations for teaching safely and authentically. Drawing from traditional yogic practices, we will be exploring yoga as a holistic approach - combining traditional teachings with modern science.

It is important to note that our approach is traditional, but appropriated to modern times. We don't follow any specific 'style' or single lineage of Yoga. Instead coming from a holistic and applied approach, working with different elements from various teachings. We will cover mainly Hatha & Vinyasa approaches. We delve deep into ancient texts and practices, interpreting and relating them to everyday life.

How Will I Be Assessed?

Prior to the training there are two assignments to complete and return to us before the training begins. This is to help you become familiar with some of the course content and hit the ground running once the training begins.

We ask students to keep a written record of their yoga practice before coming to the training (15 hours) - we provide questions to help guide you with this. 

During the training there will be a number of small assignments and tasks designated to each subject. You will sequence mini classes, gaining feedback and confidence along the way.

During the final week of the course we ask each student to teach a 60 minute class entirely on their own, as well as completing a written theory exam.

Morning classes - incorporate asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting and relaxation. These classes are specifically themed and designed around the course content - building upon each day. They are a chance for students to fully immerse in practice.

I just completed my 200hr YTT with Wild Self Yoga and I cannot recommend them enough. 
I never expected to feel so supported, nourished, and inspired leaving my YTT. A truely transformative experience. 
They’ve kept the syllabus traditional and authentic, while creating an open space that allows one to relate the yogic concepts to a modern life. 
Their passion and dedication to providing their students with a space that allowed for retrospection (on and off the mat) was so, so appreciated. Something I really hope to relay to my future students. Big love guys xxxx - Sonja

Sonja yoga teacher trainee

I am so glad that I found Wild Self Yoga to be my guide on my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Rose, Nick and Xinia all have such great knowledge to share and each of them brings their own touch to the training making it informative as well as enjoyable. Having the opportunity to teach many times throughout the training starting off will shorter classes really helped to build my confidence to be able to teach the longer 60 and 90 minutes classes. I also feel confident and ready to teach and share all this knowledge I have gained.
I highly recommend them for anyone considering doing their Yoga Teaching Training. - Selena
