Yoga-Yoga Teacher Training
300 hour Yoga Alliance Professionals accredited course
October 2018 - September 2019
With Louise Cashin Registered
Senior Yoga Teacher (SYT) Yoga Alliance Professionals

The Yoga- Yoga Teacher Training Course (TTC) focuses on practical techniques and personal development to enable serious, experienced Yoga students to evolve into ethical, competent Yoga teachers. It provides a thorough grounding in the practice and theory of Yoga and is presented throughout in an interactive and experiential way to aid faster and more complete assimilation of the at times, complex information. We are a small group and this provides for a good teacher student ratio to maximise your opportunity to learn.

Welcome - a personal message from Louise Cashin Course Director
"I am delighted to share my knowledge, passion and long time practice of Yoga with serious students who wish to study Yoga in more detail for their own personal development and to learn how to teach this wonderful, life affirming practice to others. I see Yoga as an integral part of my life not only in the way I move, but in the way I think and interact with others. Yoga has taught me so much more than just practicing on the mat! My approach in designing and delivering this teacher training is to encourage you to fully embody the practices of Yoga so that you become an example to your students of good health, compassion and empathy- things I believe make for a great Yoga teacher"
