Zama Institute 200hr Yoga Teacher Training ONLINE


Join us for a registered 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course

Zama Institute offers a fully registered 200hr yoga teacher training course combining the best of Western science with Eastern Yoga philosophy and practice.

Upon completion, you will be able to obtain insurance to teach yoga. You will also be able to further your training with our 350hr Yoga Teacher Training course and post graduate specialities.

Our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training course is rich, diverse, and fully comprehensive. You will graduate as a knowledgeable teacher, capable and confident to deliver a world class standard in yoga teaching. You will be equipped with a scientific understanding of yoga, while experiencing a deep understanding of the spiritual dimension of the practice. We provide students with a broad range of learning experiences including workshops (optional for online students), online learning modules, audio recordings, video demonstrations, readings, practice journal and reflections. Upon completion, you will be ready to teach yoga and impart your knowledge with your students, feeling confident in your practice, ability, knowledge and experience.

Zama Institute Yoga Teacher Training courses remain true to yoga in its traditional form, while offering insight into modern forms and styles of yoga. You will learn hatha yoga asana, which will provide you with the foundation to teach most modern, popular styles of yoga. This will give you the best advantage when attracting students to your teachings, and help you to gain employment. You will also learn and experience the transcendental aspects of yoga, with a focus on mindfulness and presence.

Your teachers in face to face workshops will support you through your journey and impart their years of knowledge and experience with you wholeheartedly. For online students, our support team is ready to help you – we are always here to answer any question you may have! One on one virtual mentoring sessions are also available to purchase if you find you would like additional tuition.

Zama Institute respects the ancient yogic teachings and modern Western medicine, and gives students the opportunity to learn these sciences side by side. This will help you develop a deep appreciation of their value and give you a rich understanding of how you can become the best practitioner in your field.

Studying yoga will be an experience you will always thank yourself for. Whether you wish to teach, or simply deepen your practice and understanding, yoga study is a path of growth and development we encourage you to take.
