200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is the official certification program for anyone who wants to become a Yoga Teacher OR for anyone looking to deepen and enrich their own personal yoga practice.
What does this mean… and does it matter?
Yes, it matters! It means that our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training will cover a curriculum outlined and approved by Yoga Alliance; ensuring that your certification is recognised and respected, internationally. We follow stringent ethical guidelines, practices and training standards so that you get the best education and training possible to step into your role as a Yoga teacher.
When you successfully complete this training, you will be a certified Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance.
The most unique benefit of our program is our proximity to nature as well as the animals of Cara Creek Eco Lodge, who really add something special to the experience. With that said, if nature and animals are not your thing, it is probably not the best option for you.
We maintain a teacher;student ratio of maximum 1 teacher trainer to 6 students. This way you get personalised feedback and support throughout the training, and will benefit from an intimate environment with both your yoga teachers and your fellow students. Providing a quality Yoga Teacher Training experience where every student gets the full attention of their teachers is our priority. Students get lots of time for practical teaching experience, and we even allow time for trainees to teach “real” classes for the community.
Our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program is holistic, diverse and packed full of all the elements required not only for certification but for personal growth and development. This program asks you to practice living, eating and breathing yoga and nature from the moment you arrive, until the moment you leave. It is deep and personal work, which is why it is a life-changing experience.
It is when we step out of our comfort zones and challenge ourselves that we discover what we are truly capable of.

When we asked our graduates to share some insight for prospective students these were the answers we received……
“It was a life-changing experience that offers teachings that you take with you off the mat and for the rest of your life”
“This course is for everyone no matter what level of yoga you are at. Enjoy getting fully immersed in all things yoga.”
“My Favourite part of the Yoga Teacher Training Program was the things we learned about, always in a comfortable learning environment in which we felt that we could speak openly and honestly.”
“Both Juan and Ashley have great teaching qualities, always open to suggestions and very attentive to our personal needs. Both are open to having a laugh which makes for a pleasant learning space. The programme was better than I had imagined”
