Hot Yoga Liverpool - Yoga Classes


The Yoga Alliance accredited (200 hour) teacher training diploma takes place over 13 weekends. The training is broken down into contact hours, practice hours and home study hours. Spreading the course over 6 months will give you plenty of time to study, complete assignments and gain all the required skills and knowledge to become a confident teacher without having to commit to taking a month or more away from family, work and other commitments. Most importantly though, it allows you to digest the information and see it being used as you continue your own practice.


The course aim is to train and empower dedicated yoga practitioners with the necessary tools to teach with confidence, enthusiasm and safety whether it be hot yoga, children, adults or a different sector altogether. We believe in providing a nurturing and encouraging environment for students to develop their depth of knowledge and skill as confident yoga teachers. Our trainers come from a variety of yoga and holistic training backgrounds and provide a non dogmatic approach to teaching, encouraging you to become the type of teacher you want to be.

What is special about a Hot Yoga Module?

Think of it as if you are enrolling in a general yoga teacher training with an extra module. The Hot Yoga module will give you the confidence to start teaching in a hot studio as soon as you complete the course should you wish to. The Hot Yoga module will offer information on safety, sequencing and other aspects associated with teaching in a hot environment. With hot studios continuing to be popular, the additional knowledge will place yourself in a good position to secure yourself that teaching position, whether you wish to teach hot yoga or not.


The course is broken down into modules. The main modules include:-

  • Applied Anatomy & Physiology
  • Yoga/Hot Yoga sequencing and application
  • Asana Practice (how to teach the poses and an understanding of the benefits of each posture).
  • Pranayama and other breath work study (including the physiological benefits)
  • Making safe adjustments and understanding alignment
  • Finding your place as a teacher
  • Yoga History & Philosophy
  • The 8 Limbs of Yoga
  • The Subtle Body (including the chakric system)
  • Meditation Techniques & Visualisation
  • Voice Coaching & Presentation skills
  • Class Ethics, Legislation and The Business Aspects of Yoga
  • Ashtanga, Sivananda, Yin, Kundolini, Candlelight, Hot Yoga, Laughter and fun yoga are just some of the styles practised
  • First aid / CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Response) Training (optional)

Although a large majority of the course is practical there will also be coursework, multiple choice tests and home study. The course places a large emphasis on teaching you the skills to actually teach yoga, as well as developing your own practice through understanding the individual postures. Through learning how to teach the postures your personal practice also benefits greatly.
