Winter Online 200 Hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training Course

January – March 2021

Have you ever thought about becoming a Yoga Teacher? Yoga Hero’s Winter Online 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training Course is perfect for anyone who would like to explore a career in teaching yoga, or would like to deepen their knowledge and practice of yoga.

Our Winter Online Teacher Training Course will focus on safety first; how to help students modify for their energy levels, strength and flexibility at each moment. A focus on safety throughout each practice keeps both student and instructor mindful and present.

Secondary to that is improvement; personal, professional, mental and physical improvement. At Yoga Hero, we believe every time you step on your yoga mat; it’s a hero move. It can be easy to turn on the telly, or go to the pub, so the decision to yoga or meditate instead, is the work of a hero! Every time you decide to do your yoga, or your meditation, or both, it’s a huge contribution towards that continual improvement.

We all have strength to build, or patience to cultivate, or philosophy to learn, or alignment to understand. As Yoga Heroes, understanding and respecting this is stage 1, and working towards your own personal and professional improvement is stage 2; which lasts a lifetime.

The benefits of Yoga Hero’s Teacher Training Course

Yoga Hero has provided an environment for teacher trainees to gain experience since the opening of the studio in 2015.

Our timetabled ‘Pay As You Feel’ classes are specifically designed to cultivate a space where trainee instructors can practice teaching people with a variety fitness levels, experience of yoga, whilst refining their style, their instructions, and their adjustments, under the supervision of an experienced instructor.

These Pay As You Feel classes will be available to teach by trainees on our Teacher Training Course, so you can start getting experience, and getting paid, as soon as we, and you, feel that you are ready.

This is a really amazing opportunity to kick start your new career in one of the biggest, and busiest, yoga studios in the North of England!

Teacher Training Online: How it Works

There are many benefits to attending an online training including:

  • You get to attend from your own home, so no travelling each morning and evening
  • We’re able to share information in a range of ways; with images and text in a digestible format
  • There’s real clarity to all the information
  • You’re able to record lectures for future reference

Angela Jervis-Read E-RYT 500 has been immersed in the world of yoga since 1998. She stumbled upon the science while seeking out a way to manage her chronic back pain. Within a only a few months of practising her physical pain and attitude towards life had shifted dramatically. It was at this time that she realised that her mission in life was to spread the magic of yoga around the world.

Known as a pain specialist, Angela’s intuitive nature fuels her ability to manipulate the relationship between mind and body. She holds a private practice in Toronto, where she works one-on-one with people suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, arthritis, repetitive strain injuries and other mental and physical discomforts. Compassion and kindness define her approach.

Sought out by studios around the globe, Angela leads international teacher trainings, retreats and workshops in the both the yin and vinyasa traditions.

Angela has an incredible depth of knowledge across yoga philosophy, anatomy, asana and how to teach yoga, and she is passionate about sharing this with others. Angela truly believes that being a yoga teacher in this day and age is a very important task, and one that must be taken seriously. Good yoga teachers have the power, and the potential to spread peace and calm, as well as triggering inspiration to be a better person. This, and much more, will feed into our yoga teacher training course.

Inspirations both and on and off the mat are: Jeannine Woodall, Hali Schwartz, Sarah Powers, Tom Myers and Rishi Sudhir of the Sampoorna Yoga School in Goa – India. She makes her home in Toronto with the love of her life and her two sweet dogs.
