What experience/qualifications do you need for the Level 1 Yoga Instructor class?
A passion for yoga and a desire to transform your life for the better is all you need to join us on our Level 1 Training. Over the intensive we will teach you everything you need to safely and effectively teach yoga to others along, with tools for happier, more authentic heart-centered living.

I am fairly new to yoga. Will I be able to attend the training?
As the course is not purely asana (physical postures) based it does not matter if you do not have an advanced practice. You will be learning much more than just the asana postures. All we ask for a Santosha student is an open mind and heart and willingness commit yourself completely to study and attend all classes throughout the 24 days of your training.

I’m not super flexible, can I still join up?
Our philosophy is that there is no “one size fits all yoga”. Yoga should fit your body, not the other way around. So some people may never get into particular postures, but if they are working with attention and intention they are practicing yoga whether or not they can form every shape perfectly with their body.

I feel a bit nervous about doing this course. Should I still do it?
Yes! This probably means you are ready to step into something new but you just need that extra bit of courage to make the next brave step. You are welcome to write to us and let us know about this and we can happily provide extra support – both before and during your time with us on the course.

The Level 1 200 hour course allows you to register as a RYT with Yoga Alliance immediately upon graduation. This means you are now certified by the most widely recognised and reputable Yoga organisation in the industry, and able to teach in gyms and studios the world
