I am a professional yoga instructor. Do you have a course for me?

As a matter of fact, we do have courses for experienced yoga instructors.

Should you need to get certified or wish to learn more about the art and science of yoga, you may undergo a 200 hours teacher's certification course. This is a 5-weeks course that contains 17 subjects taught by 9 different teachers all professionals in their own fields of study. Most of our yoga teachers hold Master's degree in Yoga or Philosophy respective to what they teach or preach.

If 200 hours is not enough for you, you might want to take a look at our 500 hours yoga course.

Reviews by graduates

I was here in March 2016 and I'm so happy about my choice.

I was actually at another school before I met Stevie from Himalayan YA. He took time to answer all my questions and explained to me in depth about what HYA had to offer. I was looking for traditional yoga with Western teachings. Himalayan gave me just that, the best of both worlds which was really important to me as I was returning to the West to teach.

I had enjoyed yoga for many years but I had the knowledge lacking from my practice. I now can say that my eyes are more open to yoga than I ever imagined plus there are many bonuses to this course.

Many courses don't give much teaching time but HYA gives an extra 40 hours to concentrate on just that. Classes such as vocal training to lean how to fill the room with a calm but assertive voice which is forgotten about on other courses. I felt confident to lead a class because of this practice. I have met many other students who had completed their YTT who didn't have the confidence to teach months after graduating. I am truly grateful for this. Be warned this course is intensive but you have a good support system around you plus fun trips to help you relax and enjoy it for what it is :)

Loved the team and grateful for all that I have taken away with me :)
