Modular Training

A unique journey of personal development

The Yoga Teacher Training & Yoga Therapy Course

There are three key modules on this four year course and each one is an important step which leads to the next.  You may be a teacher or a beginner but the first module is designed to help all levels of students and give the fundamental knowledge of classical yoga in order to progress.

In module 2, we learn to teach and practice one-to-one, the art of mudra and banda, the holistic science of ayurveda, meditation, mantra and vedic chanting. 

In module 3, the true art of yoga therapy, including practical yoga therapy skills, models of health and disease, human psychology, yoga for specific conditions and good practice management.

‘I woke up today with a huge smile on my face! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the catalyst to my amazing journey with yoga, the WD40 on my personal journey into profound growth in the last 4 years. You gave me a chance to come on the course and it’s been one of the most profound and deep learnings of my life. I started the course all over the place and have come to find a strength and a peace in myself that has surprised me. All those doubts that I had and wobbles all seem to be calmer and much more manageable for now and I'm about to publish my life's work. I still can't believe that one! You brought a room of very different people together and we all went through the ups and the downs together and came out with our wings to fly.’ JT

‘I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the last 4 years.  It feels a real privilege to have been taught by you.  You have given your teaching with open hands in such a skilled way, and you manage to enable your students to be able to discover things for themselves, with no harsh judgement.  It is a true gift! You are a real inspiration and great guiding light. Thank you.’ CL

‘The last four years have been an amazing journey. I have learnt more than I could ever have imagined through Colin's expertise, guidance and support. I now feel confident teaching Yoga and working as a Therapist. I’ve also progressed personally way beyond any expectation in my life and my relationships now reflect this. I can't recommend this course enough and look forward to continuing my studies with Colin and True Yoga.’ KL
