Teacher Training

Empowerment with TT Ho and Shivakumar

This part-time training is Hatha-based and catered to aspiring teachers and experienced yoga practitioners who wish to advance their practices. The programme is divided into two parts, the first spanning five weeks and the second over four weeks.

During the foundational training of Part I, you will discover the bigger picture of yoga and how the practice fits into the history and philosophy of yoga in general. The fundamental skills learned will give you the foundation from which to teach a Hatha yoga class or deepen your personal practice.

In Part II, you will embody the technical knowledge and deepen your practice to create a lasting difference for you and others that you inspire. The sessions help you to unearth what holds you back in your practice, elevate your practical knowledge and skills, advance and transform.  

You will leave the training empowered as a practitioner and teacher with stronger self-expression and skills.

Completion of this course guarantees a certificate. However, you will receive your certification when the teacher determines that you are ready to teach publicly – whether it be exactly at the end of the course or some time thereafter.    


Yoga Alliance Accredited School
Pure Yoga is a registered school with Yoga Alliance. Our teacher training programmes and teachers are internationally accredited, have exclusive recognition and qualify for the 200-hr & 300-hr Yoga Alliance Certification.

Yoga Alliance is an international governing board for yoga teachers and training programmes in the U.S. and globally. Graduates of our programme are automatically eligible to register as a RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance. Becoming a RYT means having a higher profile and gaining international recognition as a yoga teacher, attributes that many hiring studios look for.

Mission Statement
We offer this training in an effort to grow our community of committed yoga practitioners, empowering those who demonstrate dedication to a personal practice, by sharing the knowledge, skills and tools we have learned so they too can start teaching yoga.

We intend to guide trainees towards a healthy self-confidence, while at the same time invoking in them a sense of humility and excitement, knowing that they are at the beginning of a long journey.
