In this course you will develop the art of creative and meaningful sequencing to create purposeful and powerful practices for students and for yourself. As a teacher, it is important to not only understand how to sequence a class but the WHY behind it. Students will have a significantly more powerful experience on the mat when they are properly warmed physically, but also have the ability to experience a deeper purpose for their practice from a spiritual and philosophical perspective, when offered in an appropriate way that will give them something to take away and apply to their life off the mat.

Testimonials

I was lucky enough to attend this incredible 300 hour advanced yoga training, led by Om. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my ever continuing path of yoga study.
I had completed my 200 hour TT, 4 years previous. In that time I had gathered the essential tools to provide a solid and safe foundation for my students to build upon, yet began to feel a little stuck there. I wanted to journey with my students and be of real support and guidance in their growth. I wanted to feel fully confident to safely encourage them to move through hurdles and barriers they faced along the way. I wanted to really see my students and have the skills to offer what they really needed – physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. This training fulfilled all these wishes and MORE.
My own self-development and study over the course of this year was also truly life changing.
Sandey, Kylie, Fiona and Sally are exceptional teachers. Their passion and pure devotion to their practice speaks volumes and is not only inspiring, but contagious. They all have a unique and very skilled ability to share their knowledge in a way that is understandable on many levels.
My experience with these people, made me realise that when someone truly and utterly believes in you – they help pave the way toward transformation. Not only did my fellow students and I leave each module with hearts and toolkits full, we gained much wider perspectives on our practice and dived deeper into our Dharma. What surprised me the most, was the smooth transition of being able to put all this new learning into use, almost immediately. We emerged each time, feeling comfortable and confident to share from this new seat of experience and knowledge.This was all helped by the continual offer of support, mentorship, advice and further guidance between modules and even after graduation – which is invaluable.
 I want to also add,the timing of this training happened alongside some huge personal challenges. Yet I truly believe these modules kept me grounded, awake and prepared.
Ultimately this TT was a profound invitation to discover who i really was. The opening of my eyes to limitless possibIlity. A mirror to everything that already existed and a huge dose of courage to step into the teacher I aspire to be.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing your extensive knowledge and love with us all, so we can  essentially pass these gifts on to those around us.
Jem x

I enrolled in the 300-hour Teacher Training programme at OM Yoga Studio because I was ready to deepen my knowledge as a yoga teacher. The programme offered four unique modules, each of which covered topics that I wanted to explore further in my teaching and were led by experienced facilitators who I wanted to learn under.
The training was incredible – it completely reinvigorated my passion for yoga! On top of providing me with an in-depth understanding of sequencing principles, meditation, biomechanics and philosophy, it encouraged me to contemplate the “why” behind my own teaching practices and principles. It was so indulgent to spend five days every three months soaking in new information. I left each module with an excitement to integrate this knowledge into practice and apply what I learnt into a real-life setting.
This programme was comprehensive, well-organised, thoughtful and inclusive. I cannot recommend it enough!
