Our Mission

Our mission is to cultivate teachers to truly find their unique and authentic voice, supporting and inspiring you to follow your own passions within the vast subject that is yoga. We are committed to passing on our years of teaching experience and empowering yoga teachers to evolve and deepen their knowledge on their path as teachers.

A 200-hour Level 1 training is just the beginning of a teacher’s journey and our Level 2 programme is devised to ensure continued growth and evolution happens at a pace that is sustainable and attainable. The programme will continue to challenge, refuel and inspire you as a teacher, deepening your knowledge, increasing your confidence and nurturing and supporting you on your yogic path to be the best teacher you can be.

Benefits of Becoming a 500-RYT

After completing a 200 hr-teacher training, most teachers are still hungry for more knowledge and find themselves yearning to further their understanding of all the many layers that are so integral to the practice of yoga. By completing The Shala’s 300-hr course, you can delve deeper into the areas of the practice that you are personally interested in and gain skills and knowledge to help you create a meaningful and purposeful vocation. If your 200-hour is accredited by the Yoga Alliance (USA), the 300-hour training will allow you to gain a 500-hr certificate accredited by the Yoga Alliance (200 hr + 300 hr = 500 hr certificate). This will strengthen your credibility and expand your knowledge as a teacher. The bespoke nature of the course allows you to ignite the areas that you feel passionate about teaching to students, helping you to create a sustainable and rewarding life path as a yoga teacher.
