The Yoga Movement Academy was launched in 2016, with the intent of building a Teacher Training program that truly focused on Teaching Teachers How To Teach. 

We designed the program to ring true with the accessibility, quality service, and good people YM stands for… all touched with our special YM Brand Brush (…did we mention we included great food and coffee to boot?)!

We have more recently buddied up with the International Standard for Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Alliance, to ensure our graduates can apply the Academy’s learnings wherever their teaching journey takes them!



What is YMTT200 all about?
The 200HR Yoga Movement Teacher Training, or YMTT200 as we call it, is a 9-week, semi-intensive program that trains students to be great Yoga teachers. Graduates of YMTT200 will step out of the program ready to teach classes by Yoga Movement standards.

YMTT200 covers all traditional Teacher Training topics, and has additional modules and activities that help students develop the soft skills and practical experience needed to teach safe, multi-level Yoga classes, across several class styles.

On weekends, students study curated course materials, take lectures, and jump into exercises to understand the full scope of being a great teacher. Students will also attend a minimum of 2 Yoga Movement classes over the weekdays to supplement weekend learnings, at their convenience.

This program is hard work, but the radder parts of YM Life are alive and well all along the way. Unlimited Yoga classes, exclusive YM course materials, brunches, coffees, and pro Yoga shots are all part of the process!

Is YMTT200 Yoga Alliance accredited?  
Yes, YMTT200 is an internationally recognised Yoga Teacher Training certification, accredited by Yoga Alliance. The hours clocked in during YMTT200 can contribute to your greater Yoga Alliance accrual of experiences and are recognised around the world.

Who will be teaching me? 

YMTT200 is led by YM teachers, who have been carefully selected based on their experience and expertise in respect to our course topics. Much like any other profession, our teachers like to specialize in different areas and the variety in offering keeps things interesting and engaging.  

How will I be graded? 
We guarantee YMTT200 graduates will deliver the same quality service and teaching standards as a YM teacher, meaning students have to work hard for that shiny cert at the end of the program… and it is possible to fail. We have every confidence, though, that hard workers have the ability to graduate YMTT200-certified!

Final marks for YMTT200 break down to: Participation: 10%; Theory Exam: 30%; Practical Exam: 60%.
