Hermione Halman

The 1-year yoga training takes place every Friday afternoon during term time, 12:00 -17:30 at Yogaloft studio, Beethoven St, Queens Park, West London. There is a total of 34 x 5.5 hour-led sessions, plus one weekend retreat and a final full day of assessment and graduation.

The course follows the school calendar over a full year, making it the best option for those that want to give time to their physical practice developing. The structure aims to support the schedule of parents, those that work weekends, or those with flexible working structures/self employed. This format of yoga training offers the most time for development in the students’ own practice: both the practice of yoga and in integrating and working with the course content.

Yogaloft is a studio that offers a precise and methodical, alignment-based approach to hatha and vinyasa yoga in tranquil, beautiful and fully-equipped studios. Students will be encouraged to benefit as much as possible from the teaching community at Yogaloft. Studying in London over a year provides a strong and empowering learning community and the connection to a supportive home studio, which remains long after the training is complete.
