Yoga Teacher Training: Costs and Fees

Daizan teaching Zen Yoga for autumnTuition Costs and Offers

Standard price: £2130
Early bird price: £1830 (available if you book more than 3 months in advance)

Bursary place: We offer one bursary place per course that comes with a 50% reduction on the tuition fees. To qualify for a bursary place you’d need to be someone who, after their training, is prepared to offer your expertise to a group of people that wouldn’t under normal circumstances get access to this kind of teaching. For example it might be in hospitals, children’s homes, homeless shelters, care homes, etc. What we need from you is a written document explaining to whom and how you will offer the course. Once you have run your course/classes you would need to report back as to how it went and what was achieved.

Discount for previously qualified yoga teachers: If you have a 200hr yoga teacher training qualification already and are interested in coming on our course, we’d like to offer you a 50% reduction on the tuition fees.

Group bookings: We offer a 25% discount on tuition fees for group bookings of 4 or over.

Accommodation

Accommodation (bed and board) costs are in addition to the tuition fees.

We would encourage you to stay at the venue where the course is held. The venue accommodation costs vary, and start from around £50/night. Some venues offer shared accommodation, others have single rooms with en-suite which are more expensive. Others offer camping options. Please check the individual course listing for more details of the prices.

If you’d like to find your own accommodation or would like to stay at home, you’re always very welcome. Beware of adding significant commute times as the days start early and end late.

Great value for money

We are committed to keeping the course affordable and our yoga teacher training course is still one of the best value Yoga Alliance registered courses. When you consider your earnings potential, our training course is excellent value for money.

Sure, it’s a lot of money and it’s a big decision. Our head teacher, Daizan, remembers:

“I have a confession to make. I never set out to be a yoga teacher. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my yoga. I was pretty regular in my own practice and got to classes now and then. But then things turned a corner and…well, some amazing things have happened to me since I first qualified not long after the millennium.

“I’m reminded of the thoughts that nearly stopped me going for it:Tutor Daizan guides two students learning how to adjust a posture on the Zenways yoga teacher training

  • I’m not flexible enough
  • I love yoga but I don’t know if I could teach it
  • I’m not the right age to be a yoga teacher
  • I don’t have the time or money to study”

Maybe when you consider teaching yoga, similar feelings come up for you. We know where you’re coming from. Yoga is a vast and deep discipline, thousands of years old. We’re quite right to think very seriously before we undergo teaching it. But the thing is the world needs yoga teachers!

Never have humans lived in such a frazzled, stressful, unnatural environment. People are crying out for help. Every year, yoga gets more popular because it really makes a difference.

Maybe it seems quite expensive to go through the training. No question, even though the Zenways yoga teacher training is one of the best-value courses in the UK, it’s not cheap. That is, until you work out how long it would take to earn the money to pay back your training costs. If you teach two classes a day (London professionals may be doing anything up to five and we’re assuming an average of £50 per class) you’ll pay for your training in under a month. We don’t know of many other professions where you can cover your training costs that quickly and where you get to go to bed with such a sense of satisfaction.

I absolutely loved the course – it was wonderful – everything I was looking for and more. By the end I felt excited, equipped and ready to begin teaching. Be ready to embark on a personal journey of self discovery and opening as part of preparing to become a teacher. I recommend wholeheartedly the total immersion approach. I wouldn’t have developed so much if it had been split up.Jane Wrafter, JCW Fitness
