There are no formal prerequisites for our yoga teacher courses - your success will be determined by your passion for the practice and your commitment to the programme. Before attending the practical workshops, you will ideally have some experience of performing yoga techniques – if not you’ll have to ensure that you regularly attend classes or sessions during the home-study period. Throughout your course you will also need to undertake further practice as a student to further develop your knowledge and skills.
Our courses are designed to prepare you for a successful career as a yoga teacher. Broadly speaking, you'll learn about the history and philosophies of yoga; the principles behind practice; how to plan and programme a class or session; how to perform the postures (asanas); the best ways to teach/instruct yoga.
The specific course content will depend on the package that you select. For more information about the course content, please visit the individual course pages.
There's a wide range of places where a yoga teacher can find work. A small selection of these include: private health clubs and gyms, yoga retreats and holiday parks, cruise ships, private yoga studios, local authority leisure centres, and working on a one-on-one basis with clients in their own homes or workplace. Yoga teachers can be self-employed and work on a freelance basis, or be employed – the opportunities are literally endless.

Thank you H.F.E. it was a great course, and i enjoyed it. Felt completely supported, by the staff there. Amazingly friendly and caring. And lovely venue
Really impressed with the HFE course. Although it was hard work, with help from my online tutor I passed and I am now teaching regular classes. It was great that I could do online learning and grasp things in my own time without the computer.
I’ve completed 3 courses now with HFE, and honestly, the support and content are excellent. They provide content for all methods of learning, so everyone has the best chance to learn in the way that suits them. Courses are fun and challenging, but they equip you for working in the industry really well!
From the very beginning, the support I received was amazing and the tutor was very helpful in answering all my questions. We kept in touch by e-mail and telephone and I covered all the study areas at home in my own time while carrying on with my normal life and work duties.
