A fully accredited 220 hour Vocational Yoga Teacher Training.
Accreditation is with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
Applications are now open for the training beginning in September 2020
If you love yoga, want to go deep into an in depth study, advance your own practice and learn how to teach yoga to others for a career in the wonderful world of yoga then this course this for you.
You don’t need to be really good at Yoga, you just need a few years of experience and a willingness to learn, explore and expand yourself.
This course is not just a breakdown of all the asanas and how to teach them, its much much more. From my own journey as a teacher I know that learning about the postures is actually the easy bit and you can learn your Asanas anywhere. Learning how to be yourself in front of people and take them on a physical, mental and emotional journey through yoga is a skill that I believe I can help you to learn. To develop the courage to make what you love into your job. To develop a deep and confident sense of yourself, your relationships and your life.
Held at Flow Yoga Centre in Clonakilty during weekends, one weekend a month. Dates are listed in the course syllabus and are mostly on the second weekend of each month.

“For me the most important aspects to teaching yoga are to create an atmosphere of ease and awareness. To encourage curiosity and to offer a safe and supportive space that provides students the opportunity to let go.
So my teacher training will at its heart be focused on helping my trainees develop the skills necessary to hold this type of space.
This requires a personal journey, because holding a safe, supportive and compassionate space for others means learning to do this for yourself. This journey and the skills learnt will benefit anyone on just a personal level, even if they decide to never teach a class. But if you do go on to teach, this training will give you what you need holistically to hold a class, mentally, physically and emotionally”. Jess Hatchett
“This yoga teacher training course is like going in through the magic door. Since its inception in January, Jess’s knowledge, insight, guidance and encouragement has brought me on a journey of discovery – discovering and creating a deeper connection with yoga and what it means to me, meeting myself and understanding myself. Each month has brought me further along the path of self-discovery and developing my skills as a yoga teacher. It has opened my view and understanding of different yoga styles and broadened my knowledge of yoga philosophy and therapy. Ultimately I am learning what it is to hold a safe space for my students and to be an authentic teacher. Thank you Jess!”

I had been telling myself for 4 years that I would do a teacher training one day, abroad, when I had more money, when I had more time, more flexibility, more of a yoga mind. Then Jess started her training in Clonakilty, right here on my doorstep, my head said “you’re not ready.” “You won’t be able.” “You’re not committed enough.” “You’re not yogi enough”, But with reassurance from Jess, I applied & got accepted.
Eight modules in & I have no regrets. Whether you have any plan to teach yoga in the future or you’re just doing it to deepen your practice, your knowledge & go on your yoga journey, I would highly recommend shoving that inner critic aside & going for it!
It will take you on the most magical journey of my only self discovery, beautiful practices, discussions & workshops but it will guide you on a journey of self belief. Everyone in the room is on their own journey & the support from that makes it so much more accessible for you to be on yours.
Jess’ experiential & evidence-based knowledge, passion for yoga & desire to pass it all on is evident in every hour of the training.
A beautiful safe space is created in the room on the Friday & this remains ‘til we all depart on Sunday evening full of new knowledge, new ideas, new strengths & discoveries.
The learning environment created by Jess is one of ease, reassurance & accessibility for all.
Don’t think too long about it, just go for it! X x X
