We’ve designed our training program around you, ensuring you can still ‘do life’ (taking care of the kids, work, social) while you learn. And in our experience, we’ve found the BEST teachers are those who have taken their time to absorb the learning. And so our programme is spread over 15 months, giving you space to practice, to enjoy and to integrate between each phase.

Payment Options – In Full or Pay-As-You-Go
We have payment structures to fit everyone’s budget. You can either pay the non-refundable deposit and balance in one full payment and receive a lovely discount of £200, or pay by installments to make the course more affordable.
A non-refundable deposit of £695 is required at the time of booking:
- If paying balance in full – your £200 discount is applied, and balance of £2500 will be due once your application has been successful
- If paying balance in installments – your 5 monthly payments of £500 will be due 1 month after paying the deposit. In this instance, you are obliged to enter a contractual agreement for all payments.
Please Note: Your space is not secured until the deposit has been paid.
Included in the costs:
All course tuition, pre and post-course study materials, student support, assessments, certification, tea and coffee throughout the day. Concession rates for classes at Whitespace during your training.
Additional costs to consider:
- Yoga Alliance Membership, includes insurance to teach (£25 Trainee Yoga Teacher)
- First Aid course (approx £90), only required if you do not already have an Appointed Person First Aid certificate.
- Course text books
- Accommodation (where needed)
- Remarked work & retaking assessments
- Make-up training days
- Class attendance during your training
- Special arrangements for Final Class Assessment
Ideally, the First Aid course and class attendance would be done at Whitespace, and we offer our TYTs a discount to encourage this. However, we realise that for some this may not be possible. In such cases, these hours may be taken with teachers in the UK or abroad, provided the teachers are experienced.
To make the learning experience as comprehensive as possible, there are assignments to help embed and integrate the learning. Outside of the training days, you will also be required to undertake a regular home practice, attend regular classes and complete written assignments. Over the duration of the course, the time spent on written assignments averages out at 2 hours a week.

Leaving the Training
It is our aim and policy to facilitate teacher trainees who may be experiencing difficulties either with the training or in other areas of their life so they are able to complete the teacher training programme. However, we understand that in some circumstances this is not possible and students have no choice other than to leave the programme. In this instance we will be unable to give you a certificate or graduate you from the training, and your course fees are still due and cannot be refunded.
