YOTL Teacher Training


At Yoga on the Lane we believe that yoga is about personal transformation on and off the mat. To this end our teacher training focuses on how to teach therapeutic flowing vinyasa with a special emphasis on mindful movement and intelligent sequencing, exactly the kind of yoga we believe helps creates clarity and focus in your self-relationship. We teach people how to hold a space, how to teach creatively but safely, intelligently and dynamically but also softly and compassionately. The Yoga on the Lane Teacher Training is a space where people grow as teachers, an enduring community of like-minded yogis with post-training support, workshops and mentorship.



All applicants must have at least three years of consistent yoga practice. And they must be available for all the course modules as attendance is compulsory and you will not be able to graduate unless you have completed all the elements of the course to the required level. There are a limited number of places on the course so if you’re new to the studio we will require you to come and take classes and attend an interview to assess whether you are ready to undertake our training


After the recent TT group graduating we now have our over-subscribed 2017 course underway. For more information on our next intake, September 2018 please email:



Teacher training with Yoga on the Lane has been an amazing ride. The guidance from our course leaders has been expert and totally supportive at every stage. The course content is brilliant, accessible and paced very well. From yoga philosophy to anatomy to sequencing, I felt like we were learning from the best.

My relationship to yoga is much deeper since I embarked on the training - I now can’t imagine life without a strong yoga practice in it. The YOTL training imparts the most special and profound messages about yoga from the past and interweaves it with the latest scientific knowledge in terms of anatomy, breathing, mindfulness and so on - a refreshing change from the Instagram yoga culture, where bikinis and hashtags seem very far from what yoga is really about.

I couldn’t speak more highly about the training. YOTL is the real deal!


I can warmly recommend the YOTL teacher training and want to thank Naomi and all amazing guest teachers for this wonderful experience! We started from our first weekend on teaching each other in small groups, and I can say that this was the best they could have done, as we all overcame our initial fear of teaching very quickly. Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge and beautiful way of living and teaching yoga with us!
