Our values and vision
We build a strong community of teachers that support each other in life and teaching.
What we look for in our teachers before they go out into the world is the ability to guide with a depth of presence that reflects a level of understanding into themselves.
The capacity to engage with the student fully, being able to see them as a whole person, not just a body doing movements.
Teachers walk away with the ability to offer classes that work, based on brilliant class plans that stand out from the crowd. There is something different about how they teach and this happens through a clear grasp of Global Yoga's methodology.
It's not just because they are skilled in alignment, but they are attuned to orchestrating change within the body mind.
Global Yoga is led by Johanna Hector and her luminous colleagues, who together bring years of experience and expertise in each field, offering the highest quality and range of education, spanning trainings, training retreats and workshops.

Frequently asked questions
I DON'T WANT TO TRAIN TO BE A YOGA TEACHER, CAN I DO ANY OF THE TRAININGS?
Yes you can. All our trainings are open to those who wish to deepen their studies in yoga but aren't wishing to teach.
IF I DID THE 100H TRAINING AND THEN DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO TO TEACH COULD I?
Yes if you did complete the assignments in the training. That is why we do recommend everyone to complete the assignments and homework weather the are thinking of teaching or not. You can not do these assignments and get a certificate after the trainings is completed.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE THE 200H TRAINING?
In order to qualify as a 200hr accredited yoga teacher all three trainings (100h + 50h + 50h) must be completed within 24 months of your start date.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I'M READY TO DO ANY PART OF THE 200H TRAINING?
It is important to have a regular weekly practice of yoga in order to deepen your knowledge and gain maximum benefit from these trainings. We recommend that you have been practicing yoga on a regular basis for at least a year and feel comfortable doing sun salutations, asana and to speak in front of a group.
DO I AUTOMATICALLY GET THE 200H CERTIFICATE WHEN I HAVE ATTENDED THE TRAININGS?
When you have passed your training and workshops. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org stating the year of your 100h foundation training, your two 50h workshops (year and title) and your full name. We will register you in our Global Yoga network and send you your 200h certificate and 200h seal for you to print and use as you wish.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN'T ATTEND ONE DAY OF THE TRAINING?
In the event that full attendance is not possible, Global Yoga offers the student the chance to take up for missed sessions. These must be made up for certification of the training to be possible. These would be done through private catch up sessions with Global Yoga teacher. Private sessions must be completed within the course timeline. Private sessions will be charged at the rate offered by the relevant Global Yoga teacher.
If a teacher trainee misses more than 2 days of the 100hr training or 1 day of the 50h training then certification will not be possible.
ONCE I AM A CERTIFIED TEACHER WILL I BE ABLE TO REGISTER AS A YOGA TEACHER WITH YOGA ALLIANCE?
On certification of the full 300hr Program you will be able to register with Yoga Alliance UK & USA as a 300hr Yoga Teacher as well as having 500hrs towards your 500hr certification.
WHAT SUPPORT DO I GET FROM THE TEACHER DURING THE TRAINING?
If you are doing a Global Yoga training you always have a mentor who supports you during your training. You also have the power of the Global Yoga community where students and teachers support each other and help each other in a beautiful, supportive way.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO DEDICATE TO THE TRAINING OUTSIDE OF THE CONTACT HOURS?
If you are training to be a teacher then a large amount of time is needed outside of the course hours to complete the homework that is set. Please note that there is time between each modules to complete these and your teacher will be at hand to help, should it be needed.
A dedicated daily practice is expected for teacher trainees to improve and absorb the coursework, in order to fully benefit and grasp the information taught, in preparation to hold the seat of a yoga teacher.
IF I COMPLETE THE 200H TRAINING WITH GLOBAL YOGA, WILL THERE BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND TO THE 500H CERTIFICATION?
Yes if you have completed your 200h certificate then you are qualified to apply for the Global Yoga 500h certification. You can complete your 500h certification by attending a further 4 workshops and assisting one foundation training.
CAN A RETREAT COUNT TOWARDS MY TRAINING HOURS?
It will be stated inside of the retreat information if it is eligible to be counted towards the Global Yoga training hours.
