Seasonal Yoga Teacher Training

Marit is one of 3 founding directors of the international seasonal yoga teacher training school. We have been running seasonal yoga 200 hour teacher training courses since 2010 in over 10 locations across the UK and Europe. We have taken the best of the 3 very experienced directors and combined them into a comprehensive yoga course which supports the evolution of all students, in terms of personal development as well as yogis and yoga teachers.

Seasonal Yoga Edinburgh: Marit leads the Edinburgh based trainings with the support of the local seasonal team, Jen Figures and Lianne Stewart. We run out of the beautiful studio Gathering Essence.

200 hour: This level of training takes place over a year, 1 weekend per month plus learning inbetween the modules. This is a wonderful year of training, in which you are introduced to how to live in line with the seasons, teach and practice seasonal flow (vinyasa flow style), in depth breath courses, anatomy and Yoga philosophy. The course is designed to support your growth as a practitioner, as well as a teacher. A very supportive environment to build conifdence in your teaching, and an inclusive community to help you be yourself.

All dates and times below, please contact us (link above) for a copy of the prospectus. (January 2024 is FULL, so we are now accepting applications for 2025).
