Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle Yoga School is dedicated to creating high-quality Yoga Teacher Training Courses embodying the eight limbs of yoga, as set out by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. 

Our Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Newcastle upon Tyne include: 

It’s our belief that a good yoga teacher must have three things:


Yoga is a lifestyle, not just what happens on the mat.
A teacher should strive to live their life according to the yogic principles.

There’s no such thing as a perfect teacher, but dedication and passion for the practice of yoga are crucial if you want to succeed.

You can’t teach what you don’t do.


There’s no way to know everything, but a teacher should have a good grounding in yoga philosophy and foundational knowledge of anatomy.

It’s important to understand what happens within the body during asana.


You can have all the passion and knowledge in the world, but if you can’t communicate in a clear and effective way then you won’t be able to teach or inspire other people.

Our principles

Our courses have these principles at their core:

  • We will help you develop a home practice so that you can become a lifelong student of yoga and keep your passion alive.
  • We will study the Yoga Sutras and develop an understanding of the basics of yoga philosophy.
  • Using specialist technology, we will explore anatomy in a fun and accessible way.
  • We will work on the art of teaching itself – communication is a skill that can be practiced and refined.
  • We will work together so when you graduate you can feel confident to teach a class that keeps your students engaged and interested without being overwhelmed.

Newcastle Yoga School is Founded by Jo Hutton, Director of Happy Yoga Newcastle.


From the beginning we were encouraged to take steps to build our confidence as teachers, and to explore the other eight limbs of yoga and how these apply to our lives, our practice, and our future teaching. I’m so pleased I signed up.


Wow. Investing in this course was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve loved every second of this training & would do it all over again in a heart beat if I could. The quality of this course is second to none, the teaching, the content, all of it was amazing!
