yoga teacher training
a Yoga Teacher Training course with MORE FLEXIBILITY FOR BUSY SCHEDULES
We are back and excited to be delivering our 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training Program.
We are so excited to launch our new 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training Courses - perfect for full time workers, busy parents, busy students...everyone really!
Why study with BeWell?
During lockdown we switched to 100% online training. We learned so much having been one of the first schools internationally to offer our course 100% online. After delivering our online course 8+ x times over in an online format we know exactly what elements work best online and what elements work best in an in-person or live online setting.
Save Time - Save Energy - Save Money
Our New 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training course is one of the most efficient out there.
We have taken all of the elements which are more practical to deliver online and we deliver them online.
Then, we have taken all of the elements which prove more impactful to deliver in an in-person setting and we deliver them in person during our - 10xDay YTT Bootcamp
You can attend the 10xDay YTT Bootcamp in person or online - you choose!
Theory Materials - Reading and Writing Exercises etc
In this day and age we all know that so much learning can be delivered more efficiently online. We are all about efficiency here at BeWell. All of our theory materials are covered online. Read them. Listen to them as you take a walk on our Podcasts. Meet up with someone in your group (online or in person) and chat about them. It's your call!
Physical Practise (Asana)
A certain amount of physical practise is safe to practise @ Home. Plus, you'll have lifetime access to these Asana classes. Use the online element to prepare the foundations and get your body ready for the 10xDay YTT Bootcamp. We cover all necessary basic Asana in our Online element. Some elements are a little safer and more impactful to experience in person. Because of that, we switch to more challenging physical practise teachings, learnings and challenges in our 10xDay YTT Bootcamp
While certain theoretical elements can be explored in an online format. And while some very effective teaching practise can be completed in a self paced style, the reality is nothing beats in person teaching practise. A large proportion of our 10xDay YTT Bootcamp pushes you out of your comfort zone and gets you onto that teaching mat to build confidence and strength as a new yoga teacher
One to One Feedback on Alignment
In the past, during in-person Yoga Teacher Trainings we could only adjust and assist with what we could see in front of us during a class. This meant, in a class of 12 Yoga Teacher Trainees it may not have been possible for the trainer to see each student's alignment for each posture.
Due to the major success of our 1 to 1 feedback on alignment element of our online course, we will be continuing to implement this aspect in our 2022 courses. Each teacher trainee will receive individual feedback on their unique alignment in all poses explored during the course. After all, we all know each body performs each asana in it's own unique way. We don't give blanket feedback to the group. We give you individual feedback on where you are and how to get to where you want to be...
In the past, during in-person Yoga Teacher Trainings we could only feedback on with what we could see in front of us during a teaching practise session. This meant, in a class of 12 Yoga Teacher Trainees working in multiple groups, it may not have been possible for the trainer to see each student's teaching practise performance.
Due to the major success of our 1 to 1 feedback on teaching practise element of our online course, we will be continuing to implement this aspect in our 2022 courses. Each teacher trainee will receive individual feedback on their teaching practise. This was voted one of the strongest elements of our course where teachers really saw major leaps in their development.
We welcome you with whatever skills you bring to the table. We don't give blanket feedback. We give you feedback on where you are and how to get to where you want to be...
So...how does it all work?
Traditionally Yoga Teacher Training was delivered 100% in person in a few typical formats
Some schools delivered 12 x weekends over the course of a year (1 weekend per month) This allowed the Yoga Teacher Trainee to integrate Yoga Teaching into their regular life slowly and efficiently...
Other schools delivered 3.5week intensive 'destination' courses where the Yoga Teacher Trainees were immersed in the teachings and learnings. This allowed for a deep dive in the Yogic Lifestyle in an ideal environment.
BeWell did both... monthly weekends...intensive destination courses etc.
Then the pandemic hit. We were all locked down. And Yoga Alliance gave us permission to deliver our in person hours online instead. We all thought it was a temporary provision. However, following the success of online trainings Yoga Alliance deicded to allow schools to continue delivering required hours in online format.
Nowadays it's completely up to the school how to organise their course.
All offline. All online...or a mix of both!
We see some schools following lockdown back delivering their courses in the same traditional sense. 12x weekends a year...or 3.5 weeks on location etc. Other schools have moved 360 and deliver online online...
It is our belief the the most efficient, effective, sustainable and innovative way to approach the course moving forward in today's climate and society is a Mixed Blended Course.
That's why we are the first school to introduce the the 'Bootcamp' mechanic
150 hours online + 50 hours Intense Teacher Training Bootcamp (delivered over 10 days)
Remember, you saw it here first!
150 Hours Online Study

🌸 Get Started Today
From the moment you book onto the course, you can enjoy access to materials...
🌸 Online since March 2020
We were one of the first schools internationally to go online in March 2020 with our 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training Program. This is because our lead trainer worked previously within online digital education solutions for training within global corporations. As a result, we knew how to get online fast and deliver an impactful course from the get go.
Since then, we have continuously integrated improvements into our course after every round of live session delivery. Following 9 rounds of delivering our online course and integrating improvements, it's safe the online aspects of our course is one of the most mature and evolved online Yoga Teacher Training out there.
🎧 Walk & Listen
We understand digital fatigue is a real issue. We also understand the importance of spending time in nature and getting fresh air. That's why we are the first online Yoga Teacher Training School to give you the option of reading your texts or instead listening to Podcasts for a large segments of your theory-work. Why not get your steps and some fresh air in as you progress through the course? Remember, you saw it here first 🌱
🌸 Ongoing Access
Enjoy ongoing access to the training portal even when the course has finished. So, when you finish the course you can go back and really relish in the sessions anytime!
🌸 One to One Unique & Individual Video Review (Alignment)
You can be guaranteed you will leave the course with a clear overview of your unique alignment in postures. We video review each of your postures and sit with you one to one to discuss safety or alignment topics specific to your body and your practise as a student of Yoga. This service proved so popular with our online yoga teacher trainees that we are now offering it also to our in person teacher trainees also!
🌸 One to One Unique & Individual Video Review (Teaching Practise)
We have a sliding scale of what we look at in terms of your teaching practise development. Some people will need support with confidence. Others will need support with how they energetically deliver their teaching.
Either way we review your unique style of teaching and sit with you one to one to discuss where you are and what unique and individual goalposts you can work towards to reach your potential.
This service proved so popular with our online yoga teacher trainees that we are now offering it also to our in person teacher trainees also!
🌸 One to One Unique Discussion & Review (Meditation)
Whether you are new to meditation or a seasoned practitioner, we periodically discuss with you one to one what is happening for you in your meditation and ensure you have the unique tools you need for your experience. We do not apply 'blanket instructions' regarding meditation to the group.
Instead, we give you unique goalposts as per where you are. As a result, all of our Yoga Teacher Trainees experience a deepening in their meditation experience.
🌸 Graduate Community
Your journey as a Yoga Teacher does not end after your course. Upon graduation enjoy access to the BeWell Yoga Inner Circle (Graduate Group) where we enjoy ongoing periodic training workshops, camaraderie and explore monthly online ceremony together.
Now, more than ever, we need skilled wellness facilitators, passionate community carers and inspirational local leaders to blaze the trail toward collective mental and physical balance, awareness and truth.
Are you feeling called ?
As a time of heightened collective consciousness draws in, we're creating a community and learning space for teachers who believe in consciousness, community and circularity.
Our mission is to share simple tools, accessible for everyone, rooted in ancient yogic history to bring everyone back to their unique magic & balance.
Is that a mission you want to be part of? If so, we're ready to meet you where you're at. New to yoga or old hand. Ready to become a teacher or still on the fence. We welcome you to be a part of our community.
The BeWell Yoga Teacher Training programme was a wonderful experience and one which I would recommend to any other students thinking of completing their 200hrs qualification. Miriam, the lead trainer, was fantastic both in her knowledge of yoga and the delivery of the course. I came away not only with a much deeper knowledge of all aspects of yoga but also a new approach, one that is gentler and kinder as to how we approach the teaching of yoga. It was very inclusive to all levels and that is something I strive to emulate in my teaching.

READY FOR A NEW KIND OF CHALLENGE?
time to look inward
In an ever changing world, where we can no longer freely explore outwardly, we have the unique opportunity to discover a whole other world within.
Our inner world, an undiscovered terrain, can be explored and adventured by means of simple methods from the comfort and safety of our home.
Meditation, Yoga and Pranayama (breathing exercises) act as keys that unlock the layers and allow us to adventure into the hidden depths of our mind, body and soul.
Funnily enough, it is the deep exploration, understanding, shedding and rebuilding of our inner world that allows us to truly relish in the most simple details of the outside world.
Come with us on a journey, a journey deep into your mind, body and soul. Together we will explore your unique inner world through meditation, pranayama, yoga and theory sessions, group discussions and workshops. You will emerge from this journey with the knowledge, skills and passion to take your Yoga Journey to the next level.
All from the comfort and safety of your home..should you so wish.

Miriam believes that by learning about Yoga we can create enormous positive change and impact in today’s society. By learning how to center ourselves and operate from a place of balance and consciousness we can ‘wake up’. Wake up to the simple and outstanding beauty of nature and life. Wake up to clearly and undoubtedly recognise mindlessness, selfishness, greed and consumerism within ourselves and others. Wake up to realise that to create change and inspire change, we must begin within ourselves. Something which can be achieved with ancient accessible tools taught by Yoga.
Myofascial & Anatomy Educator, Practitioner development Coach. ANMPT.
We are very excited to be joined on our YTT by Joseph Devlin, a neuromuscular therapist, with 10+ years
experience in private practice. Joseph is an experienced online educator and a skilled practitioner who offers great insight into the anatomy section of our course.
During a sabbatical in India, Joseph's interest in yoga - especially Yin - grew. Now he facilitates myofascial release workshops and trains yoga teachers in anatomy. Joseph has an interest in traditional medicine, men’s work and the power of group circles. Topics will range from the fight /flight nervous systems reaction to pain, gate theory and pathophysiology to the advice he has had from the yoga teachers and healers he has worked with.
Joseph calls upon his years of experience to assess posture and movement, educate his clients on specifically what would be of great benefit for them to focus on outside of their sessions. And then working with pressure points, that are holding their over worked muscles into negative patterns of movement.
He utilizes simple tools such as foam rollers and tennis balls to empower his workshop attendees to be able to do their own soft tissue release techniques and achieve a positive change in their movement.
