  1. The Application Process

Get in touch with us on to discuss your suitability and eligibility for our Yoga Teacher Training program.Once confirmed we will guide you through the rest of the process.

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.

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.
