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.

Myofascial & Anatomy Educator, Practitioner development Coach. ANMPT.
We are very excited to be joined on our online 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.
We are delighted to welcome Giulia who joins us this year for our online 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training to lead advanced asana workshops for our Yoga Teacher Trainees
Giulia has been exposed to sport and movement since a very young age. Trading as Giuliacroyoga, Giulia has been practicing yoga and acroyoga since 2014, when she immediately fell in love with the playfulness of acroyoga and the mindfulness of yoga.
Her passion and dedication made her travel the world, exploring different yoga styles, completing three acroyoga teacher trainings and becoming a 500hrs RYT in late 2018. Yoga is for Giulia a true lifestyle, and a way of being that really goes beyond the asana practice; AcroYoga is for her a really powerful discipline that combines strength, body awareness, mutual trust and most importantly, respect for the others and the self.
Certified and trained in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Aerial, Hatha, Yin and AcroYoga, Giulia mostly teaches dynamic styles. Her classes offer a good balance between challenge and softness, with a particular attention on alignment and surely a good dose of sweat.
During her extensive travels in India, South-East Asia, Pacific, Central America and Europe, she had the opportunity to practice and meet yogis and acroyogis from all over the world, enriching her practice and teaching style. Her wish is to continue exploring and learning from different disciplines, schools and inspiring humans. All the while, growing as a yoga and acroyoga teacher and movement practitioner.

what our past students had to say...
Fantastic course which really opened my eyes up to the depth of yoga! I opted for the self paced route which worked really well alongside my other commitments. Miriam was always on hand to answer any questions via email and in the one to one sessions. She was really understanding of any difficulties that arose due to the pandemic so certainly don't let this put you off.
(Self Paced Course - Online Graduate June 2020, Birmingham, UK)
I have been practicing Yoga regularly for nearly two years – and enrolled on this course to improve my knowledge and skills relating to Yoga. The online format allowed me to complete this training at a time in which most things are not possible. Initially when I signed up I worried that I would miss out on some of the personal elements of a face to face course. However that was not the case – the daily schedule provided a clear plan for what each day would be like. It also forced me to make time in my week for this course. This meant that rather than a self-paced course I moved through in a structured way working collaboratively with others on the course. In addition there were frequent 1 to 1 sessions with Miriam who provided personalised feedback on both my teaching and technique. Over the four weeks of the course there have been huge improvements in my technique due to the feedback received. Thank you for all your help and support
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate - United Kingdom, May 2020)
A fantastic instructor, the resources were thoughtful and well prepared and gave both a clear overview and a good specific detail. The 1 to 1 feedback on both technique and teaching allowed me to make rapid progress. I would highly recommend BeWell!
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate - United Kingdom, May 2020)
Thank you so much. Thank you doesn’t seem enough.. thank you for being the person you are, kind, thoughtful encouraging, resilient, patient.. the list goes on but u get the picture. You are amazing at what you do and l was lucky to have found you on my quest to become a yoga teacher. Anyway l think you don’t sit well with too many compliments so l will stop there.. I’m sure our paths will cross again so until then take care.
(200 Hours YTT Graduate from Donegal, Jan 2020)
BeWell's online training course is enjoyable, engaging and full to the brim with information to satisfy the curiosity of budding yoga teachers. Miriam's in-depth knowledge and attention to detail really comes through in the live sessions and course materials. You will leave this course with an excellent foundation in every aspect of yoga, as well as a range of materials to refer to whenever you need them in the future. Miriam has done her utmost to replicate the in-person experience with daily live sessions, 1-to-1s and individualised feedback on teaching practice and alignment. This is a rare and valuable opportunity to train from the comfort of your own home, with an incredible teacher. Miriam is kind, patient and present for all of your questions - I couldn't have asked for a better tutor! If you are considering this course, I highly recommend it! Thank you to Miriam and to BeWell for an amazing yoga journey.
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate from Dublin, May 2020)
It was a great experience for me to be in your class, exploring new dimensions of yoga. You conducted this course with very organised way and extensive work within short time. Thank you, you too! Wish you all the best for your personal life and for your business.
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate from Dublin, May 2020)
Thank you so so much for everything you’ve done on this course! It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had, so eye opening and grounding. I’m going to miss it so much! I’ve actually got a friend who has already signed up for your next online course!!! I can’t wait to meet you in ’real’ life soon. Wishing you all the best!
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate from Bristol, May 2020)
Thank you so much for everything! I enjoyed the class as much as it was intense and challenging,
but I really learned a lot and feel like I have improved myself on many levels! Your personality also made it very easy and I appreciate your efforts!
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate - Germany, May 2020)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for an amazing YTT. I've loved it. So happy to have done it with BeWell. Your passion, your whole ethos and your honesty have made it really special and really practically useful.. to achieve that online is impressive! & thanks for all your kind + helpful feedback and encouragement, massively appreciated. Also actually thank you for encouraging me to do this in the first place - by giving me a really helpful practical answer to how 'good' I needed to be. No bullshit about whether I thought I was ready just a video to practice along with - super helpful! Without that I might not have done it & the last 4 weeks could have been a massive waste and a bit grim on furlough on lockdown. Instead it's honestly been one of the best things I've done, feel very lucky.
(Online 200 Hours YTT Graduate - London, May 2020)
A privilege to train with BeWell Yoga. The training encourages and supports your personal development, strengthens the body, while improving asana practise and posture.

She shares her years of experience and knowledge, ensuring that her students walk away with real knowledge, on how to teach yoga safely and professionally to students of all ages and all physical abilities, real yoga teacher training for the real world.

"I really loved my time on the YTT. The content of the course was enormously engaging, and I learnt a lot about everything from the history of yoga to meditation and pranayama. Most of all, I met a wonderful group of people that will continue to inform how I think about yoga, long after the course finishes."
