Jim Harrington is the leading ‘teacher of teachers’ in South Africa’s yoga community. Internationally trained, Jim was registered with the International Yoga Alliance as Experienced Yoga Teacher Trainer (ERYT) in 2005 and has trained over 150 teachers since then. Students are inspired by the depth of his technical knowledge of bio-mechanics, and by his experience of teaching and and yoga practice of more than 25 years.
Students benefit by learning from a “teaching team” of experienced and inspired teachers. Their combined skills make this a world-class teacher training experience. The 200hr course may be taken with no aspiration to be a teacher, but just as an experience to deepen ones connection to yoga. The 500hr course is for teachers who have already qualified with a 200hr Yoga Alliance certified course. Both experiences guaranteed to change the way that you view, teach and practice yoga. Visiting international students enjoy an unforgettable stay in Cape Town, one of the most spectacular cities in the world.
This Yoga Teacher Training Course builds a strong foundation to begin teaching the art of yoga safely and effectively. The 200 hr course is a pre-requisite to taking the more advanced level Modules that make up the 500 hour course.
