Creative Calm Yoga Studio presents 200+hour Yoga Teacher Training Manchester


Our yoga teacher training Manchester is in person at our independent holistic Creative Calm Yoga Studio, Prestwich, Manchester.

Yoga has stood the test of time, underpinning most of the well-being practices of today. If you’ve clicked onto this page, we are guessing you already know this first hand.

Yoga is a transformational practice & your yoga teacher training journey just takes this further.

Your Yoga teacher training will enhance your knowledge & understanding, adding to your skill set to serve your community, through Yoga.

Course Details

Our yoga teacher training in Manchester encompasses yoga practises that can be woven into your own personal practise. We offer a monthly road map that at the heart of it are the yogic teachings of Ahimsa (the art of kindness, compassion and non-harming) Satya (the art of honesty and truthfulness) and Svadhyaya (the art of self-study and personal growth) 

We weave in Somatics to enable the Yoga to be embodied. Not so much as ‘Yoga Journal Cover’ but ‘how does this feel for you’. 
The course covers Hatha Yoga, embodied anatomy, bio-mechanics, philosophy, business skills and so much more.


We look to find ways to bring the teachings and topics to life, so you can enjoy learning in a style that suits you. 
This training respectfully honours the rich history of yoga whilst adapting it for the modern life.

Karen will be your main teacher and for most of the course, she will have either Justine or an assistant with her so that you get to hear more than one person’s way of how to teach and hear their own experiences as both teachers and their own personal practises.

Karen will be bringing her knowledge of embodied anatomy, yoga, somatics & bio-mechanics. She will integrate other elements of yoga, including mantra, mudra and pranayama all neatly woven in with yoga philosophy. This will give you a rounded practise and enable you to teach with confidence & creativity.

Your investment is £2950. An initial £500 deposit will secure your place (non-refundable) the remainder of the course fee – £2450 is available to pay monthly by standing order (monthly payments of £255 for 10 months include an admin fee).

Karen has a wealth of knowledge and is a walking encyclopaedia regarding movement & somatics. With a warm heart and kind soul.” - Rachel Student

“I am learning and unlearning so much. Everything I thought I knew about yoga is changing, it’s not how it looks, or the precise alignment of your feet, but how it feels in YOUR body. These teachings are showing me what kind of teacher I want to be.” - Polly Student
