200Hr Yoga Teacher Training with Ziba Bayley & The Zen Shed

14th September - 1st March 2020


Expand your knowledge of yoga and discover your purpose within it.


The Tripti Yoga® 200 - Hour Teacher Training is a two week intensive, followed by 6 months of supported home practice with groups call and videos as well as two workshop weekends. 

You will learn a foundational, comprehensive study into the 8 limbs of yoga, including classical asana, anatomy and sanskrit. Alongside philosophy and history you will experience the wider practices of pranayama, sense-withdrawal and concentration techniques beginning each day with group meditation.

This training is for any practitioner of yoga as it holds meditation at the heart.

You will experience the friendship and kinship of training with others. In groups you learn and discover the wider practices of mantra, sound yoga, chanting, yoga nidra and group satsang with guest teachers sharing their practices and their individual yoga journeys. 

You will uncover your innate creativity and centredness through the resetting of daily habits to those aligned with yoga for a strong mind. You will understand the purpose of the yoga as “yoga, citta, vrtti nirodhah” - the cessation of the mind stuff, to achieve union through self enquiry, self study in the world and experience-based learning.  

We advocate the inclusion of all styles of learning and devotion to yoga, whether Karma, service, Bhakti, devotion,  Jnana, study or Raja, meditation.  We encourage your interest in teaching or studying yoga with your first step being to take this foundational course.

You will receive the key elements expounded in Patanjali’s yoga Sastras or Sutras and will feel confident as new teachers and life-long practitioners of yoga.
