The Breeze YTT is a 200hr Yoga Alliance accredited vinyasa course taught by senior yoga teacher Hassan Hassan. The course is will be mainly practical learning with Hassan complimented by other tutors teaching anatomy and philosophy.
How long is the course?
The course runs over 3 months and is spilt into 6 weeks/weekends you need to be available for all session to complete all 200 hours of training. Please see dates above.
Will I be able to come to Breeze classes throughout the YTT?
Yes. Everyone who enrols on the Breeze 200 hrYTT will receive a TT pass to classes to use at the studio during the length of the course. This is something that is very specific to our YTT and invaluable to making sure that you fit in as much practice as possible throughout the course.
We have an exclusive mentor programme
You will have the opportunity to teach our community classes right after you graduate to put into practice everything you have learned.
We believe at Breeze that your TT is just the start of your teaching career and you should continue to grow and learn throughout your time as a teacher, so after training you will be paired up with a Breeze teacher who will mentor you for the first 6 months.
They’ve also all been through exactly what you are about to, and so can be a shoulder to cry on, or someone who’s brains you can pick if you’re feeling a little bit lost or unsure of what direction you want to take.
You will be introduced to your mentor at the beginning of the programme and encouraged to have regular catch ups with them throughout the course and ongoing as you start your journey as a teacher.
The mentorship programme is something that is very special to Breeze training.
What style of yoga is taught?
As part of the History and Philosophy modules, we will be touching on the majority of the ancient and modern-day styles of yoga. However, the majority of the course is focused on a Vinyasa style of yoga, with the sequencing based around this. This course will give you the ability to teach a vinyasa flow class as well as a traditional hatha class. The repertoire of postures covered will give you the ability to teach both dynamic and more calm flow classes. There will also be a module on teaching in the hot room safely and effectively.
How is the course material delivered?
Teaching methods include: lectures, experiential classes, small and large group work, practice teaching time and individual homework and exercises to encourage in depth learning and discovery.
90% of the 200hr YTT will be live contact hours with your Teachers and Mentors, whilst 10% is personal study and practice.
How much homework is there?
The Breeze 200 hr YTT is a combination of continuous assessment, practical and written examinations. After each module, reading and small amounts of written work are set. Towards the end of the training, there are slightly longer pieces of work in each subject area to complete. We would suggest that you schedule in between 5 – 10 hours a week for reading and homework in addition to attendance at all the pre-set in studio sessions.
How much practice will I be expected to do throughout the course?
You will be given the sequences that you will learn on training so you an practice them and feel them in your body. We recommend that you begin self practice with these and attend regular classes (a minimum of 2x per week) with teachers approved by the course tutors. In addition, it is strongly recommended that you begin self-practice at home. This will enable you to experiment creatively, question and work toward integrating what you learn in class. Ultimately, this training is about you discovering your own understanding of yoga and teaching from your personal experience. To do this effectively requires self-practice, contemplation, meditation, acquired knowledge and experience.
As a requirement of the training students must attend a minimum 20 hours of taught classes at Breeze as part of the course (these are included in the price of your course).
Do I need to live in Beckenham?
Not necessarily, but all contact hours will be in Beckenham, so you’ll need to find your own accommodation for the intensive week at the beginning, and all weekends following.
Is it possible to work full time alongside the training?
Absolutely. Aside from the week intensive the majority of the contact hours on the training take place over weekends, including Friday evenings. You will need to take one full week holiday for the intensive week at the beginning of the course and a long weekend at the end of it.
I have particular learning needs, is support available?

What level yoga practitioner do I need to be?
Two years of personal study is highly recommended before undertaking this course. It is strongly suggested that students ready to take the next step into teaching, will first have a serious and dedicated personal practice.
What if I’m not super flexible, and my inversions aren’t perfect? Can I still apply?
Of course yoga is for everybody and at Breeze we believe that anyone can practice yoga and encourage all body types to attend training if you feel called to. In your training you will learn firstly how to practice for your body and then learn how to safely teach other body types and making yoga accessible for all.
When can I start teaching yoga?
Once you have passed the Breeze 200 hr YTT and hold a valid first aid certificate and insurance, you will be covered to start teaching classes.
We encourage students to start teaching friends and family and our community classes as soon as possible, as practice is key and the more practice you have, the more confident a teacher you will become.
We believe that you will still have lots to learn, even once the course is finished, which is why we have devised the Breeze mentorship Programme, to give you access to great teachers to shadow so you can practice assisting.
Included in the course is a module on The Business of Yoga, which is aimed to give you the skills to build a successful career in the yoga industry. In this module you will cover the process from becoming a new graduate to a fully-fledged Yoga teacher!
Where can I work after I’ve graduated?
You will be ready to apply to start teaching in yoga studios, gyms, church halls, community centres or anywhere else where yoga teachers are required.
You may chose to go on additional courses to develop more specific skills, for e.g. Pregnancy Yoga, Yoga for Children, Meditation, Yin Yoga or Hot Yoga.
There are opportunities for our very best graduates to teach classes at Breeze and to become part of our Mentor Programme for the following intake. We can also offer many corporate, promotional and large-scale event opportunities.
