abouT the 200hr program

"Every year we have a mixed and diverse group of trainees at varying points on their yoga journey. There are some who have minimal experience, but who nevertheless feel a deep pull toward the practice. There are others who have been practising for many years and who feel ready to deepen their knowledge and practice. All soon discover that the true essence of yoga has little to do with advanced yoga asana and much to do with one’s entire approach to every aspect of life itself. An “advanced” practice is something that may come in time, but is by no means a prerequisite for the course" - Rose Lamont - Lead Course Facilitator.


Although there are no official requisites for the course. We do ask is that you come with a desire to learn and immerse yourself in the course.

We start from the beginning, hence the course is suitable for beginner students wanting to study yoga for their own personal growth and for more advanced students wanting to deepen their knowledge and learn to teach yoga.

Every year we have a mixed and diverse group at varying levels. Some who have never practiced and others who have been practising for years. As you will discover yoga has little to do with advanced yoga asana.

Yoga is a sophisticated philosophy which encompasses many techniques for transforming the mind and our relationship to the world. Hence advanced physical practice is not a requirement.

I can now say that yoga is my new love and that this comprehensive course was beyond anything I imagined. The highly experienced teachers and lecturers made us feel welcome and were willing to give as much information as we could pack into our brains. The 8 weekends was well structured and informative on both the theory and practical side.I cannot wait to do more training. At Ritual and beyond. Thankyou

Quotation Mark

“My training at Ritual really opened my eyes to how using these ancient yogic techniques and practices creates a life of more equanimity, joy, and inner radiance which naturally touches the lives of those around you. During this time of worldly turbulence I think cultivating these practices for ourselves and our communities couldn’t be more important.”
