200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

April-June 2021

Union Station Yoga (London)

Becky Farbstein (Senior Yoga Teacher)

Guest teachers: Elodie Frati, Rishin Paonaskar, and Anna Norbury


This boutique, Yoga Alliance UK certified, 200-hr foundational yoga teacher-training course will give you the tools you need to effectively teach intelligent, well-balanced vinyasa yoga classes. Through daily asana practice, subject-specific lectures, group discussions, and many hours spent practicing teaching, you will become a skillful, authentic, informed yoga teacher. The senior yoga teacher, Becky Farbstein, has a unique background, having trained and worked as a prehistoric archaeologist for more than 15 years before becoming a successful yoga teacher. Her deep understanding and respect for how modern science can help us better understand ancient history guides and informs her approach as a yoga teacher. Anatomy modules will be led by Elodie Frati, a yoga teacher and osteopath in training.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, this training will be conducted as a hybrid course, with part of the course held in person at Union Station Yoga, and part conducted online via Zoom.


This course covers all the key topics of a foundational yoga teacher training. 

Modules topics include:

  • Asana

  • Applied anatomy

  • History of yoga and philosophy

  • Teaching methodology

  • Sequencing

  • Assisting and adjusting

  • Pranayama and meditation

  • The business of yoga.


All students will learn to apply contemporary science, anatomy, sports medicine, and injury management strategies to help them teach smart, safe, physically sustainable asana-based classes that are appropriate for modern practitioners. One homework assignment will focus on injury-management in common injuries for yoga practitioners. Participants will learn how to teach a set sequence, and homework will also teach students to write their own sequences and build a comprehensive teaching curriculum, using a guided methodology for planning classes. All participants will also have an opportunity to teach a public community class at Retreat Studio near the end of the training.

​Certification will be based on a two-part examination: practical, in which the trainee teaches a full 60-minute class to other YTT participants with assessors in the room; and written. Participants will also be expected to complete the two homework assignments and do independent reading before and during the course (30 non-contact hours).
