Contact Hours

  • You will begin your +300 hours with 250 onsite/contact hours training over the year from January to April 2018.  Please note that when you compare 300 hour courses it is wise to ask what are the contact hours. Many 300 hour courses have as little as 150 hours class room training as this is the minimum required if the course is registered with Yoga Alliance UK.
  • Non-contact Hours – The remaining hours will be made up as follows:
    • Teaching: It is a requirement that you teach your own classes and workshops.  Noeleen will support you with any issues or questions as they arise. This can be done by email or by phone.
    • Project: Making an in depth study on a subject of your choice. Researching, writing and presenting your findings.  Usually this takes the form of a 1.5-2 hour workshop which  you present to the group and is open to the external Ard Nahoo yoga community.
    • Reading– deepening your knowledge of key areas such as Anatomy and Philosophy
