Ard Nahoo Yoga School (Leitrim) is delighted to announce details of the fourth year of Yoga Teacher Training commencing this Spring in Dromahair, County Leitrim.

Yoga Teacher Training is perfect for those with a passion for yoga, who are looking to take their lives in a new direction. It’s a popular choice of career for those who are starting a new chapter following retirement or redundancy, or those with their own yoga practice.

In 2015, Ard Nahoo will provide a new residential 200 hour programme, the first of its kind in Ireland. Another new course is the 300 hour post grad teacher training as well as the usual yoga retreats and the second Ard Nahoo Yoga Festival.

Ard Nahoo is a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance UK and US, international associations representing yoga teachers and schools worldwide. Located on the west coast of Ireland, Ard Nahoo is accessible by road or air via Knock Airport. It is the only rural yoga school of its kind delivering teacher training, workshops and hosting the world’s top class yoga teachers throughout the year.
