Programme Content

The Anusara 200hr Part-Time programme is made up of two distinct 100 hour courses, each with its own distinct curriculum. Both courses are superbly designed to bring the student on a journey of self-enquiry, deepening of personal practice and learning how to teach what you know and understand in a clear and empowering way.  In this programme we will complete the Immersion and move directly to Teacher Training.

PT100I – Anusara Yoga Immersion Course

Our Anusara Yoga 100 Hour Immersion is an invitation to anyone who wishes to go deeper into their own practice and understanding of all things yoga.

Yoga is so much more than simply moving on your mat, it is a potent means for self-discovery and requires that the practitioner has courage to open up not only the physical body but the heart and mind too.  In this part-time training we offer space and guidance to do just that while going deeper into the practice and learning.

In this introduction to the basic philosophy, alignment principles and practice of Anusara yoga, we will study and explore:

  • Universal Principles of Alignment™ – technique, lectures and asana practice
  • Yoga Philosophy
  • Pranayama and Meditation
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Journaling and contemplation

The Immersion is a pre-requisite for registration in the Anusara Teacher Training!

Next part time course starts October, 2020

PT100T – Anusara Yoga Teacher Training Course

Anusara yoga offers students, teachers and trainees one of the best yoga teacher training an opportunities in the world. Students will use the skills and knowledge acquired in the Immersion and add to that key teaching skills that will help them grow into wonderful confident yoga teachers.

After completion of the Immersion course students can move onto the Teacher Training where you will study and explore:

  • Universal Principles of Alignment™
  • Asana Practice
  • Pranayama and Meditation Practice
  • Philosophy and Lifestyle
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Teaching Skills – teaching systematically, giving effective instructions, observation, demonstration, teaching what you know
  • Sequencing
  • Theming
  • Teaching Meditation
  • Adjustments and Assisting
  • Teaching Practice
  • Yoga Business


  • Applicants for the 200 hour programme must have a practice and understanding of yoga from attending weekly classes and/or having a home practice.  It is difficult to say in terms of ‘years of practice’ how many are required as everybody starts at a different point and learns at a different rate. We will have telephone interviews and assess the suitability of each person individually.
  • Application form including photo of student in Trikonasana (Triangle), Adho Mukha Svanasana (Dog head down) and Sukasana (easy sitting or other sitting pose) must be submitted.   Please do not be intimidated by the photos, they are only needed to give us an idea of your sense of alignment in practice. If you are able to come and meet us on one of our open days or another time that suits then there will be no need for photos.
  • Before the course begins you must complete a 6 Week Beginners Anusara Yoga Course online via YogaBubble. The course can be taken in your own time and you will have access to 6 Ansuara Yoga Classes and Tutorials. Details on how to register for this course gifted from us will be sent once you pay your depsoit.
  • A love of yoga, stamina and a strong work ethic

Class Times

9am – 6pm with an hour for lunch.  Timetable for residential retreat will differ.


Andrea Farrell, 200 hr Graduate 2019

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time training under Noeleen Tyrrell at Ard Nahoo. She is an amazing teacher with so much to give. I felt the 200hrs Yoga Teacher Training course give me the tools to begin my Yoga teaching journey. Everything from the depth of study into the philosophy of yoga , to anatomy, to proper alignment in poses and practice in teaching classes was covered , with great skill.
I believe this course has benefited me and helped me learn so much more about yoga both from a personal point of view and from a teaching aspect. I met some amazing people during the course and made some amazing friendships for life”

Covid & Changes to the Course delivery

We are monitoring the changing situation weekly and will adapt the delivery of the programme according to government guidelines.   We have been busy making our spaces as safe as  possible for our guests and students.  Our staff have been trained in Covid Complicancy and Ard Nahoo has an award from Failte Ireland for its efforts.
Changes we know already are;
  • Students will be required to bring their own yoga mat and yoga props – a full yoga kit can be ordered from us.
  • Students must fully agree to our Covid policy including amongst other things; observing personal hygiene & coughing/sneezing etiquette; disclosing if they have been in contact with any one who has been diagnosed with Covid.

We have made the following changes to our training schedule in order to comply with mandatory guidelines set out by the government and to make the experience of teacher training safe, comfortable, accessible and joyful for both our students and teachers/staff.

The key changes are;

3 Day Weekends will now change to 2 Day Weekends – Saturday & Sunday 9-5pm.  We have a reduced number of places due to spacings required between mats.  We are not clear at this stage if the wearing of masks is mandatory for us.  Either way, we will follow the law and have set out the days to allow for small ‘fresh air’/no mask breaks.  

 Missing or extra hours will be made up in the following way

  • 1 x Wednesday per month – 6pm – 9pm (Live Online) – if you cannot make the live sessions you can make a certain amount of these hours up by watching at another time but the best effort must be made to attend live.
  • Recorded lectures to be taken in between each module
  • Live Streamed classes on Tuesday evenings (if you can’t make the class on Tuesday there is no problem, you can do it at a time that suits your schedule)

Please note that if a further lockdown, nationwide or otherwise occurs this programme will be completed online and on the same dates.

Please carefully read and fill out our online Terms & Conditions.

Due to Covid social distancing regulations and in line with government guidelines, we cannot at present take shared accommodation bookings. Individual Eco Cabin rental is still available however. Here is a list of local accommodation:Hostels in Sligo
