Ard Nahoo 100 hour Anusara Yoga Teacher training

Next Course Starts 4th November 2022

Join me on the next 200-Hour Transformational Yoga Teacher Training course starting in November for a journey of learning, growth and inner and outer transformation.

This teacher training with me Noeleen Tyrrell is a place to nurture and cultivate resilience, strength, empathy, joy, love, connection and compassion – all qualities that we need in our lives and in our community right now. If you want to deepen your practice and understanding of all things to do with the practice of yoga including but beyond simply moving in asana, then this course is for you. My student teachers have told me that this is a life changing course that is challenging in the best way possible and that has the power to crack us open to reveal the endless well of joy within.

I have been teaching yoga for over two decades and am at my best (and happiest) sitting in the seat of the teacher surrounded by students who are fully present and open to the magic of the wisdom teachings and practices. Yoga has the power to transform lives especially when we have the courage to go deep into the study and practice with intention. This training is full on and requires a commitment from me as your teacher and from you as the student.

In Sanskrit, the sacred language of yoga, we call this studentship Adhikara. One of the qualities of Adhikara includes having Beginners Mind – being open minded and receptive to new things and having the courage to give those new things a chance. When we have this open and expansive mind then anything is possible!

So, I invite you to come as you are with a big wide open mind and brave heart.


Programme Content

The Anusara 200 Hour Part-Time programme is made up of two distinct 100-hour parts, each with its own distinct curriculum.
The first 100 hours are called The Anusara Immersion and the second 100, the Anusara Teacher Training. Together they make up the 200 HR Teacher Training.

Programme Bookings

Application & Registration


200 Class Room Hours with an expert teacher with over 30 Years experience of practicing yoga and working with the human body, mind and heart. Twelve of these hours will be online in person meet ups, all the rest are in the studio. It is worth emphasising here that many yoga teacher training courses have as little as 60 classroom/contact hours, the rest are made up with you practicing and studying on your own or with online recorded lectures etc. In fact, some courses are fully automated and you do them in your own time, never once sitting with your teacher!

So, when comparing courses please take note of how much time you will get to spend with your teacher and how qualified that teacher is. Ask questions, be discerning.

An Introduction to Anusara Yoga – this is an online course that you will have access to throughout your training and beyond. It is a great tool for you to revise and practice what we have learned during our times together. It includes classes and tutorials on the practice of Anusara Yoga.

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”

Gráinne Mulligan Ribic, 200hr Graduate 2019

From the open day at Ard Nahoo onwards my life changed direction in ways that were out of my hands. It was my first Anusara class and I was hooked. After the class with Noeleen I knew she had to be the teacher I undertook my training with, the way she wove and guided our minds and bodies in the class was pure skill in action.
Open to Grace, Anusara’s principal has become key to my life and since I’ve embraced it life has become a lot easier. Noeleen lives what she teaches and it was a natural flow to follow her lead and study hard and constantly work while I was studying at Ard Nahoo. Naturally life still has ups and downs. I now understand that I will be learning for the rest of my life.

Genuine philosophy, meditation and classes that are extremely challenging and where you see your body and practice evolve quickly are all a given at Ard Nahoo. My understanding of anatomy is hugely improved and Noeleen expects the same high standards from her students. This is not a course where coasting through is an option, you’ll come out the other end a qualified, motivated and empowered teacher. The friends I made in Ard Nahoo are amongst the most amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

Something was clearly going right as Clare Larkin from 360 Hot Yoga where I was a member asked if I’d be interested in learning and teaching the Absolute yoga sequence when I qualified. To make a story short, I was incredibly lucky to leave my 200hr qualification from Ard Nahoo and go straight to a job as a yoga teacher. I love teaching yoga, the energy, the positivity, the people that I meet along the way. I feel so blessed and so grateful and it all began with one amazing class with Noeleen.”
