Each trainee will be required to apply to attend the course with a letter of application, giving reasons for their desires and intentions to be a Fire Angel Yoga Teacher. Each application will be considered carefully and an interview offered to prospective trainees considered suitable for the course. Following this process, a decision will be made to accept or decline the application. This decision will be entirely at the discretion of the Senior Teacher running the Teacher Training Course.

Trainees will be expected to train for 180 ‘contact’ hours, (70% of which will be taught by a Senior Yoga Teacher) and complete at least 20 hours of coursework.
