Level 1 Immersion

Yoga Teacher Training Course

The Level 1 Immersion Teacher Training Course is held at Ashram Yoga’s Ohui Retreat in New Zealand over the duration of one month. In addition to learning how to become a competent and confident yoga teacher, you will also experience the benefits of living within an ashram lifestyle. 

We begin with beginners' yoga and over the duration of the course, progressively build to intermediate practices. This course is taught systematically, which creates a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding as well as providing a supporting framework for teaching yoga once you graduate.


At the end of the course, you will be qualified for the Yoga Alliance's RYT-200 certification and will have the skills to teach beginner to intermediate yoga postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), relaxation (nidra vidya) and meditation (dhyana).

Course Structure

Workshops and classes are held every day starting early each morning and continuing in the afternoon. We also run an evening programme including philosophy and kirtan (chanting to music). There is one dedicated period per day for karma yoga (the yoga of selfless action).

Our sessions are usually 2 – 3 hours long and include both group and personal work. We conduct them in our covered outdoor classroom and also inside the main building and at other locations such as the adjacent beach.

Written assignments and practical teaching practice will be assessed by the course instructors.


Our immersion teacher training courses are held at the Ashram Yoga Ohui Retreat, 758 Ohui Road, Opoutere, Coromandel Peninsula.
