Yoga Teacher Training

It can be hard to decide where to go for your Yoga Teacher Training or to find a course to take your practice to that much deeper place.


Mandala YMR offers an authentic training experience designed to develop your own personal style of teaching.  It's an immersive experience, that will shift your perceived limitations physically, mentally and spiritually. 

Our experienced and accredited teachers will guide you through each energetic day. Your training will be taught in Sanskrit and English as we are dedicated to upholding the custom and culture of Yoga as a practical life aid - not a religion.

Learn to assist while teaching in class and grasp what it means to be a teacher in servitude to your students.  You will be provided with the comforts of rest in our single or shared accommodation and restoration through nourishing meals to fuel your body.

Words from our Mandala Yoga Training Family



The whole YTT was just a joy from start to finish! I had the absolute best time and didn't want to leave.

From the moment I stepped into the shala at sunrise to the moment my head hit the pillow at the end of the day I was in complete yoga heaven. I enjoyed having the opportunity to really focus on my personal practice, I could feel myself getting stronger over the 3 weeks of the training programme and my technique definitely became a lot tighter.


I didn't have a meditation practice before the YTT, I had tried and failed on numerous occasions and couldn't understand the hype surrounding it, but it turns out that all I needed was some consistent practice, beautiful teaching and a little bit of encouragement to help my mind let go. The early morning meditation practice ended up being one of the highlights of my day, and practicing in such a beautiful environment with my new yoga family made it even more special.


I loved getting to delve deeper into the philosophy of yoga and it has given me a lot of food for thought in terms of working on my own personal development, as well as helping me to improve the way in which I approach teaching a yoga class. I feel incredibly lucky to have had Tara and the Mandala YMR Team as my teachers - they are all shining examples of pure, authentic passion. They were all deeply committed to helping us find our inner teacher and provided us with endless support and expert guidance whilst they challenged us on a daily basis.

The small group size not only helped us to bond incredibly quickly with one another but also enabled us to have one-on-one time with the teachers and I feel grateful to have experienced such focused attention. The enthusiasm that the teachers brought to the YTT was infectious and it encouraged us to shine brightly as our best selves.

The YTT was an incredibly special experience and I can't wait to share the yoga magic that I experienced on the course with my future students. 



I chose to do my Yoga Teacher Training with Tara because I am inspired by her in-depth knowledge and accessible approach to yoga. She is authentic, humble and incredible. I have deep gratitude for the way in which she taught us throughout the YTT, It was fun yet respectful to the yogic traditions.


Upon completion of my YTT I feel prepared for anything, and I mean anything. My very first cover class after completing my YTT, I was told all week 'restorative, restorative, restorative' and when I showed up the owner of the studio said, 'no it's flow'. I didn't even bat an eyelid, I had 10 minutes to prepare a flow class but I felt totally confident to be able to do so and to draw on everything Tara taught us.


After completing my 200hr YTT training, I'm feeling set up for success and confident that Tara's support is still readily available to me even after finishing the training. 


All in all, thank you Tara for being a superstar teacher, for such a wonderful training and a wonderful, nurturing, at times challenging, learning experience that I will always remember. I can't wait to continue my learning with you.



Going  on the Mandala YMR 200 Yoga Teacher Training with Tara was a Rebirth!

I'm so grateful I experienced this immersion. It was challenging and expansive for my Mind, Body and Soul in a safe and supportive environment.


Truly a transformative experience and much, much more than a teacher training program. I loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back and do the Mandala 300 Yoga Teacher Training with Tara and my Mandala YMR family.
