EMPOWERTM Is For You If:

  • You're stuck in the corporate rat race or feel that your life lacks real purpose and know you need to do something more meaningful with your life right now or you'll completely lose your mind.
  • You're overwhelmed, exhausted, unfulfilled or feel like you're failing at everything (hello mum guilt) and you need to get your mojo back, like yesterday. You're ready to completely transform your health and fitness levels; change your mindset; regain your confidence and finally, feel proud of YOU again.
  • You'd love to have a fulfilling career that actually 'makes a difference,' but also be able to do the school run; have time for date night; take holidays whenever you like and enjoy the occasional guilt-free daytime trip to the hairdresser.
  • You know that you need to start looking after your physical and mental well-being, but with everything and everyone else you have to look after, what you need is bottom of the pile. You have no time and no idea where you would even start.
  • You want to spend time (guilt-free) working on the blocks that have been holding you back for years, that you haven't quite got around to but always meant to deal with... but therapy takes time and is expensive and you can't fit ANOTHER thing into your already over-flowing list of commitments.
  • You'd love to know EXACTLY what you need as a woman to look and feel your best at every stage of life - we're talking yoga (on and off the mat,) nutrition, mindset, holistic self-care and a deep understanding of the key female life transitions and hormonal fluctuations that can make or break your happiness!
  • You're passionate about empowering other women with this knowledge and want to learn evidence-based practices and gain a time-tested and accredited women's yoga teaching qualification to teach yoga to women at every stage of life along the way!
  • You're worried you don't have enough experience, time or money to become a yoga teacher, but you still want to pursue it. EMPOWER programme is designed to accommodate all levels of yoga experience and can be completed at your own pace from home (with ongoing guidance,) We offer installments and timescales to suit everyone.
  • You'd love the idea of running your own yoga business but you've no idea how to set up or run a business and frankly, the idea terrifies you! We've got you: YogaBellies founder Cheryl, a Dragonsโ€™ Den Winner and Multiple Business award winner, will personally show you everything that she did herself to create and grow YogaBellies and provide you with tools, templates and systems to get you there every step of the way.
  • You want to save thousands on a "one-stop" specialist programme that's been designed for women that will be the only yoga and empowerment training you'll ever need - for you and to teach other women! You want to join a programme where you'll earn the price of the programme back within 12 months by teaching just 2 classes per week!! (and double that by teaching 2 more.)
  • You want to join an established (15 years!), world-recognized teacher training and empowerment programme that starts with working on YOUR personal blocks and yoga practice, and THEN qualifies you to empower other women with yoga through pregnancy, post-partum with baby, menopause, and the menstrual cycle. You'll be joining a global community of women supporting women, as a yoga teacher and practitioner.

If any of these describe you, then Empower is the perfect programme for you. We have helped countless women transform their lives, and we know we can help you too.

Don't wait any longer to start living the life you deserve.

Here's What Some Of Our EMPOWER Graduates Thought:

Why EMPOWERTM Is NOT Your Standard Yoga Teacher Training

  • Our Empower Yoga Teacher Training Programme isn't for yoga snobs or filled with intimidating terminology. You can leave your school memories of assignments and exams at the door because we're all about one-to-one and group mentoring in a fun, friendly environment. Say goodbye to death by PowerPoint and endless video watching; we're bringing you live, interactive experiences instead. Join Cheryl and her senior yoga teachers for weekly online sessions, featuring teacher training, interactive YogaBellies class teaching, teaching critiques, Q&A, and ongoing support to ensure you truly understand and can apply everything you learn.
  • It's not a contest for the best headstand or an Instagram showcase; the best yoga teachers excel at instructing and adapting postures for their students in a safe and appropriate manner, taking into account what's going on with their students: body, mind, and soul. Our programme offers lifetime access to training resources and ongoing support from YogaBellies HQ and our global community of teachers for your yoga practice, teaching, and business.
  • It's not about following traditional yoga practices created for men, by men. We're focused on understanding the female anatomy, psyche, and emotions, so you and the women you teach can reap the most benefits from yoga at every life stage.
  • Forget cramming years of training into a 3-week Bali retreat or slogging through a laborious 2-year course before even getting a chance to teach. Our programme equips you to teach and support women confidently after just 6 months, but we don't stop there. We continue to support you, helping you learn and develop your yoga teaching skills for as long as you're with YogaBellies.
  • Our training isn't a cookie-cutter hatha yoga course where you're stuck in a class of fifty others and we churn out identikit teachers. We personalize and customize it to meet your needs, starting with your very own Empower Plan to ensure the programme works for you. There's no pressure to complete, as we understand life happens, and we're here to help you reach your goals.
  • We're not just about yoga as a physical exercise on the mat; we embrace yoga in every aspect of life and empower women to do the same. Our programme covers living in harmony with feminine cycles, seasons, and life stages, focusing on the bigger picture and how YogaBellies can improve women's lives.
  • We're not about being serious, mysterious, or judging others who may not be as "yogic" as us. We're about supporting all women on their journey, becoming specialists in women's health, and having fun along the way.

So, if you're ready for a yoga teacher training experience that breaks the mould and truly empowers you, look no further than YogaBellies EMPOWER Teacher Training and Empowerment Programme.
