Are you ready to elevate your Yoga practice and potentially transform your passion into a second income stream? MerryBody’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is your gateway to becoming a certified Yoga Instructor. It’s 16 weeks of empowerment that will take you on a journey of personal and professional growth. 

Yoga is more than just a series of postures, it’s a journey that nurtures the mind, body and spirit. Our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program is designed to provide you with a comprehensive education in all aspects of Yoga. Our goal, as your teachers, is not only to ensure that you graduate as a confident Yoga instructor but also to make sure you learn in a joy-filled way. This is a core value for us and has been since the creation of our Merrymaker Platform (way back in 2013). When we did many of our own teacher trainings, there was a lot of stress and anxiety. We actually want you to have fun while learning an exciting new skill!

Why Become a Certified Yoga Instructor

There are so many reasons to sign up for a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. From personal development alone to a complete career change. Whether you are a lover of Yoga, or you tried one class and decided you want more in a big way. A Yoga Teacher Training course is a perfect next step. 

Personal Growth

This course will gently push you out of your comfort zone. You’ll gain confidence and a whole set of new knowledge (so important to keep learning!). You’ll build new relationships and worldwide connections.

Career Opportunities

If you want to shift your career or add an extra income stream, teaching Yoga is a perfect opportunity. Yoga is only getting more popular. Think about it: Yoga’s origins began thousands of years ago in India, and there’s a reason why it prevails. While it looks different today, especially in the Western world, its essence remains powerful. By completing this course, you will absolutely gain the skills needed to teach in studios, gyms, wellness centres or even start your own Yoga business. We can not wait to help you make this a reality. 

When we first started teaching on the side, we had 1-2 permanent weekly classes each through the year plus we took on cover classes when we wanted to. We just looked back and we each made about $6k doing this. This was such a fun time in our lives, working as a Yoga Teacher (and Pilates teacher) is work… but it didn’t feel like it at all! Teaching Yoga was a joy-filled break from our online business.  It was only afterwards that we realised, hey this side teaching gig adds up and makes a difference to our incomes. 

Community Impact

It feels great to contribute to the community, whether it’s online, in person, or simply with your family and friends. You know how good a Yoga practice makes you feel. As a teacher, you can help others experience these benefits too. Becoming a Yoga Teacher not only allows you to share the transformative power of Yoga, you will also help others improve their physical, mental and emotional well-being. 

Enrolling in the MerryBody 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is the first step towards something amazing. Our flexible training schedule makes balancing your studies with your life easy. You can complete the course within the 16 weeks, or do it slowly and linger in the studies. It’s all accessible in our School of MerryBody Learning Platform, meaning all you need is a device and the internet. 

We do the course once a year. Our next training will begin in May 2025, if you’d like to be the first to know about the dates and the VERY special early bird savings, sign up to our waitlist OVER HERE!


Yoga is more than an exercise routine, for us, it has changed everything for the better. It’s helped us gain clarity and overthink less. It’s an amazing tool that has allowed us to take better care of our physical and mental health. Yoga brings us joy, in the movement and in learning about its history, philosophy, and benefits. If any of this resonates with you, we know you will love our MerryBody Yoga Teacher Training Course. Whether you’re looking to deepen your practice or start a new career, the MerryBody Yoga Instructor Course is designed to help you succeed.

Always merrymaking,
Emma + Carla
