To stand out as a yoga teacher you need to be technically excellent and knowledgeable. But to get students hungry to come back for more requires something beyond the theory and mechanics, or even the sequence and the words you use. It's about you being able to connect with and inspire your students in a powerful way – to lead them on a journey that connects to their hearts and minds as well as their bodies.
So yes, LLiV yoga teacher training covers the technical and philosophical aspects included in other trainings. But our unique training system and transformational coaching far exceeds the content of textbooks and other courses. We’ll help you tap in to your unique potential as both a powerful human being and inspirational yoga teacher, that packs classes and changes lives.
And if you don’t intend to teach and just want to deepen your yoga practice, our program will grow your physical practice and have you doing those arm balances or poses you’ve always dreamed of.
It’ll also give you tools to connect you to what you really want and give you the confidence to pursue it. Plus the tools to help you handle life’s daily challenges in a more calm and positive way - like public speaking, dealing with difficult people, public transport and family.
You’ll become a true leader and discover what it means to ‘own’ yourself, whether it be in your personal life, your workplace, your home or the yoga studio.
And, you’ll have lots of fun getting there.
Do you feel like you’ve lost sight of who you really are and what you want?
Do you feel like your life is flying by and you’re not making the most of it?
Maybe life is pretty good, but you know you’re capable of much more and somehow something is holding you back?
Perhaps you long to be excited and fulfilled by life, and living in your potential.
Maybe you just want more.
My name is Dylan Ayaloo and I used to feel exactly the same. I used to feel stuck.
I realized that somewhere I'd lost the fearlessness, freedom and joy I’d had as a small child. I was somehow stifled by other people’s expectations of what my life should look like and how I should be.
I was running the corporate treadmill and doing OK, at least by conventional standards: good money, nice home, nice life.
But inside I felt like my soul was dying. My life had no real meaning. My personal relationships sucked and I wasn’t even speaking to my Dad. I looked at my older colleagues who were caught up in complaining, living unhealthy lives, stressed out and hating their lives.
I knew it would be my biggest regret if I became the same.
I knew something had to change. If I kept living my life the way I was, no job, no home, no amount of money or stuff would relieve the unfulfilled feeling I felt inside.
I knew that it was me that had to change. And probably like you, I instinctively knew this thing - yoga - was the key.
Like outdated software, we all run on beliefs we form - about ourselves and the world around us – when we're children. As we grow older, we experience life through the filter of these beliefs. And whilst they serve to protect us, as we grow up, they also drain us of our energy, self-trust, confidence and potential.We live a fraction of the life - the joy and fulfillment - that we were made for.
None of us can see our own blindspots and breaking free of these limiting beliefs is impossible on your own.
The LLiV 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training Program will not only train you to be an outstanding yoga teacher. It will also show you how the physical practice of yoga and its philosophical teachings can help unlock your potential. Our transformation coaching will squash your limiting beliefs and open the door to a sense of freedom and ease… and your unlimited power as a yoga teacher and human being.
Within just a few weeks you'll graduate ready and able to teach yoga, confident in your ability and hungry to share your passion.
You’ll also rediscover who you really are and find freedom from the stories and beliefs that have been holding you back for years. Stories like: “I can’t do that”, “I’m not good enough”, “I’ll fail”, “Everyone will think I’m stupid”.
We all have them, but we can also all learn to get beyond them.
Imagine what it would be like to reconnect to your free spirit, tune in to the wisdom of your heart and to say yes to opportunities - to live life fully without letting fears and self doubts hold you back.
And, how amazing it would be to know you’ve made a difference in the world by inspiring other people to do the same.
The program has blown my mind. The transformation work that Dylan has done on all of us, and the impact that it has had on us has been incredible. This is an understatement but I have no words to describe it better).
This is the best thing I've ever done and I'm so grateful for this life-changing experience.
Thank you for changing my life. I'm grateful beyond words.
I always knew that if I did a teacher training I would want do to it with Dylan.
I had high expectations but the course exceeded them. I genuinely feel that I could walk in to any yoga studio tomorrow and smash an audition.
But more important than that is how I feel about myself: calm, relaxed, confident and grateful.

No program will prepare you better for professional teaching This is a practical program where you apply and experience your learnings repeatedly, so they stick.

If you want to stand out as a yoga teacher, as well as being able to tune in to what your students want and need, you must be able to tap in to the power of who you really.
We'll take you way beyond the foundational content covered in other teacher training programs to discover your ‘Ninja Teaching Skills’, ‘Your Secret Sauce’ and ‘Your Teaching Super Powers’.And that's where you stand out as a yoga teacher and become magnetic.
Learn a sequence which is the basis for your technical learning. Your training is not wholly based upon the delivery of this sequence, but rather its a starting point upon which your knowledge and skills are built
You won’t be given a script but will have the freedom to choose your own words, plus daily practice teaching sessions to test what works for you and your students
Daily yoga practice means you learn the sequence in your body through muscle and brain memory. You’ll gain strength and flexibility, and your body and heart will be opened for deeper work
Discover how to direct your breath and to use it as a tool to influence your own energy levels - and physical and mental state - wherever you are
One of the biggest fears new teachers have is teaching people with advanced practices. You’ll learn fundamental principles of alignment that apply across a multitude of poses, so you’ll have the knowledge to support and guide both beginner and advanced students, even when you can’t do the pose yourself
Gain a basic understanding of physical anatomy and an appreciation that because all your students have different body sizes and shapes, strengths and weaknesses, there is no such thing as a perfect pose. Learn how to use props to give support so that people can find success in their ‘best version’ of a pose rather than failure in a perfection that doesn’t exist
By learning about the Ayurvedic and Chakra energy systems you’ll gain the ability to vary your teaching not only depending on body shape and size, but also on the season, time of day, mood of your class, or energetic nature of your students
Gain an understanding of the science and art of intelligent sequencing - on both anatomical and energetic levels - so that you can teach your students safely and in a way that leaves them feeling complete in their body and practice, and physically, mentally and emotionally cleansed
With our applied anatomy workshop you’ll gain a level of sophistication in your knowledge that few yoga teachers have. This will bring an extra dimension to your teaching, particularly private sessions. Learn how to spot muscle weakness or tension and what poses to use to correct them
Discover how to see and read the room and use your students to drive the content of your classes. You’ll never run out of content and will always be able to speak to your students in a way that’s valuable to them
By practicing the art of molding and shaping class energy using your voice, language, timing, volume and presence, you’ll learn to ‘own’ the classes you teach and speak with an authority and command that people feel confident in and follow
Gain the ability to revolutionise your student’s practice through touch and create break-through moments for them with basic hands-on assisting
Your confidence as a teacher will grow exponentially as you gain real teaching experience in your training group and within a live studio setting with paying customers. You’ll have a playground to apply the skills and tools you’ve gained, and where you have permission to make mistakes that you can learn from. Whilst many students graduate with no real teaching experience and a sense of fear, you will graduate with confidence and a passion and hunger to teach
Discover the secret to creating sold-out classes: by learning how to create valuable content from your own life and experiences, you’ll grow from being a teacher that calls out poses to one that your students can connect with and relate to. You'll leave able to influence and inspire your students in a positive way they can’t get enough of
The work you’ll do on yourself will help you identify and break through your limiting beliefs. You’ll reconnect to who you really are and in so doing, find an inner certainty and confidence that radiates from you and makes you unshakeable
When you’re comfortable and free within yourself you’re more open to both share yourself and receive from others. This gives you an unrivalled ability to connect with your students and touch them on the level of heart and spirit
Discover the single most important guiding principle as a teacher, and use it to become magnetic to both your students and studios
As you connect to your true self and your purpose, you’ll stand out as a powerful teacher and a confident and authentic leader, whether in the yoga studio, your community or life.
You’ll become a master of influence, a conduit of change and an inspiration for others.
LLiV Yoga is a powerful and athletic style of yoga for people of all shapes, sizes and ages, who deal with the physical and mental challenges of modern life. It works through the whole body in a way that gives release to areas of tension whilst building strength, flexibility and resilience.
It’s a style that recognizes individual differences and encourages growth – physically, mentally and emotionally - on and off the mat.
Whilst the LLiV studio is heated to 25-30 degrees, the style can practiced equally well in cool studios.
As a playful practice it promotes a real connection to the wisdom of the body. Classes are not scripted and teachers are trained to bring their own essence and personality to their classes, and to build connection with and between students.
The aim of LLiV Yoga is to create a feeling of freedom, flow, personal power and vitality.
With the growth in fixed hot yoga sequences, increasingly, yoga teacher training is becoming about creating cookie-cutter teachers who teach a fixed sequence from a specified script. Yawn!Because we work on the premise that you already have a powerful yoga teacher within you, we believe you should have the space for creativity and self expression, and the adaptability to respond to what you see in the class in front of you.Unlike many schools, we also have the benefit of teaching thousands of people each month and know that no class’s mood or energy is ever the same…. So no class should ever be the same either.
As a new yoga teacher you need the structure of an expertly constructed class sequence that is
Most yoga teachers - old and new - have the desire to be creative and expressive with the sequence, to try new things and play.
Without a thorough understanding of sequencing this playfulness can lead to a drop in the quality of your class and the student’s experience. Worse still, it can result in injury as a result of the body not being properly warm or prepared.
The LLiV Intelligent Sequencing System™ combines the structure and framework of a base sequence with the ability to choose from different poses within each section. This means you have the option to vary poses within a proven structure depending on the level of the class, their energy and attitude, and your creativity.This system creates the best of both worlds: an intelligently structured framework, but with the ability to create variation within it.
Which means even as a new teacher, you have the certainty of an effective sequence with the space for creative freedom.
I went in to it knowing it would be a transformational journey but it completely smashed my expectations. I have amazing tools to live an authentic life, to dare to live from the heart and be open and free… I have confidence now that I can teach powerful classes.
I feel so much more confident and free in myself… It has been incredible!
The program was amazing. More than I could have ever expected. The space and support we were given to explore ourselves and figure out what pushes us and what holds us back was brilliant. I really didn't think as much time would have been given to this...
And of course the facilitators were extremely patient, inspiring, encouraging - all in all it was amazing!
Overall this program is the best thing I have done for myself. It was challenging, there was lots to learn, but the rewards greatly outweigh the effort. We learnt about Yoga, philosophy, alignment, anatomy and managing energy.
These guys are teaching at the highest level. I couldn't recommend enough. Thank you!
You just want to learn cool yoga poses - Your practice will grow exponentially but this is a great by-product of the training, rather than it’s focus You don’t want to grow yourself or be the best version of you that you can be - Becoming free of your limiting beliefs and letting go of your fears is challenging. The rewards are immense but you need to be up for it You don’t want to contribute or make a difference in the world - whether it’s by teaching yoga or just being a more conscious, compassionate person, it all makes a difference You’d rather be caught up in drama, blame, complaint and doubt than facing the world and it’s challenges positively
You want to jump in, play full out and reap the benefits of every experience available to you You want to inspire others and bring about positive change – whether through teaching yoga or your own behavior You want to be part of something amazing You want your walls broken down and your heart opened so you can become a more open, loving, confident and inspiring person - the person you really are You want to connect with your purpose and feel excited by life and your place in the world

All Teacher Training Programs are lead and overseen by Dylan Ayaloo – Founder of LLiV Yoga (formerly Hot Power Yoga), creator of the LLiV Yoga style and Intelligent Sequencing System™.Dylan presents the ancient philosophies and teachings of yoga in a modern and accessible form that creates programs which are challenging, well-informed, fun, sometimes a little unconventional, and certainly life-changing.
Malaysian-born Dylan comes from a background of martial arts at Olympic standard. He discovered yoga at a time when his body called for a greater sense of natural well-being and healing from the years of full impact sport and the resulting injuries.
Dylan walked away from a successful but unfulfilled corporate role to create a new life sharing his love of yoga on the other side of the world.
Dylan has practiced various styles of yoga, but fell in love with Power Vinyasa and Forrest Yoga, in which he trained in Australia, the UK and US. He went on to assist in over 2000 hours of intensive yoga teacher training around the globe. He is one of the UK's most senior Baptiste trained Power Vinyasa teachers, and was one of the first to bring Power Vinyasa Yoga to England.
Having trained in transformation and personal growth coaching with London’s Concord Institute, Anthony Robbins and Chloe Madanes, Dylan brings a level or support and compassion to his coaching that is both highly effective and unique. Dylan is a powerful coach and facilitator with a particular skill in guiding students to connect with their purpose, believe their potential and realise it.
Sandra, MA, MA, is a Forrest Yoga Mentor and the first of just 2 European Forrest Yoga Guardians. She has assisted Ana Forrest at her workshops and teacher trainings since 2009 and also has a background in Ashtanga and Jivamukti.
Sandra’s interest and expertise lies in finding the integration between spirituality, psychotherapy and physical practices.
At the heart of her teachings lies the assumption that we need to return to our bodies and to feeling in order to experience peace, acceptance and self-love, which in turn will lay the foundation for genuine relationships with other people.
As well as being the owner of 2 successful studios, Sandra recently completed her 5 year studies in body psychotherapy at CBPC in Cambridge (UK).
Ted-Talker Jambo Truong is a Consultant of Integrated Health with special interests in Classical East-Asian Medicine, Functional Anatomy, Applied Kinesiology and acupuncture.
His expertise in relation to yoga has lead him to facilitate specialist workshops in the area of Functional Anatomy. Jambo is Forrest Yoga’s 2nd European Guardian and has been travelling assistant to Ana Forrest for the previous 5 years.
Jambo's passion is in proving why what we do in yoga poses & pranayama is effective. He sits on the Council for Yoga Alliance UK (Yoga Therapy) & various boards for HIV, Hepatitis C & Substance Mis-Use.
He established an organisation that specialises in yoga for addiction, chronic pain & trauma, and is currently supervising researchers connected to University of Northumbria and Cape Town.
His 2-day Anatomy workshop is integrated in to the LLiV 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training, but is also available as a standalone workshop for RYT200 Teachers.
This program had everything I had expected and more... A lot of the mystery surrounding yoga and teaching was delivered perfectly and very much in the style of the life we live now and letting us see it for ourselves from our own experience.
Life changing and life saving. I have renewed faith in myself and a whole new outlook on life. It means all of the problems that seemed so huge and impossible are now small and manageable. Say ‘yes’ – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Q: I’ve never practiced LLiV Yoga. What can I do to try a class?
A: Trying a class is a great idea. Come to our Clapham venues, or go to our Videos Page and practice along at home. Q: I don't want to teach. Is this course right for me?A: Many participants start a yoga teacher training with a hunger to grow their practice and learn more about the depths of yoga but no desire to teach.By graduation, these same people are often the most passionate about sharing their knowledge so that other people can experience the same benefits they have.Even if you currently don’t think you want to teach, we still recommend you choose a program that will train you to be the best yoga teacher you can be, and that will give you skills and confidence you can take in to your life whilst also giving you the learnings and yogic experiences you seek. That way, if you do change your mind and decide to teach, you won’t have any regrets about the course you chose.Q: I’m not sure my practice is good enough. How can I find out?A: Despite our yoga practice being quite an athletic style, we’re not all about fancy poses. To be an amazing yoga teacher you don’t need to be a super-yogi, but do you need to be able to relate to your students and their experience on the mat.Technical knowledge, body awareness and the ability to translate instructions in to movement are more important than being able to get your foot behind your head.If you’re worried, send us a 10 minute video from your mobile phone showing us your practice, and we’ll let you know if you’re ready.And if you’re preganant or injured, don’t worry. We've had several babies go through our trainings and often our injuries are our biggest gifts in terms of learning to practice safely and in a way that supports and strengthens our bodies.Q: What’s the structure of an average day?A: Although each day will vary, most days will include:Morning pranayama and meditationPractical session e.g. posture workshops, assistingLecture e.g. chakras, yoga philosophyCheck-ins – to see where you’re at, review learnings and get clarification or coaching where you need itPractice teaching sessionsLunch and energy breaks Q: I don’t have the money now but I want to do the course. What can I do? A: Don’t let finances stop you! Where there is a will there is a way and we can help make it easy for you. We offer bespoke payment plans which allow you to save your money with us, and spread your payment over whatever period you need up to 12 months.
Q: I work full time. Isn’t a course that spreads over the whole year better for me?A: Like planning having a child, we always think we can’t find the time to fit something in until we do. Whilst spreading the course across a year may feel more manageable, it can be harder to maintain your motivation as it can feel you’re losing your spare time for month upon month.We believe that with intensity comes an immersion in learning which gives greater opportunity to keep building knowledge. With a course that's spread out there's a greater need for reviewing and going back over previous ground, meaning the amount of content covered in the 200 hours is reduced.Most of our participants work full time and our course structure requires a maximum of 10 working days (Mon-Fri), leaving many people with another 3 weeks of holiday time to spend as they wish.Q: Are you registered with Yoga Alliance?
A: We are a registered Yoga Teacher Training School with Yoga Alliance US (International). This is the most recognised standard and is the one that yoga studios, health clubs, gyms and fitness facilities will look for, globally. This registration shows that our curriculum meets a minimum standard. It's not an indication of our quality and there are many different standards of school that carry the same registration. So if you're comparing schools, consider the registration as a minimum requirement, but check out the schools in detail. Attend an Open House, check out testimonials, attend classes and speak to graduates. This will give you a much better idea of the quality of the school. Q: I’m not based in South London, where can I stay?A: We have a list of recommended Air B’n’B hosts you can stay with in the local area and some of our graduates also rent their spare rooms. Staying with a graduate is a fantastic option as they understand the program and what you’ll be experiencing. Just ask for a list once you’ve signed up. Q: I want to be immersed in my yoga teacher training. Aren’t tropical residential trainings a better option?A: Beaches are all well and good but knowledge and practical experience are power. Teaching yoga is both a gift and a big responsibility and you really don’t want to graduate from a program that hasn’t adequately prepared you to handle its challenges.You’ll also be immersed in a yoga bubble’ during your training, but it can be painful when it bursts. We advise you don’t choose a training based upon its palm trees and sunsets, but how well it will equip you to be able to teach and live a powerful life. And, how much support is availble after graduation.Q: I think I want to have the ‘Indian Experience’. Won’t I miss that if I do your program?A: This is really a question of what you want from your training. Many ‘traditional’ trainings are heavy on lectures and exploring the ancient yoga texts and philosophies. Also, the traditional teaching style is very different to those popular in the West. It’s not unheard of for tutors not to show up to sessions, and for there to be no real administrative structure in place for you to go to when this happens.Is your biggest priority being confident and able to teach in a way that will gain you employment, or having a cultural experience? Neither is wrong or right but be clear on what you want the outcome to be, and choose your training accordingly.
However long you've been practising yoga you'll gain knowledge about yoga and skills that you can apply to your yoga practice and teaching from day 1. Apply these and your yoga practice will transform.
You'll learn important guiding principles for being both a powerful yoga teacher and human being. You'll be amazed at the profound difference these simple guidelines will make - in every aspect of your life.
You'll be stunned how quickly you build deep connections and feel accepted for who you are. You'll build friendships for life and feel truly part of something awesome.
Get what you want. Don't waste time or money.
