Our courses are built upon and improved every year and are comprehensive and wide in their field. They are designed to create a space of personal development and joyousness around hard work and practice.
The work we cover in the first term before the Xmas holidays is very much focused on the Physical Body however we are very much aware that the Emotional Pranic Body, the Mental Body and the Psychic Body of the Wisdom Mind are there always for us as Humans Being and so with a sense our our Spiritual Being, on this course we allow ourselves time to consider these concepts and honour the work of great Masters and Sages as we learn our basics and encourage our growth.
Examinations for these courses are kept to a minimum, however we do have an assessment weekend prior to graduation. We only have small numbers on courses and do so in particular so to be able to keep close contact with the inquiring minds of student teachers along their path. Progress is divided into both personal and professional development and awareness is gauged by continual assessment and encouragement.
There is a requirement for each student to submit a 3000 word essay of an agreed yoga topic of their choice at the end of the course prior to graduation. This gives the student teacher an opportunity to study in depth, a yogic concept that interests them in particular. However it is not a course of show up and get your cert.
It is a strict requirement that all new teachers can perform, practice and teach a variety of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation techniques.
Don’t take our word for it
See what our past students have said about their training with Golden Glow Yoga College
"A great decision"
“Taking part in the teacher training course at Golden Glow was a great decision. Sri Radha Sharon’s knowledge and expertise are second to none, and her empathy and wisdom create a warm and secure space for learning. The course has been of huge benefit to my personal practice and indeed has positively impacted on all aspects of my life. The classes are friendly, supportive and fun. I would tell anyone considering joining the college to grab the opportunity with both hands”.
Edel O’ Donovan -Teacher Training – Vice Principal St Angela’s College Cork
"The fascinating world of Hatha Yoga"
“I cannot believe the amount I have learned this past few months. From learning about the fascinating world of Hatha yoga and practical business skills to learning about life and most interestingly what I have learned about myself. Sharon is an amazing teacher. Caring and passionate and always shares a giggle. I honestly have surprised myself with the knowledge I have retained all thanks to Golden Glow Yoga College. I can move forward with confidence knowing that Sharon is only a call away to help with any questions I may encounter! Beautiful course with some very beautiful people.”
"Meet so many great people"
I always look forward to the month training weekend, which provides a strong anchor and direction support, while being fun, challenging, and nurturing of a strong personal energy. Growing alongside others adds to the depth of the experience.
I feel I have already achieved great personal growth, and developed on many levels, and am loving the opportunity to learn and explore within such a supportive environment.”
"When the time is right you know"
” It is said that the teacher appears when the student is ready. This was indeed the case with me when I found Sri Radha Sharon and Golden Glow Yoga College. In 2013/2014, I studied the 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training Course at Golden Glow Yoga College with Sri Radha.
Sri Radha is a wonderful, insightful and warm teacher whose authentic practice is hugely inspiring and who teaches from the heart, while her knowledge of yoga history, philosophy and sutra is vast and deep.
It was a privilege to study under Sri Radha and also to meet all the other students on the course.”
"Just loving teacher training"
“I am absolutely loving the Teacher Training course at Golden Glow Yoga College.The atmosphere here is very warm, welcoming and friendly. I think this is a very comprehensive course lead by a most professional and extremely supportive teacher Sri Radha Sharon”
”Sharon’s classes are always excellent and she is always welcoming, warm and friendly. She makes everyone feel good, whatever size of class. She is the very best teacher i know”
Mary C Cork
“…wow, was I delighted when Sri Radha appeared in Galway. She is inspirational! Her knowledge is vast and she creates a loving, nurturing space in her shala for you to grow your yoga in a supportive way. Sri Radha is a grand master in hatha and transformational yoga…She also owns her own studio and has been practicing and teaching yoga for years, so has a great breadth of experience. She is very dedicated to her students and makes time to meet up with each student individually, as part of the course…. Sri Radha really gives you wings, so that you can experiment and develop your own unique yogic vibe, without feeling restricted by one lineage or another…It really is a wonderful course and I am looking forward to graduating. I will be very proud to be Golden Glow Yoga College graduate. :-)”
"Personal but not pushy training"
Sri Radha has made the course so personal and yet is never pushy or invasive – she is a true yogi! Radha gently guides you through the course helping you find strength and grace in your yoga both on and off the mat. The year has helped me considerably deepen my practice and given me a well rounded knowledge of all of the yoga realms. It really has been such a gift to have been on this learning journey with Sri Radha and my fellow yogis. I have been truly inspired by Sri Radha and will sincerely miss our treasured yoga weekends when the course ends in another month! “
Sarah Kate McHaugh
“Taking part in the Golden Glow Yoga Teacher Training this past year has been extremely enjoyable and an inspirational experience. I look forward to every training weekend as the atmosphere and vibe of the course is very encouraging.
Sharon makes you feel at ease about the content and flow of movement being learnt and is very supportive about going forward after graduating. You are taught to find your own personal yogic teaching style which is very refreshing! I would recommend this course to anyone interested in yoga whether its going on to teach or to simply have yoga in their life in another discipline.”
