4Beat 50hr Teacher Training
27th – 31st August
£795 (£755 Early Bird until May 31st)


A 50hr immersion into 4Beat: the dynamic vinyasa flow born out of the Rocket Yoga system in which the core of the practice is the alignment of the breath to the slow, regular beat of the music.

Course Content

Join 4Beat creator Marcus Veda for this five-day, 50-hour teacher training. Born out of the Rocket Yoga system, 4Beat is a dynamic vinyasa flow style that is rapidly becoming one of the most popular styles of yoga in London. The core of the practice is the alignment of the breath to the slow, regular beat of the music.


On this course we look into the philosophy and methodology of teaching and practising to the beat. We will delve further into traditional pranayama breathing practices and the neuroscience of where breath, music and yoga intersect.


Focussing on the backarch branch (🧊) of the 4Beat sequence learn how to safely and calmly orient spinal extension poses, on your back, on your front, standing and upside down, from the perspective of both the practitioner and the teacher.


Maintain your cool in the poses that many people find the most challenging, and improve your own understanding and experience of the key poses from the basic to the difficult through active manual assisting.


It doesn’t matter if you are a teacher or not. This TT is for people who might have completed a 200-hour training of any style of yoga or for any experienced practitioner who wants to go deeper into the connection of the beat and the breath. Attendance to part 1 (🔥) is not required and they can be taken in any order.

Learning Outcomes

On this 50hr TT you will learn:

  • Effective techniques for teaching to the beat and how to incorporate this into any sequence/style of yoga you teach.
  • How to make the standard sequences work For beginners to frequent flyers, injuries, all abilities, ages and levels of experience. Choose how “up” or “down” a class without changing the sequence.
  • How to “hold it down” when the energetic level of the practice ramps up, maintaining balance of the nervous system.
  • How the beat can be used to regulate the pace and rhythm of your teaching and create smoother transitions between poses in your practice.
  • Counting, cueing, & aligning the voice with the rhythm of the music.
  • How to work backbend inversions, hand balances and trickier transitions into your own practice and how to teach them to your students.
