What does the course cover?
Our course covers applied history of yoga, anatomy and physiology, applied philosophy, teaching methodology, asana, pranayama, mantra, yoga nidra, meditation and the business of yoga.
How long is the course?
The course runs for 12 months and is held one weekend a month. As experienced teachers we firmly believe that your personal teacher training journey is as important as the certificate at the end.
By running our course over 12 months you have the chance to process the information, practice amongst your peers and friends and then come back and ask questions and refine your understanding. Intensive courses, we feel, bombard you with information with little time to reflect and consider.
Our course will give you the tools to be a considered and intelligent teacher, which, we believe, is a process that can’t be rushed.
Who is it accredited by?
It is accredited by Yoga Alliance USA which means this qualification is internationally recognised. We deliver all aspect of the course to their high standards and over deliver in anatomy because we think it is crucial part of being a teacher.
Where is it held?
In our fully equipped Fitzrovia studio, in central London, near Goodge Street tube station.
How many people on the course?
The course is limited to a maximum of 20 students, so that you get full attention during the course. We will also allocate experienced teachers as mentors where you can top up your knowledge and practice with a private session.
What are the course requirements?
A 2 year yoga practice is preferred but we are looking for committed students who have a consistent practice. Please check in as we will review it on a case by case basis.
We ask for 2 references and you should have the time and the focus to commit to this intensive 1 year teacher training. There will be assessed homework and course projects throughout the year, allow approximately 5 hours of homework per month as well as final exams and teaching assessments.
I can’t do all of the yoga poses, can I apply?
That’s no problem at all, you should have a consistent practice of 2 years and understand the names and how to get into the common yoga poses. This course is all about teaching you to adapt poses for you and how to teach the different bodies that will come to your classes. We encourage the use of props and are hot on safe strategies that will help move you in the direction of the bigger poses.
