This course is different because it over delivers the 200hr criteria set by Yoga Alliance US. This course teaches you to the standards of a more advanced course, we deliver the latest teachings based on current research and thinking. We also teach you to question, to be curious and to find your own authentic voice. This course empowers you to teach with confidence.
In order to have longevity in this business, we believe that you need the tools to think on your feet when you are teaching so that you stand out from the one-pose-fits-all approach. We teach you applied anatomy that empowers you to teach different bodies with confidence, we teach you the function of the pose and from that you can make intelligent decisions of how you prepare and adapt poses to make your teaching accessible to all. Being able to cultivate awareness in your students will make for compelling classes that will make them come back again and again.

On the course you will prepare your own Beginners Yoga course so that you can this up as soon as you leave as well as giving you a lot of experience in preparing and planning your own intelligently and creatively sequenced classes. We will teach you how to successfully audition for studios and also give you insider marketing tips on how to find your authentic voice and how to identify your niche market.
How long is the course?
The course is held one weekend a month over 12 months. This allows you the time to develop your own practice and to develop your teaching. It also gives you the time to process the information and then come back on the next weekend to ask questions which will help you to refine your understanding.
The duration of the 12 months means you will form long standing relationships with your teachers and fellow students. It takes time to become an informed and nurturing yoga teacher, so if you value the journey as much as the certificate at the end, this is the course for you.
