Self Study

Self study is an essential part of the course. keeping a practice journal, reading and submitting assignments prior to each weekend you attend is an integral part of your learning and development.

At least 1 full day a month should be set aside for completing your written assignments. You will be set work prior to your functional anatomy days and asked to write up teaching practice as well as reflections on reading, practice and philosophy.

We encourage you to ask questions and make notes on your reading and bring them to your training weekends so we can discuss them over lunch.  We offer an excellent reading list. This year is really for you to immerse yourself in the study and practise of yoga.

Assisting and Adjusting

Alongside the core course students are requested to do 10 hours observing of classes taught by a Yoga Alliance registered teacher who has been teaching for at least 2 years. You can observe classes in any style of Yoga, preferably a mixed level class or beginners. A log of hours must be kept and signed by the teacher you observe.

Once observation hours are completed and you are past your 4th Weekend of study you will be asked to then start assisting a Yoga Alliance registered teacher. This can be at our studio or a studio nearer to home. A log of hours must be kept and signed by the teacher you assist.

What our students say…

I’ve learnt so much!

“…how to teach yoga effectively, and safely and to different people as well as an immense amount about the wider yoga practice… I never imagined the personal and physical change that I would discover and learn on this course, the dedication that I would practice and the passion I feel for teaching from my learning on the course. Through the combination of homework assignments, observations, assists, teaching practice and workshops. To quote from a book on our reading list; “the more I learned, the more I changed my mind, until, finally, clarity emerged” ( Erich Schiffmann)”

Kate

An incredible journey

“My friend asked me the other day how I’m so ready to get going and I said it’s because I chose this course. It’s given me the practical and functional skills that are needed in the ever developing and now competitive yoga world. This course has been an incredible journey that has offered me a fortune of knowledge and experience. As students we have been pushed and driven to achieve brilliant results. We have had the opportunity to explore yoga through various lenses and have broadened our knowledge and perceptions of the practice. I feel ready to teach and that is rewarding.”

Georgie

Much needed confidence boost!

” I found the course really engaging as I was able to experiment with my creative side and develop some sequences of my own. Some worked, some didn’t! But being able to put these ideas forward and then teach a sequence which I felt was built with intention and purpose gave my confidence a much needed boost”
