2024 YTT

The course has grown from strength to strength from 2022 and I am so excited for the future of my yoga courses. I want to continually grow and expand the dynamic learning of this YTT,  to certify enthusiastic, gifted teachers who will go out into the world and share their knowledge and love of yoga to all.

The course modules will consist of:

Learning the 8 groups of asana; how to teach, sanskrit, benefits, modification, progressions, contraindications

Pranayama, mudra, kriya, bandha techniques, methods and benefits

Students will learn a variety of chants

Yoga history and philosophy included in sacred yogic texts

Anatomy and physiology of yoga

Sequencing in classes, being a yoga teacher and the business of yoga

Approximately 200 hours of teacher student contact, mentoring throughout and support after qualification

At the end of the course the newly qualified teachers will be able to teach hatha yoga & vinyasa flow yoga classes in creative, fun, safe and practical way. They will be able to use their knowledge of pranayama, mudra, chants and meditation to teach individual classes of any of the above so they have a wide repertoire of yoga class offerings.

They will have the confidence to design their own sequences in asana and be creative in their style of class.
