Our Yoga Alliance certified course comprises of four 50 hour modules focusing on various key aspects:
– asana practice
– yoga anatomy
– fascia research
– yoga philosophy
– chakra & meridian theory
– teaching methods
We will share ancient yogic knowledge combined with the most recent scientific research.
Your journey with us will begin on the physical level with asana practice and anatomy (modules I + II). We teach you the foundation of hatha yoga’s profound passive practice – Yin Yoga. This comprehensive asana and anatomy course, together with our simple and highly effective analysing system will give you all the skills necessary to be a highly qualified, professional and confident yoga instructor for teaching both yin and yang style yoga classes.
In modules III & IV your yoga journey with us will take a turn, as we focus our attention on meditation and energy practice. You will not only gain theoretical knowledge of chakra and meridian work, but our goal is to teach you how to feel and direct the subtle sensations of chi flow so you can teach others from a place of experience. On being able to refine your practice, your knowledge will go beyond the theory and your teaching will come from a place of authenticity.
Our teaching will be from the heart, rather than the head.
As we complete our time together, we enter the world of yoga philosophy. You will encounter the depth of yoga practice and the goal of yoga.
We believe the most effective way to learn is with joy and trust, and therefore it is important to us to create an atmosphere of lightness, fun and community. In saying that, we also have times of deep intense studying while creating a nurturing and safe environment to allow you to fully experience the intense mental, emotional and physical affects of this profound practice.
On completion of the course:
As a new teacher you will not only have a strong foundation to teach yin yoga, you will have an excellent understanding of yoga anatomy from a functional perspective with respect for your students individual and unique bodies. You will have all the tools you need to confidently embark on your yoga teaching journey – where you were learn the most – having your own experiences and making your own decisions.
As an experienced yoga teacher you have the advantage of your previous experience and knowledge! You will be ready to take in new knowledge at a deeper level. You will also be more discerning regarding what feels right for you and from there you may choose to discard or update certain information. In doing so, you will refine your teaching and it will become more complete.
This training is suitable for experienced and aspiring yoga teachers and students alike who wish to enhance their knowledge of yin yoga – the quiet practice – and discover the anatomical and energetic theories of yin yoga for their own personal practice and/or with the intention to teach.
* Please note – modules may be booked individually and completed in consecutive order at the student’s own pace.
