If you are at the stage where you wish to develop your own practice, learn more about yoga and all its aspects, but are not ready or do not wish to become a certified yoga teacher yet then this course is also for you. We understand it can be difficult to find the time to learn and practice all the elements of yoga, so this is an opportunity to do so without becoming a yoga teacher.
If this is you, we do recommend you to have practiced any style of yoga for at least six months, as this will make it easier for you to develop a regular asana, pranayama, and meditation practice. You will be able to follow exactly the same schedule as those who are choosing to become certified, without the necessity to complete the final test paper and the student teaching labs.
To teach yoga authentically, you do require a minimum of 200 hours, in order to gain appropriate insurance. Therefore, although yoga teaching is not officially regulated, it is wise to gain this base number of hours before undergoing teaching (unless it is for friends, family and others that understand your experience and teaching certificate hours).
During this intensive course, you will practice two hours twice a day Yinyang, Yin yoga and Restorative Yoga. Do not worry if you have health mis-alignments or injuries, please just let us know. Yin yoga and restorative are particularly healing for the body.
Final assessment – you will have the opportunity of practical teaching assignments. This is not compulsory but will be offered to you within the safe and supportive teacher training group, to enable confidence in teaching to be gained.
During the last day you will have practical teaching assignments to support the learning process.
