21 April – 19 May, 2017
The course will cover both practice and theory, with 3 or 4 hours of practice each day and 2 or 3 hours of theory classes each day. Practice classes will include asana, pranayama, meditation and samyama. There will be one day off each week.
There will be three teachers on the course, including myself, and it will be taught in the English language. The curriculum for this course has been approved by the Yoga Alliance.
The focus of the training will be on qualifying teachers to be able to teach asanas (postures), Spinal Breathing Pranayama and Deep Meditation practice. The course will also cover many other aspects of yoga, from subtle anatomy to advanced pranayama practices and from yoga philosophy to self-inquiry (advaita). The yoga will be full-scope, covering all eight limbs of yoga, as taught by Sri Patanjali.
To enrol for this course you will need to have been practising AYP Yoga or a similar full-scope yoga practice, for at least a year. A full-scope yoga practice, means a practice which includes at least asana (posture) practice, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. If you are not sure if you meet the minimum requirements for training, contact Tristan Dorling.
Upon completion of the course, participants will become qualified as a yoga teacher and will be able to register with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200). Qualifications will be given at the end of the course.
