Four Distinct Modules
This 300 hour training is divided into 4 distinct modules giving you the flexibility to complete the training in your own time. Modules can be completed whenever suits you, and not necessarily within a 12 month period:
- Module 1 – Deeper anatomy and therapeutic applications of Yoga – The science . Includes practical work and a research project.
- Module 2 – Finding your next level as a teacher. Advanced teaching methods including adjustments, sequencing, voice work and ‘reading’ clients.
- Module 3 – Yoga for Sports – Specific yoga applications for performance, recovery, functional movement, injuries, including breathing, visualisation and meditation for psychological strength. A framework to apply yoga to all kinds of sport. Includes practical work and a research project.
- Module 4 – Origins and Traditions of Yoga – Indian Retreat – The subtle side of Yoga and the ‘culture’ practiced in Indian Himalaya, is often a ‘missing link’ in the west. This module focusses on deeper Pranayama, meditation and exploration of philosophy.
