Our Syllabus

History and Branches of Yoga– An exploration of the classical traditions and their core philosophies, including Hatha, Tantra and Vinyasa Yoga. Learn about where the roots of yoga first took hold and how it has evolved and branched into where it is now.

Anatomy and Physiology– The anatomy of movement and study of the key body systems. We explore how the body works and apply this important knowledge to safe and effective practice and teaching.

Key Poses of Yoga– Daily study and practice of postures and their alignment, adjustments, energetic and health benefits, modifications and effective teaching cues.

Understanding the Subtle Body – Prana and the Chakra system. Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, what lay beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing Prana; this prime life force and how it moves through the Chakras or energetic centres. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.

The Science of Breath– The breath is our connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha Yoga practice. The breath has a profound influence on our nervous system and a deep effect on life quality, both on and off the Yoga mat. Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to advanced pranayama.

Sequencing & Structuring– You will learn how to use the toolkit offered in the yoga system to create meaningful sequences; a good class is not just anatomically sound but also meaningful on more subtle levels. We will explore a variety of class structures and sequences to give you a solid foundation with which to work from with students of differing abilities and needs.

Meditation and the Mind– Understanding our own mind and its make up is an important part of being a guide in any practice. The power of meditation is significant. We will study and practice proven core techniques that are aimed at the development of our own personal meditation practice and being able to hold space whilst teaching.

Introduction to Ayurveda– A fascinating and practical science of life from ancient India, which offers tools to better understand ourselves and others therapeutically through the context of the doshas, gunas and prana.

Effective Teaching skills– The necessary skills to confidently lead a yoga class is obviously an important part of taking a teacher training course. There will be plenty of practice teaching: one on one, in small groups, and in front of the whole class, coupled with the art and science of teaching and presenting.

Chanting and Kirtan– Two evenings a week we get together and share the magic of Mantra Chanting. Exploring the transformative quality of these sacred sounds, and also just having a good old heart-opening singalong!

Business and Marketing in Yoga– Yoga has become a bustling market for teachers and students alike, there are a number of ways you can stand out from the crowd and jump start your teaching career. We’ll show you how.

The Yoga Alliance RYT-200 Certificate will be awarded on completion of all course requirements. This certification is recognized world-wide and is all you need to start teaching immediately. A detailed training manual is also included, to support you on your journey into teaching.
