ABOUT THE TRAINING
This boutique, Yoga Alliance UK certified, 200-hr foundational yoga teacher-training course will give you the tools you need to effectively teach intelligent, well-balanced vinyasa yoga classes. Through daily asana practice, subject-specific lectures, group discussions, and many hours spent practicing teaching, you will become a skillful, authentic, informed yoga teacher. The senior yoga teacher, Becky Farbstein, has a unique background, having trained and worked as a prehistoric archaeologist for more than 15 years before becoming a successful yoga teacher. Her deep understanding and respect for how modern science can help us better understand ancient history guides and informs her approach as a yoga teacher. Anatomy modules will be led by Elodie Frati, a yoga teacher and osteopath in training.
This course covers all the key topics of a foundational yoga teacher training.
Modules topics include:
History of yoga and philosophy
Assisting and adjusting
Pranayama and meditation
The business of yoga.
WHAT TO EXPECT
All students will learn to apply contemporary science, anatomy, sports medicine, and injury management strategies to help them teach smart, safe, physically sustainable asana-based classes that are appropriate for modern practitioners. One homework assignment will focus on injury-management in common injuries for yoga practitioners. Participants will learn how to teach a set sequence, and homework will also teach students to write their own sequences and build a comprehensive teaching curriculum, using a guided methodology for planning classes. All participants will also have an opportunity to teach a public community class at Retreat Studio near the end of the training.
Certification will be based on a two-part examination: practical, in which the trainee teaches a full 60-minute class to other YTT participants with assessors in the room; and written. Participants will also be expected to complete the two homework assignments and do independent reading before and during the course (30 non-contact hours).
