  • Study the Patanjali Yoga Sutras and learn how to incorporate them into your daily practice and life
  • Learn how to structure a class and then incorporate all these components into designing your own class.
  • Learn to teach this class to your peers in a small group environment and then you will teach this class to your peers as your assessment

Asanas (Led & Mysore Style) and Anatomy/Alignment

The program offers a strong foundation in Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow. Concentrating on the correct alignment of the postures that make up the Primary Series with a focus on offering modifications to suit practitioners of all levels and abilities.

In addition to learning proper alignment for each posture in the Primary Series, you will also focus on how to modify your own practice as well as your students, when needed.  You will learn how to identify when these modifications are needed and as well as preparation techniques to help improve the practice both for yourself and your students.

These classes are delivered by one of our Senior Teachers and supported by several of our Assistant Teachers to ensure that each individual receives attention throughout the class.

The aim is that you build on prior knowledge of anatomy, whatever level that may be, and leave with a greater awareness of your own body. During these classes, you will also focus on how to modify your own practice (if needed) identifying your weaknesses. The teachers will help you identify such areas and give you preparation techniques. During week two, you will be ready to begin practicing by yourself; Mysore-style classes. The teacher will no longer lead the class, you will complete the series, together with your peers, with your own breath count and in your own time. You will be supported by your Senior teacher and assistant teachers who will check alignment, help you deepen the posture and adjust you if available. Self practice is a great way for your teachers to help you personalise your development.

Pranayama – (Breathing Techniques)

From the first moment you step onto your mat, you will be encouraged to bring awareness to your breath. In Ashtanga, the ujjayi breath initiates the movement from one posture to the next. You will learn to use the rhythm of this breath to progress through your practice. In addition, you will also learn 4 further Pranayama techniques that will help you clear your mind, improve your lung capacity plus a range of other mental and physical benefits. This is an important aspect of yoga that is often overlooked, but should always follow a physical practice. Tutorials will explain the theory accompanying these breathing techniques, enabling you to practice effectively during guided classes. During these classes, you will also cover Kriyas (cleansing) and Mudras (energy seals).

Teaching Methodology

You will start to teach your peers during the first week of your training. You will instruct each other on a one-on-one basis by breaking down the fundamentals of a yoga class, from here you will progress to writing and delivering your own class. Each session, there will be tools provided for you to develop your teaching skills, facilitating you to build your own yoga class that you will deliver during the final week. The teaching methodology sessions include: opening a class, sequencing, instructions, relaxation techniques, corrections and adjustments, modifications. Students always find this a particularly memorable experience as the majority of them will teach for the first time. Participating in each others classes and providing constructive feedback for your peers is a great way to learn and this supports the ethos that learning is sharing.

Yoga Philosophy

Classical yoga philosophy is interwoven throughout the program and you will be introduced to Patanjalis yoga sutras, allowing you to make your own comparisons of classical and contemporary yoga, posing the question: What is yoga? These sessions are a great time for philosophical debates and indeed provide a welcome insight into the views of your fellow students. Each yoga class will have a spiritual message that will allow you to understand how you can incorporate philosophy into practice. Hari Krishna will deliver a talk on yoga in Gita, a beloved Indian text from which many lessons can be learned.
