After a time of practicing yoga most practitioners think about taking a Yoga Teacher Training to deepen their practice and to learn a few things that simply are not covered in regular yoga classes......

If you are not sure about teaching but just want some time to focus on your personal practice, and dip your toe into the teaching experience then module 1 is open to take on its own. 

Please note there is no first aid certificate on this  course & home study is required after the each module .

​What is the course: A registered Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program offering basic 200 hours qualification.

This course is a three part modular course leading to a 200 hour YogaTeaching qualification registered with Yoga Alliance taught by Alison Hawkins & Oskar Nery. In this course you will be looking at Vinyasa style Yoga practices, including meditation and pranayama. You will consider different approaches to practice and teaching helping you to develop your own personal teaching style. You will also be learning about physiology and anatomy in relation to teaching asana, vinyasa and breath work. Keeping your practice style safe for you and those that you choose to teach. Of course there will be a look at the historical, cultural and social aspects of modern Yoga. 

On completion of the three modules you will have knowledge to design classes for beginners in both groups and also one on one private classes. YSBF aims to give you a broad foundation that means as your practice develops further over the years, the skills you have leant will enable you to teach with knowledge, insight and confidence.

A Foundation Course Certificate will be provided to those attending only the first session. Plus any one attending additional sessions will get a certificate indicating hours completed if less than the full course.

All certificates will be issued electronically.
