Deepen your practise and expand your knowledge of yoga, develop mindful movement. This course involves 60 hours of experiential study. Learn about the eight limbs of yoga, the history of yoga, philosophy, chakras, and types of yoga.
Requirement: Two years' experience with a quality-assured practitioner (BWY or other valid training). Places are selective and limited. With last years course was more than fully booked, 2019s students can expect to join a dedicated and diverse group.
This is not a teacher training course but it will provide the basics and serve as an introduction to BWY diploma (although not a compulsory prerequisite this foundation course is useful preparation for those wishing to train to become a BWY Yoga Teacher). It will also be complementary to other yoga training courses such as 200 hours or 500 hours Yoga Alliance.
The course includes practical and theoretical work on the eight limbs of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras including asana, pranayama, concentration techniques, and meditation, as well as topics such as the history of Yoga and the different paths and schools of yoga. The core syllabus includes:
Preparation for practice
Mudra (sealing gestures)
Basic breathing
Kriya (cleansing practices)
Pranayama (breath control)
Concentration techniques
Relaxation techniques
Talks & discussion on the contexts and meaning of yoga
Minimum of 2 years experienced with a yoga teacher (reference required) You must also be willing to regularly attend (minimum of 80% attendance is required to get the BWY Foundation certificate) and you will be expected to do some reading and research during the course.
