On this program you will learn the principles and skills to teach breathing techniques (pranayama), postures (asana) and relaxation (yoga nidra) to individuals and large and small groups. You will become familiar with the anatomy of the body and how it works in yoga. At its heart, this program will uncover why we do yoga. Underpinning it all will be the study of ancient yoga philosophy to enable both teacher and their students to live more soulfully.
The program is very practical in nature. Students will commit to homework and home practice. It is designed to take students on a highly enjoyable and life-affirming journey.

Sound Bath Healing
One full day on the course will focus on Sound Bath Healing. A Sound Bath is an immersion in beautiful sounds and vibrations that are healing for your body, mind and spirit. A Sound Bath is a deeply relaxing, meditative experience which can take you on a journey of deep relaxation, healing and self-discovery. Everything in the Universe, including our body, is composed of vibrations. Every organ and every cell in our body vibrates at a particular frequency. Sound and vibration travels up to five times more effectively through water. As the human body is made up of over 70% water we can understand that sound and vibration can effect us at a cellular level. You will experience the healing power of Tibetan Singing Bowls, Gongs, Shamanic Drums, Koshi chimes and Voice.
This section looks at the approaches of teachers on how to teach their classes ethically.
The module also includes a Teachers in Training class where each student will teach their first full class to our members once you have successfully completed the course. We hope you decide to take this enjoyable yoga journey with us.
