British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Training starts April 2013
I am delighted that you are intereted in becoming a Yoga teacher and spread the message of Yoga into your community. It has truly changed my life for the better and I am confident that the Yoga you learn from me will have the same impact on your students.
The course I am offering will run for approximately two years and will cover the BWY official syllabus that is included in the student pack. There is now a new syllabus that brings the qualification in line with National Standards at Level 4.
You will see from my work that I am also an Ayurvedic practitioner and heavily inspired by the teachings of Swami Satyananda (Bihar school of Yoga) so there will be a strong emphasis on Ayurvedic philosophy and tantric philosophy and practice.
You will also see however that I have a very broad experience of Yoga including Sivananda, Iyengar and am currently working with Gary Carter who teaches Scaravelli Yoga. Too many influences? I find greater clarity as I experience a broad range of techniques not less. I believe in the alignment and technical precision of Iyengar, the naturalness of Scaravelli, the subtle meditative approach of Satyananda and the individualised approach of Ayurveda. There is no conflict or confusion.
My aim is really however to help you develop your own relationship with Yoga that is authentic and impart that knowledge to your students.
If you are interested in Ayurveda and the classical approach to teaching Yoga that includes elements of all the major doctrines of Yoga including Hatha Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Karma Yoga and Raja Yoga then I am the right person to train with.
The next Teacher Training course will be with the new syllabus that ties the qualification to the National Framework which makes it easier to get funding for. I plan to start the next course in MAY 2013. Please join my mailing list if you would like to be kept uptodate on this.
If you are interested in doing thenew BWY training course, it is best to have done a BWY Foundation course or something equivalent first. You will also be required to complete a Foundation course in Anatomy and Physiology for the new syllabus before the start of the course.
For more information, email me for a Student pack. There will be two Introductory days leading up to the course, in February and March 2013.
