This is one of my favourite courses because it provides a basis for going deeper into Yoga practice without any pressure. It is a 60-hour course running over 6 months on Saturdays and covers a wide range of topics relating to Yoga Philosophy and practice.
Who it is for:
The Foundation Course 1 is run nationally (in England, Scotland and Wales) and is suitable for anyone who wishes to develop their personal practice of yoga and widen their experience. It provides a comprehensive grounding in basic practical techniques taught in the context of the philosophy that underpins Yoga. It is an ideal preparation for those who may wish to train as yoga teachers in the future* but equally suitable for yoga students who do not wish to teach.
