BWY Foundation Courses


British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Courses

There are no more Foundation courses scheduled for this year. The next course is planned for Autumn 2021. Please visit www.bwy.org.uk for other BWY Foundation courses on offer.


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.



British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course 1 Certificate of Attendance.



  1. Minimum of two years’ class attendance with a suitably qualified and experienced yoga teacher.
  2. Students must join the British Wheel of Yoga if not already a member (see below).


Course dates: Next course planned for Sept 2020 in Brighton




10.00-17.00 with a shared food break around 1.00pm





Practice diary


Students are required to practise regularly throughout the course and are encouraged to reflect upon and make notes on their practice in journal form.  Other than this there is no home written work and the course is not formally assessed.



Course fees will be £600. There is a non-refundable deposit of £100 payable on acceptance to the course. The remaining fees need to be paid at least a month before the start date of the course.


All students must become members of the BWY (cost £37). Membership must be via BWY Central Office or website. Please click here to join www.bwy.org.uk




You are required to attend 80% of the course which means you must attend at least 8 out of 10 sessions. Please note certificates cannot be awarded for attendance for fewer than 8 of the 10 sessions and the BWY is very strict about this.

The Course includes:

Philosophy of Yoga

History of Yoga

Asana and Pranayama

Mudra and Bandha


Shatkarmas (Cleansing techniques)




Chakras and Nadis

Here is some feedback from past students:

“A wide range of information about many disciplines of Yoga. The openness of the teacher encouraged us as students to retain openness too. A great opportunity to explore new ideas and perspectives.” Kate 2015

“Great course management i.e. email communication and handouts. Also great to listen to Tarik’s brain!”  Kelly 2015

“It has been a really inspirational course. Tarik’s teaching has been clear and concise in both the asana work and theory. It has really helped me understand so much more than I could have got from the books alone. It has brought my Yoga practice to life!”  Steve 2015
