Now you have the opportunity to spend two days with these master teachers. These 2 days will give you a chance to practice on your own body as well as observe and help others. You will begin to understand the reason why we do the poses as well as learning how to help your students make faster progress.

Yoga is a tremendous catalyst for physical, mental and spiritual transformation.

In this training you will learn

– How to observe your students so that you know what they need in order to grow
– How to use poses to feel better physically and emotionally rather than merely attempting to perform them
– How to soften your students hearts and egos enabling them to be more honest and open
– How to use your words and your hands to gently assist them to feel better rather than to just “go further”
– Experience valuable insights about your own body. It is essential for us as yoga teachers to forge our own path skilfully so we can lead others with confidence

This teacher training will consist of 4 hours contact time each day which will give you a total of 8 CPD hours.

Places are limited to just 20.
