200 hour Yoga Teacher Training - Sussex
WE ARE NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR OUR NEXT COURSE, STARTING AUTUMN 2018!
Fully accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals, the course will comprise of study weekends spread out over 9 months. With the help of guest tutors who are specialists in their fields, Nathalie's warm guidance and in-depth knowledge will equip you with the skills and experience to become a confident professional yoga teacher.
About the course: Drawing from the roots of yoga, we bring this into a modern day context with our down to earth approach. However we do not try to re-create or re-brand what simply is - there is no gimmicky name or new spin on something that has been practiced for centuries! With a background in teaching as well as yoga, Nathalie has a clear way of helping students to develop their understanding and experience through practical learning, sharing her passion for the subject. We teach with an awareness of the body from a physical perspective and an emotional one, acknowledging that the two are linked. Through an understanding of the 8 limbs of yoga and importantly the Yamas and Niyamas, we hope that your practice and experience of yoga will deepen throughout the course, recognising that it goes far beyond the physical practice.
Our teacher training course focuses on teaching Hatha and Vinyasa Flow yoga whilst also gaining an understanding of the different styles of Yoga from Ashtanga to Yin. You will be encouraged to develop your own teaching voice, learning how to create classes that are focused and balanced.
Areas of study:
- Asana and their benefits physically and emotionally, alignment, teaching technique and verbal cues, adjustments, modifications and contra-indications, sanksrit names.
- Planning lessons: sequencing and flow of a class, teaching different levels and helping students to progress
