100 Hour Yoga Immersion
with Janet Richards and Emma Vasquez

Friday 23rd August to Sunday 1st September 2019 (inclusive)

Have you ever wanted to find out more about Yoga? Wanted to deepen your understanding of anatomy and yogic philosophy? Take some time out to immerse yourself in Yoga with no distraction? Thought about developing your Yoga practice? If so this 100 hour immersion is for you.

Our teacher training course is a partnership between our studio owner Janet Richards and our Ashtanga Programme Director Emma Vasquez.

This course is focussed on the functional aspects of Hatha Yoga and the fact that we are all different physically and emotionally is at the heart of our teachings.

We structure our programme so that you will understand this concept anatomically and break down the fundamental poses so that you will understand the intention of each pose, how to pay attention to what is happening, and how to make adjustments according to what stops you.

You will receive a comprehensive 10 hour anatomy module taught by our anatomy teacher Gail Jefferson where she helps you to connect the body with the pose.

Additionally we provide you with a 20 hour philosophy module that will give you an insight into the ancient yogic texts and show you how to link this into our modern lifestyle. This is taught by Ruth Westoby.

Both Emma and Janet have a friendly, approachable and straight forward style when teaching, with both practical and theoretical aspects of yoga covered in depth and plenty of time for exploration. You will be assured of a full programme which will help you understanding your yoga practice and how to progress safely. However, this immersion is so much more than just asana practice it also includes the 8 limbs of yoga and how to integrate these principles into your daily life.

If you are looking to teach in the future this immersion counts as 100 hours towards a Teacher Training Qualification and you can attend Part 2 of the programme which runs between the 7th September to 17th September 2020 inclusive and qualify as a 200 hour Yoga teacher.

Please note that accommodation and food is not provided.

Course Teachers

Meet our Teacher - Janet Richards

Janet didn’t discover yoga until she was 46 years of age. She was suffering from stress and poor health and turned to yoga as an act of desperation. Slowly she regained her health and control of her life with the help of a regular yoga practice and in 2013 went to India to study with Sonja Appel at Sushumna Yoga. She found this a profound and life changing experience. She has continued her yoga journey training with Bernie Clark, Lucy Crawford Scott, Karen Kirkness Breneman and Josh Summers.

She is the owner of the successful The Yoga Studio, a small boutique yoga studio and she is delighted to be hosting this event in the historic City of Carlisle in Cumbria.

Emma

Meet our Teacher - Emma Vasquez

Emma started her Yoga journey at the Yoga studio Carlisle in 2013 prominently with yin and restorative Yoga.  After a year of delving into this she went to her first ashtanga yoga class, and never looked back. Since then Emma has practiced ashtanga 6 days a week delving deeply into the mind science and therapeutic aspects of ashtanga yoga. Emma is a keen practitioner and extremely passionate about making ashtanga available to all. She has undergone ashtanga yoga therapy training with manju pattabhi jois and is excited to bring together the yang and yin aspect of yoga together with her much loved friend and teacher Janet Richards. Together they bring the full spectrum of yoga together as one.
