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 10 hour philosophy module with senior yoga teacher Rebecca Shepherd, that will give you an insight into the ancient yogic texts and show you how to link this into our modern lifestyle.
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 19th to 30th August 2021 inclusive and qualify as a 200 hour Yoga teacher.
The studio schedule is becoming very busy now and so to improve the experience for our students we have decided to move the YTT to a separate venue. However, the practice teaching sessions will still be held at the studio.
This course is taking place at Dacre Hall in Lanercost which is about 8 miles north east of Carlisle. It is the oldest village hall in the UK and attached to Lanercost Priory. It is such a peaceful location that this first module, will feel very much like a yoga retreat as we focus on the fundamentals of the programme. If you wish to stay there is plenty of guest accommodation and a popular coffee shop on the door step.
Places are limited to 16.
Please note that accommodation and food is not provided.
