If you are interested in studying to be a yoga teacher and looking for a 3 week intensive, then look no further than our teacher training programme at The Yoga Studio, a dedicated boutique yoga haven located in the heart of the historic City of Carlisle.
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 Yoga Teacher Training Programme.
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 then be in a position to provide guidance to others using the same formula.
You will receive a comprehensive 20 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.
There is the opportunity to practice your teaching skills on real clients at the studio so you can get some excellent teaching practice in a safe environment to fully prepare you for the future.
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 ensure that you have all of the tools necessary to progress to teaching yoga upon completion.
The minimum number of contact hours with the lead teacher during a Yoga Teacher Training Course is 65 hours in order to meet industry standards with Yoga Alliance. However, we believe that direct contact with the lead teacher(s) is vitally important and in our course you will spend over 145 hours being trained personally by Janet and Emma. In addition you will receive 20 hours face to face tuition in both the anatomy and philosophy modules being taught by our subject matter experts. There are only 15 non-contact hours in our programme and these are spent prior to your attendance on this training programme in order to ensure that you are as prepared for this course as you can be.
This makes our training one of the most comprehensive available.
