Hatha Yoga Course Information
Yoga is such a huge subject and is an ongoing learning process. Think of when you first passed your driving test. The learning really started after you passed and started to get more experience on the road.
As we run our own successful Pilates & Yoga studio and we work with clients on a daily basis, we feel very passionate about helping new teacher to be FANTASTIC teachers. This means knowing how to look after your clients, how to keep your classes interesting and most importantly how to ensure your classes are INCLUSIVE and ACCESSIBLE to all your clients.
The course covers a wide variety of subjects within yoga and the health and fitness industry. This course requires quite a bit of self-study, which is what Yoga is. The study of self. Whilst we cover philosophy etc in the course we aim to spend as much of your practical time teaching you asanas and teaching you teaching skills so that you know HOW to teach and HOW to teach SAFELY!
We take pride in our standard of delivery our studio only takes a maximum of 10 students at a time so that we can offer you all individual attention throughout the course!
