Yoga Teacher Training – Devon Cornwall Somerset Dorset
Become a Yoga Teacher (YMCA Level 3 Practitioner)
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!
Yoga Course Qualification – Explained
There are several parts to this Level 3 Yoga Practitioner qualification, explained briefly below.
- Level 3 Anatomy & Physiology Multiple Choice Exam
- 3 Online Question Worksheets
- 2 Written Question Worksheets
- Self Practice Journal (60 hrs)
- Philosophy and Fundamentals of Yoga
- Programming a Yoga Teaching Session
- Delivering a Yoga Group Teaching Session.
A thorough understanding of all of these topics is necessary to be a good Yoga Teacher, but not a necessity as many of these subjects will be broken down during the course.
Before you attend the training studio for your practical days, you’ll start your distance learning where you will be able to start studying for the Level 3 Multiple Choice Exam, which is held on the FIRST day at the studio. Once you have registered you will receive all your YMCA manuals for your distance learning. A thorough knowledge of the Anatomy and Physiology will also provide you with a fantastic foundation for your practical study.
Including personal practice, self-study and 11 contact days with us at the studio, this course will be comprised of around 370 hours.
We are super super excited to be able to invite you to our new learning platform! We have created over 9hrs of Anatomy videos to help your understanding of the body in relation to Yoga so that you can look after your clients better!
We have also created a tutorial video for each Asana that YMCA requires us to teach AND we have also included over 33 EXTRA Asana tutorials to give you a wider variety of asana to teach. These tutorials are demonstrated by our very own studio clients so that you can see REAL people with REAL issues performing the poses and how you can modify and adapt poses to suit their bodies!
Each asana comes with a video tutorial and a PDF, which has also added to our workbooks, HOWEVER… my favourite part….
You will each be receiving a printed version of our beautiful books! We have spent hours creating these books JUST for teachers!
