- Pranayama (Breathing Techniques) – There is so much more to the breath than what we realise in our daily life. Prana means vital energy and ayama means to expand – this vital energy is responsible for all life experiences. If we master the breath and use it to control our emotions, responses and nervous system, we can learn to be more in control of our life and relationships. We look at the breath in relation to moving energy in a physical asana practice and in meditation.

Meditation is also an incredibly useful tool to calm the mind in your daily life. We look at how to cultivate a regular meditation practice at home and in your classes.

We study the Meridian system (energy channels) that run through the body and how to use these in structuring a Yin yoga class.
- The Art of Sequencing – You will learn how to deliver a meaningful and well structured yoga class through a variety of elements. We look at the tools of practice including asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), bandha (energy locks), meditation, mudras (gestures) and more.
- The History of Yoga – Learn what yoga means and the philosophy behind it. We will look at The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali and the 8 Limbs of Yoga which outline the steps necessary to achieve yoga. Delve into the Chakra system or energy centres located in the body as well as the physical and emotional layers that surround us.
- How to Live a Yogic Lifestyle – As we move through the philosophies and practices behind the asana, you will gain an insight into how to start leading a healthy, happy and holistic lifestyle according to the steps of yoga. We go beyond the asana (postures) and take knowledge from this ancient science that is still applicable today.
- The Business of Yoga – Now you’re a Certified Yoga Teacher, what next? We look at ways to market your new skills as a teacher in a yoga studio, or to sell your own retreats and yoga holidays. We also discuss the ethics of being a yoga teacher and what to watch out for.
