We have all had teachers who inspire us. The TYA believes that such teachers have themselves been taught well. The TYA Teachers Training Course is organised as an apprenticeship programme. This means that in addition to group learning there is personal contact between student-teachers and their Tutor.We also regularly run shorter Courses and Workshops for continuing professional development, offering CPD points.
Modern living places great emphasis on creative AND safe practice in our Yoga classes. The 4 modules of this Teachers Training Course take that into account :
|Anatomy and Physiology||Emphasis is placed on the mechanics of movement in relation to asana, pranayama and vinyasa. First Aid training is also provided as part of the Course.|
|Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyanam||You will learn how to teach all aspects of Yoga ~ from postures through to breathwork, the ethics of Yoga, mindfulness, relaxation, and meditation. You will also learn how to offer alternatives to students when these are appropriate to their needs.|
|Learning to Teach Adults||You will learn different teaching methods and how to encourage students to explore their limits creatively. You will also be fully informed about the current Health and Safety laws appropriate to the learning environment. Upon graduation you will be qualified to join REPS (the Register of Exercise Professionals) and IYN (the Independent Yoga Network). Our Teachers Training Course is also accredited by the Yoga Alliance in the USA.|
|History and Philosophy||You will learn how to integrate and convey to your students the philosophy you will have learned on the Foundation Course.|
This is a comprehensive programme fulfilling a total of 500 hours of study and practice that will give participants a sound base of knowledge and experience from which to teach. Under its apprenticeship system students can set their own pace for learning. The development of students' practical skills will be guided by their Tutor, and in order to build both the competence and the confidence to teach, student-teachers will be given abundant opportunities for practice-teaching before they graduate.
Tutors are based in Berkshire, mid-Wales and Wiltshire.
