Yoga Teacher Training
Yoga is a spiritual tradition of self-realisation that originated in India and has been practiced for centuries. A 200 hour or diploma course will give you the basic building blocks for teaching an asana (posture) focused class. More importantly, the course should ignite your curiosity to deepen your personal practice and learning. Yoga is experiential. The best yoga teachers (not always the most well known), are the ones who teach from personal experience and understanding, which continues to evolve over a life time.
The Train 108 yoga teacher training is movement focused. We do that for a reason. It’s what brings the majority of people to a yoga class. Our job is to make you a competent and confident teacher with a solid foundation in movement and anatomy so that people keep coming back to your class. Then through your unique teaching voice you can introduce more elements of yoga.
The diploma in teaching yoga is delivered by senior teachers and specialists who have a wide range of movement and body therapy experience. The training is delivered in partnership with akarmalife studios where you get access to a variety of teaching and yoga styles plus actual teaching experience of real, live classes.
The anatomy and asana focus isn’t to the exclusion of the other ‘limbs’ of yoga. The course also covers an introduction to the philosophy of yoga, meditation and pranayama so that you feel comfortable incorporating them into a class in a way that is accessible and meaningful. The main text for the course is the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (The Eight Limbs of Yoga) and we’ll look at its place in the cosmology of Indian philosophy and how this pertains to a modern yoga practice.
We feel it is essential and respectful to honour the cultural origins of yoga. We welcome current conversations of inclusion and cultural awareness and encourage self-reflection and open conversations. It is possible for yoga to be movement focused and remain a practice for self-realisation.
