Yoga Like Water:
200 hour Immersive Yoga Teacher Training Course
" The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
― William Arthur Ward
We think of our yoga teacher training as an immersion and believe that it is the most unique 200 hour course in the UK. With no fixed style or system we simply want you to find your inner voice and to teach in a way that is entirely authentic to you.
The course is recognized by the Independent Yoga Network (IYN) who fully embrace all styles of yoga that follow the principles of ahimsa (non harming) and satya (truth) and encourage teachers to teach as they feel is intuitive and authentic for them.All IYN training schools are also recognised by REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals). As a member of the Independent Yoga Network you have access to their group insurance which covers you to teach anywhere in the world (though you may have to pay extra to cover the USA and Canada). Alternatively you can take out insurance through REPS.
We limit the numbers on our course to around 15 students. At times other existing teachers may join for occasional training days, giving you the opportunity to practice on other bodies and draw on experience from outside the group.
The immersion covers the eight limbs of yoga, yet also goes much deeper, incorporating a wide variety of studies and teachers, passionate about their particular field of expertise. From breath to partner work, through to physiology, anatomy and mindfulness meditation our aim is for you to explore yoga for yourself and develop a set of what most people would class as advanced teaching skills, but what we consider to be the fundamental tools of a good teacher or practitioner.
Regardless of whether you choose the residential or year long option. the format is the same:
Self-guided practices and suggested reading between sessions will encourage you to take your own understanding ever deeper; your physical asana, meditation and pranayama will progress quicker than you could ever expect as you start to really feel your yoga practice rather than 'think' it.
