Our approach to Yoga is based on the world-renowned teachings from the tradition and lineage of T Krishnamacharya (often described as the ‘father of modern yoga’) and his son TKV Desikachar.
The focus is on integrating all aspects of yogic practice including asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudras, philosophy and psychology, and adapting all practices to the individual. The emphasis is on applying the ancient wisdom and practices of yoga to the challenges of modern lives.
As Krishnamacharya said: “Yoga must be made to suit the individual, not the individual to suit the yoga.”
To gain certification and registration as a Yoga Teacher, a variety of assessments are required. These include demonstration of knowledge, competencies and skills relevant to each course unit; commitment to regular personal Yoga practice; and competence in skills required as a Yoga Teacher.
Minimum of 80% attendance is required for completion of all courses. In special circumstances, alternative arrangements may be made with the course director to meet the requirements of the course. For those who wish to participate in a course for their own personal development and experience of Yoga, and do not wish to be certified as Yoga Teachers, no formal assessments are required.
Completion of this course gives you eligibility for a range of further post-graduate training including our Yoga Therapy Training course, and other continuing education and post-graduate training courses
