Mindful Yoga Teacher Training
Training to be a yoga teacher will transform and enrich your life. It is a journey of self-discovery, at times intense but always rewarding. During this unique and accredited 200-hour online training course we will lovingly guide you through the life-changing journey of becoming a yoga teacher.
The course will nurture your personal growth as well as your professional development, giving you the skills to teach yoga safely, mindfully and with joy.
Mindful Yoga is a gentle practice that encourages awareness of subtle sensations and acceptance of the body as it is. Mindful Yoga is therefore ideally suited to a live-online training environment, where physical adjustments are not applicable. Instead, students are invited to let go of tension, to let go of the desire to ‘do’ the perfect pose. This way of practicing builds body awareness, interoception and sensitivity so that students can make safe choices about how to proceed in any given pose. This approach gives the student a sense of agency over their own body which in turn has significant psychological benefits.
