Yoga Classes in The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire

Teacher Training

Six Month Modular Foundation Course
in
Yoga Therapy 

This foundation course is part of The British Wheel of Yoga CPD teacher training resources but is also open to qualified yoga teachers who have completed 200 hours training courses.  The aim of the course is to help yoga teachers build their confidence in delivering safe, thoughtful and creative Yoga Therapy (YT) practises for a variety of chronic health conditions. The essence of most learnt practises will be focused on helping people to ease discomfort, pain and the stress associated with their condition through a variety of breathing practises, deep relaxations, meditations, gentle, soothing yoga movements and where appropriate, held asanas.  There will be plenty of opportunity to explore the value of mudras, pranayama, chanting and other more traditional practises. 

Teachers will be encouraged to teach from the heart with emphasis placed on being with the felt experience of the practises and less on doing the practises.  Assessments through case studies are an active part of learning and each case is treated on an individual basis, in other words, ‘no one cure fits all’.
