I am delighted to offer a YTTC in Liverpool
200 hrs in Ashtanga Yoga and Yoga Anatomy
This is an amazing opportunity to get certified in 2020. Peeps, there is still time and I believe it could be a great way to end what has been a rollercoaster of a year. The course is aimed at those of you who have a steady yoga practice and would like to take your first step towards becoming a yoga teacher. It is also a great way to connect with practice and delve deeper into the finer details of yoga, even if you do not want to be a yoga teacher. The course is non-residential and will run for 2 intensive weeks followed by 2 weekends, a week of early morning practice and some online stuff. It promises to be an exciting and enjoyable journey here in Liverpool’s city centre. It is registered and compliant with Yoga Alliance standards. This course will run alongside 50 hrs CPD in Yoga Anatomy.
You should be prepared to be mentally, emotionally and physically challenged for the duration of the course! There is a lot of learning (hello anatomy,) heaps of movement (hello muscles,) and a fair bit of challenging your inner dialogue (hello emotions;) all in a super productive way with little me to support you all the way!
Liverpool TTC Curriculum
I am passionate about teaching 200 hrs in Ashtanga Yoga as I believe that it provides the foundations that you need to be a great Vinyasa Flow teacher. I’ve taken a holistic approach to my curriculum in that all modules are interlinked and connected: the physical supports the spiritual, the spiritual content supports the physical. While the course is physically demanding with a huge focus on Western anatomy, the course is undoubtedly geared towards being truly yogi in the complex world that we live in, a concept that is close to my heart and will be explored in detail. As a former high school teacher, I know that we all learn in different ways. Concepts will be presented as theories, though exploration and most importantly through practice. You have my word that you will graduate with sooooo much knowledge.
The core curriculum is taught in terms of Yoga Practice, Yoga Anatomy & Physiology, Yoga Humanities and Professional Essentials. The course will include the following modules:
Led Ashtanga Yoga, Full Primary Series
An intro to Meditation
Rocket Yoga 1 & 2
To understand the yoga anatomy associated with the postures of Ashtanga Yoga, knowing how to overcome physical limitations to develop and intelligent and personal practice. This will include:
- Origin and insertion to determine muscle functionality
- Movement of the hip, shoulder, spine and knee joints
- Shoulder and hip stability
- Posture analysis in detail
- Common injury prevention
The pedagogy of teaching yoga including:
Building a yoga class commentary to provide accurate cuing and effective reminders
How to teach a modified class to cope with different abilities in a class
Simple sequencing for a Vinyasa Flow Class
Use of voice
The role of the modern yoga teacher
Workshops will include Inversions, Backbending, The Perfect Chaturanga, Happy Hips and Journey to Handstand.
History and background of Ashtanga Yoga
The 8 Limbs as described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras
Ongoing discussion and debate about how to be a ‘good yogi’ in the modern world that we live in today.
The course will run for 2 intense week during which we will cover the bulk of the theory based curriculum. This is followed by 2 weekends, a week of morning practice and some online stuff. There will also additional time added for supervised study. Ideally, you will need 2 weeks from work/routine and then we will fit the rest around your schedule. There will be a little room for flexibility within the follow on hours.
