Course content

This course explores yoga in more depth than is often possible in a weekly class. The core syllabus includes preparation for practising asana (postures), mudra (Sealing gestures), basic breathing, kriya (cleansing practice), pranayama (Breath control), concentration techniques, relaxation techniques, chanting, talks and discussions on the context and meaning of Yoga. Students are required to practise regularly throughout the course and are encouraged to reflect upon and make notes on their practice in journal form. Other than this there is no home written work and the course is not formally assessed.

This course is intended for students with 2 years of yoga experience who would like to develop their knowledge of yoga further as well as for those wanting to train as teachers as it provides them with a good introduction to our Certificate and Diploma teaching courses.  Students will be awarded the
British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Certificate of Attendance upon completion.
