Awakening Student Teacher Training (8th edition)
with cat alip-douglas & phil douglas
This training is for students who wish to deepen their understanding of the yoga practice as it relates to life in a closely mentored program taking place over 5 months (June-October). The training is suitable for students who are looking to transition into the role of a teacher, as well as those who may wish to simply deepen their own yoga/yoga as it relates to life practice.
Previous years have attracted students from the UK, Europe, USA and beyond. Out of town students must be able to commit to adding days either side of modules to complete practice requirement with cat. The training has reached capacity each year, advance application is encouraged.
This 200hr (300+hr with independent study required) course presents a foundation in yoga principles with a strong emphasis on vinyasa. Trainees are expected to maintain a daily meditation and a consistent asana practice during their training. A set sequence will be provided almost 2 months prior to the start of the training and students will be expected to self-practice this sequence approximately 3x per week. Developing a self-practice, identifying and overcoming challenges are an important step in the student’s ability to teach and ultimately communicate with precision.
The course will include the following areas of study:
– Asana, bandha, drishti
– Applied anatomy
– Mechanics of fundamental assists
– Teaching methodology
– Ethics based on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva
(it is not necessary to read this in advance of the training)
The course will run over a period of 5 months, beginning June 28 & ending October 29th. Pre-course work will be provided on/around May 1st as preparation and to be completed for modules.
All dates will be held at Sangyé Yoga School, 300 Kensal Rd, London, W10 5BE – with the exception of the dates August 10th -13th - which will be held at Samye Ling, Eskdalemuir, near Langholm, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
