2021 Sangyé Yoga School: Awakening Student Teacher Training
with cat alip-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 5 months program. The training is suitable for those who are looking to transition into the role of a teacher, as well as those who may wish to simply deepen their own yoga & 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 principals with a strong emphasis on vinyasa. Trainees are expected to maintain a daily meditation and a consistent (5-6 days a week) 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 3-4x 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 (how to approach teaching in person classes and virtual/online)
– Ethics based on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva
The course will run over a period of 5 months, beginning June 23rd & ending October 31st.
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 5th -8th - which will be held at Samye Ling, Eskdalemuir, near Langholm, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
Sangyé Yoga School will endeavour to deliver all modules in person; however, there is the possibility that a portion of the course will be held digitally if local guidelines require this. Allowances will also be made for students who are unable to travel for modules based on any local government guidelines.
