The Journey from Condé to Sangyé

From the fashion floors of Condé Nast in New York to the wooden floors of Sangyé Yoga School, cat had officially traded in her Manolo Blahniks for a more 'grounded' approach to life
...in bare feet. 

cat is originally from New York City and has been calling London home since spring 2004. She feels very privileged and grateful to have been involved with the previous incarnation of Sangyé Yoga School (Jivamukti Yoga London) since its inception and manifestation in 2005. With sincere love and admiration, she thanks Manizeh and Danny Rimer for always seeing the best in her. She convinced them to give her a “job” to help run the studio but they kindly encouraged her to serve in a greater capacity.

At the end of the day, simply an ordinary yoga teacher who happened to pick up some titles along the way: Advanced Certified (Jivamukti), SYT (Senior Yoga Teacher - Yoga Alliance UK) and Co-Director of SYS alongside her husband Phil.  

LOVE & GRATITUDE: the husband/teacher phil, the parents, the ones who walked this path before, the students & the notorious biggie smalls…lastly, this precious human existence for the potential it holds.

sangyé yoga school
teacher training 2017
with Cat Alip-Douglas

This training is for students who wish to deepen their understanding of the yoga practice 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 practice.

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 at the start of the training, and students will be encouraged to self-practice this sequence. Developing a self-practice, identifying and overcoming challenges are an important step in the student’s ability to teach.

The course will include the following areas of study:

  • Asana, bandha, drishti
  • Applied anatomy
  • Mechanics of fundamental assists
  • Philosophy
  • Meditation
  • Teaching methodology
  • Ethics (yama/niyama)

COURSE SCHEDULE

The course will run over a period of 5 months, beginning June 21st & ending October 29th. Pre-course work provided on/around May 1st as preparation and to be completed for modules.
