Becoming a Yoga Teacher is one of the best things I've ever done, I loved every minute of the course and now I get the pleasure of sharing Yoga with you.
I am beyond pleased to be supporting the next cohort of Yoga Teachers at Prana Yoga Studio.
Prana Yoga Studio, in the heart of Hamilton, is honoured to offer a Seasonal Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training (RYT200) qualification accredited by Yoga Alliance International.
This 200 hour course which is designed to help you explore the ancient practice of yoga both on and off the mat. We will support the growth of your understanding of the postures, breath, and anatomy. Just as important, we would like you to learn more about your mind, impulses, relationships, happiness, through the theory of yoga and its application into your every day life.
This level of yoga teacher training is open to you whether you wish to become a yoga teacher, and, or wish to develop your yoga practice within a comprehensive and structured course. It is called Seasonal Yoga because we teach how to harmonise your yoga practice and energy with the seasons, drawing from the Chinese cyclical understanding of nature, to create more of a balance within your life, and to help you realise your own true nature.
Course content: The course includes Yogic philosophy (in particular, Patanjali's yoga sutras), Asanas (postures), Pranayamas (breathing techniques), Kriyas (purification techniques), Mantra, Anatomy and Physiology, Meditation (The Self Enquiry method of Ramana Maharishi), the energy systems of the body, Chi Gung and other traditional energy practices. The practice focuses on the Vinyasa styles of Seasonal Flow and Ashtanga Yoga, although you will also gain experience of yoga for special circumstances, yoga for seniors, kundalini yoga, yin yoga and more. We also cover nutrition, N.L.P., how to run your classes, David Keil's anatomy course and much, much more.
The course leader in Hamilton is Carla Webster, E-RYT 500 level yoga teacher and owner of Prana Yoga Studio, and is assisted by graduates of SYTT courses. Together we support the students in their learnings during the modules and throughout their year's journey. We also have Maureen Thorpe, Ashtanga Teacher, Seasonal Yoga Directors; Marit Akintewe, Julie Hanson and Sue Woodd, nutritionist Karen Scobie, Claire Davidson Yoga for Pregnancy & NLP teacher, Nicki Watson & recent SYTT teachers for guidance & support.
