BWY Foundation Courses and Teacher Training courses 

The 60-hour Foundation course is designed to explore yoga in more depth. It includes practical and theoretical work on asana, pranayama, concentration and meditation as well as topics such as the history of yoga and the different paths and schools of yoga as well as an introduction to basic yoga philosophy - the yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Hathayogapradipika and more.
This course is intended for students 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.  We have 2 foundation courses starting in the next few months.

The longer Teacher Training courses involve a more in depth look at teaching techniques, lesson planning, anatomy, modifying and adapting postures for all needs, and teaching practice within the course.  We have a Certificate course starting in September this year.

We have courses running throughout the year with experienced BWY qualified teachers.  Please see the TRAINING section for all the details
