3-Day Foundation Teacher Training
14th - 16th February 2020
New for 2020, this 3-day foundation yoga teacher training is where you’ll experience what it’s really like to train as a teacher. You’ll be immersed in yogic practises and rituals (such as daily yoga intensives, breath work, meditation and chanting), you’ll get to sample some of the lectures and workshops from our main 200hr training, and you’ll really get to know our dedicated team of trainers. If you’re considering training as a teacher then this 3-day foundation is the ideal place to start. Equally, if you just want to immerse yourself in yoga and deepen your learnings, this will be a wonderful opportunity.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This programme is for yoga practitioners from any style who aspire to improve their personal practice and perhaps one day teach yoga. A minimum amount of yoga practice/experience is not required. This is for anyone who wants a reset away from their normal routine with three full days of yoga.
This programme is highly experiential in nature, so you’ll be learning through doing. This is key to creating lasting change in your yoga practice and in retaining the knowledge and skills you’ll acquire.
Daily yoga practices
Like a mini yoga retreat, you’ll get to do loads of yoga each day so you can fully grasp the concepts we’ll then go on to dissect and discuss. Daily breathing and meditation will help you to ground and get present in your environment, and the daily physical practices will invigorate your entire system. You’ll also get to try other yogic rituals like Kiryas (cleansing techniques) and Kirtan (call and response heart led chanting). After the 3 days you can expect to feel really great in your body and positive in mindset.
Sample lectures and workshops from our main TT
You’ll learn pose tips and tricks in our posture workshops, get an introduction to yoga anatomy, learn skill-full teaching principles and have a go at teaching your fellow participants.
A nurturing experience
Limited to a maximum of just 16 participants, you are guaranteed to get the support you need. Parts of the days will be taught at Tom & Ellika’s house where you’ll experience a more intimate connection with the group, and get full use of their kitchen, toilets and shower facilities.
Get to know the trainers from our main 200hr training. You’ll be carefully guided by Tom, Craig, and Ellika who together hold 30+ years experience teaching yoga and facilitating trainings. The Yoga Edge is a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance. Our programmes and trainers exceed the standards set by this international organisation maintaining excellence in the industry.
This programme will be held across two locations. The Yoga Edge Crystal Palace studio and at Tom & Ellika’s house (just 8 minutes walk away).
