Foundation Course 1 is designed to explore yoga in more depth. It includes practical and theoretical work on the eight limbs of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras Chapter 2 e.g. asana, pranayama, concentration and meditation. As well as the history, different paths and schools of yoga.
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.
Foundation Course 2 is for students who have completed Foundation Course 1 and would like to continue to broaden their depth of yoga knowledge, without training to be a yoga teacher.
The course content includes more asana and pranayama, as well as meditation, chanting, prana, nadis, kosas (pancamaya), mudras, bandhas, kriyas and an in-depth study of Chapter 1 of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. The course also includes approaches to planning personal practices to meet individual needs.
