Information about the course
The British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course is ideal for anyone who has attended yoga classes for two years or more, and wishes to develop their personal practice of yoga by delving deeper into its philosophy and traditions. It provides a comprehensive grounding in basic practical techniques, taught in the context of the philosophy that underpins yoga. It is a solid grounding for those who may wish to train as yoga teachers in the future, but is equally suitable for yoga students who do not wish to teach.
The Course syllabus includes the following:
- preparation for physical practice – limbering safely and sensibly
- asana (postures) foundational poses and pose groups (e.g. twists, forward bends etc.)
- mudra (seals or hand gestures)
- basic breathing as well as pranayama (breath control),
- kriya (cleansing practices)
- concentration techniques and first steps in meditation
- relaxation techniques
- chanting (including Om and the Bija Mantras)
- Talks including the History of Yoga, Prana and the Pranic Body, Overview and philosophy
of key yogic texts, the Paths of Yoga, and the Eight Limbs of Yoga.
The course will be delivered via lectures, class discussions, and group work. We will also explore the physical aspects of yoga by experiencing them as practice, both individually and with partners, throughout our sessions together. You’ll be required to practise regularly at home throughout the course (following instruction; support and handouts will be given) and you are encouraged to reflect upon and make notes on your practice in journal form. Other than this there is no written homework and the course is not formally assessed. On completion of the course you will be awarded the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course 1 Certificate of Attendance.
The course consists of 60 hours of tuition split over 10 sessions. The sessions will run monthly on Saturdays from October 2019 to May 2020, followed by two consecutive sessions on a single weekend in June. An
Introductory session will be held on Saturday September 7th, 9am –12pm, to give an overview of the content and flavour of the course, and to answer any questions you might have. Following attendance of this session you can apply for a place on the course. It is recommended you attend the introductory session before applying, however if for any reason you can’t make it please contact me.
