I am delighted to offer the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course at my home studio in Horsham, West Sussex from November 2019 to July 2020.I am offering the course fortnightly on Thursday evenings, plus two Sunday sessions at the start and end of the course.
This is a structured 60-hour course, certified by the BWY, covering aspects of yoga practice, philosophy and theory that will take your yoga practice to a deeper level.
What you will learn:
During the sessions you will experience and learn about:
·benefits of postures, why and how to incorporate them into a balanced home personal practice;
·breathing and pranayama practices to balance and enhance energy levels,
·different relaxation methods and their relevance in yoga.
·techniques for meditation and concentration.
·aspects of yoga often unexplored in classes, such as mudra, bandha, and kriya (cleansing practices),
You will also learn about the fascinating history and philosophy of yoga and other features such as the yogic body, including chakras and nadis, plus anatomy in postures. There are no formal assessments and you will receive a BWY Foundation Course Certificate for attendance of 80% or more of the course. You will be encouraged and supported to continue a regular yoga practice, home study and practice, though there is no formal homework.
