BWY FOUNDATION COURSE
to deepen your knowledge and experience of yoga, or as a prep for yoga teacher training
This 60 hours accredited course will run on Saturdays 10:00am-5:00pm at Yoga Junction (Crouch End area, N8) over approximately 6 months. Some hours will be online. **2022 DATES TBA**
The training is practical (poses, breath-control, meditation, chanting, mudras) as well as theoretical (history, philosophy, anatomy, theory of energy body), covering topics of great interest that are not usually covered in regular group classes. The aim is to broaden your own yoga practice and knowledge of yoga, and to consider in which areas you might like to develop your practice in the future. It can also help you decide whether or not doing a teacher training.
This personal development course is like a foundational yoga teacher training without the teaching part, and no tests!
Due to social distancing, in 2021 we’ll begin the course online via Zoom and resume in-person when possible.
Entry Requirement: a minimum of 2 years practice of yoga (any style).
You must attend 80% of the course to receive the BWY Foundation Certificate.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 20th APRIL 2021
“Really good, well run, professional and thoughtfully put together course. A friendly atmosphere to learn in.”
“The course, being only a foundation course, has exceed my expectations. It is well structured and covers many aspects in great detail.”
“Freddie is a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and supportive teacher. I love her open-minded attitude and her encouragement for us to be curious.”
“I enjoyed spending time with the group. It was very special to share our yoga journeys with each other. The foundation course has given me a really good understanding of yoga which has strengthened my practice.”
“This course surpassed my expectations. Not only has it broadened my knowledge about the origins and history of yoga but it has directly helped me to grow as a person.”
At this stage I feel completely satisfied with what I have learnt and feel more prepared to go on to the teachers training.”
YIN AND YANG
a workshop with Freddie
There many types of yoga nowadays. Most could be described as either having a yin or yang quality, according to which energy they cultivate. A yang practice consists of steady, unrushed, warming movements, while a yin practice consists of longer-held, restorative, cooling poses. Ideally, we should try to incorporate both practices into regular weekly classes. Often though, due to time restraints, one is prevailing.
A longer workshop can integrate the reinvigorating effect of yang and the grounding effect of yin into a balanced whole practice, which helps us maintain optimal health and wellbeing. Invest in an afternoon with yourself and experience how a comprehensive yang into yin journey through movement, poses, mobility and stability, breath-work, mindfulness and relaxation can allow you to restore a sense of balance, and feel nourished, calm, at peace.
Suitable for students with some experience of Hatha yoga and/or dynamic styles of yoga.
**NEXT WORKSHOP – 2021 TBA**
