So straight from the beginning of the course you will be familiarised with alignment, correction and adjustments using anatomy and physiology of the human body. You will have theory anatomy classes to know the different systems of the human body and how they interact with each other. You will go deeply into the muscle system to know the origin, insertion and action of the main muscle groups used in the main Yoga postures. You will apply this knowledge in the techniques training to understand the benefice and contraindication of the different yoga poses. Also you will cover the anatomy of the subtle body or energy body introducing the Nadis (energy channels), Chakras (energy centres), Mudras (gestures) and Bandhas (locks). Anatomy is very important to us, it gives you the necessary understanding of the biomechanics, structure and physics of the body to develop yoga poses. During our different qualifications and experiences, we gathered a strong anatomy and physiology knowledge. We found that it was necessary to have a deep anatomy learning for Yoga. We created the course in a more practical way, constantly applying the knowledge gained through the course to the Yoga practice, avoiding saturation.

You will also learn how to use props as blocks, belts and bolsters to create classes that are beneficial for different intensity level of Yoga. With our progressive technique you will practice teaching early in your course to help you to develop the necessary skill that you will need as a Yoga teacher. First you will start with one partner, then to a small group, moving to a bigger group and teaching to the whole class by the end of the course. All along the course you will receive feedback on your teaching and you will learn by observing other teaching. Through the course, we will support you to build your self-esteem and knowledge in order to be confident to teach a Yoga class.
