The Foundation Course
This Foundation Level course is based upon and is a continuation of the preceding Discovery Level course. This Foundation course has it own new syllabus and takes you further along the path as a yoga teacher.
The three week Foundation course, combined with the one week (5 - day) Discovery course qualifies you for the international Yoga Alliance 200 hour registration. When you have successfully completed both courses you may register with the YA and professionally use the letters RYT200 after your name.
The Foundation Asana, Pranayama & Meditation syllabus consists of:
• Earth & Sun Salutations
• 4 Inverted Poses (heating)
• 9 Standing Poses
• 2 Arm Balancings
• 7 Forward Bends
• 5 Sitting Poses
• 2 Abdominals
• 3 Twists
• 6 Backbends
• 4 Inverted Poses (cooling)
• 9 Pranayama
• Breath focused Meditation
The Anatomy & Physiology covers the basics of movement, muscles and bones and is taught with direct application to the yoga postures. The Philosophy looks at What Is Yoga, Ten Fundamental Principles of Yoga, In Praise of the Philosophical Life, Why Study Yoga, Philosophy, The Seven Steps of Psychospiritual Maturation, A Bird’s-Eye View of the History of Yoga, and Yoga Sutras Chanting.
Combined with the Discovery syllabus, you now have enough information, knowledge and skills to teach yoga competently and successfully for many years to come.
Your certification only allows you to teach what is specifically prescribed in this course. When you are ready to learn more and broaden your knowledge base, we have another 7 Levels of Teacher Training waiting.
Students who do not wish to teach may also attend the course to intensively deepen their practice and grow their yoga knowledge. You will receive a Foundation Asana and Pranayama Manual and a Foundation Teaching Certificate (if you pass the course).
