Prerequisites

Students are required to have a minimum of 2 years strong yoga practice before they can be accepted on to any training course; no exceptions can be made. It is also helpful for students to have a basic understanding of the philosophy of yoga. Successful applicants should be in good health and have stable personal circumstances to complete this course with the focus and dedication it requires.

COURSE STRUCTURES
The virtual training will take place over the specific number of days, with up to a year to submit course assignments. You will receive access to the online training platform where you can access the pre-recorded section of the training, and will be part of a private Facebook Group where you can interact with your fellow trainees, and ask questions and gain access to links and files relevant to the course. You will also have interactive Zoom classes, where Louisa can answer any questions and give you feedback. Final teaching assessments will be carried out using video recordings.
Because the training will be a combination of pre-recorded classes, accessed through the Training Platform and live Zoom classes, which are recorded and sent to all students daily, you can adapt your training to suit your time zone and schedule. If possible, it is best to organise your schedule so that you have some interactive live classes so you can ask questions and receive feedback, etc. During the course you will be able to book a one-to-one videocall with Louisa if needed. Upon completion of the training, you will have still have access to the LKY Training Platform, where you can re-watch the live lectures whenever you like, and be part of the Facebook Group.

SYLLABUSES & READING LISTS

Yoga & Ayurveda (40 hrs) available from 20th July 2020

Trainees will learn how to tailor their yoga teaching through the system of Ayurveda, the sister-science to Yoga. Ayurveda looks to the five elements as a foundation for experiencing balance both in the natural world and within our beings. The doshas, comprised of varying degrees of the five elements, are the 3 bodily humors that make up one’s mind/body constitution.
Trainees will learn traditional Hatha Yoga practices such as pranayama techniques and asanas that are geared toward increasing or decreasing the 5 elements and in turn the 3 doshas. Other practices such as mantra recitation and meditation will be taught specific to each dosha as well. Classes will vary from gentle to moderate intensity depending on the elements/doshas being explored in each specific class.
Trainees will learn how to choose a yoga practice that fits their individual body’s needs or that of a student, as well as the time of year and place in life. For example, some days certain body/mind types need grounding, warming, relaxing flows, while others benefit more from precise, mental focus, and cooling routines and still others are best served by invigorating, uplifting, dynamic sequences. We will explore them all and trainees will have teaching practice assignments to learn how to make a yoga practice truly therapeutic for the body, mind, and spirit.

This course certifies yoga teachers (who have already completed a 200-hour YTT) to lead Ayurvedic-inspired yoga classes in both group and individualised settings and is also open to experienced yoga practitioners who would like to explore this field of study. It is also part of the 300hr YTT and the hours can go towards the training. Please note that this training incorporates Ayurvedic wisdom through doshic-specific asana, pranayama, meditation, and chanting, and is not an Ayurvedic dietary course. It can also be taken by yoga practitioners who want to take their practice further but will not qualify them to become yoga teachers.

Seasonal Yoga, Theming & Workshops (20 hrs) available 21st November 2020

Honouring the rhythms of nature honours the flow of our own lives and is an opportunity to be in harmony with all of Life. Seasonal Yoga refers to practices attuned to the changing rhythms and energy of the seasons. There is a natural cycle of life, moving through beginning, sustaining, and letting go. By attuning to the rhythms of natural cycles, we are attempting to tap into the intelligence from which the cycle originates. The rhythms and cycles of nature can teach us about how things are connected, and how to align with a natural flow. This course will allow trainees to learn how to teach their classes according to the seasons and during events such as the summer solstice. There will also be information on how to theme a class and plan it using various techniques (meditation, pranayama, asana, etc). This training also will guide yoga teachers on how to run workshops & retreats, and how to prepare relevant documents.

Trainees will learn of the current natural phenomena and will begin to make observations and associations with the energy of this phase.

Trainees will go a little deeper by learning of related themes and practices designed to align with the energy and will experiment with practices on their own or in community.

Trainees will be inspired to incorporate a particular element in their class plan: readings, themes, poses, breathing practices or mantras.

Trainees will learn how to plan and theme a yoga class

Trainees will learn how to plan workshops & retreats, including documentation & legalities
