Full Description

Students are inspired by the depth of Jim’s technical knowledge of bio-mechanics, and by his experience of teaching and practicing for 28 years. Students benefit by learning from a “teaching team” of experienced and inspired teachers.

Their combined skills make this a world-class teacher training experience. The 200hr course may be taken with no aspiration to be a teacher, but just as an experience to deepen ones connection to yoga. This experience is guaranteed to change the way that you look at and practice yoga.

Anatomy and Physiology
Applied anatomy and physiology, principles of alignment, bandha and biomechanics of yoga
Injury management and special conditions
