Full Description

IYM (integrated yoga + mindfulness)
200 hour Teacher Training Course Outline
Aim
This course seeks to develop the capacity in trainee teachers to teach mindfulness as an integral part of asana practice and so cultivate the awareness that our body is a map of our mind. Any aspiring teacher of IYM needs to develop this capacity within themselves in order to effectively teach it to others and move the practice off the
mat and into daily life. There is a strong emphasis on developing teaching confidence throughout the course.
Pre-requisites
• 2 years regular yoga practice
• An existing mindfulness practice (or equivalent) or enrolment on an 8 week mindfulness course to be completed before the end of the teacher training.
About Modules 1, 2 + 3
There are 3 modules of 7 days each plus one day of mindfulness.

Module 1 introduces key mindfulness techniques and their integration into yoga practice. You will learn the philosophical underpinning of mindfulness and directly experience the impact this has on your practice and the practice of your future students. You will have had the opportunity to safely practice teaching a wide range of primary postures in ways suitable for a diverse audience. You will be introduced to the principles of sequencing in preparation for Module 2. Students who are ready will be encouraged to set up first classes for beginners/friends.

Module 2 starts with an opportunity to consolidate your learning from Module 1.
We move onto a range of different sequences with the opportunity to design and teach your own sequences in pairs and larger groups. Supporting this will be a further deepening of your use of mindfulness, both in the integration within the posture and also in the way you teach and interact with students.

Module 3 is focused on harnessing all that you have learned in the past two modules and honing your teaching skills. There will be a focus on class craft, developing your own voice, appropriate sequences and knowledge of suitable adjustments.
