Hi! I’m Victoria, the Founder of StretchBodyMind. After 4 years of successfully teaching Pilates Instructors I started delivering my own brand of Yoga Teacher Training last year. This is unlike any training out there. For a start, it is condensed so you will complete the training in 6 months rather than the usual 2 years.
Another difference is that this course has been specifically designed with your previous experience as a Personal Trainer or Fitness Instructor in mind. This means I can spend less time on developing your teaching skills and more time on developing your knowledge and understanding of yoga.
At the end, you will receive a certificate allowing you to teach Hatha yoga but during the course you will also receive the latest in positive psychology, mindfulness meditation and Kundalini Kriyas – in short, a personal development education as well as professional development one!
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THIS COURSE?
You’re already a great Instructor with a sound knowledge of the body and how it moves but you want to know more about the mind-body connection. The StretchBodyMind Yoga Teacher Training course is designed to build on your knowledge and train you in a modern hatha style of Yoga using the ancient works of Patanjali as a base for our work.
This is an intimate quality learning experience. Victoria delivers hands-on training in a small group so she is totally approachable, available and offers the best philosophy and teaching alignment. In each of the weekends you will be invited to become fully present to your body, mind and breath so that you can experience the state of “yoga” and you will then be expected to teach this to YOUR students.
WHAT STYLE OF YOGA ARE WE LEARNING?
The StretchBodyMind 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course focuses on the fundamentals of Hatha Yoga which are key to all styles of yoga. Your principal tutor (Victoria) has trained in Kundalini, Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Pre-Natal, Children’s and Anusara Yoga amongst others so all these different influences will be brought together into your training. The certificate you receive will allow you to teach Hatha yoga which is a very broad designation and will allow you to find your distinct and personal teaching style. Victoria is intentionally seeking students for this programme who want to find their own voice as a yoga teacher. While she will certainly provide you with a multitude of strong tools and templates to build with, this is your time to learn and share what yoga means to you.
WHAT ARE THE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS?
There are no special entry requirements although the course is best suited to those already practicing Yoga with a strong self-practice, or those already working within the fitness or health industry. Individual attention and guidance in the subtlety and art of yoga practice will be offered so that you may progress towards developing or deepening your own personal practice.
WHERE IS THE VENUE?
The venue for the StretchBodyMind Yoga Teacher Training is Cinnabarre Salon & Studio, 4 Hill Street, Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, ML2 7AT. This brand new salon & studio is ideally situated in Central Scotland with great motorway connections making both Edinburgh and Glasgow just a 30-minute drive away. Furthermore, the train station is just one stop from Motherwell and the whole of the UK train map.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE COURSE IS FINISHED?
Once you have received your certificate of completion from StretchBodyMind you will also be registered with the Yoga Alliance UK at the 200 hour level which will allow you to use the letters RYT after your name, join the UK Yoga Alliance register as a registered Yoga Teacher and apply for work in many studios, gyms and health clubs. It is recommended that you begin teaching as soon as you complete the course to small groups of friends and neighbours so that you are developing what you have learned during your training.
The benefits of completing an intensive yoga study are not limited to teaching, however. Many students who take teacher training programmes never intend to teach. Participants find that the in-depth nature of this programme helps them to deepen their personal yoga practice. Since each weekend builds on the one before it, the potential for growth is orders of magnitude larger than the growth that can be attained in a normal group class setting.
