april 2021 – november 2022

overview

Join Anna and Jean for a free information q+a evening on Friday 12 February. Click here for details.

This 300-hour programme is designed for qualified yoga teachers and provides the opportunity for participants to work with senior teachers at the top of their field, within a structure that provides time and space for profound learning and growth, along with a supportive community of co-trainees and tutors. The course facilitates a process where participants evolve their teaching, expand their knowledge and develop the skills to make yoga accessible, sustainable and available in a wide and diverse range of settings, environments and communities.

The programme is accredited both by Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) and Yoga Alliance (US) and will be held in-person, and in some cases online.

Anna Ashby and Jean Hall, two of triyoga’s most experienced teachers and teacher trainers, will lead the training and will be joined by a faculty of experts to provide a programme that includes: Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Philosophy (traditional yoga texts and Western philosophy), experiential Anatomy + Physiology, Subtle Body Anatomy, Voicework, Chanting, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers and applied Teaching Methodology.

This year we are offering participants an option to take the training in separate parts and stages, in order to suit those who are looking to layer their learning more gradually or require more flexibility. Offered every two years, the advanced teacher training (ATT) provides an on-going opportunity to gain the ATT diploma over a longer time frame if needed.

Divided into three parts, Part 1 focuses on the foundations of embodied awareness applied to breath, movement, asana and teaching; Part 2 focuses on the subtle body, purposeful sequencing and approaches and strategies in teaching; Part 3, focuses on expanding the realm of yoga for mental health, trauma, self care and transformative space which culminates in a final project presentation. Each part of the training includes asana and teaching practices, pranayama and meditation, reflection, contemplation and discussion, embodied anatomy, chanting and philosophy.

course content

A journey from the body to the soul…

Setting the highest standards in yoga teaching, triyoga’s advanced teacher training course enables + empowers teachers to hone their skills in order to effectively teach students of all levels + experience. Delving deep into the rich and diverse expression of yoga, honouring tradition alongside fresh + innovative approaches, participants are supported in developing an authentic teaching style and voice that is confident, inspiring and embodied.

 

course description

The course programme comprises: Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Philosophy (traditional yoga texts and Western philosophy), experiential Anatomy + Physiology, Subtle Body Anatomy, Voicework, Chanting, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers and applied Teaching Methodology.

Each themed module, usually scheduled over a weekend, integrates teachings, theory and practice to provide a holistic view of a topic. Modules progressively build supporting a learning pace that enables students to absorb, apply and integrate the presented material and practices into their own teaching and practice outside of the course.

The architecture of the course provides continuity and community, as well as an empowered  learning environment where exploration sparks reflection, self-inquiry, and self-evaluation with the support of the tutors and co-trainees.

The final project represents an opportunity to engage in a creative, personal and experiential process/journey to explore and develop further any particular aspect of yoga that participants feel drawn to. It’s an opportunity to tailor the training in a way that realises a goal or direction in teaching and can serve as a roadmap for actualising that direction. Participants will have the opportunity to present their research and/or thoughts to their peers and tutors for feedback at the end of the course.
