Module I (5 weekends + One Friday evening) & Module II sessions will run for 11 weekends once monthly (+ 2 Friday evening sessions)
This TTC is designed to deliver a holistic approach to yoga that encompasses not just learning about the asanas (postures) but also the many other aspects of yoga: pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and yogic philosophy in order to adopt yoga as a way of living rather than a practice that is done on a mat during a specific period of time.
Conducted over 11 weekends with students attending 2 days each month + 2 Friday evenings within those 11 months, this non-residential training allows you to truly integrate what you learn each month and complete the online aspects in between the training sessions without having to try learn the vastness of yogic studies in a month!
This part-time program enables those with busy lives, and other family and/or work commitments to complete a training in a flexible way.
The price of the course includes all training sessions and the manual. It does not include any accommodation or meals.
