Foundation Course

British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course

This 60 hour course is designed to explore yoga in more depth than you would get in an average class. It includes practical and theoretical sessions.

Topics explored include the classical yoga texts. Patanjali’s yoga sutras are explored as a way to understand his comprehensive system of personal development which include ways of caring for yourself as well as guidance on your interactions with others, in addition to the better known aspects of yoga like postures, breathing and meditation.

The course also covers the history of yoga, and the different paths and schools of yoga. There is plenty of opportunity for practical practice of yoga postures and practices, exploring the anatomy and physiology which make these so beneficial; and encouragement and guidance on developing a personal yoga practice which suits your life and needs.

It is intended for any yoga students who would like to develop their knowledge of yoga further as well as those wanting to go on to train as teachers to provide them with the basics needed before undertaking a yoga teaching course.

The cost of the course is £500 (payable in 3 instalments) which includes a BWY course registration fee. You will need to also be a member of the BWY during the duration of the course. The instalments are: £200 due on acceptance of place; £150 by two months prior; £150 by one month prior.

I am planning dates for a Foundation Course for  2019. I will post details here when confirmed but you can also message me and ask for updates to be sent to you when available.

If there is a demonstrated need for it I may also run a Foundation Course on a weekday. There is an opportunity on the form below to indicate your preference for a Sunday or a weekday.
