Introductory Training sessions with Alan Brown

Are you interested in training to become an Iyengar Yoga teacher? If you have a reasonable standard of practice and have been attending Iyengar Yoga classes for a minimum of 3 years then you may wish to consider joining a new training course

I will be starting from September this year.  Anybody interested may attend one of my training days on either 15th or 16th August as a try out and to have their level of practice assessed.

Joining the course requires a commitment to attend a full weekend day of teacher training on average once a month over a two year period (dates to be agreed among participants), as well as continuing to attend a regular weekly class.  The course involves some written coursework but is essentially practically based, focussing on learning teaching skills and improving personal practice.

The cost is dependent on the number of participants but is likely to be in the region of £500-£600 p.a. payable in quarterly installments.   There will be one full day assessment at the end of the two year course (October 2017) where successful candidates will obtain an Introductory Iyengar Yoga teaching certificate.

If you are interested please contact me:   Alan Brown by email alan@iyengaryogateacher.co.uk   or phone 01535 637359  /  07710589015.
