This is Traditional Yoga
Yoga Sutra 1:1
This course has been introduced for sincere and dedicated practitioners of Yoga who wish to explore and deepen their practice but who do not necessarily wish to teach.
It offers a comprehensive training in authentic traditional Yoga, informed by teachings received directly over many years by lead teacher Stephen Brandon from Sri T. Krishnamacharya’s direct and most dedicated students. The course format is based on the original system and learning methodology which requires the passing down of teachings in an undiluted manner, teacher to student, in a transmission that is in concord with the source teachings.
This in depth and comprehensive course is the first programme of its kind in Europe. It offers interested, sincere and dedicated yoga students – of all levels and traditions of practice – a unique opportunity to participate in the revival, practice and future propagation of pure & authentic Classical Yoga teachings under the guidance of an extraordinarily gifted and knowledgeable teacher – Stephen Brandon of Harmony Yoga UK and his experienced faculty.
Stephen has been leading Teacher Trainings, Practitioners Programmes & Workshops throughout the UK & Europe since 2007 and has studied in this tradition for 20 years, directly with Srivatsa Ramaswami, A.G. & Indra Mohan, T.K Sribhashyam and T.K.V Desikachar (the latter two being sons of Krishnamacharya) and senior students of these teachers.
The following is a brief overview and presentation of the course.
In this two year Practitioners Course – you will learn your craft and cultivate a strong and established self practice which will be backed up by in depth knowledge, understanding and embodiment of the principles of the philosophies and important texts which inform the practice.
The Practitioners Course is open to all students who simply would like to develop a solid and well informed home practice and to explore the subject more deeply – but who do not necessarily wish to teach.
Those who aspire to teach can then proceed into a third year where the emphasis shifts to the art of teaching and the entire course if taking the extra 100 Teacher Training option following the initial 200 hour Practitioner Course – leads to a 300 hour Teaching Certification.
We believe this two year learning and integration period is the minimum requirement necessary for developing a well informed personal practice. Having completed the two year practitioner programme you may then choose to continue onto a further one year teacher training programme for certification if you aspire to teach.
In the relatively unregulated domain of teacher training worldwide – there are many very short (from as little as one month) and expensive 200 hour training programmes on offer. Standards of yoga teaching are falling worldwide and precious knowledge and information from the source teachings are being lost in programmes that do not allow time for integration and understanding to evolve.
It is our aim to ensure the highest teaching standards possible are maintained on this programme and that all students will receive a yoga education which is worthy of the great teachings it embraces.
Course participants will receive ongoing support and mentorship in one to one and group classes following this programme so that the seeds which are sown can blossom.
