THE YOGA ACADEMY TEACHER TRAINING COURSE

(BWY ACCREDITATION, YOGA ALLIANCE 200-HOUR CERTIFICATION)

 

Our next 2-year course at our residential venue Commonwork Farm near Sevenoaks in Kent begins 22 April 2016.

 

British Wheel of YogaThe Yoga Academy, founded by its principal Simon Low and accredited with the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY), has been training yoga teachers in the UK since 2003. BWY is recognised by The Sports Council as the governing body for Yoga in the UK. BWY accreditation is also honoured throughout the European community. Upon successfully graduating from our rigorous 2-year course, our students become BWY-accredited yoga teachers, which entitles them to use the abbreviation ‘BWY’ and BWY logo as part of their title. BWY teacher membership also includes teaching insurance in the UK and full support from the BWY.

Our 2-year Yoga Academy teacher training course curriculum also meets, and extensively exceeds, the minimum standards set by Yoga Alliance US at the 200-hour level. Yoga Alliance US was established in 1998 to form a registry of international yoga teachers, who meet the standards of training as set by Yoga Alliance US. Our training school has also met the stringent requirements set by Yoga Alliance UK, demonstrating that our courses are of the highest standard and that our graduates may use the title 'Registered Yoga Teacher' (RYT) as a sign of quality training, when they register themselves with Yoga Alliance UK. Upon successful graduation therefore, in addition to becoming BWY-accredited teachers, our graduates are entitled to register with both Yoga Alliance US and Yoga Alliance UK as teachers at the 200-hour level.

 

Structured into four core 7-day residential intensives and a 3-day final intensive with graduation, our 2-year teacher training course is held at two delightful locations: our beautiful country venue Commonwork in the UK, which is near Sevenoaks and Oxted in Kent, and at a Mediterranean yoga retreat and training centre Santillán, which is a joint project between Santillán, Simon Low and The Yoga Academy. Santillán is located on the south coast of Spain, approximately 30 minutes east of Malaga.

 

We have a highly experienced, international faculty and are committed to keeping our group numbers small, at maximum 20 students. This is to ensure single accommodation and adequate personal guidance and mentoring to each student throughout the course.
