Introductory Course 2017

LYTTG Introductory Course 2017

The aim of this course is to provide a thorough grounding in the approach to yoga inspired by Vanda Scaravelli and Mary Stewart, whose teaching emphasises the relationship between gravity, breath and the spine. This approach has produced a diverse community of highly individual yoga teachers, two of whom will be present at all sessions.

The course will consist of eight full days taking place between September and December 2017 (see below for dates). Led by Sarah Linsey and Bridget Thornborrow the objective is to encourage students to develop an intelligent, sensitive individual yoga practice and to work together in a collaborative and discursive way with an open exchange of ideas.

“It was great to do two consecutive days a month for the four months. And it was really interesting to meet and talk to people from all over the country and compare ideas about yoga.” Sue

There will be an in-depth and exploratory approach to asana, with a solid foundation in breath awareness and breathing practices. The course will include an introduction to functional anatomy by Peter Blackaby in a series of practical sessions and Neville Cregan will provide an introduction to yoga philosophy.

The course is designed to prepare students for the London Yoga Teacher Training Course, should they wish to pursue their yoga studies, and will provide an introduction to key tutors on the full teacher training. Current LYTTC directors, Lisa McRory, Cara Bowen and Anne-Marie Zulkahari will all lead sessions so that students have the opportunity to meet them and experience their teaching styles. For further information about any of these teachers use the Teacher Search (hypertext link) facility.

The next two-year teacher training will commence in the Spring of 2018 and is fully accredited by the BWY. The LYTTC is co-founded by Chloe Fremantle and Anne-Marie Zulkahari.

“The three hours of posture work each day seemed daunting to start with but in actual fact was not difficult to do. I have since signed up to the LYTTG Teacher Training course and the Intro course really helped develop my own yoga practice and my understanding of the postures so I could take it further.” Tim
