Join AYP Yoga in a course that will cover both practice and theory. Practice classes will include asana, pranayama, meditation and samyama. The course will cover many other aspects of yoga, from subtle anatomy to advanced pranayama practices and from yoga philosophy to self-inquiry. The course will lead to the designation of RYT-200 (Registered Yoga Teacher) with the Yoga Alliance.
The accommodation provided is on single room, shared room for 2 or 3 people, or dormitory basis at the Moulin de Chaves retreat center. Moulin de Chaves is a large country house near Perigueux. The house is set in 5 acres of land by a river in a wooded region. The house has extensive grounds with a meditation hall which will be used for all the sitting practice sessions.
There are also woods within the grounds with clearings, which can be used for camping. The Moulin is, at heart, a place to be, an environment to let go of your outer focused busy life and turn our attention gently and inquiringly inwards, to explore heart, body, mind, and life.
The focus of the training will be on qualifying teachers to be able to teach asanas, spinal breathing pranayama, and deep meditation practice. The course will also cover many other aspects of yoga, from subtle anatomy to advanced pranayama practices and from yoga philosophy to self-inquiry. The yoga will be full-scope, covering all 8 limbs of yoga, as taught by Sri Patanjali.
The course will provide a comprehensive study program for students training to become AYP yoga teachers. The course is designed to produce competent, safe and compassionate teachers who meet a high standard of training. The course includes both study and practice, leading participants to experience the transformational quality of yoga.
The training will equip you to be able to effectively bring your knowledge and experience of yoga to others and to help you transform their lives. The course will also include the study of the philosophy of yoga, teaching methodology, anatomy, physiology, both physical and subtle, as well as classical Hatha yoga techniques such as asana, meditation and pranayama.
The course also has a karma yoga period that could include things like vegetable chopping, kitchen clean-up, helping in the gardens, or sweeping the meditation hall. Everyone will rotate jobs each week.
Although the course is called a 200-hour teacher training, this retreat will consist of 214 hours of study and practice. The 200-hour refers to the training level under the Yoga Alliance teacher training standards for RYT 200.
The participants will be assessed both through practical assignments during the course and also through a written exam at the end of the course. The written examination will not cover the full course curriculum but will only cover the material that students need to know to effectively teach asana practice, meditation, and pranayama.
The Teacher Training Course will comprise of the following categories:
