This module comprises of 100 hours of study in the studio over a total of 12 days. This module is where you really begin your journey from yoga student to yoga teacher. Our aim here is fundamentally to equip you with all you need to know to begin teaching yoga classes as well as instilling the confidence to do so. Finding your voice and evolving as a new teacher in these early stages is exciting and transformational.
This part of the training has a rigorous practical focus, which provides students with plenty of insight into teaching methodology as well as the invaluable experience of teaching practice. Students are assessed and given constructive and detailed feedback to offer individual guidance as well as support for this element of the course. Students completing the Foundation 2 will also need to study the Philosophy and Anatomy modules to gain a 200-hour certificate.
