Hi! I’m Victoria, the Founder of StretchBodyMind.

After successful trials during Lockdown, this autumn we are bringing our renowned Yoga Teacher Training course entirely online. However, you might be online but you are not alone! 

When you sign up you will receive a “care package” including your hard copy Manual, a StretchBodyMind branded Student Journal and a couple of other surprises.

You will be invited to a dedicated WhatsApp group and you will have a number of private coaching sessions during the training period. 

During the course, in addition to the practical yoga teaching skills you’ll gain, you will also receive the latest in positive psychology, mindfulness meditation and Kundalini kriyas.

In short, you’ll get a personal development education as well as professional development one!

METHODOLOGY

The Yoga Teacher Training is housed on the StretchBodyMind Online Studio.

The training is a mixture of:

  • pre-recorded videos and audios that you can access at any time
  • required reading which includes classical yoga texts and a comprehensive manual
  • filling in a Learner Achievement Portfolio (including creating your own set of yoga class plans)
  • taking part in the monthly live group calls as well as practice teaching in between calls

This course might be online but that doesn’t mean any drop in quality. I am limiting the number of students on the course to just twelve so you will not be lost in the crowd.

When you sign up to the training you will receive a “care parcel” from me which gives you something tangible to go along with the ephemeral. You will also receive regular one-to-one coaching with me during the training to ensure you are fully prepared to hit the ground running as a Yoga Teacher in 2021.

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

 For this component of your training, we’re partnering with world-renowned Yoga Educators & best-selling authors of Yoga Anatomy, Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews.

Using what they’ve learned in their combined 50-years of experience training yoga teachers, they’ve created a unique online course that’s exclusively available through Teacher Training programmes: YogaAnatomy.net Fundamentals.

This is not your average anatomy training!

Leslie & Amy spend time on the things that matter most to a yoga teacher and skip the “which bone is which” lessons that make you feel like you’re back in high school science classes…

They’ll help you establish a broad base of knowledge by sharing examples, analogies, stories, and guiding you through physical experiments that make the material helpful and applicable to teaching yoga to students.

Leslie & Amy will also share their own favorite teaching strategies like:

* How to make poses accessible for any student
* What to do when students have an injury and still want to practice
* Simple cues that help every student find success on the mat

Leslie and Amy’s unique blend of humor and expertise make them the absolute best team to guide you through this phase of your journey, plus you’ll work with Victoria to consolidate the learning.

SCHEDULE

The course takes place from Friday 30 October 2020 until Sunday 21 March 2021 but you get access to some pre-recorded lectures as soon as you sign up.

Each monthly live training takes place on Friday from 6pm – 9pm and then Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 5pm.

In between times, we will meet as a group for practice teaching and on a one-to-one basis for coaching.

Dates are:

  1.  30 Oct – 1 Nov 2020
  2.  27 – 29 Nov 2020
  3.  18-20 Dec 2020
  4.  15 – 17 Jan 2021
  5. 12-14 Feb 2021
  6. 19-21 Mar 2021

MAIN POINTS OF DIFFERENCE

There are a lot of different Yoga Teacher Training courses out there which can make it difficult to choose the one that’s right for you.

So, if you like…

  • Small class sizes (maximum 12 people per course) and lots of personal attention from your course tutor
  • Hands-on practice of teaching skills so you develop as a teacher rather than having to write essays to prove your worth as a student
  • A chance to try out different styles of hatha yoga to find the one that fits your style of teaching rather than having to teach to a set script
  • A personal development education using proven tools for transformation as well as professional development training
  • A shared learning experience in which you feel encouraged, accepted and part of a community no matter how advanced your asana practice

Then the StretchBodyMind Yoga Teacher Training is the one for you!

TESTIMONIALS

I am fully committed to the StretchBodyMind Yoga Teacher Training and I want you to be sure that you are too. For this reason there are NO refunds.

While I am offering an installment option, it is important to remember that by paying your deposit you are committing to the full programme and will have to pay the full amount, even if you drop out of the training. You will also not be allowed to graduate until you have paid the remainder of the course costs.
