WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

I have lived and breathed yoga for 33 years. I have taught for over 20 years. I have been training others for over a decade. I continue to invest in my own personal and professional development. And now? 

It is time…
For me to peel back the curtain on my own business…
For me to share my wisdom with you…
And for you to share your wisdom with the world!

You have lots of great ideas for your future in the wellness industry but don’t know how to execute them.

Perhaps you want to teach meditation, Pilates, yoga or a combination of all three? Create an online course? Even your own signature programme??

In this 6-month container, I will work with you to realise your dreams for your life and business. This is my highest level training and mentorship programme to help you become qualified and scale up in a big way.

You will work with me – the StretchBodyMind Founder – on a 1:1 basis for a 6-month period and will receive accredited professional development training in Yoga as well as strategic business training, soul-led leadership coaching, and personal accountability to take you to the next level (and to give you the mindset to deal with your success!)

YOUR GUIDE

Hi! I’m Victoria Cunningham, founder of Teacher Training organisation StretchBodyMind and the creator of award-winning charity Stretch & Play, one of a handful of globally recognised Yoga Alliance Professionals Trainer PROs and I’ve created this 6-month container to help you realise your vision for your life and business. 

Having taught Yoga for 20 years, Pilates for 15 and training others for over a decade, I have been feeling called to create something new, something deeper, for you. A way to help you on a deeply personal level. Not just another training programme.

I love my group Yoga, Pilates and Meditation Teacher Training courses and they will continue but THIS… this is not passive, or generic, or held back by the accreditation process. This is different… This is about becoming an embodied leader, not just a teacher.

This is my signature coaching package where you will be my top priority for the next six months as we build your dream life together. 

This is a perfect mix of 1:1 coaching, mentoring and training together with self-directed study, personal accountability, practical action steps and resources. 

When you sign up you will receive a “care package” including a custom designed StretchBodyMind Mala (worth $108), a Desire Map Diary (worth $50) and a couple of other surprises.

You will undertake an in-depth apprenticeship, where you work with me on a 1:1 basis, and will gain practical teaching and business skills.

Using the lens of Ayuveda, the Enneagram, and the Chakras you will define your authentic teaching style.

You will receive access to my renowned Stretch Your Biz course and business skills support to become a LEADER and not just a teacher.

CURRICULUM

The entire StretchBodyMind Teacher Training curriculum is designed around the following elements:

FOUNDATION, EXPRESSION AND VISION

as these 3 elements are the cornerstone of StretchBodyMind Founder Victoria’s Yoga Teaching and Pilates Instruction.

The FOUNDATION element includes:

  • Who are you?

  • Yoga history and philosophy

  • Western Anatomy and Physiology

  • Sanskrit (the language of Yoga)

  • Asana

  • Pranayama

The EXPRESSION element includes:

  • Teaching Authentically
  • Different Meditation Techniques
  • Different Yoga styles

  • Eastern Anatomy and Physiology

  • The Voice of the Teacher

  • How to create trauma-sensitive classes

The VISION element includes:

  • Becoming a Leader
  • Rituals and space holding
  • Planning classes

  • Sequencing and theming

  • An Introduction to Ayurveda

  • Teaching online

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 and meditation class plans)
  • taking part in the 1:1 calls as well as practice teaching in between calls

Yoga was originally transmitted from teacher to student in a rich personal relationship (the gurukula system). This 1:1 mentorship will guide you in the traditional way using modern means of communication (Zoom and WhatsApp).

This course might be online but that doesn’t mean any drop in quality. In fact, this is an intimate training where I will be working with you on a 1:1 basis to help you become an embodied LEADER and not just a teacher.

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.

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

 For this component of your training, I’m 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

 Because we’re working on a 1:1 basis the sessions are shorter but much more intensive than in a class setting. It will be expected that you complete work outside of those contact hours and you will receive unlimited WhatsApp support during the year to help you do this.

You will receive:

  • 3 x 2-hour live yoga skills training sessions
  • 6 x 1-hour coaching appointments for mindset coaching and to plan your Yoga business (monthly)
  • Unlimited WhatsApp support for 6 months
  • One year’s access to the StretchBodyMind online studio with pre-recorded training videos and recordings of all live calls for a full year after graduation

I believe that you need time to assimilate the teachings of Yoga so we will work together for a total of six months on your Yoga Teacher Training. Working 1:1 gives us flexibility so your final assessment will only take place when you feel ready.

I would love for you to take the next step in your practice and business and earn your 200-hour Yoga Teacher training from the comfort of your own home AND save thousands of pounds doing it. No paying for travel, accommodation or the added expense of in-person training!

TESTIMONIALS

Since I started the course I have found a deeper love of yoga and the course has honestly changed me as a person. I feel much more confident in my chosen path, more grounded and present, and I’ve loved learning so much in all the different areas covered in each class! I feel I’ve achieved much more happiness since starting on the course.  I could not recommend this course enough, it’s a lifetime investment!!!!!
Beverley, Ireland 2020 Graduate

Before I signed up I thought “What sort of teacher would be taking the course – strict, scary, demanding….??? What if the course wasn’t for me after spending a lot of money and not enjoying it….” However, I have enjoyed every moment of this course, and would recommend to anyone who has the slightest thought or strongest desire to train as a yoga teacher. The online yoga course covers so much, but with Victoria’s help, guidance, knowledge and patience you feel at ease throughout.
Jill, England 2021 Graduate

I would recommend StretchBodyMind to anyone looking to expand their yoga practice beyond the mat. This is more than teacher training, it’s a fully immersive experience into the history and practice of yoga. I have grown as a person and feel that I have benefitted, not just from a set curriculum of teachings, but from the wealth of knowledge and experience that the trainer possessed.
Angela, Scotland 2020 Graduate

I am completely satisfied with everything about my Yoga Teacher Training, also the amazing accomplishment of being able to complete our course during Covid-19 with still a high standard around-the-clock support, gaining skills and knowledge of teaching online is a bonus, with a professional and caring approach.
