Program

Zenways believes becoming a yoga teacher is about your personal journey, understanding, and inner confidence. Rather than orientating their course around their way, they instead orientate themselves around your path. On your yoga teacher training course, they focus on giving you the principles and techniques to equip you for a lifetime of exploring, developing, and teaching.

  • Gain a comprehensive tool kit that allows you to find your true expression and develop as a teacher for the rest of your life
  • The intensive, total immersion process supports a deep, transformational journey, giving you rich experience to teach from. Recent studies have also shown this intensive format to be the most efficient way to learn. The course will leave you excited and feeling ready to teach.
  • The course is uniquely based on the Yogacara (yoga practice) philosophy of Mahayana Buddhism and was written by Zen master Daizan Skinner based on wisdom gained from over 25 years of Zen and yoga study.
  • Accredited by the worldwide standards body Yoga Alliance and the Independent Yoga Network. Graduates are eligible to join REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) level 3.
  • Join a growing family of over 200 Zenways teachers who have trained with them in the 10 years since this course began.
  • To train with them, you will need a minimum of two years of regular yoga practice (or equivalent).

The Zenways yoga teacher training course gives you the knowledge and confidence to teach yoga professionally in a range of paces and styles with correct alignment and mindfulness. Both flow styles and non-continuous styles are covered. They put a big emphasis on acquiring practical teaching skills that will be of use in the classroom setting.

In addition, you will learn many aspects to explore and develop in your own practice because they believe that the key to a fulfilling and successful yoga career is your own vibrant and sustaining practice. The course content includes a broad range of history, philosophy, asana practice, and teaching theory and practice. Everything is oriented around teaching and getting you to be your best teacher.

On the practical side, you will be learning about

  • Yoga asanas (postures and flows, including a two-hour daily master-class)
  • Pranayama and Qigong (breathing methods and energy work)
  • Meditation and relaxation techniques, how to practice them, and how they relate to yoga practice, including an hour of guided meditation at the beginning and end of each day
  • Mudras (the yoga of gesture)
  • Spontaneous (or natural) yoga
  • Verbal and communication skills including voice work to motivate, uplift, and relax your students.

On the theory side, you will be studying

  • Safety and contraindications
  • Physical anatomy and physiology. This gives you a fundamental understanding of what correct alignment actually means. *Physiology covers the effects of yoga practices, their benefits, and their contraindications. All anatomy and physiology are taught with direct relevance to yoga and are not merely textbook learning
  • Learning to adjust with awareness and sensitivity. They combine the latest flexibility research with some simple adjustment techniques to create a powerful tool for helping your students’ yoga practice
  • Energetic anatomy and the Chinese five-element system
  • History of yoga in the Indian, Tibetan, Chinese, and Japanese traditions and its influence on modern yoga
  • Philosophy, including basic Buddhist philosophy and a comparison between the Vedic/Hindu and Buddhist approaches (e.g. eight-limbs of yoga versus noble eightfold path)
  • Ethics
  • Business methods (including how to set up your business, where to find work, and how much to charge)
