Teacher Training

What We Offer

Jamie Yoga Teacher Training is great for all people who love Ashtanga Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow yoga. We do not require you to have years of practice or an advanced practice to become an Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher of our re-imagined Modified Primary Series. Jamie Blowers our founder and Dr Sumi Chattejee our Anatomy lecturer have developed effective methods over the years to support and nurture our trainees towards their highest teaching potential.

When you first start your journey as a teacher of yoga you will mainly teach beginners. The Jamie Yoga teacher training course focuses on developing your skills so that you excel at teaching beginner and intermediate classes.

When you can teach a beginner well, you can retain your students and build a secure student base and a secure income from your love of sharing Yoga!

While training to become a teacher of yoga we will challenge and guide you to develop personally, reflect on your teaching and become critical thinkers and analyse poses. This is done through rigorous discussions along with lectures and group sharing to bring about sometimes profound and often remarkable awakenings, of emotional confidence and intellectual clarity.

 

Jamie Yoga teacher training addresses the big difference between being an outstanding Practitioner and being an outstanding teacher. Teaching Yoga is all about the students and less about you and your practice. Developing a deep understanding of Asana Alignment themes and the correlation between the traditional Practice and how that has been transmitted to the Western Practice is Key. What is appropriate for diverse populations of students and how to retain a keen eye and a fresh personal, inventive approach is fundamental to being an outstanding teacher. You can rely on our ‘themes of alignment’, and their facilitation, ‘First identify, then isolate and dynamically activate’, to assist and support you in facilitating any teaching situation.

Jamie yoga training is for those seeking to celebrate their Western lifestyle and values while embracing useful parts of the precious innovations that the East has passed to us through Yoga. Here at Jamie Yoga we achieve an alchemy of ‘bests’ best of Western and of Eastern yoga traditions, in bringing Westerners an essentially Eastern Innovation, but from a Western Perspective. We look at the multi-layered benefits of Yoga Practice through a scientific lens and adopt an ambivalent interest in the Occult ideas of kundalini and pranic ‘energy’ for instance. Interpreting for today’s practitioner and future practitioners that will not be satisfied with fuzzy yoga platitudes and vague notions of Yoga’s multi-layered benefits and contemporary history.

We will teach you the fascinating history and introduce the ancient philosophy and then invite you to interpret these subjects for yourself through critical thinking, discussion and consideration of the practical application. Safely and carefully training your ‘know how’ to guide your future students’ towards physical, psychological and emotional wellness. Through transparent teaching and education, anatomical literacy and practical skill, rather than through emulation of misunderstood ancient and occult ideas, ideas that had died out in their mother country and only enjoyed a New Age renaissance in the West in the 19th and 20th centuries.
