21 Day Yoga Teacher Training.
TK Yoga has created a new 21day Yoga Teacher Training to comply with standards as set down by Yoga Alliance UK, accreditation services. Our love of yoga at TK has sought to build a good grounding in teaching methodology and understanding of the requirements that a teacher of Yoga will need to possess to be a safe (Ahimsa) and confident Yoga teacher. You will stay at our student accommodation nearby and enjoy the beautiful historic area of Suffolk in the UK.
We will work together to succeed and incorporate a multi style approach to learning and yoga disciplines. We will practice and study authentic Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa flow, and Yin Yoga. Our student led approach means that each student is valued for their own authentic and diverse teaching style. We support you during training and after training and we understand that your first teaching experience is going to be quite daunting, with this in mind we like our students to start to teach as soon as possible. At our busy studio there is plenty of scope to attend and teach the regular classes. Both Tina and Keely have over 5000 hours of teaching and will bring a wealth of understanding to your training. We very much promote the healing side of Yoga and how it can help in recovery. With this understanding we can lay down the foundations for our future Yoga Therapists.
