We have been practicing yoga since 1996 and leading teacher trainings since 2008. All these years of experience have contributed to a strong curriculum of theory and practice in all aspects of yoga, meant to give our students a thorough and solid base for teaching and practicing with confidence and skill.

All of the TFY Teacher Trainings are structured around three pillars: Anatomy, Philosophy and Practice.

Anatomy

Understanding the body is understanding the poses

Anatomy study is much more than learning the names of bones and muscles. By understanding how bodies can and cannot move we become able to practice and teach the poses safely and efficiently.

We teach functional anatomy, scientifically proving that bodies are unique in their structure and constitution, which means that poses may look different on different people because of this uniqueness. When you know what a pose should be doing for you – the function of a pose – you will be able to adapt and adjust it to suit your body and the bodies of your students. This leads to a practice that is safe, creative and delicious for everybody.

Philosophy

Observing your mind is the only way towards real change

Yoga philosophy is not a purely intellectual exercise, nor the study of ancient and stuffy texts that bear no relevance to our modern lives. In fact, it is quite the opposite: yoga philosophy brings inspiration, guidance, insight, understanding, comfort, support and freedom to our lives. It touches our heart and soul, reminding us of truths we already know but have forgotten.

Fundamental to this process is the practice of meditation, which has a place of honour in our own personal practice and in our teachings; regularly taking some silent time within ourselves is the key to becoming aware of ancient patterns of behaviour that hold us back from being who we actually want to be. That’s why it is said that yoga is the science of Self-realization: realizing who you truly are will melt away sorrow and suffering.

Practice

All theories can sound great on paper but they are only valuable when they are practiced. Our teacher Paul Grilley says it well “if a theory inspires you to practice, it is a good theory. If it doesn’t, it is not”.

That’s why our trainings are a mix of both; we study anatomy and then test the premises in our own bodies and on our colleagues’; we study philosophy and then observe our own minds during asana practice and meditation.

Then we take what we have observed in practice and study it. What can we learn from our experience? In this way, yoga is always alive, meaningful and true. Both to ourselves and to our students.

This training offers an intense program of functional anatomy, technique and analysis of the yin yoga poses, theory of the chakras and their relevance in our lives, meditation techniques, exploration of yoga philosophical concepts and lots of practice. The 200 hour program additionally offers an introduction to meridians and the anatomy of the upper body. This is an intense program meant to deepen our understanding and knowledge.
