Irish Yoga Association
The IYA Teacher Training Course is a four year part-time
course (over 600 hours) that
seeks to provide the opportunity to
test the main philosophical premises, increasing awareness in all
aspects of the individual so that Yoga can become a practical way of
life rather than a practice to induce a state of mind that temporarily
eases unwanted states of mind. It aims to provide participants with the
knowledge, skill and attitude to teach Yoga. Course participants
are encouraged to teach after 2 years whilst having the support of
their peers and Tutors. The Course is fully comprehensive in that
it deals with the physical, emotional, mental, psychological and
spiritual aspects of Yoga in recognition of Yoga as a tool for self
development. Participants work continuously with two full-time
Tutors over the four years, together with visiting guest Tutors.
The Course includes Asana, Pranayama, Kriya, Mudra, Bandha, Meditation,
Philosophy, Anatomy & Physiology, First Aid, Teaching Practice,
Class Planning, Yoga for Children, Yoga in Pregnancy and Yoga in the
field of Mental Health. The
training explores classical and contemporary methods, in keeping with
Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the Hathayogapradipika.
The Course aims to produce Yoga
teachers who embody the principles of Yoga philosophy in their
lives and in their teaching.
The Course is accredited by the European Union of Yoga, enabling
diploma holders to teach throughout Europe.
Next course starts 14th September.
The IYA also offers a POST-GRAD
COURSE comprising six weekends and a residential week.
This course focuses on enhancing and deepening personal practice as
well as exploring various styles of teaching and delivery skills
through experiential learning. This course is open to those who hold a
valid Yoga Teaching Diploma (equivalent to a minimum of 200 hours
training) and who meet the standard of assessment day and interview.
