Embodied Yoga Principles Teacher Training Dubai 2018
About the EYP Teacher Training
The EYP teacher training is a well-structured, intense, pragmatic, 4-day immersion into Embodied Yoga for people wishing to grow personally and use EYP professionally. You may be interested in EYP teacher trainings for one or more of several reasons.
Come if you'd like :
a deep dive into self-awareness and personal growth
to develop new aspects of your yoga practice & teaching, that's deep yet practical
to use elements of EYP to psychologically enrich your own yoga classes and help students get their learning "off the mat"
to teach dedicated EYP classes
to join a supportive dynamic international community
to learn postures that can be used as part of coaching & training outside of yoga
to have fun learning something new and unique
It consists of four days, some pre-coursework (mostly watching videos)
and personal practice afterwards if you wish to officially qualify.
The training is as much about developing as a person as it is about picking up new techniques and the principles themselves, so you can practice EYP in your own creative way.
Because Embodied Yoga is a set of principles rather than a style, it can add a new dimension to any approach to practice and be used creatively.
The training is not to be taken lightly as involves some work and much personal challenge. It will be deep, fun, personally and professionally enriching, but not all easy.
It is taught by EYP founder Mark Walsh, senior teacher Vidyadasa (Ady Griffiths) and with guest EYP teachers supporting.
people experienced in any style of yoga looking to add a whole new dimension to their practice and deepen their personal awareness and growth
people already qualified to teach any style of yoga looking to add elements of depth, pragmatism and breadth from other embodied arts that they teach
those looking to be able to teach EYP as a stand-alone class
(no guarantee, see below)
those up for a challenging emotional journey
people with a sense of humour (vital for the training)
people who care about social issue and the world beyond the mat
people looking to join a community of like-minded teachers working non-dogmatically and creatively in an emerging field.

EYP is not for everyone so we like to see if it's a good fit ahead of the training. The application process involves :
• a Skype phone call to see the course is suitable
• full or half payment upfront
(non-refundable except in case of family emergency)
NB: This training is quite deep/intense and not everyone is ready to lead EYP classes, or in a good place for the training personally. We’d recommend not applying if you are not well emotionally resourced currently, have active mental health issues or have suffered a recent major loss. If that all sounds a bit scary we'd also note that while tiring all past TT's have been loads of fun!
Notes on qualification given
If candidates wish to teach EYP classes after the course they should also have a recognised 200hr yoga teaching qualification or equivalent. There will also be a (fairly relaxed) exam, an element of continual assessment on the course, some light reading and videos watching (max 5 books and 5 hours) and further personal development recommendations to qualify as a full EYP teacher.
Being an EYP teacher requires considerable emotional maturity and facilitation skills quite different from regular asana classes and we take this seriously. It is not guaranteed you will pass to the level of full EYP teacher qualification and if you do there are certain ethical and branding standards for EYP teachers (available on request). All participants will learn elements of EYP however that they can incorporate into existing classes that they teach irrespective.
This is the 3rd publicly offered EYP teacher-training in the UK,(there have been other teacher trainings in Lithuania and the Ukraine (contact us for information about other countries, or to host a training your country).
