About the teacher training
This teacher training is a well-structured, intense, pragmatic, 5 day immersion into Embodied Yoga Principles for Yoga teachers.
Imagine offering your Yoga community something unique. A modern approach that creates deep personal insights and offers more choice in life.
You may be interested in EYP teacher trainings to:
Experience a deep dive into self-awareness and personal growth
Psychologically enrich your teaching to help students get their learning “off the mat”
Creative practice labs to explore flow sequences using EYP
Teach dedicated EYP classes and workshops
Join a supportive and dynamic international community
Learn postures that can be used as part of coaching & training outside of yoga
Have fun learning something new and unique .
This is a five day training across 2nd-6th October 2019 taking place in London, UK. There will be pre-coursework (mostly watching videos) and personal practice afterwards if you wish to officially qualify.
This experience 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.
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 senior teachers Jamie Abrams and Mayan Patel, often with a senior EYP teacher/s supporting.

LONDON TEACHER TRAINING
Nov 29 - Dec 3 2019, 10am - 5pm
TRAINERS/TEAM : Jamie Abrams, Mayan Patel
LOCATION : LONDON - VENUE: The Arc
See other locations and dates of EYP Trainings here
EYP is not for everyone so we like to see if it's a good fit ahead of the training. The application process involves:
• attending a class/workshop with an EYP teacher
(to get a taste of EYP if at all possible) see EYP EVENTS
(note if you are unable to attend an event before please contact Mayan as it may still be possible for you to attend)
• a phone chat to see if it’s a good fit (contact on right)
• 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.
