BWYT Teacher Training Diploma Course
A 500 hour course leading to a national occupational standard can take between two and four years to complete. Students explore a practical and theoretical syllabus that covers: anatomy and physiology (including common medical conditions), pranayama, history and philosophy of yoga and class management.
To be accepted onto a BWY Teaching Diploma course students will have practised yoga for over two years and will often have completed the BWY Foundation Course as well.
"Monica does more than train you to teach yoga postures. She supports your development as both a human and spiritual being. You learn a lot. It's challenging, inspiring and fun. I have taught yoga as a result of doing the course and it has helped me be more effective as a group facilitator".

BWYT Certificate In Teaching Yoga
The aim of the Certificate course is to equip you both professionally and practically to teach yoga asanas, breathing practices and relaxation with a wide variety of capacity and experience;
The qualification is gained by completion of 5 Units of Learning which are taught concurrently. The course is a combination of Tutor-led contact days and home study. In addition there is a requirement for a qualification in anatomy and physiology either by completion of the BWY home study course ‘Essential Anatomy and Physiology for Yoga’ or other equivalent study. You will be asked to visit the website to complete the Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology Course either before you begin the Certificate Course, or during the first three months of the course. Students explore a practical and theoretical syllabus that covers: anatomy and physiology (including common medical conditions), brief history and philosophy of yoga and class management.
All BWYT Certificate Course Tutors follow the same syllabus, but each DCT brings their own experience and knowledge to the course. This course puts an emphasis on the practical aspect of yoga
BWYT Foundation Course
A 60 hour course designed to explore yoga in more depth than you would get in an average class. It includes practical and theoretical work on the eight limbs of Patanjali's Yoga sutras Chapter Two e.g. asana, pranayama, concentration, and meditation as well as topics such as the history of Yoga, and the different paths and schools of yoga.
It is intended for students who would like to develop their knowledge of yoga further and also for those wanting to train as teachers to provide them with the basics and introduction to the BWY diploma course.
"To this day I am enoormously grateful to both Monica and Chrissie in training me to become a Yoga teacher.
From the start it was obvious that they required a high degree of input from each Student expecting our very best effort at all stages of the course. Whilst this was incredibly demanding it ensured that no stone was left unturned in my training, which after all, was exactly the objective. I learnt so much.
To their tutelage, Monica and Chrissie brought a wealth of experience, knowledge and wisdom which I value and use in myriad ways. Even now, I love attending their workshops for what they still have to teach me and over the years, I have learnt to value their friendship too. You’ll be lucky to have them as your Diploma Course Tutors".
