Email your interest! After 12 years of continuous training, these courses are on pause….but stay tuned!

In any given class, most yoga teachers will have at least one student who is working with an injury-yet many teachers have no idea how to modify postures to prevent making things worse, far less how to provide therapeutic sequences.

On this training, Senior Yoga Teacher, Teacher Trainer and Yoga Therapist Flo Fenton will show you how to clearly categorise what phase of injury students are in, and how to work beneficially in that phase to promote healing. We will look at common injuries and health conditions including back pain, shoulder strain, bulging discs and how to alleviate stress and anxiety.

At the same time, we will strengthen and deepen our own practice of asana, pranayama and meditation.

Who Is this Training For?

This training is for you if you have completed your level 1 200 or 350 hours accredited training and want to deepen your skills, broaden your client base, immerse in authentic asana, pranayama and meditation practice, and really understand how to teach yoga for special needs.

This training is for you if you care about quality, integrity and depth of learning, and if you are concerned about how well regarded your teacher and your teacher training is in yoga circles.

What will I Learn or Gain?

If you can be open minded, you will earn an entirely new approach to yoga practice and teaching!

Intouch Yoga Teacher Training will teach you how to work with yoga not just as a physical exercise, but as it was intended, as a way of accessing prana, the life force. This approach enables you to fine tune and greatly enhance not just your own practice, but to make your teaching accessible, beneficial and unique to each individual student.

You will learn how to assess, manage and provide beneficial programs for students with common injuries at every stage of the injury/healing process

You will learn to teach one on one and in groups in a way that is specific to the needs of each individual, which enables you to work with a much broader range of clients-and also makes your work deeply satisfying!

This training is now offered in multiple formats!

• Fully face to face-part time, one day a fortnight (Thursdays)

• Live Online via zoom link up one day a fortnight (Thursdays)

• Flexible online learning (watch pre-recorded sessions in your own time) for up to 11 of 14 training days

“This course will provide you with all the skills, confidence and understanding to create a rewarding career in yoga teaching at a deeper level. Most importantly though, I will share with you knowledge tools and the experience of doing your life in a deeper, more connected, more satisfying way.”-Flo Fenton.
