Our teacher training course is an intimate one and completed on a one to one basis with Janet. There will be some additional interaction with other students so you can share your knowledge and learn from each other as well as the opportunity to practice your skills with real students in a safe and supportive environment.

Due to the intensity of the programme Janet will only take on 4 students per year and the course is completed during 12 months at a pace that suits you and your development.

This course focusses on the functional aspects of Hatha Yoga. The fact that we are all different physically and emotionally is at the heart of our Yoga Teacher Training Programme.

We structure our programme so that you will understand this concept anatomically using the system developed by Paul and Suzee Grilley in their internationally acclaimed Yin Yoga Teacher Training programme.

Janet will break down the fundamental poses so that you will understand the intention of each pose, how to pay attention to what is happening, and how to make adjustments according to what stops you. You will then be in a position to provide guidance to others using the same formula.

Janet will also encourage you to find your own unique teaching style as the course unfolds.
