Level 1 teacher training




Falmouth Course Snapshot.  Our next course will begin in November 2018, see details below. 

Taught by Keren Cooksey (SYT Yoga Alliance), our 250-hour vinyasa course is devoted to excellence, exploration, creativity and community. Designed for those who want to embark on the journey of becoming a teacher or for teachers who want to enhance their skills, our teacher training program will equip you with a comprehensive set of tools so that you flourish as both an informed practitioner and creative teacher of yoga. This takes time, effort, and commitment.

Our training takes place over the course of a year. The full Teacher Training Program comprises 10 weekends, and meets Yoga Alliance’s requirement for certification at their 200 hour level. The course is suitable for people with at least 2 years regular yoga practice and a proven commitment to further developing their understanding of yoga.

Keren has been teaching for over 15 years and has been running teacher training courses for over 6 years both here and in her Brisbane studio, in total she has trained over a 100 teachers and she LOVES IT. Each year Keren also brings in external senior teachers to enrich the course and provide the trainees with a new way of looking at things – in the past this has included the amazing Kelly Kamm from New York, Tamara James from Australia, Jacqulynn St Pierre from Austin, Texas and Josh Michaell from San Fran. Keren feels very fortunate in her own yoga journey to have trained with some of the most inspiring teachers the world over and will continue to lure those teachers to Falmouth to inspire the students here.

And please note, while this course is predominately a vinyasa teacher training, Keren will share with you the depth of her teaching from a variety of style including Hatha, Kundalini, Jivamukti and Anusara to ensure you leave the course able to teach any body 

What you can therefore expect from this teacher training is a rich, varied, fun, challenging year that will encourage you to look at yoga and yourself in new ways and hopefully will be the start of a journey into yoga that will last a lifetime.
