As part of the course the Teachers in Training ( TTs) will have to acquire experience in Observing, Assisting and Teaching in group classes. The benefit of being part of this program is that there is great flexibility as well as opportunity for the Teacher Trainees to either observe/assist their own teachers or one of the Aditya Yoga School team. Me and Mentors (from the current and past years ) are all established teachers in London so Teacher Trainees will have of choice for fulfilling their Teaching Experience hrs with Yoga Alliance approved Teachers.
Yoga Alliance offers insurance to TTs for very low cost so that they have the opportunity to teach their own classes in a safe manner even before they get their certificate.
Aditya Yoga School has an ongoing yearly Apprenticeship program ( Assistant) that allows one to two newly qualified Teachers to assist me in my public classes / workshops / events. Also, as part of the School, i offer a yearly Mentorship program that allows two to four Alumni of the school to mentor on the RYS 200 Course.
In exchange for the commitment to assisting or mentoring the Alumni on the program will gain insights and practice their teaching skills and refine their teaching techniques. This program is offered as free continued education and allows you to expand the learning beyond the course and to build your confidence as a teacher with intelligence and invaluable experience acquired in the field.
