Shortly after the first lockdown began in 2020, we launched our first-ever Foundations of Yoga online series to give people the opportunity to take a closer look at the practice that we all love so much. The response from the HPY community was overwhelming, so we’re very happy to announce that we’re running a second course for anyone who missed the first one.
The course has been designed for all levels, from complete beginners to those considering becoming yoga teachers themselves, or even existing teachers who want to refresh their knowledge. Over the four weeks, we will take a holistic approach and look at all aspects of yoga, including its history and philosophy, in order to gain a greater understanding of what we do on the mat and its impact on the body and mind.
The series will run over four weeks, starting on Monday, 25 January, and will be taught by Hotpod Lead Teachers Elodie Frati and Siân Goff. Each two-hour session will be a mix of theory and practice, exploring areas such as breathing techniques, meditation and mindfulness, the physical and mental body, and basic asanas (postures) – learning how to do them safely and effectively. All sessions will be recorded for those who can’t make it at the exact time of the course, and will be sent out by email the day after each session.
At just £100 for the course, we hope this will be an accessible way for our community to enrich their understanding of yoga. While the course will not provide an official accreditation of any kind, it’s a great way to dive deeper into yoga and build on your practice. For anyone considering a 200hr Teacher Training Course, this is the perfect starting point, and for those who go on to book a 200hr course with us, the price of the online series will be credited towards the overall course fee.
