200-Hour Vinyasa Mixed Teacher Training 2024 with Edward Chow ( Assisted by Joyce Chan & Joyce Fan ) (混合級別流動瑜伽導師培訓)

28 September-24 November Lincoln House – Quarry Bay

This Vinyasa-centred training is designed to elevate your teaching and practice. It includes an in-depth analysis of Asanas, Vinyasa, and transitions of poses. You will also learn techniques on how to instruct and adjust poses safely and effectively. 

 

This training will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to become both a skilled practitioner and a knowledgeable teacher, with a deeper understanding of Vinyasa practice, and the various elements of yoga that go beyond the Asanas. 

 

Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing teachers and dedicated practitioners to gain an in-depth understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the outcomes of yoga practice.

Prior to his 2006 venture into teaching yoga, Edward had been running his family's business.
 Despite his desire to engage in regular physical activity, the demands of his work left him exhausted.

 

After his very first yoga class, he felt the true impact of practising yoga. It not only energised him physically, but also mentally grounded him. This experience prompted him to begin his yoga journey. He registered as a RYT-500 yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance in 2011.

 

Edward enjoys teaching energetic Vinyasa-style yoga and providing his students with alignment cues through hands-on adjustments. He wants his students to walk out of his class feeling more connected to their practice and in a state of physical and mental equilibrium.

 

He is particularly grateful for guidance given to him by Andrey Lappa (Founder of Universal Yoga) and Sharon Gannon and David Life (Founders of Jivamukti Yoga).

Will I be able to teach right after I graduate from this programme?
Yes. All the course materials taught in this course prepare students with all the foundational knowledge and skills needed to become yoga teachers. Some students take it to deepen their own personal practice, kick-start a life transformational experience, while others do it to immediately start a teaching career. Others who do not want to proceed into teaching immediately would immerse into further trainings. More than half the students from our graduate programmes begin teaching friends, family, moving into part-time teaching in studios and then full-time teaching.
 
Will I be able to teach at PURE Yoga after graduating from this programme?
P
URE Yoga is always open to applications and supports graduates from our programmes. We do have many teachers at PURE Yoga currently that are previous graduates. While we encourage graduates to apply with us, there is never a guarantee of job placement due to availability of openings or space within our studios. However, any graduates that apply with us are kept in our database and are advised if there are openings available.
 
Will PURE Yoga help with my Yoga Alliance application?
Upon successful graduation of our teacher training programmes, PURE Yoga will send the students a link to where they can apply for the Yoga Alliance certification. Our programmes and our school are Yoga Alliance accredited, meaning that students graduating from our programmes will “automatically” be approved when they apply to Yoga Alliance. From there, students will take their own steps in applying for Yoga Alliance – whether you are applying for 200-hour certification, 500-hour or so forth.
 
If I miss one day, will I be able to make up for it?
Students undergoing this programme must be fully committed and understand that 100% full attendance is required. They must also be willing to forgo most other personal or professional commitments for the duration of the programme – only with 100% attendance and completion of the course will students receive a certificate and no make-up of work will be given. Should there be any problems with this, students must speak with the faculty prior to the course and only under very special circumstances will it be considered.
 
Will I receive a certificate after the programme?
Upon successful completion, 100% attendance, and following the code of conduct – students will receive a Certificate of Completion from PURE Yoga for this teacher training programme.
