The ‘Works’ beyond the instructors

emnewteach2-bwOver the years the breadth and depth of programmes and topics has grown, changed, evolved. Many different approaches/methods of teaching/training/sharing have been explored and tested. Ashtanga Yoga was the ‘seed’, the core from which the current methodologies have grown. Today, within our framework the training is very much focused on individual needs and aspirations. Students are encouraged to have a personal Training Plan. This Training Plan is designed, monitored and tweaked with the help of a suitable Mentor.

It is worth to mention here that the words ‘teaching’ or ‘instructor’ are not strictly appropriate to reflect how we see helping people with their training. Krishnamurti said it very well when stating “you have to become your own teacher and your own disciple”. We are more facilitators of learning, mentors – not assuming the authoritative position of the ‘knower’ bestowing knowledge. Our job is more that of a doorman – opening the door, encouraging you to come in and find out for yourself what’s within…

People are learning and working at various levels – we have a wide range, yoga practitioners, trainee mentors, active teachers and yoga instructors cooperating, sharing knowledge and experience.

Some of our programmes are assisted by trainee instructors and mentors, so those attending get more attention and adjustments to make sure they learn the postures and movements safely and correctly, while the trainees/apprentices gain valuable hands-on experience in adjusting and instructing. When apprentices complete their training and set up their own training groups, they continue to have the support of their own mentor.

Our work is developing locally, UK-wide and internationally, sharing the methodology with willing groups and individuals in Hungary, Poland and Estonia, with more to come…

People come to the courses, workshops and teacher training from many different backgrounds and with great variety of experience – suitable level of learning can be provided for most people.
