Where can it take you?

This course was developed by our UK Dru International Training Centre as a ground breaking course that equips Yoga Teachers to work with the UK National Health Service within the context of the new "Social Prescribing" model that has been operating in the UK for only the last couple of years.  The Australian government is in the process of evaluating the benefit of utilising the UK Social Prescribing model for use here, so knowing how it works will be a definite advantage. More organisations/workplaces in Australia are looking for back care and/or wellbeing programs particularly in the post COVID environment to support their staff with their mental wellbeing. 

  • This course will revolutionise the way you’re teaching your current yoga classes
  • You will gain confidence to start teaching in companies or other workplace settings
  • You will be equipped to teach specialised back care programs 
  • Be at the cutting edge of the trend towards yoga complementing the medical system. 

Some of the UK course tutors are part of UK national workgroup setting standards for social prescribing.

How will the course be delivered?

I particularly enjoyed the bhima warrior posture and the vitality sequence. Also the story and explanation of stretches and muscles. Diaphragm exercise one I will definitely be doing.

If you are thinking of doing the teacher training course, I would say just do it. You get more flexibility and knowledge of yoga, find peace in yourself with the ability to pass it on to others. Each one you meet knows there is something about you with a readience of peace and confidence around you. 'Find your inner light of peace'.
