Pre-requisite: This course is primarily designed for existing yoga teachers, as an additional form. We also welcome teachers of other disciplines. C.P.D.
-The main part of these courses are held in South London with teacher Sherrie Peck. Sherrie is a senior instructor of The British School of Thai Yoga and Thai Massage, teaches classes in London + Dorset. She has her own Thai Massage and yoga practice in Beckenham. Exam w.e is based in Lyme Regis with Niclaire Skye. Accommodation can be arranged a few minutes from the beach and school.
-DVD and manual provided. As part of the course students must be prepared to attend 2 classes of TYY in addition to set dates. Within one month on completion of 7 day course students will need to arrange, present and teach a class as part of examination.
Course students will learn unique teaching skills required for this style of class, to attain and then re-tain a ‘meditative’ state throughout. After 4 classes your students should be able to do most of the class with their eyes closed. Thai Yoga is a flow of 100 movements, from one position to the next working ‘with’ gravity, using the breath to help facilitate timing so allowing time for the body to sink and relax into maximum stretch with no holding, working mainly on the floor. A harmony of breath + meditative movement. It has been described as ‘Tai Chi’ on the floor. Both teacher and student have said that it is ‘like no other style’ in the way Thai Yoga moves, releasing and opening – especially the hip flexors, pelvic girdle, lower back to Achilles tendon. Western style of sitting on chairs plus modern life patterns, has created a multitude of imbalances, misalignment and shallow breathing. The ‘not enough time’ stress factor has for many virtually disengaged the para sympathetic state which enables the body to become natural relaxed.
A Thai Yoga class develops listening skills, embraces universal energy, replenishes chi, re-minds the body not to hold, teaches patience to relax, allowing courage to go very deep. Gentleness with no competition. This style also welcomes those who maybe find standing postures too challenging, yet with TYY, are able to work alongside those more advanced. The ‘core pattern’ stays the same, so allowing class students to let go the need to think, lift their vibration into a meditative state, allow and RELEASE. As a teacher it is extremely satisfying to teach.
In 2011 ‘Thai Yoga’, it’s popularity now growing, moved into the ‘hot rooms’ in a well know South London sports venue, Breeze in Beckenham. We are constantly being asked “Where can we find a class in our area?” Hence the school needs to train more teachers. Let us all be able to put on our own socks at 90 plus :-)
