This Foundation Level course is based upon and is a continuation of the preceding Discovery Level course. This Foundation course has it own new syllabus and takes you further along the path as a yoga teacher.
The three week Foundation course, combined with the one week Discovery course qualifies you for the international Yoga Alliance 200 hour registration. When you have successfully completed both courses you may register with the YA and professionally use the letters RYT200 after your name.
This Course is based on the unique Knoff Yoga Principles of:
- Cardinal Directions
- Earth/Heaven Extension
- Spiralic Action
- Reciprocal Inhibition
- Body Proportions
- Creating Space
- Balancing Ha/Tha
- Synchronising Breath & Movement
- Balancing Strength & Flexibility
- Effortless Effort
- Five Elements
The Foundation Asana, Pranayama & Meditation syllabus consists of:
- Earth & Sun Salutations
- 4 Inverted Poses (heating)
- 9 Standing Poses
- 2 Arm Balancings
- 7 Forward Bends
- 5 Sitting Poses
- 2 Abdominals
- 3 Twists
- 6 Backbends
- 4 Inverted Poses (cooling)
- 9 Pranayama
- Breath focused Meditation
The Anatomy syllabus covers the basics of movement, muscles and bones and is taught with direct application to the yoga postures. The Philosophy looks at What Is Yoga, Ten Fundamental Principles of Yoga In Praise of the Philosophical Life, Why Study Yoga Philosophy, The Seven Steps of Psychospiritual Maturation, A Bird’s-Eye View of the History of Yoga, and Yoga Sutras Chanting. Combined with the Discovery syllabus, you now have enough information, knowledge and skills to teach yoga competently and successfully for many years to come. Your certification only allows you to teach what is specifically prescribed in this course. When you are ready to learn more and broaden your knowledge base, we have another 7 Levels of Teacher Training waiting. Students who do not wish to teach may also attend the course to intensively deepen their practice and grow their yoga knowledge. You will receive a Teacher Training Workbook, Foundation Asana Manual and a Foundation Teaching Certificate (if you pass the course).
To join the Foundation Course, you are required to have successfully completed the Level 1 – Discovery Course. Please see HOW TO APPLY in this brochure for full details of the application process.
When you satisfactorily complete the course requirements, you will be awarded with the professional credential of a ‘Teaching Certificate’ Level 3 – Foundation. Otherwise, you will be awarded with a ‘Statement of Attendance’, providing you attend all classes and complete all assignments. The Level 3 – Foundation Teacher Training certificate is valid for 3 years. For certificate renewal information see the section ‘How to Renew Your Teaching Certificate’ in the link Teacher Training – Tell Me More. On completion of this three-week intensive course, students/teacher trainees have the opportunity to study other Knoff Yoga courses.
