Our Yoga Hero Teacher Training Course will focus on safety first; how to help students modify for their energy levels, strength and flexibility at each moment. A focus on safety throughout each practice keeps both student and instructor mindful and present.
Secondary to that is improvement; personal, professional, mental and physical improvement. At Yoga Hero, we believe every time you step on your yoga mat; it’s a hero move. It can be easy to turn on the telly, or go to the pub, so the decision to yoga or meditation instead, is the work of a hero! Every time you decide to do your yoga, or your meditation, or both, it’s a huge contribution towards that continual improvement.
We all have strength to build, or patience to cultivate, or philosophy to learn, or alignment to understand. As Yoga Heroes, understanding and respecting this is stage 1, and working towards your own personal and professional improvement is stage 2; which lasts a lifetime.
