The British Wheel of Yoga is recognised by Sport England as the country's governing body of yoga. Before starting the teaching diploma, trainee teachers must first complete a 10 month foundation course and have been practicing yoga for at least two years. The teacher training course through the British Wheel of Yoga is a 500 hour course completed over nearly three years.
This in-depth course covers all aspects of yoga and ensures that yoga is taught safely and appropriately to all levels. Amy completed the British Wheel of Yoga teaching Diploma in Cornwall with experienced tutor Linda Morely.
Once fully qualified teachers have the opportunity to take additional specialist training modules. Amy has completed the British Wheel of Yoga pregnancy and postnatal yoga course with specialist tutor Wendy Teasdill, one of the country's leading specialists in pre and postnatal yoga.
To maintain the high standards expected of any British Wheel of Yoga teacher, all teachers are expected to attend regular CPD workshops. As a specialist teacher of pregnancy and postnatal yoga this also includes annual refresher training in these specialist areas of yoga. Amy is also a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
In recent years Amy has attended training with Lucy Crawford Scott on Ashtanga Yoga and the relationship between yoga and Cranial Sacral Therapy. This has sparked a real interest in CST, Bowen and anatomy. She is currently training with Gary Carter, one of the leading authorities on anatomy and fascia, completing his 12 month course on Anatomy and Movement for Yoga and Pilates teachers.
