Clinging to what is dear brings sorrow.
Clinging to what is dear brings fear.
To one who is entirely free from endearment,
There is no sorrow or fear.

About The Course

This course is comprised of 500 hours which is a combination of course contact time and home study. There are no formal requirements for this course, however, it is desirable that applicants show a high level of maturity and have a genuine interest in deepening their knowledge and experience in the field of yoga. Applicants should also have an interest in health and wellbeing together with a commitment to personal growth and holistic living. Applicants should have a sincere interest in working towards their own spiritual development and a willingness to journey into the deeper mysteries of life.

The Yoga Studies Hatha Yoga Practitioners course has been designed to allow practitioners of Yoga to receive quality education and training without the need to undertake extensive studies leading to a Yoga Teaching qualification. At Hampton Yoga Centre/VIYETT we understand that not all people seeking education and training in the field of Yoga want to teach Yoga as a profession. Often the need for further studies and training comes about when a student reaches a certain level of maturity in their practice and thus begins a journey to uncover the deeper meaning of yoga.

When the student reaches this level of maturity in their practice they often need guidance and training to assist them in broadening and developing their understanding of yoga and to help them move forward on their life path.

Yoga is a science of life and a path of personal development. Through the study of yoga one is able to gain deeper insight into life itself and equip oneself with the necessary skills to achieve lifetime goals. The yoga studies course presents yoga as a complete system drawing on the classical teachings and traditions of hatha yoga and the ancient traditions of tantric esoteric and philosophical teachings, Patanjali's eight limbs of yoga are also studied and integrated throughout the training. Participants will gain knowledge in all of the theoretical and practical aspects of yogic discipline.
