Yoga Teacher Training Course Objectives
- Have a sound foundational knowledge of modern and yogic anatomy
- Teach a 60 minute shortened Ashtanga Primary or Ashtanga based Vinyasa Flow lesson to your peers including
- Pranayama and Meditation
- Develop your Yoga Asana and Pranayama practice, increasing strength, flexibility and focus
- Be familiar with the main teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras
- Learn about different aspects of yogic lifestyle, such as Ayurveda and Kriyas
- Asana Practice
Your morning asana class will be focused on learning the Ashtanga Primary Series as a foundation for your development as teachers. The first 2 weeks of your yoga teacher training you will be led through the whole series by your lead teacher and you will also be adjusted and corrected by the assistant. When the group is ready, you will transition into the more traditional self practice style of Ashtanga Yoga.
The practice is geared towards both experienced Ashtangis and those not so familiar with the series. Self practice is not only an excellent way to work with our students individually, but also great for those with less experience to familiarise themselves with a practice they can safely and confidently perform without guidance upon completion of the course.
Practice on Tuesdays and Fridays will be Vinyasa flow with a specific aim or theme. For example, classes could focus on arm balancing or working towards Hanumanasana. These classes will serve as an excellent example for those that want to develop their teaching in the style of Vinyasa Flow.
Your morning practice will also be supported by evening workshops which will give us time to break down and discuss different techniques and answer any personal queries you may have. These workshops will include; arm balancing, back bending and transitions.
There will also be time for some more restorative practices such as yin yoga and ball release to complement you learning experience.
Pranayama and Meditation
Within your pranayama and meditation session you will be guided through basic pranayama (breathing) techniques. By the end of the yoga teacher training course we will have developed your own sequence of pranayama techniques that you will be able to self practice and take away with you into the world.
Breath is our bridge between the mental and physical, the subtle and tangible parts of our being. Pranayama’s benefits, when practiced regularly are significant and can transform your mental clarity and self control.
We treat pranayama as a meditation on the breath, as a tool to focus our mind and balance our emotional state. During the first week of pranayama, as we slowly guide you through the techniques, we will also use visualisation and mindfulness techniques that will help you to focus and build your meditation practice.
Theory classes will explain the benefits accompanying these breathing and meditation techniques enabling you to practice effectively during guided classes.
Anatomy and Alignment
The anatomy and alignment module is a key part of our yoga teacher training course and it is structured through the Ashtanga Primary Series, working through the alignment and anatomical activity of forward folds, twists, backbends and the rest! This module opens up the internal workings of the body and allows students to gain a deeper understanding into function and purpose.
Rather than being occupied with how a posture looks we want you to gain the wisdom of how the postures functions in your own body and in the bodies of others, there’s no one size fits all! This class is also an excellent opportunity to explore your own practice and learn the suitable modifications for your own body and others.
This module will also help you to retain the sanskrit names of the postures and the order of the primary series so that you have a refined and integrated ashtanga self-practice.
For those that are interested in developing their understanding of Vinyasa Flow yoga, there will be a workshop dedicated to postures that appear outside of the Ashtanga Primary Series so you get a well rounded knowledge of all the asana types.
Teaching Methodology and Practicum
This module within our yoga teacher training focuses on the skills needed to become a successful, engaging and adaptable yoga teacher. The class centres around peer led feedback and practical activities so that you begin to teach in the very first lesson. Topics covered within this module include; creative sequencing, use of voice, clear cueing, demonstration, inclusivity and language. Unlike other courses, our teacher training equips all our graduates with the skills to teach after the course.
By the end of the module you will have a one hour yoga class that you will have practiced and refined. You can choose a set template class that has already been designed or you can create your own sequence with the help of your teacher.
The template option can be a very good way for those wishing to focus more towards Ashtanga or for those who are less confident with English as a first language to feel confident when they teach.
Whichever option you choose, this module will give you a strong class to teach that you will be able to take with you wherever you go and adapt accordingly to your students. You will also have the tools and knowledge to be able to design and plan a range of classes, based on different themes and geared to different levels.
Yoga Philosophy and Ayurveda
Philosophy class will focus on The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, covering the main sutras within the first 2 chapters. We will also explore the 8 limbs as understood in both a traditional and contemporary context by comparing different commentaries and interpretations. Special focus will be given to the yamas and niyamas, the ethical code of the 8 limb system and how we can interpret these teachings into our lives as students and teachers.
It is important that the philosophical teachings of yoga are integrated with the physical practice, in order to gain and experience the real benefits.
There will also be 2 Ayurveda classes during the first part of the yoga teacher training. These classes are a great introduction to the vast science of Ayurveda and gives you a taste of some of the routines and rituals you can incorporate into your life on and off the mat to find even more balance.

Lascel De La’ Bruvs
Lascel was born in Whitechapel in London’s East End. It was during his studies as a keen Music Technology student that a traumatic life changing event eventually led him to his passion for teaching yoga (read Lascel’s story by following the link below).
Originally trained as a Hot Hatha Yoga Instructor at Bikram’s Yoga College of India in L.A. Lascel then went on to share his passion for teaching the world famous 26/2 set sequence far and wide. Initially teaching all over the U.K. he then lived life as a traveling teacher, teaching in Europe, The USA, Australia, Asia and eventually India.
It was on a return trip from Australia Lascel was presented with an opportunity to retrain under Michelle Pernetta, one of the UK’s most established, experienced senior teachers.
He went on to become a regular on the schedule at studios across London for the hugely popular brand of dynamic, modern, inclusive yoga at “Fierce Grace”. A growing interest in the philosophy and foundations of yoga as a whole, as well as a continued and growing interest in the modern western interpretation and anatomical focus of asana, eventually led him to take an impulsive extended one way trip to India.
He traveled and taught for a few months and eventually enrolled on another teacher training in South Goa. After completing an advanced 300 hour course in modern Ashtanga Vinyasa, Lascel stayed on at the school initially as an assistant teacher for the 200 hour teacher training course to fully immerse himself in his new found love for Ashtanga, Pranayama, Meditation and Yogic Anatomy. He soon went on to becoming a lead teacher on the 300 hour teacher training course that he had completed prior.
Having experienced first hand both the huge physical but more importantly psychological benefits that can come with a yoga practice, Lascel is passionate about sharing these benefits with as many people as possible. He believes that yoga should be accessible for all from the die hard, daily, borderline obsessive intense practitioner of all things yoga, to the guy that heard after 20 years as a plasterer and 4 pints at his local, that a spot of yoga might sort his shoulder out.
Lascel’s 1000+ hours in various teacher trainings, along with many years of experience as a full time teacher assisting practitioners of all abilities and dispositions, along with his continued passion for his own practice and continued learning is what inspires him to teach from the heart in a compassionate, dynamic, fun and inclusive style.
Morwenna discovered Ashtanga Yoga whilst training as a dancer at The Laban Centre in London, it soon became apart of her life, developing alongside her career as a dance teacher, eventually over taking it all together. Drawing from her dance background and yoga experience, she teaches flowing Vinyasa Classes with creative transitions and dynamic sequencing.
Imaginative cueing allows her students to gain greater insight into their individual body alignments and develop a deeper awareness of their own physicality.
During her 3 years living and training in India she was introduced to Ayurveda and The Philosophy of Yoga, which has now become an important influence in her life and teaching. Especially Ayurvedic diet and routine. She feels that Yoga and Ayurveda together form a complete approach for optimal health, vitality and higher awareness that can lead to greater transformation in your practice, your health and your awareness of others.
Just like yoga it is a lifelong learning process that is only improved through practice and experience.Teachers, yoga and people of all kinds continue to inspire and fuel the development of her practice, teaching and exploration of yoga.

Both Morwenna and Lascel have years of experience in teaching yoga teachers and this shines across not only in their taught classes but also in the way that their yoga teaching methodologies which in turn helped us to learn how to teach.
