What to expect from this training
All students will learn to apply contemporary science, anatomy, sports medicine, and injury management strategies to help them teach smart, safe, physically sustainable asana-based classes that are appropriate for modern practitioners. One homework assignment will focus on injury-management in common injuries for yoga practitioners. Participants will learn how to teach a set sequence, and homework will also teach students to write their own sequences and build a comprehensive teaching curriculum, using a guided methodology for planning classes.
Certification will be based on a two-part examination: practical, in which the trainee teaches a full 60-minute class to other YTT participants with assessors in the room; and written. Participants will also be expected to complete the two homework assignments and do independent reading before and during the course (30 non-contact hours).

Becky took her first yoga class at a local gym in 2004, shortly after moving from America to England to attend graduate school. For several years, she practiced Sivananda yoga to help balance the stresses of graduate school. She later discovered dynamic vinyasa yoga, which remains her passion. Becky considers herself a yoga “mutt,” and she has studied and takes inspiration from many diverse styles and schools of yoga (including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Dharma, power, and Jivamukti), but she is proud to remain independent from any “brand” or school of yoga.
Becky is fortunate to have trained with the very best teachers across the globe. She is proud to be an advanced student (500-hr YTT) of Jason Crandell, who remains her main mentor and inspiration. She completed her 200-hr YTT in London under the guidance of Stewart Gilchrist. Since then, she has also studied Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga in Mysore, India with Shri Sheshadri, completed a 40-hour CPD certificate in teaching Ashtanga (Primary Series) with David Swenson, and trained in adapting vinyasa for pre- and post-natal practitioners (with YogaBright/Claire Saunders).
Becky teaches physically and intellectually challenging vinyasa yoga classes. Her classes are informed by contemporary anatomical knowledge, which supplement her deep respect for the more than 5,000 years of yoga tradition. She believes as 21st Century teachers of yoga in the West, we must all understand and respect of the history of yoga, while incorporating modern science that helps us adapt the practice to modern practitioners. She is passionate about helping other teachers strike this important balance.
