Rather than becoming an unconscious re-enforcing of what we can’t do.”

Open to all except complete beginners, it is an opportunity for a Yoga Student, Yoga Teacher or Trainee Yoga Teacher from any Yoga background or style to develop and deepen their personal Yoga practice and study through an appreciation of the core teachings that underpin the Viniyoga of Yoga from the primary principles and teachings from T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar.

121 Online Viniyoga of Yoga eStudy Module One Prerequisites, Duration, Session Timings, Fees and Commencement

The prerequisites are a minimum of one year’s attendance at a Yoga group class of any Yoga approach, or 10 individual Yoga lessons with any Yoga teacher.

The online eModule is offered to students in the form of nine 121 meetings via Skype, FaceTime, or another compatible live link video medium, to allow for a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student.

The timings for each session will be 50′. They total 7.5 hours of 121 teaching held over nine meetings at intervals to be negotiated between student and teacher. The suggestion at this point is around 2-4 weeks between meetings.

The fee for the online eModule will be £415 for the nine sessions and includes a pre-prepared PDF manual as a support. For students using the UK Banking BACS payment system this will be the transferable fee.

However where there are cross country or cross currency transfer fees involved then these need to be added on so the received fee is still £415.

Missed or cancelled meetings at less than 24 hours notice are chargeable. In these situations further meetings to catch up on content are possible and can be added on at a fee of £47 per 50′ session.
