British Wheel of Yoga IST (In-Service Training) Days
offer three approved BWY IST Days. "Adjusting Students With
Confidence" Parts 1 & 2 are two separate days which are
linked but also work as stand-alone days. My third IST is called
Yoga for Sports People and Athletes. I am
happy to run these days anywhere in the country, although if I
am travelling a long way I prefer to run a day on the Saturday
and Sunday in neighbouring counties. One day could be an IST and
the other a general yoga day on Ashtanga Vinyasa or Core
Strength. Most IST Days are organised by BWY County Reps and you
can only book via the relevant county, not through me.
If you are not a county rep, please talk to the relevant person
in your area to suggest a booking. For more details contact me
on 01643 702827 or email paulfoxashtanga @ hotmail.com
Feedback from the
Adjusting Students Day
"One of the most valuable training days I've done"..."Excellent
day. Lots of very interesting information"..."A really great day
- what I have been looking for, for a long time. I liked the
balance of posture work in the morning and postural analysis in
the afternoon"..."Fascinating day - well organised with lots of
practical applications to use in teaching"...Paul Fox is
excellent. He communicates extremely well, has a superb manner
and certainly brings out the best in students".
