About the Tutors
Becoming a yoga teacher is about making a transformational journey from student to instructor. It is a rich and challenging journey and we will be there to support you every step of the way. Our job is to empower students, and provide stimulating and interactive teaching sessions to deepen their inquiry into yoga and help them to pass all the assessments on the course (see the testimonials page for the views of students themselves).

You will be encouraged to teach from the start of the course in the peer group and among family and friends. After around 6 months, following discussion with the tutors, you may be ready to start commercial teaching. The rest of the course will then become a means of developing your teaching skills from practice.

All BWY Diploma and Certificate Course Tutors follow the same syllabus, but each DCT brings his or her specialist knowledge and emphasis to the course. On our course, expect lots of interactive learning and a particularly strong emphasis on asana, anatomy and physiology and safe practice.
