Continuing Professional Development
It's vital to continue learning and growing as a yoga teacher, and our Continuing Professional Development Courses aim to do just that. Whether you are interested in learning about Shatkarmas and the concept of Agni, deepen your understanding of Marma points, strengthen your adjustments skills, or study the Upanishads, there is a CPD course that will broaden your learning.

A Full Weekend
Life is busy, and our courses are geared to fit even the busiest lifestyle. Our CPD courses take place entirely over one weekend, garnering 14 contact hours of learning. We will have a full day on Saturday, from 9am – 6pm, and then a shorter day on Sunday, from 9am – 4pm.

Build Up to Your 500-hour Certificate
As you increase your knowledge base with each CPD course, you’ll accrue hours that will count towards a 500-hour certificate. As each course increases your knowledge, it also increases your opportunity to certify as a RYT-500 Teacher, setting you apart from the masses. Step by step, you’ll be establishing yourself as a teacher committed to yourself and your students.

Tutors
With a wide range of topics on offer, tutors for each of the CPD courses come from a diverse and endless background of experiential learning and training. They are individuals who have devoted themselves to a particular area of expertise and we are delighted to have them share their skill set with YogaLondon students.

In-person training, even during lockdown
At YogaLondon, we believe in-person training is best.
As a vocational teacher training school operating in covid-secure venues, we remain open and continue to deliver our professional training in person, even in tier 4 lockdown. This covers 500-hour modules and CPDs, unless otherwise advertised.
And if you can’t attend a class, our Live Stream feature is available to you. This new learning option enables our students to participate remotely whenever necessary, ensuring they have full control over their training environment.

Course Description:
As a woman gives birth to her baby, so too a mother is ‘born’ and a new chapter in her and her family’s life begins. Yoga can positively support new mothers on this journey of changing responsibilities by offering stability, reassurance and positivity. Practicing pranayama, asana, meditation and relaxation techniques can actively support mothers to feel more centred in the midst of changing emotions, changing nappies, sleep deprivation, general feelings of chaos and often simultaneous feelings of helplessness and utter joy and happiness. Yoga can teach mothers not to be shaken about uncontrollably by the new demands placed upon them; they learn to accept, and to accommodate the changing circumstance with grace and ease, and go with the flow. This CPD weekend is open to certified Prenatal Yoga Teachers only.

Course Description:
Anxiety is a type of fear usually associated with the thought of a threat or something going wrong in the future, but can also arise from something happening right now. It is one of the world's leading mental health challenges and it’s symptoms alone can be crippling. If left untreated, chronic anxiety can lead to further debilitating illnesses such as insomnia, depression, agoraphobia and psychosis. Anxiety is not only a psychological experience, but a very physical one. Yoga practices have been proven to reduce and relieve the symptoms of anxiety through mindful movement, breathing and improved self-awareness. This workshop will delve into the psychology, physiology, neuroscience and anatomy of anxiety. We will practice and explore the theory of simple yet effective techniques that aim to bring harmony to body-mind by balancing the nervous system and restoring a sense of ease. This weekend is part of a series of CPD trainings centered on Building Emotional Resilience Through Yoga. Others in the series include Depression and Post-Traumatic Growth. These may be attended as a singular training or taken in any order. They aim to leave you feeling more confident to speak to your students about their emotional experiences while maintaining professional boundaries, and to manage overwhelm should it arise in group classes or one to one sessions.
Introduction to Restorative Yoga March 2021

March 2021
Course Description:
Restorative yoga teaches us to slow down and prop the body so that no discomfort is experienced anywhere. Blankets are folded just-so and tucked under a tight hip, or tense shoulder; necks let go as heads settle onto the support of a bolster; eye-pillows enable the eye muscles to soften; juggling balls placed into palms send a ripple of release into the shoulders. The whole system begins to re-balance and emits a spontaneous sigh of relief.


Restorative poses are adaptations of classical poses, the support means that no energy is required to hold them and deeply-held patterns can be released. The pace is so slow you may only do four or five poses in an hour. This weekend teaches you how to set-up and prop asanas, recognise areas of tension in your body and support them to let go.

The slow pace of the weekend will naturally engender a sense of release in your own system.

You will need to bring the following equipment:
- A yoga mat or two
- 2 blankets
- 2 cushions
- 2 blocks and/or bricks
- A strap

If you have them please bring:
- Bolsters
- Eye pillows
- Juggling balls (for weight)

Course Description:
Mandala Yoga is a beautiful, energetic style of yoga that challenges limitations in both the body and the mind. By sequencing the asanas in a circle, Mandala Yoga challenges presumptions about how we both occupy and move through space — underpinned by a methodology that encompasses chakra, element and meridian theories. This workshop provides an excellent overview of what distinguishes this style of yoga from others, how it fits in the current landscape of contemporary yoga offerings, and ways you could implement the basic principles into your own teaching.
