This is your time ! Put the smile back into your yoga ! Transform your Yoga with Golden Glow Yoga College today....
When we were young most of us had a ready answer for "What do you want to be when you grow up ? "
These days we are consciously likely to ask "What to you want to DO when you grow up ? " And luckily for us a lot of us get to chose a variety of things to do with our work and free time during our life span.
But a Profession for Life ? Not so fixed anymore.
So if you think you want to train be a Yoga Teacher might i suggest a rephrase 'You want to train to be a really good Yoga Teacher. Beyond the physical but physical none the less."
I know just the place ....
A Rugby Pro, a Nurse, a Racing Driver, Sailor or Surfer.... Everybody regardless of their profession can feel the benefits of Yoga; Accountant, Mother,Judge, jury.
If we are encouraged to take a little time for ourselves and stay with the sensations, the breathing and the stretching we grow. Just being able to hear your own truth gets easier. Hearing your whisper is more natural. Everything flows along better. Less drama. Less stress.
As teachers of Yoga#commonsense, Golden Glow Yoga College goes some way to challenge the labels of "You're off your game "or "It's just for girls " or " It's too gentle" or even " It's Too easy or Too boring !".
Our teachers are encouraged to ask themselves Who is Your Audience ? What is Your Purpose ? And encourage a teacher to create or adjust a program to inspire and challenge. Us taking a yoga program seriously for ourselves in the end helps us get the most out of the rest of our lives too. We grow in our confidence. Our patience. Our kindness. Often to ourselves above all.
"...One hand for helping ourselves and one hand for helping others." Audrey Hepburn
So, we developed the Teacher Training Programs at Golden Glow Yoga College for people just like you and me who are looking to have better balance in their day to day life; but a whole life.
Being on the path to becoming a teacher gives us structure, commitment, discipline. We are needed. We can learn to relax with it. Balance it. Enjoy it.
Accepting its easier for us to find time for ourselves on the mat when we've made a commitment to others may be just the way it is. Not all of us are able to love ourselves enough just to do it for us initailly.
Are we able to be present to step up when needed? Able to sit back down and rest when we need it? It gets easier when we practice.It gets easier to have loving routines in our day to day.
Its hard to learn to balance time for working hard and also playing hard against time with family and friends and 'me time'.
That for a lot of us is about as good as it gets.
Most people who start our yoga training courses do so for themselves really in the end. Not only for others. My job is to help new teachers give themselves permission to do just that. Build on the idea of looking after ourselves. And of course then we are better able to look after others.
When student teachers feel stronger and more 'themselves' it flows from them to be able to give away what they have learned. Share the joy. Spread the love.
"One hand for helping ourselves and one hand for others" Audrey Hepburn is a lifestyle balance I've tried to bring to our training to help those on the yogic path.And i love my job.
We learn that we can relax and 'listen to our whisper' instead of always searching for answers. The Laws for Living help us be the best we can be. But we understand there are many guiding lights if we know what to look for. Its learning it's ok to say "No that's not for me" and learning to take a risk once in a while and blossom,
Loving ourselves enough to take time out to find out 'Who am I ? ' What do I enjoy ? What do i wish to a target this year, month, today? What will i sacrifice ?
What will i gain? What do I want to be when I Grow Up ?
It may all lead to more questions again of course.
Can i allow myself to be the child? Would it be selfish to do this? Is it ok to have fun with this? ' When will i stop?
.......Before i hurt myself ?
These thoughts, our 'truths' come and go. We evolve, we grow , we forget, we stumble, we go around in circles for a while maybe and then refocus again.
We learn to live full and active lives.
Come and be a little more child like for a while. Not too much chanting, dancing and singing... : ). But a little maybe and just enough to nourish the soul, season the dish and settle the minds.Come and have some down time.
Golden Glow Yoga brings a lot of work but a lot of learning. With a few laughs.
And its all about YOU !
Take some time for yourself. Its time to transform. It's time to Grow.

Its going to be a fantastic summer !!
And so it begins... Another year of study with new teachers in training. And it is always a joy to begin a new training and this years work is no exception.
This course is bulit upon and improved every year and is comprehensive and wide in its field. It is designed to create a space of personal development and joyousness around hard work and practice. The work we cover in the first term before the Xmas holidays is very much focused on the Physical Body however we are very much aware that the Emotional Pranic Body, the Mental Body and the Psychic Body of the Wisdom Mind are there always for us as Humans Being and so with a sense our our Spiritual Being, on this course we allow ourselves time to consider these concepts and honour the work of great Masters and Sages as we learn our basics and check our growth.
Examinations for this course are kept to a minimum and we have an assessment weekend prior to graduation. We only have small numbers on courses and do so in particular so to be able to keep close contact with the inquiring minds of student teachers along their path. Progress is divided into both personal and professional development and awareness is gauged by continual assessment and encouragement.
There is a requirement for each student to submit a 3000 word essay of an agreed yoga topic of their choice at the end of the course prior to graduation. This gives the student teacher an opportunity to study in depth, a yogic concept that interests them in particular. However it is not a course of show up and get your cert. It is a requirement that all new teachers can perform, practice and teach a variety of Asana, Pranayama and meditation techniques.
Our task at Golden Glow Yoga College is to help you learn how. : )
We are still doing interview for student teachers wishing to be considered for a place on this years course. Please do contact us directly id you have an interest. Its never too late !
