BWY Foundation Course Level 1
British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Level 1
We have no Foundation Courses scheduled at this time. We will post on the website when the next one is planned. The course will be run by Debby and David Wilkinson.
The Foundation Course provides an excellent opportunity for students to delve deeper into the practice of yoga and will cover many aspects of yoga that are not, ordinarily, covered in weekly classes. The course is suitable for students who would like to further their understanding of yoga practices from a personal development point of view and it is also an essential pre-requistite for those wishing to embark on yoga teacher training.
