    Course Information


    Our next available course runs for 12 weeks from Mondays from 19 February 2018,   1pm – 2.30pm,  Body Soul Yoga, Walton on Thames, Surrey.  

    On day 1:  Please arrive 15 - 20 minutes early.  The 12 course dates are listed above.            

    Unable to attend Class 1? – Please contact your teacher, because Class 1 is important as:- it includes an assessment element; it is a different type of class to the rest of the course, where you will go through a ‘menu’ sheet of pain-relieving poses; and you will importantly be taught how to learn to relax. 

    Unable to attend all 12 classes? - Do not worry if you think you may not be able to attend all the classes, as you can catch up on missed classes on future courses, thereby spreading out your learning.  

    Teacher:   Faye Koe  Certified British Wheel of Yoga Teacher and Teacher of ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs Institute Programme.’

    Please contact the teacher on 07837343251: This is for a brief pre-course preliminary chat.  Please make contact as soon as you can, if you have not already spoken to her; or at least a week before the course begins. 

    Faye’s telephone number: 07837343251.  Email: faye.bodysoulyoga@gmail.com or www.bodysoulyoga.co.uk

    What to Bring: Please bring along a water bottle/yoga/exercise mat and a blanket. We have spares if you forget, but you are encourage to buy a mat for your home practice.

    What to Expect: This unique ‘best practice’ yoga course is designed by experts.  It is extremely gentle in its approach and puts you in charge of improving your health and wellbeing.  It is taught in small groups to allow for individual attention. 

    What to Wear: Please wear loose layered clothing so that you can move easily and so that you will not get cold/hot.  You will practise yoga in bare-feet, but if it is cold weather, you may like to wear non-slip socks.

    Venue description:  Classes take place in Faye’s home in Walton on Thames.  Details given upon registration.  The room has wooden floors, discrete lighting and is warm and cosy and safe.

    Parking/Public Transport:   Parking available in the day and evenings and on Sundays on the roadside of Manor Road.  By the river at Walton Wharf and near to the Swan Public house.  Please do not park in Berkeley Gardens as your vehicle may be removed, as this is a private road.

    The Book, Relaxations CD and Home Practice: You will be given the comprehensive ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ book written by Alison Trewhela and Anna Semlyen, published by Lotus Publishing.  In the research trial participants had this students’ manual as an accompaniment to the course to remind them of things learnt in the 12 classes.  You will be taught to incorporate postural and stress-relieving techniques into your daily life and to practise simple yoga effectively at home.  To begin with, we will suggest you practise almost every day, but once your condition has improved, practising for 30 minutes twice a week is likely to help to maintain long-term health improvements, as shown in our research. You will also receive the 4-track Relaxations CD to enable you to learn how to release physical, mental and emotional tension.  You will receive home practice hand-out sheets throughout the course. 

    Payment:  Total of £200 for this 12-week course that teaches you to help yourself forever.  A Registration & Resources Fee (£56 – for published book, 4-track relaxations CD, practice sheets, hand-outs, registration) is due to book your place, before Class 1, and then please arrange to pay the Teaching Fees of £12 per class directly to the teacher in two instalments due 1 week before Class 1 (£72) and Class 5 for class 7 and beyond (£72).  You may find your employer/NHS/Council/health insurer will subsidize costs in view of the evidence-base of long-term health self-management, e.g. 70% reduction of work absenteeism equating to £800 in lost productivity - I can provide an invoice/receipt for this purpose.  Thank you.

    Who to contact if you want to know more:  Contact your teacher, faye.bodysoulyoga@gmail.com, or www.yogaforbacks.co.uk.
