200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training | March 2020

The Tribe Academy Vinyasa 200-hr training is a dedicated, immersive experience in Edinburgh, Scotland. Set aside the time to deepen your connection to yourself, your purpose, and your passion. This program is a month long life empowering adventure. At Tribe Academy we focus on setting a strong foundation of the traditional practices of breathing techniques, asanas, philosophy, and meditation and we teach you how to use these tools of self study to help you create healthy habits, strength physically and mentally and ultimately build you a more vital conscious lifestyle – and how you can share this with your future students if you wish.

We have gathered experts from different fields to give you visions from a scientific, psychological as well as a spiritual perspective. We have experienced senior yoga teachers who will introduce you to yin yoga, functional movement, yoga therapy and how yoga can be and is used in so many different ways in our world today. In Tribe Academy we “fit the Yoga to the body rather than trying to fit the body into the Yoga”. Practice teaching is a core part of our curriculum. Expect many opportunities to practice teach cues, sequencing, teaching aids, and adjustments with fellow trainees. Lead teachers will provide individualised feedback on regular assignments. Our training group size has been carefully crafted so that each trainee is seen by the teachers and has a voice in the community of the group. We keep our training groups small so that we can provide more personalised instruction for each teacher trainee and hold space for each one of our students so that you feel fully supported every step of the way. When yoga is used as a healing tool we can use the mat as a metaphor to understand where we are stuck so that we can eliminate that which does not enhance the growth of our individual and collective evolution.

Some practices are challenging, vigorous and will require self-discipline. Some practices are slow and juicy with therapeutic space for rest and relaxation. Both styles are valuable, both are important. Tribe Academy is the place where sweat, tears, openness and fun meet softness, quiet, introspection and self love. We hold a safe space where everyone is empowered and celebrated to be themselves. Benefits include grace, flexibility, strength, balance and well-being in the body and mind. You may also feel a sense of purpose, clarity, creativity, focus, connection, inner peace and confidence. Tribe academy integrates time tested traditions with modern knowledge and insights designed to awaken and inspire you.

Tessa Tweedie
Tessa TweedieSenior Teacher
Tessa is our Yin expert at Tribe Academy. She has studied the practice of Yin for years and is known for her challenging yet calming intelligently sequenced classes.
Tessa will introduce you to the foundations of Yin yoga.

You will in this practice learn how anatomy varies, especially at the skeletal level.
Instead of focusing on how the pose should look, we delve into functional alignment that everybody has, starting with yourself.

This means each person can align his or her body to serve the functional intention of the pose. You will learn the different ways in which each pose is meant to stress, stimulate and stretch the bodies’ connective tissues.

Tessa will also guide you through the art of hands on adjustments and how to use these in a safe and helpful way with your future students.

Emma Fraser
Emma FraserSenior Teacher
Emma started teaching kids yoga years ago, and this playful approach to the practice along with her comprehensive knowledge of anatomy makes her classes accessible with a strong focus on safety and anatomy.

With Emma you will discover the physical and physiological effects of yoga. Emma will teach you about the central nervous system and how conscious breathing and movement strengthens our nerve transmissions from the body to the brain, helping to decrease our emotional stress and muscular tension.

Emma will introduce the history of yoga and how it has shaped our practices of today. This will encourage your depth of knowledge beyond asana, opening new doors within your yoga. Emma has also worked with yoga for pregnancy, and she will teach you how to adapt the practice to benefit mums to be.

JJ Robb

JJ has always had an interest in movement. When he was competing in Free ride skiing he had a bad fall, and functional movement and yoga brought him out of injury, which deepened his interest further.

Via anatomical principles JJ will take you through the differences between flexibility and mobility, and how to intelligently sequence a class where your students build strength in a safe dynamic and fun way.
