Comprehensive Yoga Fellowship
The Comprehensive Yoga
Fellowship is based in the north west of England and is open to all those who have an interest
in meeting with like-minded people to share their experience of yoga. We meet for three
seminars a year on a Sunday at:
Hall, Chester Road, ACTON, Nr. Nantwich, Cheshire. CW5 8LG
conveniently situated for those travelling from surrounding areas such as, Merseyside,
Staffordshire and Manchester
We also run an extra day each
year (see 'Calendar of
Events') when an experienced teacher from outside the CYF is invited to come
along, bringing their particular expertise to help broaden our knowledge.
seminars consist of a morning of hatha yoga, pranayama and relaxation and an
afternoon of a selection of interesting material relating to different aspects of yoga practice.
This may include meditation, practical exercises and philosophical discussion. The hall is open for
early arrivals at 9.45am and the morning session begins at 10.30am. Tea and other hot drinks
are available on arrival. The day ends at 4pm. Please bring your own lunch, yoga mat,
are included in the membership fees and are also open to non-members, who pay £10 for the
day, (see 'Membership'). To join either download a membership form (see
'Membership') and send it to the address on the form along with
your payment, or come along to one of our seminars to enjoy a day of yoga. There will be
an opportunity to join the Fellowship on the day if you wish.
Teacher Training Diploma Course: In addition to a forum for people who enjoy yoga,
the CYF was formed with the idea of training its own yoga teachers and our teacher training diploma course has
gradually developed over the years. It is now a well established three-year course
which is recognised by the
Independent Yoga Network.* It has the
benefit of being correspondence-based for the submission of essays and practically based to
ensure that teaching methods are thoroughly imparted to its trainees.
* 'The Independent Yoga Network is an
organisation for Yoga Teachers and Teacher Training Schools. As well as
offering support to its members, it represents them in any forum that is likely to impact on
the future of Yoga, and always with a view to keeping Yoga free
and independent...' www.independentyoganetwork.org
