Enhance & Advance Your Teaching Skills
This is a theoretical and practical course that will include group discussions, personal reflection, practical exercises and practice teaching.
We will review the basic blueprint of a Hatha Yoga practice and examine the following: different modalities by which students learn; how to manage time and set priorities when preparing classes of varying lengths and styles; how to create a safe and accessible physical space; how to hold space on a psychological and emotional level in order to create an environment for learning; and how to weave elements such as pranayama, mantras, meditation and mudras into yoga classes.
We will also examine the nature of the Teacher/Student relationship, the importance of boundaries and our personal motives as a teacher and finally, we will examine how to cultivate a vibrant inner life, and why this is essential to being an effective yoga teacher.
With practice time, we will examine:
  • practical tools to create balanced and effective yoga classes;

  • the value of, and how to cultivate a vibrant inner life.
