50-Hour Art of Adjustment and Teaching Skills YTT

50-HOUR ART OF ADJUSTMENT AND TEACHING SKILLS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

OVERVIEW

 

As yoga teachers, we must take on the role of both teacher and student; always alert, aware, open and ready to both give and receive. 

This course is specifically designed to assist 200-hour certified yoga teachers in further finessing these precious skills while refining their teaching methodology. 

During this 7-day intensive Continuing Professional Development course, students are invited to dive deeper into their personal practice while exploring and refining the art of adjusting. Mornings will begin with inspiring and invigorating vinyasa flows, followed by teaching methodology, where verbal instructions and demonstration techniques will be taken to the next level. Next, we explore hands-on adjustments, while in the afternoons, theory will meet application where we will dedicate time to practice these hands-on adjustments. Strengthening workshops to sharpen technique and alignment will be given so that students will leave with an enhanced personal practice and therefore, be able to better serve their students. 

All this will take place at Evia Silence, a beautiful waterfront retreat center located on Evia Island, Greece. Free time can be spent soaking up the sun, taking a swim, enjoying traditional food at the local tavernas or exploring the captivating oasis.

COURSE DETAILS

MORNING ASANA CLASS

Each morning you will practice a 90-minute vinyasa class. Whether we see ourselves as beginners or advanced in our practice, we all have something to learn. We provide support and challenge to suit each individual's needs. There will be two teachers in the morning class; one to lead and one to offer hands-on adjustments. After the class, if desired, we can analyze the sequence. 

TEACHING METHODOLOGY

In this theoretical and practical course, you will tune up your teaching skills. Learn how to:

  • demonstrate effectively and safely

  • guide students into asanas

  • position yourself for optimal viewing

  • use props effectively

  • offer modifications and variations of poses.

 

HANDS-ON ADJUSTMENTS

It has become very common to get adjusted in yoga classes, with many students expecting to get adjusted. Since there are infinite possibilities for how to adjust different body types in a posture, adjusting has become an art. While some students respond to verbal instructions, others respond to hands-on adjustments. That makes adjustments a very effective way of communicating with your students. Often the best way to understand something is not through information but through experience.

Each morning the teachers will demonstrate new hands-on adjustments. Later that day, you will practice those adjustments and receive feedback. You will:

  • adjust your student in each pose without verbal leading

  • adjust your student while the main teacher is verbally leading them

  • verbally lead your student into postures while adjusting them

By the end of the course, you will have learned how to adjust approximately 40 poses.

WORKSHOPS

During the workshops we break down complex postures like lotus, headstand, deep backbends, transitions, chaturanga dandasana and deep inversions. We teach baby pre-requisite steps that include preparation exercises, appropriate warm ups and requirements for the full expression of the posture. These classes will bring safety, awareness and mindfulness to your practice and teaching.
