COURSE DETAILS

MORNING ASANA CLASSES

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 break down the sequence and discuss the class. 

 

SEQUENCING

Learn how to sequence intelligently, how to prepare the body for peak asanas and how to integrate the effects of the practice. Understand the rules of sequencing and how to use them to deliver creative, safe classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.

 

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

You will learn different types and techniques of hands-on adjustments. You will:

  • adjust your student in each pose without verbal leading

By the end of the course, you will feel confident in adjusting the most common vinyasa poses. 

 

STUDENTS TEACHING EACH OTHER
