The sequence of the poses in the class is the most powerful tool the yoga teacher has to make a yoga class to be memorable. During this training we will cover these topics:
- Themes, sub-themes and peak poses
- Correct structure of a yoga class
- Practical exercises and discussions
Adjustments, assistances, support, are all ways the yoga teacher helps the student feel the asana deeper. A well timed adjustment allows the student to feel how a pose should feel, imprinting their muscle memory and serving as a stepping stone into a better practice. During this part of the training we will cover:
- Adjusting principles (how, when, to whom, when to and when not to)
- How to modify an adjustment based on the level of the student
- Hands on practice for tens of poses (hundreds if time permits)
Sequencing and adjustments are tools available to teacher but at the end of the day all that matters is how much love you are able to pour into your class. Throughout the training we will explain ways to make your class inclusive, personal, motivational, meaningful, inspirational… We will discuss topics like:
- The overarching goal of a yoga class
- Tools to connect with your audience
- Tools to help your students improve their practice
