Join us for the most incredible journey…
What does yoga mean to you?
Interested in finding your own unique teaching style, or simply wanting to delve deeper to enhance your own yoga practice?
Are you interested in both the teachings of Yin Yoga & Vinyasa and want to develop your knowledge further?
We want to support you on this journey, nourish your unique style, embrace your personality, listen to your experiences and celebrate your passion.
We will be covering the following and more….
– Yamas & Niyamas, not only allowing us to deepen our self-awareness in the yoga room, but how to explore these ethical practices beyond, making them accessible to your life journey as part of the Eight Limbs as set out in the yoga sutras.
– Ahimsa will be at the core of our learning throughout the year.
– The Power of the breath, Pranayama, the life force – looking at a variety of pranayama techniques, gaining confidence and an understanding of when you would use them, why would you use them and how to use them effectively.
– The Philosophy & Practice of Yin Yoga focusing on anatomy (skeletal, muscle and fascial systems.), we will explore sequencing using the meridian lines (TCM), movements of the spine, plus Paul Grilley’s teachings on the seven archetypal poses.
– How to find our own natural movement patterns in Vinyasa practice – We will explore a variety of practices, delving deep into body movement , encouraging you to find your own natural movement pattern and unique teaching style. We will be studying C.A.R’s, controlled articulated rotations to support your learning in both Yin & Yang.
– Understanding our own anatomy as well as our students. Learning to look at what’s possible, with kindness, knowledge and dedication and accepting our limitations without judgement. We have several Anatomy Workshops throughout our year together that are specific to Yin & Yang movement with a module on injuries.
– Yin & Yang Asanas – Breaking down the postures into a variety of levels, learning confidently how to link postures either by ‘class planning’ in advance, or by using and working with the energy and student’s ability within the room. You will learn lots of fun interesting ways to sequence. Lots of hands on adjustments, if you wish to adjust, as well as the art of verbal cueing and understanding what props to use when.
-How to modify for different groups and abilities, making classes both safe and fun.
By the end of the year, you will feel confident to teach both Yin and Yang styles. You will also more importantly learn to teach from your heart.
– Adjustments (How to, when to and when not to.)
– To Prop or not…. What are all these props in the studio for and how can we use them effectively.
– Have you found your voice ? Verbal cueing, considering and being mindful of the language used. What’s appropriate, what’s not!
– How can you enhance the experience of your own students within your class environment? (Introduction/thoughts on essential oils, trigger point release and acupressure.)
– Introduction to Ayurveda.
– Meditation & Yoga Nidra.
– Where do you go from teacher training…
