Each day will include yoga workshops in the style of Yin Yoga, guided meditation and pranayama, philosophy and yogic discussion, with full support from the training team.
You will discover your authentic voice and gifts as a teacher, create inspiring and meaningful themes, refine the art of observation, learn how to really see your students, design a self practice that will be the basis from which your own teaching style will emerge, and you will learn how this creates not good but fantastic teachers. You will learn to understand better how to skillfully sequence group yoga classes. You will learn to embody the anatomy and philosophy of yoga, cultivating a deeper understanding of subtle body anatomy that you can sprinkle into your classes, and take further into better understanding your own practice and body.
You will be taught how to modify poses for beginners or advanced practitioners in your class, ensuring that each yogi takes from their practice what they need. You will learn verbal cues, how to offer appropriate demonstrations, how to adapt, or assist your yogis when they can go melt deeper into their practice, or simply need help with their own unique alignment. We will discuss the philosophy of where yin yoga came from, and how it continues to evolve.
