Do you want to be an effective and powerful vinyasa teacher? Do you want to fill the room and be a teacher whose classes are well attended? Can you do both? This six-session online course for existing yoga teachers will take your skills and your teaching career to new levels.
Whether you are a vinyasa teacher looking for new skills and tools, or an alignment-based teacher seeking to broaden your range, this course will give you many tools to implement immediately. As vinyasa yoga becomes more common, quality varies greatly. Vinyasa classes more closely resemble fitness classes (remember aerobics?) than ever before, and “vinyasa culture” is sitting on a spectrum that seems to grow broader by the hour. In this class, we will explore how to CREATE the experience of being in a FLOW STATE and use strategies and techniques to set your students up for success. Become an effective and powerful yoga teacher and the quality and integrity of your offering will be magnetic and magical.
Each online session will be classroom-based lecture, theory, analysis, discussion and homework review. Each session will give you specific homework assignments for self practice and teaching. You will want a subscription to Yogaglo.com, a video and audio recorder (and ability to upload), a metronome app, Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama and any other resources for pose knowledge as well as a strong self-directed learning motivation. A minimum of a 200RYT is recommended (not required). Also recommended is strong pose knowledge, teaching skills (Fundamentals of Yoga Poses, or equivalent) and a good working knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology (Anatomy 101, Asanatomy, or equivalent).
