Order and Sequence: An 8 Week Course for Teachers

December 3, 2020 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Thursday, repeating until December 17, 2020

Teaching beginners is often the most challenging group of students to teach, but they can often be the most rewarding. Unfortunately, most people don’t want to be seen as beginners, so they often pop into more intermediate classes.

As a teacher you have to try to bring the beginners along without them getting hurt while challenging your more experienced students. What do you teach and how and when do you teach it?

What this course will teach you is to look at your students and really see them. Beginning and intermediate students alike have postural issues that we can address through yoga. This course will teach you to recognize that how your students habitually stand and move will tell you a lot about what they need to work on.

This 8 week course will help you learn to become a better teacher. It will help you to look at your students and to see where their restrictions are. But more importantly it will show you what basic skills your students need to learn to be able to make progress in their practice safely and intelligently. The skills you learn will help you know how to teach your students to understand the basic poses so they can make progress in their practice.
