MODULE THREE: Creating Deeper Alignment ~ Advanced Teaching Techniques

As students progress, so must the teacher in order to show the way. This module will demonstrate how to refine alignment in poses, break down more difficult poses to allow access to all body types, deepen anatomical adjusting and help students overcome mental limitations.

In this training you’ll…
  • review important alignment details to keep your students safe while working towards deeper poses

  • practice your ability to see and feel lines of energy in poses and spirals
  • learn to use props in skillful ways for all body types
  • become familiar with mental and physical techniques to help all levels of practitioners feel successful in poses
In addition, you’ll learn…
  • how to modify asanas for beginners when you don’t have props available
  • languaging to inspire and encourage students
  • how to not overwhelm students with information
  • why pacing your verbal instructions is important
