Why is advanced asana so important? Being able to help your students learn, grow and see themselves progress is one of the keys to being a great yoga teacher. You will rarely retain students long term if they don’t feel like their practice is steadily evolving and deepening. Like everywhere in life, we will stay with a teacher as long as we learn something of value, and move on when we have outgrown them. So keeping your momentum, staying on top of your game and your students’ abilities is an important consideration.

Topics:

  • Anatomical sequencing: Learn how to write yoga sequences that focus on specific muscle groups and movements, allow them to activate and lengthen correctly for optimum health benefits. Create sequences with anatomical purpose and direction rather than just choreographic arrangement.

  • Peak posture sequencing: Learn how to gracefully and sequentially guide students into more advanced peak postures so they will be the most ready to try those postures with full strength and physical openness. With this approach, you will give students the opportunity to "arrive" in the posture rather than just "try" it.

  • Power yoga sequences (Theory and practice): Break down challenging sequences and write your own. 

  • Asana lab: De-code challenging sequences, gain an in-depth understanding of specific postures: why we use them, how we cue them, what is going on anatomically etc.

  • Advanced theming: Delve deeply into master tools, resources and practice on theming a yoga class. We will discuss how to build unique content and deliver it in a poetic way that’s authentic to you.

  • The Theming Matrix - an advanced blueprint to writing amazing content that fully resonates with you as a teacher and person.

Bonus:

  • During the weekend and as homework, all participants will write a series of anatomical and peak posture sequences, and themed classes. All these will be uploaded in a shared folder for ALL participants to use. So in joining this weekend, you will gain access to a wealth of amazing classes and sequences, all ready to use with your own students.
