In this workshop designed specifically for yoga teachers we will work to refine our teaching language to offer clear and specific alignment instructions to get students into and out of each pose efficiently and safely. It’s not uncommon for yoga teachers to give vague alignment instructions; or the alignment instructions are simply missing. Clear articulation of alignment is a practice in and of itself. What we say as yoga teachers, and how we say it, matters.
Teaching with clear and specific alignment instructions in a flow class is a difficult task. After all, how much alignment instruction can be given in just 15 to 30 seconds? As it turns out, more than one might think. This efficient conveyance of information is accomplished via language called sutra-like vernacular. A sutra is a concentrated teaching presented in the most succinct statement possible. Sutras are often so concise that they are written as phrases instead of sentences. And yet, like a seed, each sutra contains vast amounts of information.
Do you want to be able to offer your students a clear, specific, efficient, and safe practice? Then you need join me for this transformative workshop.
