Saturday May 25, 3 to 6 pm & Sunday May 25, 1 to 4 pm
Using themes skillfully in your classes infuses your teaching with meaning. It is a way to stay both inspired as a teacher and relevant for your students. It’s easy to fall into the trap of ‘sandwiching’ a theme, in other words only relating to the theme at the start and end of class. In this training we will look at how we can creatively thread the idea through the whole practice. A well crafted theme makes for depth of practice and a full well-rounded experience for your students. It can give them something deeper and more meaningful to take away from the class in terms of how to integrate yoga into their lives off the mat as well as keep you continuously inspired and evolving as a teacher.
TOPICS & ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
Choosing relevant themes for your classes
How to layer your teaching to create depth of experience
How to consistently weave a theme through the whole class
Group work and group discussion
STUDENTS WILL WALK AWAY WITH:
A practical template to map out an integrated theme
Tools for varied, nuanced and layered teaching
Inspiration to find new and engaging themes for classes
Inspiration to teach yoga which supports students’ lives off the mat
Inspiration to stay authentic, relevant and ignited as a teacher
This workshop will be very experiential and focus on practical application with opportunity for discussion, group work and individual teaching practice including feedback and reflection. The aim is to find ways to weave and integrate themes more fully into class, so that all parts of the practice support the experience and reflect your chosen focus.
$70 for both 3-hour workshops
