This course teaches students "peak pose sequencing," which can be applied to hatha or vinyasa yoga styles. Students will learn to choose a complex pose that will act as the pinnacle of the sequence, break down the peak pose into its component parts (what needs to be warmed up or educated in order to practice the pose effectively) and craft a sensible sequence to build logically to that peak. While peak pose sequencing is not the only valuable sequencing style, it is incredibly useful to help students learn to differentiate between poses and understand principles of alignment. The practices are peak pose sequences and designed to reinforce the student's understanding.
The training includes a wealth of learning activities, all designed to help your students become skilled, mindful teachers. The program includes asana labs, detailed asana practices, lectures, group activities, self-palpation, partner palpation, worksheets, practice teaching, journal reflections, and juicy group conversations, to name a few! There are a wide variety of learning techniques and styles to help support your students. The training also includes visually rich presentations (Google Slides, which can be downloaded as PowerPoints) for anatomical and philosophy subjects that benefit from graphics and media.
