Junior Intermediate Teacher Training with Peggy and Devon
For all beginner level Iyengar teachers, and all learning more about intermediate level Iyengar teaching.
There are two primary paths of study for this teacher training weekend:
Topic One: The Asanas:
We will explain and respond to questions about how to do the poses on the Junior Intermediate I and II syllabus. This will be like a yoga class with all sorts of questions allowed, and the answers revealed by means of practice and discussion of instructions. We will cover the basics of doing the poses, and some of the ways of using props and support where there is need.
Topic Two: Teaching at an Intermediate Level:
We will review the current expectations of teaching according to the Certification Manual, especially the following topics:
Teaching using forms of linkage within and between poses
Examples of standard adjustments for standard problems
Understanding of how to present yoga philosophy in the context of asana classes.
Saturday October 27 1pm – 5pm (with a break)
Sunday October 28 8am – 12noon (with a break)
Location: Austin Iyengar Yoga at Clear Spring Studio
In this afternoon workshop, you will learn a variety of basic yoga poses that will help strengthen and create flexibility in the shoulder joint.
This is an all levels workshop that will incorporate education about the shoulder joint as well as practical applications to build strength in this often vulnerable area of the body.
Learn about how the rope wall, platform and our new "stall" or bar wall can enhance your practice! Two hours of strength work, flexibility work, beginner work, challenging work, supported work, and fun work.
