Each session is 3.5 hours divided into practice, lecture and working creatively with the day’s content. Upon completion teachers will leave with confidence to explore their teaching of public classes and private lessons with greater depth. This 6 week course comes with a custom teacher manual.

Topics Covered
Week 1:

Week 2:
Vira and the role of the Iliopsoas, Pelvis and Legs.
The family of Vira poses include Virabhadrasana I-III, Virasana, Supta Virasana, and Eka Pada Supta Virasana. Gain kinesthetic awareness of the iliopsoas and the major muscle groups of the lower body through the lens of Vira poses to make connections to all other categories of poses.

Week 3:

Week 4:
Inversions and Shoulder Anatomy
Take a closer look at the 4 joints of each shoulder and map out a clear strategy for instructing Inversions. Learn how to make inversions comfortable and accessible through technique and effective prop use.

Week 5:
Backbends for Lower Back and Spine Health
Deconstruct backbends for each section of the spine. Included this week is developing tools for helping students find alignment for lower back instability through yoga postures and prop work.
