When designing this course there were a few factors that we considered crucial to the success of such a program. after completion we want everyone involved to understand very clearly what yoga is how it works and how to communicate that experience in a led class format. So the goal of these courses is to help everyone to first practice yoga with the confidence that on their own they can calm their mind, relax their body and experience pure consciousness. Then to be able to teach in a way that shares that personal connection. Therefore enough time and guidance for personal progress to happen has been woven into the schedule.
To make this process easy lets make it fun and interesting. We begin teaching just one pose to one other person, gradually we teach more poses to more people. By the middle of the course teaching a 1.5 hour class to whole group and by the end of the course having the confidence and imagination to create our own sequences and classes.
What makes this course a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in learning to teach yoga are the media resources which capture the course content. The two sequenced practices are each explained in a workbook with full colour pictures and again in a full practice DVD. These resources will assist the students to achieve a satisfying self practice at home for years to come after the course is over. The Pranayama and Meditation classes are recorded on CD to also allow for a lasting experience to aid in self practice.
This course is very special because the various components create a synthesis which is rare in TTC taught interntionally these days. In part one the asana practice will be explained and verified alongside the anatomy section. Similarly in part two the practice of asana, pranayama and especially meditation will be examined and explained in parallel with the study of yoga philosophy. For part three we will look at individual aspects of asana practice like hip openers, inversions or backbends and begin to create mini sequences. Having opened up the possibility of creativity in asana to individual interpretation to help understand how to express that we will look at the art of teaching in the Theory Section.
