Next training August 2016
Learn from some of your favorite PLAY teachers on your journey to a deeper understanding of yoga. Our high quality, well rounded program will give you a deeper understanding of yoga.
You’ll develop confidence as we study over 60 poses, learning the following for each:
Proper alignment is one of the most important aspects of a safe practice. Using your PLAY TT manual, demonstration and discussion we will learn how to adjust poses to find proper alignment and help you get your practice to meet you where your body is on any given day. We’ll discuss common limitations for poses and learn modifications to serve the variety of students you will encounter.
The spoken language of Sanskrit is said to invoke the same vibration as the poses being practiced. We’ll develop a foundational understanding of the language, learn the original sanskrit names for the poses in our program, and work with proper pronunciation.
Stimulating the various Chakra points and subtle energies throughout your practice happens without you knowing it! We will teach you how to properly group poses for the different Chakras and subtle energies, as well as why we need to stimulate them throughout our practice.
Teaching Tools and Cues
Becoming a teacher is one of the most rewarding experiences, and we are excited to help you begin your journey as a teacher. Throughout the program we will focus on getting comfortable in front of a group, how to cue effectively, how to sequence a class, hands on assists and so much more!
In Depth Anatomy
Using your PLAY TT manual, text books, and our life-size skeleton we will teach anatomy from a functional perspective. Understanding the bones, muscles and joints that make up the body helps to develop a deeper understanding of the asanas and how to practice/teach them effectively.
We believe anatomy is a key tool to understanding asanas, so you will be learning anatomy throughout the entire program. Our team of trainers, with their diverse and eclectic backgrounds will teach you to intelligently sequence your classes, as well as your own practice. With their combined experience of over 60 years of teaching yoga to thousands of students, this training is a uniquely valuable experience at an affordable price.
You’ll come out of our training, feeling confident to begin your teaching journey. Change your life, have a blast and PLAY with us!
