Yoga is a recognized preventive and alternative healing tool. In the yogic sense yoga facilitates self-reflection and the discovery of the self at all levels -body, mind and soul. The beauty of yoga is that it is an effective method that works.
Focus and approach: The ‘Aspects of Yoga’ Teacher Training approach is to train and equip the aspirant yoga teacher with the knowledge and techniques that will enable them to teach skillfully and safely with compassion and integrity. The idea and focus of the school is to promote a high standard of yoga teaching and ethical values with an emphasis on teaching according to individual needs. And most importantly to instill in the teacher, so they will pass onto the student, the beauty and effectiveness of yoga.
Emphasis of Training Methodology and teaching techniques will enable you to:
- Plan, prepare and present a class
- Learn to see and understand your student’s areas of strengths and challenges.
- Teach with correct alignment and sequencing, so as not to stress the knees, back, neck and nervous system
- Observe classes in progress
- Recognize and correct improper postures
- Assist the teacher
Physiology and anatomy are geared to the postures with emphasis on:
