Creating a wholehearted, meaningful experience for your students is an art. You may already teach a class with an intuitive, creative, and delicious sequence or you may be drawn to teaching more of the philosophical and energetic aspects of class, yet a master teacher straddles both seamlessly. The first weekend will focus on “shape” the physical spine of a class: how to string shapes artfully together in a sequence that’s respectful and deliberate in opening the body and settling the mind; the shape of the actual class- why you are teaching what you are teaching; how to assist different bodies and the shapes they make with your hands; and how to teach to different levels by deconstructing those shapes.

We will then suture the first and second weekend together by moving deeper into “space”, or the energetics/esoterics of a class. Here we will examine the subtler aspects of teaching: the relationship between philosophy and physical dharma; the importance of connecting to your “source” or voice; and the relationship between how you tell a story with a class and why you are telling that story- the use of dynamics, tempo, volume, your voice, music, the space itself, the use of ritual, pranayama, and meditation; and finally, how to add philosophical dimension to your class in a way that is genuine. All this enabling you to score a class which offers a deeper connection between the seat of the teacher and the true meaning of holding space for your students.

SHAPE | 50 Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training

Creating a class sequence that is intuitive, creative, and delicious for the body requires skill, knowledge, and an artfulness that we will explore during this 50 hour training. The first weekend will focus on the “shape” or “spine” of the class. We will look at how to sequence in a more artful way that is intentional and smart. You will learn how to teach to different levels of students, give modifications, and how to adjust different body types with hands on assists. We will look at the “why” of class as well; why you are teaching what you are teaching. This 50 hour training will dive head first into the creative hardware of class.

SPACE | 50 Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training

On our second weekend of training, we will go beyond the “shape” of class and dive deeper into how to hold and create “space”. We will explore both physical and verbal dharma and how you as a teacher can “change” the room. Many elements are involved in creating a well rounded class that tells a story. We will discuss dynamics, the tempo of class, music, voice, pranayama, and meditation and philosophy. All of this to bring out the best in you as a teacher so the world can benefit from your unique gifts.

CURRICULUM

  • Physical and verbal dharma
  • Being in your voice
  • How to hold space
  • Subtler elements: music, pranayama, mediation, tempo

Mentor with Me 100 Hr.

If you have a 200hr TT under your belt, and have been looking for more training, you can study with me one on one, as a mentee, through Pure Yoga or through Prema Yoga Brooklyn. I will design a program specifically for you and it will be a full blown apprenticeship, where you get to shadow me in class, start teaching some of it, and eventually have more and more responsibility as we collaborate. Pure lasts three months, Prema two and they are slightly different. Pure will give you a community class on a weekly basis to use what we have been learning and for Prema you will teach one community a month. It’s an opportunity for you to get into the nitty gritty of your teaching and pick my brain about absolutely anything and everything. I’ve worked with people who have done their 200 hour and are not yet teaching and also with people who are already teaching, so wherever you are is the best place to start from.
