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.
