YOGA METHODOLOGY TRAINING - TEACHER TRAINING MODULE

 

SEQUENCING

The sequence of the poses in the class is the most powerful tool the yoga teacher has to make a yoga class to be memorable. During this training we will cover these topics:

  • Themes, sub-themes and peak poses
  • Correct structure of a yoga class
  • Practical exercises and discussions

 

ADJUSTMENTS

Adjustments, assistances, support, are all ways the yoga teacher helps the student feel the asana deeper. A well timed adjustment allows the student to feel how a pose should feel, imprinting their muscle memory and serving as a stepping stone into a better practice. During this part of the training we will cover:

  • Adjusting principles (how, when, to whom, when to and when not to)
  • How to modify an adjustment based on the level of the student
  • Hands on practice for tens of poses (hundreds if time permits:)

 

DELIVERY

Sequencing and adjustments are tools available to teacher but at the end of the day all that matters is how much love you are able to pour into your class. Throughout the training we will explain ways to make your class inclusive, personal, motivational, meaningful, inspirational… We will discuss topics like:

  • The overarching goal of a yoga class
  • Tools to connect with your audience
  • Tools to help your students improve their practice

SUNDAY WORKSHOPS

 

HAMSTRINGS AND THE LIMITLESS LEG POWER (K2465), 10:30 - 13:00


Open the cap and uncover the enormous amount of energy stored in your legs. Learn to see and use them as the best helper. In every pose, from the obvious standing poses to inversions or arm balances, the legs have so much entity and presence that, single handedly, they can decided the fate of our asanas more so than any other body part. If you have tight hamstrings, thighs, knee/ankle issues, this class IS for you. If you can fall asleep in Splits, this class is ALSO for you. We’ll study lots of stretches, ways to work with them to gain flexibility/mobility. We’ll also start to tap into their vast potential, planting some seeds so our practice can grow from there.


SHOULDERS AND HEART OPENERS (K2466), 14:30 - 17:00


Backbends are not just about a bendy spine. A healthy shoulder mobility is necessary to accommodate those degrees of folding. The neck and front of our bodies, especially from the shoulder girdle to the low ribs, have tremendous range and can amplify and help our back’s work. Unfortunately, that area is heavily guarded, protected, sometimes shut down due to our lifestyles. Come turn back the clock, decompress, lift some weight off your shoulders, reset and open your heart and mind to new possibilities. Learn stretches that’ll help you in your daily life as well as your personal practice and leave rejuvenated and transformed. No prerequisites required. This class is for all levels and degrees of flexibility (or lack of!).

Carmen Aguilar 

E-RYT 200 (@cyogalab), had completed an Engineering degree and then a Masters degree, spoke 4 languages and was deciding in what direction to launch her career when she found yoga. A seemingly crazy choice at the time, she dropped everything and devoted all her energies to the study of this discipline. The deeper she got into it the more it fascinated her.
During the first years she studied with every teacher she could find, traveling wherever was necessary, completed 5 different Teacher Trainings while she started to develop her own style and her daily practice. Devoting to it 3 hours, 7 days a week, she has been able to reach levels few practitioners share. However, her strength is not in her practice but in her teaching. She has been teaching yoga for more than 16 years and during that time she’s developed a unique teaching style, cYoga, intended to make her students achieve their best both physically and mentally.
In her own words: ‘cYoga came from a craving for an intense practice: my mind wanted to try things my body couldn’t follow but pretty soon I realized how much sequencing and warming up properly affected the outcome, so I wouldn’t injure and could practice easily on a daily basis. An intense asana practice is not only cleansing and rejuvenating, but it can also change our beliefs and the way we’re wired. Our body is the most tangible vehicle to access our very own essence. Stepping on our mat is an amazing and precious experience every single time! With cYoga I intend to provide each student with that kind of practice.’ In March 2010, she was inspired to open her own yoga studio (The Lab) in Chicago, where she resides today with her husband Moises, to continue to share her yoga journey with others.
