Get familiar with the grooves of training! Meet the faculty,
support team, fellow students and get comfortable in your
new home- mi casa su casa!
You will be handed the first building blocks of yoga -
philosophy, asana analysis, anatomy, meditation and
oh so much more!
The voice is a great tool, no matter if you're a yoga teacher
or a normal human being - and the more we can control it
the greater power we have!
Introducing chakras and breathing techniques, and the wonders
of our nervous system.
We've got feet and arms and a spine, but how is it all connected
and how can we keep them strong, safe and flexible through the
poses of yoga? Your body is a wonderland, let's explore it!
The grand art of hands on assist is the theme of the weekend!
Get in touch (hehe) with your hands and feet as you add yet
another layer to your skills as a teacher.
With all the knowledge you've acquired so far, how are you supposed
to put it all together so that you can share it with others? Sequencing is
like making a soup, you have the ingredients but you need the
measurements, timings and toppings to make it tasty.
Bring out the apron, let's go!
A day to tie up the strings, adding the last bits of fun as we can see
the goal in the horizon. Graduation ceremony will be the final gathering
as we look back on all the grand adventures we've gone through, celebrating
the efforts, the insights, YOU as a teacher!
