Teachers Workshop 1:
Saturday Morning 9:30 – 12:00 € 65
Communication is Key:
In this essential workshop we learn to refine your use of language so that every word conveys your meaning, theme, pose cue or heartfelt dharma. We will refine verbal cues so that your voice is more potent and your instructions are more resonant, plus learn vocal skills, voice care, warm up techniques for teachers and you will leave feeling much more confident in your verbal cues to inspire your students. We will explore and practice a variety of types of postural demonstrations and pose improvement strategies with the right visual, auditory and kinaesthetic cues.
Music for Yoga – Bhakti and Divine Rhythm:
Music has been an integral aspect of devotion in India for Centuries. In the modern Western approach we use music as a way getting back int ouch our internal, natural rhythm. Music has been proven to great very deep emotional releases and gives the ability to relax, rejuvenate and open up our held tensions. However, intelligent, poetic and skilled use of music in the story arc of a yoga class can enhance the positive experience or can ruin a students experience in the room. In this workshop we will explore the art of bhakti as a tool to enhance your teaching: when to play music, how to manage the flow of the class, ideas for songs and how to lead your vocal arc while music is maintaining the class rhythm.
Open Class Saturday Afternoon 14:00 – 16:00 € 55
Another open class experience for you! Expect to experience a fully rounded class, chanting, music, and fantastic sequencing from Claire. Alignment, spiritual context, readings and esoteric anatomy are weaved into the session to leave you spiritually and physically uplifted.
Teachers Workshop 2:
Sunday Morning 9:30 – 12:00 € 65
Vinyasa Sequencing, Transitions and How to Cultivate your Creativity:
Creating clear, structurally sound and inspiring sequences, without leaning on complicated choreography is a key skill within teaching vinyasa. In this workshop, we will learn the elements of Vinyasa flow sequencing and teaching techniques to highlight breath and movement, rhythm and momentum of continuous practice without sacrificing sound alignment.
The Myth and the Metaphor:
Using the Traditional Texts within Context
Have you ever wanted to create clear workshop and class plans, integrate the traditional texts and lead inspiring classes that bow to the historical context of yoga? Then this workshop will help you to learn how to plan 6-months/1 year worth of classes, themes and dharmic awareness. We will look at how to practically fit in your favourite poems, speeches or write your own inspirational words, when is the right time and how to keep the class circle going while you talk. This skill alone is transformational for your confidence and for your continued ability to glean the best from your sadhana.
