This workshop Series will provide the resources and time to learn the theory behind the alignment of yoga postures and practice the Asana with balance of effort and ease. Focus will be given to the effective ways of inspiring students in a creative and knowledgeable way to benefit optimally. How to create and offer a safe and nurturing atmosphere that invites practitioners into a memorable practice of yoga. It will reflect on all methods of teaching including: principles of observation, demonstration, assisting, correcting, instruction, teaching styles, and core qualities of successful teachers.

We will practice dealing with varying needs found in practitioners and will cultivate your skills in a supportive, practical, hands-on environment. You will practice, even photograph and make notes on detailed demonstrations before giving and receiving adjustments with partners of different shape and sizes.




Breathing courage right into the experience of our students!

Teaching might mean providing assists that not only inform but transform is a skill built via practice, repetition, and feedback. This will focus on fundamentals, new approaches to old assists and practice via repetition and time. To invite a student to transform within a pose or within their life is a gift and a responsibility. To speak to students and to stand as a leader requires preparation, introspection, and the courage to speak from experience.
