An introduction to teaching 1-2-1
8th & 9th October 2016 in Brighton
Teaching one-to-one is the traditional form of learning Yoga asana. It supports the uniqueness of the individual and deepens their awareness in a way that a group class can rarely offer. It allows the teacher to follow the flow and energy of the student freeing her from the more fixed position of teaching a class so that the session is student led, individually attuned and focused. This highlights the relational aspect of the work and when held mindfully, enriches the experience for both student and teacher.
This weekend offers a range of skills through experiential exercises to discover how bodies respond and process Asana. Open to students as an introduction who are new to my work and to former students who wish to consolidate their skills and understanding.
*Work through a range of poses in detail to deepen our understanding of what we’re asking the body to do.
*Discover how patterning is crucial for effectively working towards more complex poses and spotting when to simplify and modify. We will practice a range of pattering movements.
*Explore some underlying principles in Asana including how the overall felt sense and experience of a pose is greatly affected by the stability of the underlying structure (the bones). Once attuned to stability and grounding we will move to explore reach and expansion.
*Following on from a sense of structure we’ll explore energy as a tangible thing to both see and feel and work with containment and release of it.
*Practice some simple assists that empower the student to be fully present and avoid taking the student out of awareness and doing the work for them.
*Discuss the basics of leading a one-to-one session including sequencing, pacing, difficult dynamics and where the work becomes embodied, relational and therapeutic.
This training provides an introduction to the themes that are explored in my longer (three weekend) training – Embodied Relational Yoga Therapy – The Art of Teaching one-to-one, which I’ll be offering at triyoga in Spring 2017
