Full Description

Together, we will examine the history, philosophy, and technique of yoga, as well as hone our teaching skills in a welcoming, experimental, and forgiving environment. It is our hope that students of this training will walk away with the capacity to ignite their students' innate desire to rejoice, connect, and thrive in an ever-changing world.

We invite you to join Valerie Moselle, along with special guest teachers, for an in-depth exploration of modern yoga.

In this training, you will learn to:

-Create appropriate sequences for beginner, intermediate, and advanced yoga classes.

-Teach basic breathing techniques to calm, brighten, and energize students.

-Guide students through meditation practices that awaken presence and promote energetic balance.

-Physically demonstrate and verbally cue students in a way that inspires presence of mind, body, and spirit.

-Understand important alignment and anatomy principles as they relate to all categories of yoga poses (asana): standing, core, hip openers, forward bends, backbends, twists, arm balances, inversions.

-Adjust students in a way that honors individual needs and body types.

-Alter sequences and poses for students with common injuries ( back pain, high blood pressure, knee injuries, carpel tunnel) and conditions ( pregnancy, arthritis).

-Deepen and enhance your personal yoga practice.
