The teacher training modules are designed to train not just teachers but the whole person. The emphasis in each module is contemplative practice but each has a flavor or it's own. The Form & Function training provides the anatomical foundations that are essential in teaching safe, effective, and functional yoga classes. The Subtle Body training covers various ancient systems that have mapped the pathways of subtle energy (prana, qi) through the body. These are the foundations that the other modules build upon.
FORM & FUNCTION:
ANATOMY + POSES
In this module, we cover all the anatomical knowledge you need to teach an effective and functional yoga class. We use the Grilley Model of 14 skeletal segments, 10 myofascial groups, and 7 archetypal asanas (14-10-7) as our base. The Grilley Model is a very intelligent way to see bodies and guide the student into their optimal position.
