Deepening the Process
If you want to deepen your practice or train to become an Iyengar yoga teacher these workshops are for you. We’ll practice asanas and pranayama in depth and discuss them, as well as study the yoga sutras and yoga philosophy.
Learning to teach can inspire our own practice and growth as we pass on what we learn.
For those wanting to teach you’ll learn how to
- guide students safely through the asanas in the Iyengar Introductory Level syllabus
- demonstrate and communicate clearly and effectively
- organise a class so it runs smoothly
- speak to the body so it listens
- what to do if a student is menstruating, pre or post natal or a senior citizen
- avoid exacerbating any injuries students may have
- study the science validating the effectiveness of yoga
Those wanting to train as teachers and sit the Iyengar Yoga assessment will need to attend all workshops, attend at least two classes a week, assist Linda in classes and attend at least one retreat during the year.
Those wanting to attend the workshops out of interest or to simply deepen their practice are not required to attend all workshops.
Please send an expression of interest to Linda by March 15.
Deepening the Process will occur over six weekends in the year. Attendance at the first Friday of the month evening practices and retreats is also encouraged.
Workshops also involve yoga research and study and the presentation of assignments, either in written, video or audio format.
