We will begin with the foundations of tristhanam – the importance of it and some history behind it.
We will examine the organic connection between the bandhas and the breath, and how this is built into the practice.
We will look at teaching Ashtanga yoga in an accessible inclusive way, that honours boundaries, consent, whilst being grounded in tradition.
We look extensively at the postures, the variation of approaching them through alignment or pranic flow, and how to read bodies to work out what is the best approach.
We will learn the primary series Sanskrit count and practice teaching it.
We will differentiate dogma from nuance and most importantly encourage you to think critically and listen to your intuition.
Basic yoga philosophy will be interwoven into the teachings.
