This training is designed for students interested in deepening the foundation of their own yoga practice and/or learning the basics of teaching yoga. Our Level 1 intensive will provide students the ability to teach a basic Beginner Yoga class with an understanding of basic yoga poses. It is also suitable for those who wish to learn more about yoga but do not wish to teach. This program is ideal for those who want to build up their skills and confidence level before entering a 200 hour program or wish to start teaching yoga before a 200 hour program is undertaken. Upon completion of the intensive, you will receive a certificate of completion from Experience Yoga Studios.
This training will specifically include:
- How to teach over 30 basic yoga poses including variations, modifications, use of props, and common misalignments. These poses include: Centering and Warm-ups · Sun Salutations · Basic Standing Poses · Basic Balancing Poses · Simple Backbends · Forward Bends · Basic Twists · Supported Shoulder Stand · Savasana
- An Introduction into Yoga Philosophy and History
- Basic breathing and meditation techniques
- How to begin and end a class
- How to plan a class: sequencing and theme-building
- The Art of Teaching: how to use voice and language, observations skills, tips etc.
- The Business of Yoga: how to find a job
- Practice teaching and lots of supportive feedback
- Weekly homework designed to help you plan your class slowly and build your teaching skills over time.
- Practice and personal journal writing
To complete this program, you must:
- Attend all sessions (if you have to miss a session, arrangements can be made on a case by case basis
- Read the manual and supplemental materials
- Complete weekly journaling and/or homework (it won’t be graded)
- Cultivate a regular yoga practice: You must take a yoga class or watch a yoga video once a week.
- In addition, you must practice at home at least once a week (at least 20 or 30 minutes) preferably much more.
