While students learn about their own personal yoga practice, they will also learn the skills needed to share yoga with students. By learning concepts and techniques involved with teaching yoga to others, students will gain a better understanding of what it means to live a yogic life and spread the benefits of yoga to others. Our yoga classroom will be the setting for students to hold their own instructional sessions during their course.
It is important to remember why we teach yoga. As a student in our school, it is very important that we first support our personal practice of yoga and its lifestyle so that we may live what we teach. As we grown closer to our own practice, our words and techniques associated with instruction become a truth that we are sharing with others. Students will understand the importance of adapting teaching strategies to their students based on student skill level and classroom dynamics. Basic preparation before teaching and skills associated with the flow and rhythm of the moment are very useful but require practice and experience.
