INTRO TO TEACHING YOGA WITH THEMES (offered in 2 parts) for teachers & practitioners withPam Gaither

HATHA YOGA FLOW
Location: Yoga Mandala
Part 1: Saturday 9/30/2017 from: 1:00 – 4:00 pm  $65 (Part 1)
Discover how using themes can turn your yoga classes from mundane to memorable.
We all have yoga classes that stand out in our minds. Perhaps we found ourselves in a puddle of cathartic tears during Savasana (Corpse Pose) or euphoric after rising into an unassisted Sirsasana (Headstand) for the first time. Something that the teacher said, or simply her way of being, can stick with us for years. As yoga teachers, we all want to deliver such classes. We want to touch our students’ hearts, even long after they leave their yoga mats. So, then, what is it that sets an exemplary yoga class apart from a forgettable one? Is there a method behind the magic? This introduction to the art of theming part 1 will show you:
  • How to take the mystery out of teaching with a theme
  • Fundamentals of creating and weaving a theme into your class sequence
  • How to theme a yoga class with authenticity and meaning
  • Methods to make your class inspiring and transformational, deepening your impact as a teacher
  • Where to find inspiration
  • Sample themes

This 3-hour session builds on the foundational teachings of Part 1.

  • Introduce your theme in a captivating, powerful way
  • Seamlessly weave themes with alignment instruction
  • Create a practice sequence that integrates theme(s) into your teaching
  • Find your authentic voice that allows themes to flow naturally from within you.
