Vinyasa Flow Morning Practice will take place on alternate days. These classes will demonstrate dynamic sequencing that will inspire you to teach your own classes. Our experienced teachers will guide you through each of the 2 hour sessions, taking you on a journey. Classes may work towards a peak posture, tell a story or set a particular technical intention. Classes will introduce you to new postures and techniques to achieve them. Each week, Vinyasa Flow Classes will cover Hip Opening, Back Bending and Strength.
Vinyasa Flow Teaching Methodology
The teaching Methodology Module has been designed to ease you into teaching. You will gain practice in teaching one to one and in turn in small groups. Each week, we will provide tools for you to develop your teaching skills. You will build your own 60 minute Vinyasa Flow Class that you will teach during the final week. Teaching Methodology sessions include: Opening a Class, Sequencing for Vinyasa Flow, Concise Instructions, Relaxation Techniques, Corrections and Modifications. Participating in each other’s classes and providing constructive feedback for your peers is a great way to learn and share ideas. Practice time is crucial here and time is allocated for you to practice teaching in order that you feel confident in teaching your peers. Our Vinyasa Flow Teaching Assistants are there to guide you through and provide you with the necessary support for this important module.
The program offers a strong foundation in Ashtanga Yoga, concentrating on the correct alignment of the postures of the Primary Series. Ashtanga Yoga Led Classes will take place on alternate mornings. Your Lead Teacher will guide you through the full Primary Series, modifying the more complex postures if needed. Our Assistant Teachers will support to ensure correct alignment.
Ashtanga Yoga Self-Practice will commence during the 3rd week of your training. Here, you will complete the series, at our own pace and in your own time. Your teachers will then check your alignment and possibly help you get deeper in the posture.
Anatomy and Alignment Classes
This is a daily 2 hour session that teaches the alignment of The Primary Series postures. You will learn about the Skeletal and Muscular Systems and how tis applies to postures. Our aim is that you leave with an awareness of your own body and its capabilities. During these classes, you will learn how to adjust your own practice in terms of modifying postures to a position that is suitable for you. This class provides the opportunity for us to really assist with your practice on a personal level. It provides the opportunity to explore your strength and flexibility and you will receive tips on how to get the most from your physical practice.
We have a series of workshops to deliver to help you achieve key postures. Workshops will include: Headstand, Chaturanga, Transitions, Arm Balances, Partner Yoga and Back Bending. Workshops take place at the end of the day and are delivered in a fun way. Our teachers will give you techniques to get you into some of these milestone postures. You will get lots of useful tips for you to incorporate into your Vinyasa Flow Class.
Pranayama (breathing techniques)
From your first day, you will be encouraged to bring awareness to your breath. In both Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Yoga, the breath initiates the movement from posture to posture. It is impossible to progress through the series without familiarity of the rhythm of your own breath, improving your focus. You will learn Pranayama techniques that will help you to lengthen your breath, increase your lung capacity and strengthen the nervous system. This is an important aspect of yoga. Pranayama is a great way to alleviate stress and tension, something that is often endured in modern society. Pranayama practice will allow you to build mental and emotional strength to help you maintain a healthy sense of wellbeing, not just on the YTTC but in your everyday life.
Classical Yoga Philosophy is interwoven throughout the program and you will be introduced to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, allowing you to make your own comparisons of classical and contemporary yoga, posing the question, ‘What is Yoga?’ These sessions are a great time for philosophical debate and indeed provided a welcome insight into the views of your fellow students. Each yoga class will have an intention with a spiritual message that will allow you to understand how we can incorporate philosophy into practice.
Scheduled activities will take place after dinner ad will include: Moonlight Flow, Bedtime Yin Yoga, Yoga Movies, Beach Bonfires, Local Festivals, Sunset Drumming and Hindu Mythology Story Telling.
