ONLINE YOGA COURSES
STRETCHING IN YOGA COURSE
Do Forward Bends help increase flexibility in our hamstrings? Can we stretch our muscles longer? How much flexibility do we need?
Join us for this in-depth workshop that explores the questions and movement science behind stretching as well as providing you with practical flexibility exercises and techniques to help your Yoga practice.
STRENGTH FOR YOGA COURSE
Strength requirements for Yoga Poses are often completely overlooked in Teacher Trainings and in the Yoga Classroom itself. How much strength do we need for a Downward Dog, Chaturanga, Arm Balances or Handstand? We will look at the different types of strength needed for different poses and work through practical ways of building up that strength inside and outside the Yoga Classroom.
YOGA TEACHING COURSE
A short 90 minute workshop that covers all of the basic elements that make up the skills needed to be an efficient communicator as a Yoga Teacher. How much should we demonstrate or should we do more verbal cueing? How many cues can a practitioner ‘hear’? How should we communicate to different levels of students? This workshop also includes 3 Teaching sequences for Teacher Trainees.
A 30 day Handstand Program that includes lectures and exercises to build up your Handstand in 30 days in a creative and fun Yoga style way. Included are many strength and flexibility exercises as well as skill tips and techniques to help you build the confidence to balance in Handstand.
YOGA POSE ANALYSIS COURSE
A 60 minute workshop that will show you how to break down a Yoga Pose into strength, flexibility and skill needs. You will also learn how to assess the needs of individual poses against your own body’s strength and flexibility. This is essential for your own practice, for teaching and must be done before the Peak Pose Sequencing module.
YOGA PEAK POSE SEQUENCING COURSE
There are many different ways of sequencing a Yoga Class. Peak Pose Sequencing is an intelligent sequencing system where we learn to put a fun flow Vinyasa class together to meet the needs of a Peak Pose, a more complex pose that is intermediate or above. We look at Forward Bends, Backbends, Inversions, Arm Balances and Twists. This workshop also includes 4 Peak Pose Teaching Sequences.
YOGA ADJUSTMENST COURSE
The question of whether to adjust or not is now a huge topic in the Yoga world. Should we adjust in Yoga? When should we adjust and how? What adjustments are appropriate for beginner Teachers to use? We discuss current opinion on adjustments and an exploration of when and how adjustment may be appropriate.
GENERAL YOGA ANATOMY COURSE
This in depth course covers many Yoga Anatomy topics. What is alignment in Yoga? Should we be symmetrical? Does Yoga build strength? What are the most common joint movements in a Vinyasa class? How much range of motion is required of the shoulders, and hips to do certain poses? We discuss common misconceptions and learn how to work with different bodies in Yoga Poses.
YOGA ANATOMY COURSES
CORE IN YOGA COURSE
What is Core? Do we need Core for Yoga? We look into popular opinion of what Core means and question why it is thought to be essential for all movement. We delve into the movement science behind core, and use science to help us determine what our muscles are doing in Arm Balances, Inversions and Backbends.
SHOULDERS IN YOGA COURSE
We use our shoulders a huge amount in Yoga. Our arms are up in Standing Poses, we use shoulder strength for Downward dog and Plank, and shoulder flexibility for Backbends and Binds. This workshop takes an in-depth look at how the shoulder works in yoga, as well as practical methods to increase strength and flexibility for different poses.
THE HIPS IN YOGA COURSE
Yoga requires a large amount of flexibility in our hips. But what allows us that flexibility? We look at the movement science behind different hip movements requirements in Standing Poses, Forward Bends, Backbends and Arm Balances. You will also learn practical skills to assess individual hip mobility in various poses.
THE SPINE IN YOGA COURSE
This workshop an practical explores all the movements of the spine in Yoga. We discuss spinal flexion in Forward Bends and Arm Balances, spinal extension in Backbends, and spinal rotation and lateral flexion in Twists. We will discuss the movement science behind where the spine moves the most, where will are likely to find restrictions and how to work with these findings in our practice.
THE WRISTS & ELBOWS IN YOGA COURSE
Most of us arrive in Yoga without ever having born weight on our wrists, and we find ourselves often in a Vinyasa class where a lot of time is spent on our arms. We look at the ranges of motion of the wrist, what we need for different Yoga Poses and how we can build wrist resilience over time.
THE LEGS IN YOGA COURSE
A strong Yoga practice requires us to develop strength and flexibility in our legs, specifically our hamstrings and quadricep muscles. We take an in-depth look at what the actions of these muscles are in different poses including Backbends, Forward Bends and Standing Poses from basic to more advanced poses. You will also learn how to train and develop resilient flexibility and strength in these muscles.
