Re-imagining How and Who You Teach
Students who see others flowing in a power vinyasa class often think: "I could never do that." They create roadblocks that inhibit them from stepping onto the mat and trusting that their bodies can - and want to - experience both dynamic flowing movement and long-held stationery poses. They stop themselves from walking across the threshold of a power vinyasa class and learning the techniques, modifications, and assists that allow each of them to practice power vinyasa in their unique ways. Teachers often do the same, thinking, "I could never teach that."
Rewire Your Mind, Transform Your Body
For yoga teachers and students alike, power vinyasa provides another path to evolve mentally and physically, to grow strong in mind and body. Whether students are beginners or advanced practitioners, led by a skillful power vinyasa teacher they can unleash hidden strength, find fluidity, nurture focus and clarity. In Baron Baptiste's sequence of 53 poses, linked by movement to breath, you will learn to help your students unleash their own perfect process. What is the "power" behind power vinyasa yoga? Where does the "fire" of the practice come from and how is it maintained with ease? How do you teach students of many levels? Based on the teachings of Baron Baptiste and other master teachers, students will learn the use of the dynamic ujjayi breath, alignment in moving and stationery poses, and how to confidently teach students power vinyasa with serenity and clear direction.
