A Brilliant Resource for Yoga Teachers
“As a yoga teacher, there is the need to deepen and expand one’s teaching continuously. The best way to do this from experience, is to consistently attend classes and workshops to explore different teaching styles and techniques.
There is also the natural desire to stay centred, to come across inspiring teachings and be inspired. Yoga teachers are one often the busiest people, and here lies the dilemma – to have the time and energy to expand one’s teaching technique, and to keep that healthy balance in our personal energy and spiritual growth. Although nothing beats attending an actual class or yoga workshop, I have found listening and practising to Live Yoga Life audio-classes tremendously enriching for my teaching.”
Monica Anderson, Yoga Teacher – Founder Live Yoga Life
Tips for Use
Here are some tips on how to use these products for your teaching:
- Explore different styles. Yoga teachers can spend a lot of time travelling between teaching locations. These downloadable classes are an easy way to explore different styles at home and at your own time. One’s teaching style can also be limited to one’s geographical location or the particular studio we teach at. These portable classes are an easy way to find out what other styles of yoga have to offer.
- Learn from the best. These are classes by Australia’s top yoga teachers including leading teachers from the UK – you are learning from the best in the field.
- Visual Guides as class plans.You have access to good sample class plans – Printable Visual Guides come with each MP3 class. These are ready and available (no more stick drawings!!). You can also practice to the teacher’s voice and learn different ways to explain different yoga principles and poses.
- Explore Sequencing. Having the Visual Guides as sample class plans is a great way to learn and explore different effective ways to sequence a class. This is particularly handy for starting yoga teachers.
- Structuring Courses. Sequencing and structuring courses (a series of classes) effectively comes with time and experience. It is very handy to learn how experienced teachers take students on a progressive journey – learn how they build on information through the sets or series of classes they’ve designed so well here.
- Yoga Adjustments – Learning how to adjust a student properly and effectively also comes with time and experience. It is a separate art-form useful to know how to do well. Eve Grzybowski’s audio-eBook on “The Art of Adjustment” is a very good teaching medium. Apart from having over 30 years teaching experience under her belt, Eve is a teacher’s teacher and is known for her excellent adjustments. Her eBook puts good emphasis on your role and intention as the Adjuster. It also offers over 30 instructional audio-tracks on several different adjustments for the fundamental yoga poses.
- How to Teach Different Types of Students. Note the different categories we have for the products – these are basic types of students you will be teaching, i.e. beginners, busy working people, pregnant mums, postnatal mums, advanced practitioners, seniors, individuals who like static poses, individuals who like flowing classes, individuals with injuries or in need of yoga-therapy. The different classes allow you to learn different ways to teach these different profiles. What alternative poses do you teach a pregnant student? How about more elderly people who prefer to be seated? What are the basic needs of women who have just given birth? How do you teach with props? How do you teach without props? These are useful questions to explore techniques to.
- Preparation Work for Teacher Training Courses. If you run Teacher Training courses, you can add classes of your choice as part of your Pre-Work for your teacher-training courses. This will allow more depth to your course and save you time explaining some concepts. For example, you can require teacher-trainees to listen to X, Y, and Z class before teacher training commences. You can then discuss and break down this class in terms of sequencing as part of your “Class Plans and Sequencing” segment.
- Homework for Private Students. I encourage my students to get into the habit of home-practice and often give them assignments. I used to draw stick drawings and record my voice whenever they requested practices they can take-away with them when travelling, or simply to do on days where a private session or yoga class has not been scheduled. Today, I give them appropriate classes from this website to practice to whenever they feel like jumping on the mat!
