36th Annual Yoga Vacation in Jamaica

John and Barbara Benagh continue the decades old tradition of welcoming students to their annual yoga vacation in Jamaica. As always, the topnotch yoga classes, easy camaraderie, warm sun, turquoise sea, and unique Jamaican culture weave a tropical spell that will enchant you in ways you can’t imagine. We have a 70% return rate and last year’s trip was sold out, so sign up early to save your place.

All of our courses are for students who have previous Hatha Yoga experience.

ACCOMMODATIONS
Yoga classes, meals and most accommodations are at a small comfortable cliffside hotel located at the water's edge. Each room has two double beds, an ocean-facing balcony, air conditioning and phone. There is cliffside swimming and a pool. The sand beach is a short drive away. The vacation includes a vegetarian buffet breakfast daily, Monday evening appetizers and a dinner party on Saturday. Other meals are available at many local restaurants, which offer a wide range of cuisine including vegetarian and excellent fresh seafood.

Teacher Training: The Art of Teaching Yoga - Berkeley Springs, WV.

to May 5

Teacher Training: The Art of Teaching Yoga - Berkeley Springs, WV.

So many elements go into the art of teaching. Obviously, knowledge of the subject is essential. To know the subject well means that first the teacher must be a good student. The importance of being a good student before being a good teacher is greatly underrated. Once one has substantial knowledge of the subject, the teacher must then convey this knowledge to the student. But it isn’t just knowledge that needs to be conveyed; the yoga teacher must attempt to create a somatopyschospiritual (whew) experience in the pupil as well as transmit information. A vast arsenal of skills is necessary to do this effectively; what makes this even more difficult is that each student learns in her/his own way, so different techniques are needed for each student.

Over the weekend, we’ll examine what it takes to be a good student, how to recognize the needs of your students, and methods for guiding them to a deeper understanding and experience of yoga. We will practice asanas and practice teaching to learn and hone some of the skills you’ll need to improve your practice and refine your teaching. As always, we will practice teach in the afternoon classes to refine your skills as a teacher. Optional early morning practice is open to all. $385 for weekend teacher training.

Eligibility:

At least two years of continuous yoga practice and steadiness in basic asanas, especially Standing Poses and Inversions.

Course Fee: $385 (Accommodations not included in course fee.)
