Teacher Training: The Art of Teaching Yoga - Berkeley Springs, WV.
May
3
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.)

Between Classes enjoy the laid back funky charm of Berkeley Springs or just relax in the tranquility of Serendipity’s peaceful forest setting.

Discussion Group: A Look Back at the Iyengar Yoga National Convention and the Importance of Community - Bethesda, MD

Discussion Group: A Look Back at the Iyengar Yoga National Convention and the Importance of Community - Bethesda, MD

  • Unity Woods Yoga Center - Bethesda, MD (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The IYNAUS National Conventions, which take place every three years, serve many purposes. They provide an opportunity for students of all levels to learn from one of the most senior Iyengar teachers in the world. This year, Abhijata, Guruji’s granddaughter, is the teacher, as she was at the last Convention. 

The gathering is also a chance to meet other members of the community that we might otherwise never have occasion to do. And it is an opportunity for many to visit with old friends who share the challenges and joys of this powerful practice. This shared experience then seeps out and feeds a sense of community, not only at the Convention, but across the country. The interconnectedness that occurs in community mirrors and fosters the feeling of interconnectedness that we touch within ourselves as we dive deeper into our practice. 

In the discussion, those of us who attended the Convention and those who did not will share our thoughts and experiences and take a deeper look at the whole idea of community and how it relates to our practice and understanding of yoga.

All are welcome. Free. Refreshments will be served. Bethesda studio. 6:45-8:30pm.

(301) 656-8992; www.unitywoods.com
