Teacher Training: Teaching Students at Different Levels - Berkeley Springs, WV.
Apr
27
to Apr 29

Teacher Training: Teaching Students at Different Levels - Berkeley Springs, WV.

Needless to say, not all students are the same. How then do we address appropriately the different needs of different students? One way is to have classes of different levels and to teach based on the level of the class. Many teachers, however, do not have the luxury of having different levels. Everyone – beginners, intermediate students, advanced students - comes to the same class. What to do in that kind of setting?

In this workshop, we’ll examine criteria to establish different class levels, how to present the material being taught to different levels, ways to teach a mixed level class, and more. 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.

Friday, April 27th

  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm  Criteria and Syllabi for Class Levels
  • 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm   Practice Teaching

Saturday, April 28th

  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm  Adapting Asanas for Different Levels
  • 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm  Practice Teaching

Sunday, April 29th

  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm  Teaching Mixed Levels: Managing the The Three Ring Circus
  • 12:00 pm - 2pm  Brunch

For questions or to register for the workshop please visit Unity Woods Yoga Center or call 301-656-8992.
