one month transformational yoga journey
Embarking on a holistic inner yoga journey is an important step and can reap rewards for a lifetime.
My general approach is to keep classes small. This allows me to get to know all students and adjust the order of teaching the required curriculum accordingly. I teach all classes personally and encourage questions and class participation in discussions. This course is designed in accordance with the requirements of a 200 hours yoga teacher training of the yoga alliance.
There are many aspects in the asana class. I teach, not only the traditional positions, but the benefits. Also the identification of individual bodies with their strengths and limitations, alternative positions to accommodate injury and disease is important. This information helps you be more attuned. Emphasis is put on listening to our bodies and act according. Of course, experience and time also make us better practicioners, so everyone will receive individual advice before the course ends.
Besides asana classes, I teach about human nature, our own included. The better we understand ourselves, the better we can deal with life itself. In philosophy class we discuss how to adapt ancient teachings to the modern world. The anatomy class allows us to see the body from the inside and picture in our minds what is happening during asana class and how our living pattern affects our health, both mental and physical.
The course is a time of personal growth - the cocoon to the butterfly.
