Teaching Vinyasa to Beginners 
with Laila Deardorff, MSPT 
Sunday, April 28, 2019

Vinyasa has become a very popular style of yoga in the last decade that requires significant flexibility and strength, which many beginner students do not have. When beginner students start with this type of a practice they may suffer injuries and miss out on learning proper alignment to help prevent such injuries in the future. 

 As a teacher, if you like practicing/teaching a more flow-like practice and want to explore more ways to share this with your beginning students, then this workshop is for you. Laila will show you ways you can work with the flow of the movement and the breath in ways that are accessible to beginners. In this workshop, we will work with some basic flows and learn ways to modify Sun Salutations with the use of props and pose modifications.

rachel lundberg
How do we develop our own voice and style as a teacher in a way that feels authentic to us? When we teach from our heart (our authenticity), it is a true act of service to our students. Learn about the science of heart/brain coherence, meditation techniques and breath work in this heart centered workshop. Our personal development and authenticity is the best platform to share our teachings and allow true shifts for our students. 

This workshop will include group work as well as peer teaching opportunities. A true invitation for expansion, growth, and community as teachers who desire to show up authentically for those we serve.

The value of a restorative practice is well known, but the poses can be difficult for the beginner dealing with joint and muscle tightness. This difficulty is magnified by various injuries or chronic conditions. Come learn how to make deep restful restorative poses accessible to the beginner. Class will include lecture, practice and discussion of various challenges to the teacher, from tight bodies to restless minds to not enough props.
