History and branches of yoga

Key poses of yoga
Daily study and practice of postures and their alignment, adjustments, energetic and health benefits, modifications, and effective teaching cues.
Understanding the subtle body - Prana and the Chakras
Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, what lay beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing prana, this prime life force, and how it moves through the Chakras or energetic centres. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.
The science of breath
The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice. The breath has a profound influence on the nervous system and a deep effect on life quality, both on and off the yoga mat. Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to “advanced” pranayama.
Sequencing and structuring
You will learn how to use the toolkit offered in the yoga system to create meaningful sequences. A good class is not just anatomically sound but also meaningful on more subtle levels.
Meditation and the mind
Understanding your own mind and its makeup is an important part of being a guide in any practice. The power of meditation is significant. You will study and practice a variety of techniques that are aimed at the development of your own personal meditation practice and being able to hold space when teaching.
Introduction to Ayurveda
A fascinating and practical science of life from ancient India that offers tools to better understand yourself and others therapeutically through the context of the doshas, gunas, and prana.
