The 170 hour Windfire Yoga Teaching Skills Intensive provides a deep and thorough traning in the art of teaching yoga dynamically.
The Teaching Skills Intensive is only open to those who have completed the Depth Intensive or those who are already 500 hour trained yoga teachers.
It takes place in two parts which can be taken together or individually.
Each Part is based on action and experience, and all theory will relate to and be derived directly from the practical techniques required to teach yoga dynamically.
Whatever your style of praxis, and whatever you want to teach, you will be shown how to do so more effectively and satisfyingly on the basis of the nature of the human bodimind and its relationship to consciousess. This will take place within a detailed exploration of the art of progressive instruction (Vinyasakrama), upon which all learning, and therefore teaching, depends.
PART ONE Presents a soild and immediately applicable foundation for teaching yoga dynamically. You will be taught how to use simple movements and accessible stillness to put your students safely, deeply and powerfully in touch with their bodies, while establishing the neuromuscular pathways that functional integrity requires.
PART TWO Uses the dynamic flows of Xandranamaskar and Suryanamaskar to sensitise and open the whole body. The emphasis of the training is the sensitisation of the joints, mobilisation of the muscles and integration of the whole body. You will also learn how to teach the bandhas and ujjayi breathing directly from accessible action.
