Bespoke Yoga: Demystifying 1-1 Teaching

Teaching yoga in a class setting requires a different skill set to teaching clients on a 1-1 basis. So how do we confidently gain and safely utilise these skills? In this 1-day workshop Sarah Litton will be offering practical tips and skills to prepare you for teaching on a 1-1 basis.

Principles covered in the workshop:

Yoga Asana and Postural Analysis

No individual is perfectly aligned physically. We will understand how to identify and record postural imbalances. If not specifically addressed, these can become greater the more we practice, thus increasing the potential for injury. We will then progress into studying the correct alignment of various asana, and how we can use this template to rebalance misalignments discovered in the posture session. By learning how to identify these tendencies in our clients, we are more able to assist them to self-correct with intelligence, thus bringing harmony to their bodies and practice over time.

Philosophy and Spirituality

By incorporating the philosophy of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, we can learn how to balance the mind as we align the body, which can help to decrease anxiety and stress levels.

Koshas and the Energetic Body

The internal alignment of the Bandhas (via the three body diaphragms), the correct mechanics of breathing and the understanding of the Koshas, offer our clients the practical means by which to deepen inner awareness and to create the optimum conditions required for a safe and life-long practice.
