January Teacher Gathering
Join us to explore “the sequence of learning the asanas” and how experiential understanding of general concepts can be extended to our new system of certification, Level 1 and beyond. Our first 2024 Teacher Gathering takes place on, Saturday Jan 20 from 1:30 – 4:30pm at Live Yoga in White Rock.
Preparation before we meet:
This topic is in direct response to one of the suggested topics from the teacher survey. To help make our time together as productive as possible please consider the following:
1) Read Basic Guidelines for Teachers of Yoga, Chapter 4 “The Sequence of Learning the Asana”, p. 39-56. Reference the former system syllabi to supplement your understanding of both the order of learning pose to pose, and stages of the pose from syllabus to syllabus. Optionally, with beginner’s mind, practice one sequence (e.g. Week 12) and look to see how the 3 prior week’s sequences change week to week.
2) Study Weeks 1-28. Note when a particular family of asana is introduced, and what earlier poses (if any) support the learning of that family of asanas, and the sequence within the family. For example with inversions, Ardha Halasana feet on wall, Eka Pada Sarvangasana, Salamba Sarvangasana, Karnapidasana etc.
3) Choose a Level 1 syllabus asana from RIMYI Certification and Assessment Guidelines which isn’t in Weeks 1-28 of Basic Guidelines or an asana from Level 2 or 3 syllabus and consider how it would be introduced to students who are ready to learn that asana. Work out some of the details in your practice.
We encourage you to sign up as soon as you can and email us to cancel your registration should your plans change.
