This Module is the third in a year-long series of Online Mentoring Programs designed to support yoga teachers in their continued education and growth. The course will focus on a single foundational text to the study and practice of yoga; this year we will be working with the Bhagavad Gita.
Through this module you learn to improve your verbal teaching skills. We start with clear language and instruction, and from there add visual and sensate cues. You’ll go on learning how to link your instructions, to speak to your student’s nervous system as well as their musculoskeletal system, and how to use imagery effectively.
