Catering for ailments & teaching multi-level classes
- an online course for qualified yoga teachers
ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL in yoga
Most yoga students will come to a class at a time slot that best suits them. For the teacher this may be tricky - do you challenge your stronger students, but risk that the less strong won't keep up and are at risk of injury or do you cater to the lowest level of fitness but risk having the stronger students move on?
Perhaps you provide good options but still find the students aren't doing what keeps them safe and brings them maximal benefit.
The facilitator of this online training Tam, has 20 years experience of teaching classes and providing therapy to a broad range of student ability. She has taught at festivals to 100 people and managed small classes of 5 or 6 where every student needs something different. She is very comfortable with managing the needs of a multi-level group and in this training she's shares this knowledge.
This online course will be a mix of practice and theory discussion with homework between sessions. It will give teachers confidence in:
- assessing capability and therefore suitability of students for poses, particularly those that are potentially injurious positions.
- selecting a variety of options to cater for multiple abilities and injuries, but also that provide pathways of progression into poses over time.
- communication strategies to ensure students choose options that will bring them most benefit.
In between sessions you will be encouraged to research practices that are therapeutic for different ailments, the application of which will be then discussed with the group. Course content will be covered in 5 weeks and in between courses an informal facebook mentoring group (with live meetings) will support you to explore what you have learnt. From this we will build a nice little community of teachers integrating yoga therapy into their classes.
