Find the Teacher Within: Deepening and Refining Your Asana Practice
A teacher training Intensive with Maty Ezraty
As yogis in the modern era, we are blessed with many teachers and opportunities to learn and to grow. Yet the greatest source of learning comes from turning toward the knowledge within oneself. The foundation for every yoga teacher is a strong practice comprised of deep reflection and understanding. When we are intimate with our practice, we teach with confidence and clarity. Skillful teaching is itself a form of yoga where the practice is one of attuning to the needs and conditions of each individual with compassion and sensitivity. Ultimately, the role of the teacher is to help students discover the path that is right for them. How to facilitate this process, and how to encourage and inspire the best in each student—that is the art of teaching.
Integrative Asana Practice
In this training we will explore the art of teaching through a dynamic practice steeped in both the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. In a welcoming and uplifting environment, Maty will also focus on universal principles that apply across all yogic traditions, modeling an open approach to discovering what is most effective. Meeting over the course of seven days, each will include five hours of practice, instruction, and discussion. Focusing on a different theme each day, we will begin with a one-hour asana class that will be built on during the afternoon workshop.
Yoga Essentials—Expanding Your Toolkit
With great precision and clarity, Maty will cover the primary tools needed to teach yoga to others. In addition to studying the fundamental yoga postures, topics will include:
- Blueprint Poses
- Universal actions and alignment
- Reading and understanding bodies
- Hands-on adjustments
- Problem-solving for common injuries
- Purpose and use of props
- Variations and modifications
This is essential training for all teachers and is also valuable for non-teachers who wish to deepen and refine their asana practice. Partner work and observation of bodies will be prime tools for learning. All levels of practitioners are welcome.
