John Scott Yoga / FINEYOGA CPD CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTNovember Thursday 28 – Monday 2 December 20195 FIVE DAY INTENSIVE (This workshop is available only to graduates of John Scott’s 200 hrs TTC.)


CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. It refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond your initial TTC training. CPD is important because it provides benefits to the individual teacher, their shala, yoga as a profession and the receiving student. CPD ensures your capabilities keep pace with the current standards of others in the same field. The purpose of professional development is to continue improving individual knowledge and skills in order to increase the standard of Yoga Teaching as the yoga student consciousness and world consciousness continues to expand.Presenting Tutors: John Scott (New Zealand),Vaayu (Korea),Dorothy Loh (Hong Kong).

Vaayu and Dorothy are both SENIOR 500 JSY Teachers.

Physical strength – 0-50%?

Mental strength – 100%?

Adjustments – bodywork:

– Intimacy and distance

– small body VERSUS big body

– soft and firm touches

– towards a therapeutic approach

YOGA THERAPY as Taught by Manju Pattabhi Jois

1. Yoga must be adapted to the student, NOT, vice versa.

2. Yoga is a therapy, regardless of what form, intensity of practice or levels/series.

3. Yoga is a discipline.

4. Yoga is opportunity, prosperity and unification > heal, balance and unite.

5. Yoga Chikitsa, Nadi Shodana and Sthira Bhaga are ALL yoga therapies.  Asanas in each “Series” should not be seen separately from one series to the other > Practice anything you feel it’s needed to your body!!
