Exploring the stages in teaching in Asana: Vinyasa Krama with Hilary Anne Brown
Learn strategies for building an intelligent, safe and yet dynamic Vinyasa Yoga class: from intention to savasana, with attention on integrating different levels of students in one class.
How do you decide what to teach, in what order and for what effect? How can you create a deeper experience in your class? What asanas prepare you for other asanas? How should you sequence a series of classes over weeks?
In this course you will explore the building blocks for sequencing an intelligent and satisfying yoga class or course.
Explore both the bigger picture and the finer details of teaching a great class so you can reach your students deeper, build awareness and inspire people for years to come. You will leave the course better informed on how and why you might want to work in a more creative path and be able to adapt these ideas directly to your own teaching style and needs of your students.
We will look at the structural as well as energetic interrelationships among postures and how you can learn to use these relationships to build intelligent and safe classes. We’ll explore the bio-mechanics of how the body can open systematically, juxtaposed against gravity, to help you bring both dynamic alignment instructions and insight into your classes.
Discover how understanding family groups of postures in a constructive and cohesive way will help you make good choices and allow you to build your way towards peak poses, multi-level classes, balanced practices and be able to make classes with specific themes.
Learn about concept called “vinyasa krama” which helps you understand how to bring someone further in their practice using correct stages of teaching & learning with the body and mind. Knowing when to push and when to soften is key.
