Principles of Alignment & Adjusting

Exploring Digital and Remote Yoga Teaching in a Post Covid World.

The art of yoga teaching has had to evolve rapidly this year.

As yoga teachers, we have all learned and quickly adapted to new methods and mediums to help us remain connected to our students with many of us making the switch from in person teaching, in real time to teaching yoga classes via zoom and livestream.

The reality is, that we do not know what yoga teaching will look like in a post Covid-19 world, and the necessity of online teaching may well remain with us well into the foreseeable future to some extent.

This course has been created to help both established yoga teachers and teachers in training to bolster and develop your ‘remote yoga teaching’ skills and to help your teaching adapt and flourish in the face of dramatically changed circumstances for you and your students.

During this fully interactive online Advanced Teaching Skills Workshop, you will learn and explore:

  • Teaching safely and effectively via Zoom.
  • Developing effective verbal cues for mechanical and subtle movement.
  • Honing your online teaching skills and the practicalities of teaching remotely.
  • Holding digital space.
  • Understanding alignment and adapting teaching to assist students to find and maintain their own ‘centre’.
  • Breath, Bandha & Dristhi; (Understanding and teaching Yoga ‘Tristhana’).
  • Identifying and correcting common misalignments in popular asanas whilst teaching remotely.
  • Understanding how to teach common asanas remotely safely and confidently.

Whilst this workshop is delivered remotely, it is still both very ‘active’ and ‘interactive’. AYAs Principal Dominique Santana Salerno will keep you in ‘felt experience’ as much as possible.

She promises to keep you engaged, connected, and evolving.
