Asana is perception. During our program we will break down each individual Posture/Asana.
For example - Triangle Pose- How the back leg heel, ankle, calf, shin, knee, inner leg, other leg, thigh rotation, hip direction, hand, elbow, front leg; each small part of the bone and muscles work differently in every pose. It’s like a cooking recipe- precise. Learning Asana is a science and art; finding where the pose is actively and passively working the body, the benefits and precautions, and where Bhava/Vibes come from; the pose- calming or uplifting. It's a beautiful combination of modern and yogic science.
Science of breathing - a process of oxygenating the body. We will explore pranayama in different scriptures and books. Ten kinds of prana, nine different kinds of Pranayama, Nadis/energy channel-helping to uplift the prana toward the crown chakra and open sushumna nadi. Open thousands of chambers of the lungs, unlocking energy of the body. Inhaling the life force and exhaling the unnecessary.
Mudra is specific hand gestures. Our body is made of five elements and the Imbalance of different elements causes us disease or sickness. We will practice different mudras as they are the key to good health.
It is a seal/lock in the body. We will learn three bandha, giving direction to prana- energy.
Six Cleansing techniques. Kriyas give a platform for Asana practice. During our training we will practice Jal Neti, Rubber Neti, Kunjal Kriya. It’s a great way to detox the body and bring clarity to the mind
Sound has deep effects on the human psyche. By repeating different energy bond words we can lift our consciousness. We will chant different sacred mantras during our program.
There are hundreds of kinds of meditation techniques. During our program we will do many types of guided meditations and self meditation.

Qualities of a teacher
The student learning process
Business aspects of teaching yoga (including marketing and legal)
a) Hands on adjustments:
Long time yoga practitioners, beginners, and yoga teachers- we all need self correction and the right knowledge of adjustment in different asana and yogic kriyas. Adjustment is very specific, giving adjustments according to different body structures. It’s an art and comes with a lot of small details. Learning to be professional and effective while respecting the personal space of others.
B) Props use and modification:
Using props and modification is a great help. It is used as a ladder, making progress step by step. It’s important for both the beginner and advanced yogi. Using the right modifications for each individual, making yoga accessible for all age groups and all abilities.
For example - Some students can’t sit on the floor. They can still practice asana, meditation, and pranayama on a chair. For advanced students props are also helpful in taking their practice to the next level.
