  • the clear distinction between action and impact
  • being mindful about yin & yang elements when instructing Vinyasa Krama of asanas
  • refining instructions to deliver a more meaningful teaching result
  • integrating instructions that refer to counterforce within asanas

One-to-one teaching

  • efficient individual teaching: choosing content that suits the client’s request
  • taking your specific knowledge of anatomy for yoga teachers to a next level
  • building self-confidence to efficiently teach one-to-one
  • the importance of empathy

Various themes (that are significant for yoga teachers!)

  • offering support to free an unnatural/ restricted breathing pattern
  • the importance of a soft core (N.B.: ‘core’ in yoga is not the same as ‘core’ in the fitness industry)
  • being mindful about yin & yang / action vs. release / support vs. being supported

Only a yoga practice that brings about unity, which is a personal experience and therefore difficult to compare to somebody else’s experience, in combination with regular teaching and learning from the best teachers will enable you to teach your students without doubts but based on a deep support coming from life itself.
