200-HR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CURRICULUM NYC
Asana (Posture) Classic postures are taught in precise detail including safety precautions and modifications/variations. For each posture students are encouraged to understand the human anatomy as well as differences pertaining to the male and female body. You learn to move through the yoga postures with grace and control, gain the skills to pass these details on to your own students and gain knowledge how to modify postures for different needs and body types.
The art of teaching yoga is to know the different variations for the asanas (Yoga poses). By offering the right variation to the right student and offering the use of props, you prevent the beginners from hurting themselves and help the more advanced yogis and yoginis to still be challenged. By doing so you create a very rich teaching awareness that suits all yoga students regardless of their abilities.
Recognizing the fact that people absorb information differently, we give you tools to convey the instructions in a variety of ways to achieve the desired results. We teach how to recognize students who absorb information primarily verbally, visually or kinesthetically. One of the most critical of the teaching modalities is the practical hands-on approach to correcting the postures. Proper adjustment is often critical for maintaining safety for the student. It also allows for taking the more advanced students to the next level of their abilities.
