(Full back arch) Urdhva Dhanurasana, Ardha Padmasana (Half Lotus pose variations) plus forwards bends, seated twists and standing twists, and how to incorporate these into various yoga styles, vinyasa and slow paced Hatha.
Plus intermediate Pranayamas and sequencing with Bhandas (pranic seals) kumbakas (breath retentions). We will learn about the roots of and how to practice and teach the concepts of Vipassana, Jhana and Metta meditation.
This course will help you to massively give your Yoga practice and teaching an upgrade and re-inspiration. It will deepen your understanding, not just about the correct alignment, technique and performance but how to improve your general teaching style and how to help impart this knowledge and when to incorporate them into your own classes and practice sessions.
