300h Yoga Teacher Training Practicum Session-Intro Series Specific
Apr 21, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm| $100
An intro series is a great way to break down the basics of yoga and help cultivate a person’s confidence to attend public classes or to simply create a home practice. As teachers, we have the opportunity to impart the basics of yoga in a careful, sequential way so that a person’s ongoing yoga practice—of any style—is informed and enhanced.
So how would one break down the basics of this vast body of practice in 6 weeks and inspire and inform someone who may have never stepped foot inside a yoga studio? This is your opportunity to practice doing just that!
As preparation for this practicum, create a basic outline of a 6-week “Intro to Yoga” series, including the primary focus of each week. Come prepared to teach JUST ONE 60-minute “Intro to Yoga” class to your practicum cohort.
The 60-minute class you choose to teach should be fully fleshed out, including:
- Warm-ups, movements/postures, cool down
- Simple alignment concepts that apply to the poses you teach (tip: avoid yoga jargon or lingo)
- Suggestions for alternative actions / accessible movements for brand new practitioners (tip: assume that among the students you will have someone with “bad” knees, wrist sensitivity, “tight” hamstrings…)
This practicum will include peer teaching, and receiving and giving feedback.
Date and Time:
Sunday, April 21, 11:00am – 4:00pm
Participation in this practicum will earn you 1.0 hour of “active teaching” (you need 5.0 total for YA certification) and 4.0 hours of Contact Hours with a Non-lead Trainer.
In 1991, Beth took two summer classes: DOS Programming and Yoga. The computer information didn’t stick, but yoga captured her attention from the very first class: she felt taller and quieter (miraculous!). Since 1994, Beth has been a student at Seattle Yoga Arts, and how she evolved to wear a leotard to work is still a bit of a joyful mystery to her. Inspired by Denise and her own “unfolding”, Beth left her corporate job to teach yoga in 2003. She achieved Anusara-Inspired licensing in 2007 and is an E-RYT 200 Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. Beth offers a warm and compassionate instruction style that stems from her love and enthusiasm for the practice. She continues to be inspired, pulled, and prodded by life in all sorts of directions.
