Teacher Training

I offer teacher training in different locations and formats:

The Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles will be offering teacher training in the form of continuing education program modules. You can attend individual modules independent of the others.  In 2018, I will be teaching two weekend syllabus study modules focusing on the practice, alignment and techniques of  asanas. Each of the syllabus study module will focus on the progression of learning from the Introductory syllabus asanas and their stages up to the Intermediate Jr. II syllabus asanas. I will also be offering two 5-day Teaching Skills modules that will address the skills required to teach asanas on the Introductory and Intermediate Junior level syllabi. Examples of teaching skills covered are demonstration effectiveness, clarity of instruction, sequencing, observation, correction (including hands on adjustments), pacing and class control.

Syllabus Study Module #1: March 24-25

Syllabus Study Module #2: October 13-14

Teaching Skills Module #1: March 19-23

Teaching Skills Module #2: October 8-12

I lead an ongoing teacher training group on Fridays in the Silicon Valley (San Jose/Campbell, California) at Iyengar Yoga South Bay. The class covers teaching skills for the Introductory and Intermediate Junior level syllabi.
