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. I will be teaching one of the modules from March 28-29. In addition to sessions on asana practice and teaching skills, Sanskrit scholar, John Casey will teach a session on Patañjali’s Yoga Sutras.

I will also be offering a 5-day Teaching Skills course addressing 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. The dates of the course coincide with my practice intensive. For a full 5-day immersion, you have the option to attend both the intensive and teaching skills course.

Teaching Skills Course: September 21-25, 2020

I will be teaching a workshop for teachers on working with trauma. The workshop will include a presentation by a social worker on the causes and manifestations of trauma and how to help those with trauma to build resilience. Sponsored by Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics, the workshop will be held at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles.
