This curriculum based workshop series is designed to reinforce foundation teaching practices and support the ongoing learning and development vital for teachers who are not in regular contact with the school or teacher they completed their 200hrs YTT with.
Each 3hr workshop will cover a section of the first chapter of the yoga sutras ~ Samadhi Pada, chanting and unpacking the meaning of the verses. There will be a topic relating to anatomy and physiology, postural alignment and adjustments. The practical side of the workshops will draw from the sequence of postures in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series.
Participants can attend one workshop to accrue 3 CPD points with Yoga Australia.
Seven workshops will be run during 2022, each one building on the learning and skills of the pervious one.
