In this weekend module, senior DYC instructors Jessica OKeefe and Carla Rudiger will explore the many choices that teachers have to bring students to a more conscious state of awareness. As a Vinyasa instructor how do you draw the students into their own internal experience so that their lives become transformed?
Jessica and Carla will begin by looking more closely at the cues used to guide students with and how they affect a students experience of the asana. Jessica and Carla will breakdown what is known as “the vinyasa” and explore the many possibilities of cueing the breath and movement. They will then teach how to modify, support and develop strategies that help bring a greater sense of awareness and focus in a vinyasa style practice.
In this weekend session students will learn and practice how to instruct from a sensing/feeling place in stillness and in motion. Also, students will practice refining language options and hands on adjustments as we learn to create a clearer intention in both practice and in teaching. Students will spend time observing themselves and each other through a series of vinyasa sequences that include standing postures, Surya Namaskar A and B and inversions.HIGHLIGHTS
