How does it work?

Students can enroll at anytime before Module 3 with the commitment to make up the first two missed modules. These unattended modules will be offered as a three day intensive at a later date. This intensive may be held once or twice in smaller groups depending on the demand. It’s flexible.

During the course of the training you are required to attend the “All Levels Flow” and “Intermediate Flow” classes that are set up in a series format. Most classes will be taught by Maggie with occasional subs. You may also attend the Hatha/Qigong series to receive additional hours.

Each of the two series is one day a week for four weeks. You will need to complete six rounds of each series to fulfill your requirement of 48 classes. These two series run simultaneously off (when TT module is underway) and on throughout the training (Example: All Levels Flow on Monday, Intermediate Flow on Thursday, both at 5:45pm-7:00)  You could take one, or two series a week-allowing you to fulfill your class attendance requirement at your own pace.

Prerequisites for Enrollment:

Completion of one of the following 4 class series:

  • All Levels Flow

  • Intermediate Flow

  • Hatha/QiGong Flow

Course Requirements:

  • Completion of all 12 Modules.

    • Monday Workshop 5:45-7:30
    • Thursday Workshop 5:45-7:00

The exceptions to this are the Restorative and Anatomy Modules.

    • Monday Workshop 5:45-7:30
    • Thursday Workshop 5:45-7:00

May 5th

Through dynamic and skillful asana practice, with work in the essential postures, you will learn the three tenets of Vinyasa yoga: Arising, Abiding, Dissolving. You will begin to discover how to practice and teach this in every posture, transition and breath. We well explore how to teach the transitions as postures within themselves, opening up to each and every moment until the final rest of savasana. You will learn the basic template of a Vinyasa/Hatha class which you can rely on to build creative and effective sequences.

    • Thursday Workshop 5:45-7:00

June 16th

Here we begin the practice of standing on one leg in the eka padha (one-legged) postures as well as basic arm balances and intro to inversions. There are key elements in the balancing postures that if taught correctly will make standing on one leg, or two hands, stable and joyful. Key to this is the study of basic anatomy and transitions between the postures.

We are multi-faceted beings.  Just as your body has a physical anatomy, it also has an energy anatomy.  In this module you will be introduced to the biomechanics and functions of your energy body. You will be able to identify the major chakras, learn the corresponding mantra, color and function.  You will learn how the chakras, elements (tattwas) and Five Vayus (winds) interact and create health and vitality in our system.

  • Two Day Module PLUS Two Applied Anatomy Labs

  • Anatomy Lab July 11th and July 18th

Our first anatomy module is a  safe and appropriate  introduction to the biomechanics of movement and the teaching of asana.  By looking at the student as a whole being, you will recognize  common movement and postural patterns in asana.  You will learn alternative cuing strategies allowing for greater range of motion while creating maximum stability of joints.   You will learn why some common yoga cues you hear in class are not appropriate for many people by understanding the biomechanics of movement as they relate to asana. We do all of this by the incorporation of video, audio, textbook study guides and physical practice of asana.

You will gain insight through study of basic anatomy and how it differs from student to student..We will begin with a practice to ignite our hearts, open our senses, and become more sensitive with  adjustments. We will explore alignment and how to spot and correct when it goes astray.

We will discuss how to let our students feel seen and supported. We will also learn when verbal adjustments are appropriate and how to invite our students into better listening. Through group work we will explore how to see, place, and support safe alignment in our student's asana practice.
