3 Day CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR TEACHERS
1st - 3rd Nov 2019
This programme is a 3-day Forrest Yoga training that promotes powerful insights providing deeper integration with one's true self. It helps teachers and senior students to become more skilful, passionate, intelligent and authentic – inside and outside the yoga room. Space is created within the programme to explore one’s own emotional, physical and spiritual process, exploring who one is including one’s beauty and shadow side.
Teachers aspiring to improve their teaching and personal practice and students that are ready to move deeper within themselves and increase the mental acuity needed to explore the rich tapestry of Forrest Yoga. A minimum number of years of teaching experience is not required. We expect you to have the willingness, health and strength to commit to 100% of this teacher training.
Taught by Sandra Robinson, one of Ana’s few Forrest Yoga Guardians, over 3-days, the objective of this teacher training is to encourage trainees to develop as individuals as well as to make you a more skilled, intelligent and authentic teacher. Awareness is a vital component when developing the skills necessary to teach from your own found truths. Through daily ceremony, intensives and group instruction, trainees begin to discover the voice of their own Spirit. The intent is to create a safe, accepting and equanimeous space.
Ceremony and Intensives
Each day starts off with a ceremony involving chanting, drumming and intention setting to build a container for the day and create the space for healing and connection to your Spirit, followed by an asana intensive that will create a heightened sense of physical, emotional and spiritual awareness while challenging every muscle and cell in your body. Through a carefully sequenced Forrest Yoga asana practice, Sandra will open you to amazing depths and feelings of awareness. The intensives are a sanctuary where you can feel safe to open up, work through issues that may arise and go beyond your perceived limitations. You will learn about yourself and feel what it is like to have freedom in your own body and mind. The intensives are sure to bring each trainee to new levels within their yoga practice.
The afternoon sessions encompass process work, teaching practices, feedback and instructions on how to become a more authentic teacher. Using skill-building exercises, trainees will work with the essential elements of teaching, such as: class sequencing, learn about personal and professional ethics, effective pose sequencing, the use of safe and effective hands-on adjustments, and effective clear, concise and powerful communication, eliminating habitual phrases, and tone of voice as well as the continued development of a more powerful presence and honesty in your class.
