Content Covered

What problems does this course help yoga teachers and students to overcome?

Teachers will be able to let go of feeling like:

  • You don’t know how to help students whose needs are different than yours

  • You don’t know enough about anatomy to really help people

  • You wish you could better understand why students aren’t listening to you or following your cues

  • You can see that some postures aren’t working for some people but you don’t know what else to suggest

  • You can sense that students are often struggling with postures in your class, but you don’t know what to do or say to help them to have a better experience

  • Working with students 1:1 is intimidating

  • There is a “correct way” and an “incorrect way” to do any posture

  • With the “right” alignment, you will be able to prevent all injuries

  • Some students just should never do certain postures in order to be safe

  • Certain yoga postures are “bad” and should never be taught


Students will be able to let go of feeling like:

  • Yoga, or certain postures, just isn’t/aren’t for you (sometimes that's the case, but rarely!)

  • Something is wrong with your body which is why you can’t practice yoga

  • You aren't strong enough for yoga

  • You aren't flexible enough for yoga

  • Pain in yoga is just a given

  • You're not progressing in their postural practice

  • You wish you could be more in touch with how you feel in your body when you're practicing

  • You have a sense that there's got to be an easier way to approach yoga but you don't know where to start


"It is a whole different experience learning the anatomy in a group setting and in a playful exploratory way. The sessions didn't feel so much like I am studying a science but I felt as though I was coming to explore and learn about my body and the people who I got to take the course with. Learning from a lecture, or reading or diagrams truly can't compare to actually learning about the body with your body and other bodies."
