In addition to the five 3 day intensive sessions outlined in the Programme, Weekly and Practice Requirements must be met.
Trainees are required to attend two General level classes a week, one pranayama class, Monthly Intensives . It is a requirement of the Programme that trainees record via stick figures each class that they attend.
Trainees will be expected to read material that will be delivered electronically between the weekend sessions. During the three year training period trainees should not attend classes with other teachers
Trainees are required to develop a personal yoga practice It is expected that the trainee will set aside 1.5 hours a day, 6 days a week to practice. A home practice informs, guides and inspires one's teaching. In yoga one learns from oneself, one teaches oneself.
The Programme will address issues around how to practice :
- How to teach the pose to the body,to the breath and to the mind
- How to shift ones practice from being mechanical to being a reflective practice
- How to sequence a practice, to have an affect in the body, in the breath, in the senses and in the mind.
- Practice logs are expected to be filled in each day and then submitted to Chris one week prior to the training sessions.
