Preksha is a beautiful Sanskrit word that means "seeing, beholding, reflecting." In this advanced module we will explore ways of seeing clearly: Our own practice and lives, and the practices of our students. We will seek out blockages and patterns and look to create clarity and fluidity.

Much of this training will be on gaining skills at seeing your students clearly both physically and in all three planes of motion. And also skillfully seeing the flow of prana, and seeking out and clearing blockages that may be present. With this clarity, both clear cueing and hands-on adjustments can be created for the student. Additionally, you’ll learn to create action plans that will inform and inspire your students to see themselves clearly, with patience and light.

o Assess: See where you and your students have patterns of holding, blockage and avoidance
o Assist: Make hands-on-adjustments & modifications to poses and the practice as a whole
o Activate: Form and inspire clear intentions and practice plans for you and your students

Morning practices will be strong and highly specific.

Afternoons will be labs of assessing and learning new hands-on adjustments, as well as building action plans for releasing habitual patterns.

“Everything is magical when you see it with your heart.”

Upon completion, this week-long Teaching Skills Advanced module qualifies for 50 hours towards Yoga Tree Advanced Certification OR SmartFLOW Advanced certification.
