CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE
for Iyengar Yoga Teachers
We are delighted to offer our community a comprehensive continuing education course starting in October 2006. Our mission is to ensure each participant the continuation of high-quality instruction needed to fill the ever expanding role Iyengar yoga now plays throughout the world.
This course is open to all Iyengar yoga teachers certified Introductory or above. In it we thoroughly cover all the Junior Intermediate syllabi (I-III), including:
Ø Functional Anatomy and Physiology: a working knowledge of general anatomy and physiology is required. In this course joint movement and functionality as well as the internal dynamics of the organic systems are studied in relationship to asana, pranayama and therapeutic applications of Iyengar Yoga;
Ø Fine tuning of teaching abilities necessary for the Junior Intermediate levels;
Ø Integrated practice of all the required asana, their interrelationships with one another and with all previous syllabi;
Ø Development of sequencing abilities in practice and teaching;
Ø Pre- and post-natal applications (required at Junior Intermediate II and above); Observation and correction techniques (hands-on adjustments and therapeutic applications);
Ø How to integrate philosophical principles into a daily class.
All sessions include peer teaching, written homework assignments and practical teaching drills for the asana room. Individualized projects are assigned based on each person's goals. Though this is not a course for assessment specifically, issues surrounding the process at each junior intermediate level are addressed.
