ThemeWeaving: The Art of Incorporating Themes from the Yoga Tradition into Your Classes

For many yoga students their most memorable classes are those where a skillful teacher incorporates a theme that engages the students’ minds and imagination. Themes can range from the physical (hip opening or back bending, etc.) to the spiritual (forgiveness or acceptance). Themes can be especially powerful when they are taken from the yoga tradition and guide the practitioners to experience, affirm or visualize what the asanas, pranayamas and meditations were originally intended to do.

These programs are for yoga teachers only. There are two ThemeWeaving programs; they can be taken independently in any order.

 Each program includes:
– Presentations on the history and philosophy of yoga
Skillful modeling by program directors of themes covered in program
Practice-teach exercises to develop and hone your skills.
Instruction in using themes in meditations, Pranayama, asana flows and relaxations
