3 Day Teacher Development + Inspiration Program
WHY I CREATED THIS TRAINING
Having trained hundreds of teachers over the course of nearly two decades, the most common challenges that I see teachers struggle with involve sequencing—and, each of these problems eventually leads to burnout. The first challenge is that many teachers haven’t learned to properly sequence in their foundational program. They’ve learned to memorize and teach a sequence, but they haven’t learned how to construct their own sequences in a logical, progressive way. The second challenge is when teachers burn themselves out by constantly creating new sequences from week-to-week, or day-to-day. In this scenario, teachers often stress themselves out by putting pressure on themselves to constantly create new and different combinations—often at the expense of being consistent with their students. The last sequencing struggle that leads to burnout is when teachers don’t completely understand the anatomical foundations for safe, successful, productive sequencing.
I created this program from years of experience to solve all of these challenges—and, to you create authentic, effective, logical sequences that make a positive impact in the lives of your students.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS TRAINING
This program will provide you with the tools to develop meaningful, authentic and effective sequences for your classes and personal practice. It will provide you with the knowledge, inspiration and technique to generate fresh, safe sequences that represent your voice and vision as a teacher. You will learn the anatomical rationale that underscores safe, effective sequencing for every postural category. You’ll minimize burnout and ensure that you have a larger, more consistent student population by avoiding the most common sequencing challenges that teachers face.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT EACH DAY OF THE TRAINING
You will get plenty of practice during this training. Each day starts with seated meditation followed by an accessible, hands-on anatomy discussion that illuminates the sequencing topic of the day. Then, you’ll launch into a strong, 2-hr vinyasa practice that explores the anatomy and sequencing concepts of the day. In the afternoon, you’ll break down the anatomical details further while discussing the sequencing principles for each of the postural categories listed in the paragraph above. Each afternoon will conclude with another, shorter practice that illustrates the sequencing topic of the day.
THE TOPICS COVERED IN THIS PROGRAM
This program covers every aspect of sequencing, including the anatomical rationale that underscores safe and compelling sequences. This program covers the following topics:
DAY 1: Sequencing with Authenticity and Purpose
DAY 2: Turning Inward: Sequencing for Safe, Effective Forward Bends
Creating Space and Freedom: Sequencing for Efficient Backbends
DAY 3: Releasing Tension: Sequencing for Cleansing Twists
Taking Flight: Sequencing for Strong, Stable Arm Balances
