In a world that has become over run with popular images of super bendy instagram yogis, how can we learn to better understand how bodies move, different variables involved in stability, mobility and range of motion in the yoga postures that a most commonly taught today. Have you started teaching yoga and realised just how different and complex the human body is!! Then this advanced training is for you.  You will learn how to deconstruct the body for deeper understanding then we will look at how to build a sustainable practice around this knowledge that suits each individual.

  • Discuss functional range of motion vs limited range vs hypermobility

  • Learn how to assess students ROM, assess risk and obstacles in practice.

  • We will debunk the concept of stretching and flexibility and rebuild our teaching in ways that are aligned with integrity in the joints, muscular and fascial systems.

  • Learn to skilfully sequence classes that balance common postural compensations

  • Understand and measure your own range of motion to inform your own personal practice (I know right your personal practice began to slip when you started teaching right?)

  • Create language that promotes personal learning, exploration and skilful choice making.

  • Participants will learn how to create class plans that turn classes into a personal laboratory that are inclusive, invite inquiry and creates a safe place for exploration.

  • Learn how to work with one on one clients in safe, informed ways.
