No matter how much you loved your Teacher Training, chances are that you were practising your teaching skills on your fellow trainees, all of whom already had great ability. Then, after you graduate, you’re faced with your first group of beginners in a real class scenario, and you realise that teaching beginners can be hugely challenging. This in-depth workshop is designed to give you lots of ideas and inspiration for ways to help your beginner students, no matter what their age, body type or level of ability. You’ll learn new and interesting ways to modify everything from Downward Dog and Chaturanga to those tricky half lotus poses, backbends and more. You’ll leave the workshop with a whole new repertoire of ways to work with the poses to help your students build confidence and ability from your teaching. This is a great refresher workshop for YTT graduates.

ESTABLISHING A SELF-PRACTICE WORKSHOP
Being able to roll out the mat at home and move through a yoga sequence with complete confidence is a beautiful tool for life. It helps you integrate a yoga practice into your life and makes it accessible to you anytime, anywhere. In this 3-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to work with the Ashtanga sequence in a way that suits your body, your stage of life and the time you have available. You’ll also learn tips and techniques to help you find the discipline to practise at home. All levels are welcome, including beginners.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY:
“I signed up to Exploring Yoga’ as a relative newcomer to yoga, with the hope of deepening my understanding of the practice (on both a philosophical and physical level). I got all that and more from the course: Ríonach is an incredibly experienced and intuitive teacher, who expertly managed a group with significantly different levels of experience. I found the course enriching and motivating, and it has helped me in developing a more regular and consistent yoga practice, that goes beyond merely practising the asanas. I feel that this course is just the start of my yoga journey and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about yoga, but is perhaps not ready to embark on the full 200-hour yoga teacher training, as well as those who maybe have more experience, such as yoga teachers or regular practitioners, who want the space to revisit or further explore certain aspects of the practice.” Molly Joyce, Exploring Yoga student, January – July 2021
