This 5-day course will evaluate the practice and teaching (pedagogy) of Yoga for advanced practitioners and teachers. It is a deep dive into Yoga intended for who those who are looking to continue a serious inquiry, conversation, and collaboration about teaching and practicing yoga and a consideration of how to make its future evolution most effective.
Edward and Laurie will utilize their new book Teaching Contemporary Yoga (Routledge 2022) to frame and lead discussion and experimentation. They will cultivate independent critical thinking and imaginative solutions to the problems facing Yoga and its practice in the world today. Relevant to any style, orthodoxy, or population, this “incubator” goes beyond instruction in postures or adjustments. It will discuss how good teaching encompasses having sound theories, methods, techniques, and practice. It will promote the ways in which student progress and well as the robust evolution of Yoga as a discipline requires a systematic route to the experience of “enlightenment.” This is a “training for the trainer” and is optimal for those that wish to create exceptional and innovative teacher trainings.June 4 - 5 4 MASTER CLASSES Monterrey, Mexico
