a new yoga

I developed this online course for two reasons. Firstly, to share the at times very different approach I have for yoga and give you an opportunity to explore it. Secondly, I developed this course specifically for those newer to yoga, to help them build an intelligent and safe practice right from the beginning.

It’s not to say this is a beginner’s course, the content is an introduction to a way of approaching yoga that is substantially different from what most people practice. If you have been doing yoga for a while, or maybe have already done a teacher training, I promise this course will challenge your belief systems and offer you a different perspective. This is then a huge opportunity for growth.

For current or future yoga teachers this course is accredited as 25 continuing education hours by Yoga Alliance through their YECP program. All those who work through the content and pass the assessment will get a certificate on completion.

  • We’ll explore learning styles, listening skills, and emotional intelligence.
Module 2 | What is yoga anyway?

Learning outcomes for this module

  • To determine your definition of the word yoga, learn where yoga comes from, its essential history, and the interesting links to Chinese yoga, Qigong and the martial arts.
  • Also, in this chapter, you will get an idea of the basic principles of yoga philosophy, that is, the reasons we practice yoga in the first place.
  • Finally, we will learn how we can apply these principals in both our practice and day-to-day lives to maybe make us happier and healthier people in all ways.
Module 3 | How to practice well

Learning outcomes for this module

  • To be able to have a safe, fun, relaxing and enjoyable yoga practice at home, or when participating in someone else’s classes either in real life or online.
  • This module will cover briefly how to use the body safely and functionally whenever you practise.
  • This module will also teach you how to breathe for the maximum advantage on and off the mat.
Module 4 | The human conditions, the essentials

Learning outcomes for this module

  • To achieve a safer, more energetic and enjoyable practice, we have to learn the basics of human anatomy and physiology. If we don’t have this understanding, we leave ourselves liable for injury and potential physical degeneration.
  • In this module you will gain a functional knowledge of the different main joint complexes of the body.
  • This module will also reinforce the reasons for relaxing more, breathing well, and practising in the way that is outlined throughout this course.
Module 5 | The take-home practice

Learning outcomes for this module

  • Here, you will discover a handful of primary yoga sequences you can take home and make a part of your daily practice.
  • We will cover joint movements, spinal movements and two variations for a cool-down sequence—everything you need to have a well-rounded, short and simple practice. These sequences are designed to prepare the body for more strenuous work, maybe like your regular practice, and to help guide your relaxation at the end.
Module 6 | Putting it all together

Learning outcomes for this module

  • Let’s briefly put all of these ideas together and talk about how we can take the lessons from this course offline and into the real world.
  • In learning how to apply these lessons away from yoga, we can hopefully realise the potential of a healthier, more flexible body, more liveable breath, and some mental tracks to keep us happy and calm into the future.
