As a teacher, the depth of your knowledge is key to unlocking your students' potential and guiding them down the right path.
At Teaching 26+2 you will learn anatomy, body mechanics, physiology and history that illuminate the therapeutic purpose of individual postures and the overall arc of the 26+2 sequence.
You will also learn teaching techniques including how to use your breath, how to use your voice and word choice, how to read a student's posture and how to give corrections & adjustments.
We will examine in detail each posture and breathing exercise of the 26+2 (Bikram's Beginning Class), including skeletal alignment, muscular engagement, weight distribution and use of the breath.
We will discuss the purpose of each posture and how to maintain its benefits even while up-leveling or down-leveling to suit your students' needs. Avoid common pitfalls by learning the most likely injuries in each position and how to identify and prevent them.
In addition, it is of vital importance that we understand how to use other teaching tools like our voice, body and hands.
At Teaching 26+2 we will teach you how to use your voice effectively (even if you have a quiet voice), how to give instructions that communicate effectively with your students, when and how to demonstrate, how to make corrections verbally, and how to assist your students by adjusting their bodies.
