As seasoned yoga practitioners, we often forget fundamental aspects of yoga. Many seasoned students have mentioned this module has made them aware of habits they had adopted that were not healthy for their bodies. It is also a learning experience to see those who are new to yoga experience it for the first time. This module will teach you how to work with and modify for beginning yoga students. You will receive handouts from our successful beginning yoga series which is carefully planned so that each lesson builds appropriately for a holistic approach to yoga, including sections covering anatomy, philosophy, and meditation for the beginner. At the end of the module you will teach the series to friends and/or family to experience the challenges and rewards of teaching the beginning yoga student.
