How to bring these individual poses to life by creating dynamic, intelligent sequences.
Physical anatomy of the body so that you might guide students to deepen a pose, modify due to practice level or injury and know what parts of the body work, and equally important, relax in specific poses;
Meditation, pranayama and room-centering techniques, including Sanskrit chants.
Arm balances & Inversions
Subtle anatomy including the meaning of chakras, bandhas, koshas, nadis, and vayus and how these are influenced by specific asana and pranayama
