Props for Targeted Practice – Ge your students connected
Teacher Training CPD – One Day Course
Saturday February 15th
9am – 5pm
Small props for big benefits – this training is suitable for all yoga teachers seeking to incorporate props in their classes in a wide range of applications. Utilising resistance bands and belts, blocks and bricks, chairs, small balls and blankets, this course will examine a wide range of possible uses.
Using these versatile props appropriately enable a yoga teacher to bring the full experience of a deep and challenging class to a broader range of students. From athletes with excessively stiff and tight muscles, to seniors with issues around balance and strength, and from beginners with limited flexibility to advanced students seeking that extra challenge.
Yoga teachers can take advantage of these props in order to help their clients develop and enhance proprioception, motor control, strength, balance, flexibility, stability, mobility and relaxation. We will examine a number of issues and applications with each kind of prop and look at a number of different use cases. Students will learn how to safely sequence small props into their classes and into students’ own personal practice.
