SKILL IN ACTION
60 hr Advanced VinyasaTeacher Training with NICO LUCE
10- 17 April 2021
This Vinyasa Intensive training has been specifically designed for current yoga teachers and recent graduates of a 200-hour TT who want to deepen their knowledge of human anatomy & physiology, understand Vinyasa yoga sequencing & timing, refine teaching techniques and take their offerings to a higher level by incorporating the teachings from yoga’s greatest masterpiece, The Bhagavad Gita.
Building upon everything you’ve learned so far, you’re ready to refine your craft in order to provide your students with life affirming experiences through clear instruction, sound biomechanics, precise action cues, balanced sequences, well-rounded classes, inspiring themes and overall solid teaching.
The three main components of the program are:
- Anatomy of the hips & shoulders
- Vinyasa sequencing & teaching methodology
- Philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita
Every morning after a solid practice, while the body is energised and the mind alert, we’ll study in detail the anatomy of the two main girdles of our body: the hips & the shoulders. Understanding how these parts operate is crucial for the description and the cuing of the form and action in every pose.
After lunch we’ll dedicate half an hour to digest one of the most remarkable spiritual text ever written. “Skill in action” is the definition of Yoga by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. This ancient masterpiece on how to live in this world will be at the center of the philosophical discussions during the training. Every afternoon we’ll deconstruct the text together to extract the main teachings and reflect on how to apply them in our daily lives.
Participants must bring their own copy of the text. Any translation works, Stephen Mitchell’s version is my favourite.
The rest of the afternoon will be dedicated to refining teaching methodology, techniques and decoding vinyasa sequencing. There will be a theoretical presentation of different topics and time to implement them.
Finally, we’ll close off the day with a restorative practice to release the body and put the mid to rest.
Sharpen the tools that you already have and add some more to your belt to become a powerful catalyst for your students’ transformation.
Teaching skills that will be covered:
- Alignment & Action
- Language & Cuing
- Adjustments & Enhancements
- Demoing & Spotting
- Sequencing & Timing
- Theming & Meaning
- Teaching from your Core & Holding Space
A complete training manual in english will be provided covering all the topics presented in class.
For graduates of any 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified training, the full extent of this program can be applied towards Luce Yoga 300 hour certification, and is eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) with Yoga Alliance.
