Teaching Methodology: Designing the Experience
November 16-18, 2018
Teachers: Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash
What makes a great yoga teacher? What makes a great class? Learn to develop your voice and to cultivate your existing skills to hold space and to structure a yoga class that creates the complete experience for practitioners who step into your class.
- structuring a yoga class by building postural arcs and valleys.
- developing a teacher/class relationship and teacher/student relationship.
- methods and tools to find personal inspirations and then to share that with the class.
Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash
Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.
