Bodhi Yoga™ Teacher Training Session 3
In Session Three you will learn how to combine yoga poses in a sequence using Bodhi Yoga’s Natural Progression™, progressing from beginning to advanced versions of Asanas (yoga poses). In addition, discover how to safely approach the practice when injured or use yoga to heal injury and physical limitations in the pose.
Realize in a brand new way, the potential for teaching yoga in ways that honor each student
as an individual, as YOU learn to “think outside the mat” Bodhi Yoga Style!
Let’s take it all a little deeper: Please prepare for this session by viewing Session 3 online classes, making notes to bring great questions and discussion to our in-person session. You will get the most out of Session Three by pre-reading pages 5-21 and completing the dosha quiz on pages 22-26 (make sure to check all that apply to you, both across and down) as well as reading pages 29, 40-41 and 45-46 in your manual, along with reviewing your Session 3 laminated Yoga Asana sheet. Review the Bodhi Yoga Natural Progression™ to Asana section on pages 47-83 in your manual (keep in mind that you have the acupressure and marma-point reference in the back of Session Three in your manual as well). Keep a note pad handy, as you work with practicing the hands on adjusting techniques, to review any questions that arise. Enjoy!
