Teaching Methodology: 25 hours:
Based on sound educational research & pedagogy, Sheila’s 30 years of teaching experience, and highly qualified teachers at the Ubud Yoga House, students will explore finding their teaching voice, the qualities and skills of a good teacher, how to create a “safe” learning environment, appropriate language for instruction and how to sequence a yoga class for Every Body with the use of hands on adjustments and props.

Anatomy & Physiology: 20 hours:
Students will study anatomy and physiology as it relates to yoga in an interactive fun way with hands on demonstrations making it easy to understand the basic anatomical structures.   Anatomy is studied in the context of yoga and how yoga postures tone the muscles, tissues, ligaments, and  joints and help maintain healthy bones. This knowledge will be applied to optimize yoga practice and avoid injuries. Students will learn the benefits of yoga and its effect on the functioning of various internal systems including respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, excretory, reproductive, and hormonal systems.

Yoga Philosophy: 30 hours:
The history, meaning, purpose, & philosophy of yoga will be studied through readings, films, video clips and lively interactive discussions.  Students will study the basic philosophy of yoga focusing on the primary aim of yoga, which is to join the mind and the body through physical postures and meditation in order to know our inner self. The goal of yoga is harmony between the body, mind and spirit (authentic self). Students will study the 8 limbs of yoga which include the study of morals and ethics, physical yoga postures, breathing and meditation techniques.

Practicum: 10 hours:
Students will begin teaching the basic standing, seated and reclining postures during the first few days with a focus on two or three specific postures each day.
