What you can expect each day of the training
Each morning is dedicated to your practice. We will begin with 30-1hr minutes of guided seated meditation followed by pranayama to help you settle in and bear witness to whatever is present for you. The seated practice is followed by a complete, intelligently sequenced vinyasa practice that will allow you to experience your physical edge and grow as a practitioner. You’ll simultaneously deepen your practice by working on advanced postures and their modifications, and learn how to teach and develop your voice by assisting and adjusting your peers. You’ll learn to work with your own body in a more skillful, effective, and efficient way in order to build depth in your practice for years to come.
Each afternoon is dedicated to becoming a more knowledgeable, confident, and insightful teacher. You will work on every aspect of teaching, from learning greater depth in anatomy, injury prevention, and intelligent sequencing for each region of the body to using purposeful, impactful language when you provide instructions. You will also generate sequences and teach segments of classes to receive Neda’s direct feedback and guidance.
