This is where you actually teach asana classes as a group and get personalized feedback on your teaching. You will cover best practices for language, cues, intention setting, and class themes.
In this lecture series we break down every pose in the Modo Yoga sequence. You will gain a deeper understanding of each asana, and explore the anatomy, benefits and, if applicable, it’s origin story in the roots of yoga philosophy.
In this lecture series you will explore how your body moves. You will practice posture variations and modifications with the intention of observing, from experience, how the poses may physically differ and feel from person to person.
