Skilful Teaching - A Balancing Act

60 hour Vinyasa Training for Teachers

Clara Roberts-Oss & Nico Luce join forces once again to provide a one-of-a-kind yoga teacher training experience. Known for creating playful sequences that are integrated and well-balanced, they combine over 25 years of studies and teaching experience. Together they bring extensive knowledge in the field of asana through various lineages as well as philosophy, mantra, pranayama and meditation.

This Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed for current yoga teachers and recent graduates of a 200-hour TT seeking to deepen their understanding of Vinyasa Yoga, honing their teaching techniques and taking their offerings to a higher level. Building upon what you’ve learned thus far, Nico and Clara will help refine your teaching with feedback on cuing, sequencing and Bhavana (mood). They will go deeper into the biomechanics of poses and transitions helping you to cultivate a well rounded class with inspirational themes and clear instruction.

What will be covered here:

Vinyasa Asana Lab: Vinyasa oga is about ombining ntelligent sequencing with creative ransition, lui acing and recise iming. We will explore ll these aspects from different vinyasa lineages includin classical Ashtang, ower Vinyasa, ivamukti, Anusara, Prana Flow and Forest Yoga. We will also elve nto eneral lass structure; going over vinyasa krama (stages) so every student feels empowered to trust and listen to their bodies, reating a container for students to feel safe to explore emotions that may arise and ow to conduct lasses that are both fiery and cooling.

Anatomy of the Injured Yogi: As teachers we encounter many students who either come to lass with injuries or et injured in class. We will go over the anatomy of hips and shoulder, common injuries such as neck, rotator cuff, lower bac, knee, wrists and ankle. Information will be given on the most common ways these oints are injured, modifications or different needs nd ways of helping to rehabilitate.

Philosophy: Journey to India. We will present and discuss Hindu mythology in general and then focus on different characters and deities to extract from their stories powerful spiritual teachings. These isdom filled legends are worth examining hem today nd ontemplate their deeper meanings.

Subtle Body: Daily meditation, mantra and pranayama will be given at the start of each day along with discussion and practical application of these more subtle teachings.

Demo class + feedback: Each teacher will ave the option to ead a 30 min class based on the material covered in the program and will receive feedback (if they wish) from both Clara, Nico and the group.

About the presenters:

Clara believes that much of the spiritual practice is about 'lila', cosmic play. When we play, we are open to the unfolding while in process. It is less about the goal and more about the evolution.

Clara has taught for over a decade and has been leading retreats and teacher trainings worldwide for the last 5 years. She draws from many different traditions including Prana Flow, Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Jivamukti, to create strong, integrated holistic classes. Clara has also studied philosophy with Paul Ortega, Lorin Roche and Daniel Odier. or check her out on Gaia

ico Luce has been practicing and teaching yoga since 2003 and has trained in various lineages such as Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anusara, Yin and Pilates. He is also a devoted student of eastern philosophy and spirituality which he weaves into the physical practice to create a profound transformational experience. Bringing meaning to the practice and attention to refined bio-mechanics are at the heart of his teachings. Nico and his family live in Switzerland from where he travels internationally teaching workshops, retreats and Teacher Trainings and regularly produces instructional videos for GAIA.
