Learning about alignment and the therapeutic aspects of yoga
The program is a unique blend of modern-day science and classic yoga, Inspired by Iyengar yoga and physiotherapy and various kinds of yoga therapy. Luna Alignment Yoga believes that the yoga practice should always be adjusted to fit the student’s needs, even when teaching a large group. Therefore, the aim is to teach you - whether you are an aspiring yoga teacher or a yoga teacher already - the important core principles behind body structure, alignment and therapeutic yoga, so that you can integrate this knowledge later on in your self-practice and teaching.
You will be able to re/invent your yoga practice and teaching with a new extensive toolbox of yoga methods, approaches, and techniques, along with the ability to evaluate individual needs and adapt the yoga practice accordingly, enabling you to create intelligent, health promoting, injury free, and adapted yoga environment.
The program is designed in the most approachable way, teaching every topic in both theoretical and practical manners. Every subject you learn will start with the theoretical class, followed by the related practice. Since this course is designed for aspirant teachers, Luna Alignment Yoga trains you to actually teach and therefore you will start the teaching practices already from week two. The course addresses people from all levels and enables everyone to move at their own pace within the given frame of the program. The aim is to reach all different ranges of population - whether you are already teaching yoga, an experienced practitioner or in the beginning of your journey into the world of yoga.
