  • The different philosophical lineages, with greater attention to Patajali’s Yoga Sutras
  • How to incorporate the 8 limbs of Ashtanga yoga on and off the mat

4. Teaching methodology

By the end of the training, Nydum will prepare and expect you to teach a 60-minute class to your group. This teaching methodology module will take you step by step through the process of creating a class and will help you to find your own style as a yoga teacher.

  • How to teach from your authentic self

This program is not about memorizing scripts. It’s about understanding the principals of alignment, sequencing, and teaching, so that you feel confident in creating and leading your own original classes.

5. Adjustments

Once you have incorporated the learnings of anatomy, Nydum will use them to improve as adjusters, learning how to touch, where to press, and how to help the students go further in their own practice.
