Seasonal Yoga Online Training – Teach in Harmony with Nature
Learning with Seasonal Yoga makes Perfect Sense
At Seasonal Yoga we Teach in Harmony with Nature and the Season around us by changing our teaching content to match the Season we are in. We use this to resonate with our surroundings and to come back to balance. It’s therefore important that you study the material in-Season or just slightly before the Season begins. You should also be aware of how Nature around you changes. If March comes around, but there’s still snow on the ground, then stay with the Winter Season Teachings. If the leaves on the trees start to change colour mid July then consider moving into Late Summer. The more attention you bring to the natural flow of Nature and Life around you the more your instincts will naturally tell you when it’s time to change.
We’re also firm believers that Summer is a good time for high-energy classes but Winter’s a time for a more restorative, contemplative practice. It just makes sense to follow Nature around you as it sleeps and recovers, preparing for the start of a new Spring to push forth new growth, that we should too.
Our Guided Courses are taught by Julie Hanson and Sue Woodd
The learn how to teach in harmony with nature our teaching offers practice and teaching points in the many varied aspects of Seasonal Yoga. Our courses include topics that cover Seasonal Yoga flows, Yoga Nidra specific to each Season and practical yoga class teaching skill. Aspects of Seasonal food relevant to each time of year and advice on lifestyle choices and their practical application are also presented. And not to forget, there’s also extensive guides that will help you with your self practice. We release each Season’s content ahead of time to let you prepare in time for the beginning of the new Season. Meaning you can start to bring this in to your classes as soon as the Season begins and learn while you teach it.
Our two co-founders, Julie and Sue, have over 50 Years teaching experience between them and approach Seasonal Yoga from two perspectives. Sue comes with a deep background in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) while Julie has a lifetime background in Flow Yoga and Chi Ball. Putting these East and West aspects together brings Seasonal Yoga to life and captures the benefits and harmony of both together.
This course is designed to enhance your existing qualification as there is reference to yoga terms, anatomy and physiology and teachings at a professional level.
