the art of sequencing

The iHeartYoga sequence is well rounded, intelligent , safe and creative. It provides a strong foundation for teachers to develop the skills required to create inspired, artfully crafted personalized yoga sequences. Through the lens of the iHeartYoga sequence as a blue print teachers will understand the importance of seamless transitions, layering foundational postures that lead to body awareness and preparation for more advanced layers of posture. The sequence emphasizes a balance of strength and flexibility with freedom and structure. Together we explore crafting classes that deliver anatomically focused themes with variations and offerings for students of all levels of practice. You will be given the tools to navigate through injury prevention and recovery. Learn to incorporate props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, and straps for both the progression and regression of postures to support students in a fully integrated and successful understanding of their bodies and postures.

hands on assists

Touch and connection are basic human needs, they are healing, empowering and transformational when delivered with intention and clarity. You will learn how to assist your students from a place of purpose through alignment and appropriate depth. Intentional touch encourages and empowers the student to understand the “WHY and HOW” of the posture. We teach key concepts such as energy lines and sensation based anatomy language. You will observe bodies and make decisions based on what you see in the present moment with each body. We will explore assists that are universally known and also learn how to assist from a more personalized and informed perspective that is unique to each individual student.

practice teaching

The opportunity to practice teach and refine your skills is not often focused on in every training. We believe that you need time to foster your skills and confidence in teaching your sequences and providing hands on assists. You will have plenty of opportunity to receive feedback from both your teachers and fellow trainees. We deliver feedback from a place of love, encouragement and a deep belief in your potential. We want you to leave knowing you won’t have all the answers and it is always safe to ask for clarity....this is how we grow!!!

mind +Body + spirit

We will explore the foundation of yoga known as the 8 Limb Path, this is the blueprint for living a yogic life and goes far beyond practicing physical postures. It integrates personal boundaries, moral behavior, mediation, discipline, breath work, curiosity and devotion. You will be prepared to support your students with deeply, meaningful and tangible intentions and themes that support both yogic philosophy and daily world experiences. These tools increase, mental health, fortitude, personal awareness, communication and support the well being of relationship to self and others. What you can offer your students through the iHeartYoga curriculum takes yoga off the mat and in to everyday life.
