Aadil Palkhivala says that one of our main goals as yoga teachers is to help our students become aware of who they are as distinct from what they have been told they are. Instead of placing them in categories and destroying their uniqueness with labels, we must tell our students what they can do to change, grow, and find themselves. This is especially true for beginners.
In this workshop we’ll look at how to recognize beginning yoga students in your class and how to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere. We’ll also consider the kind of practice and modifications beginning students might need in order to create a positive yoga experience. The workshop will include a brief lecture, small groups practice and discussion.
