Teaching the Raw Beginner
Teaching yoga to beginner is some of the most rewarding teaching work there is. When you teach beginners, you have the privilege of introducing people to the practice and principles of yoga, opening a doorway to a lifetime of study and self-inquiry. Teaching beginners also requires clarity, sensitivity and patience.
The purpose of this training is to assist teachers of all levels of experience in discovering effective strategies for helping new students access the power and beauty of yoga. In addition to outlining a sample structure of a beginning series, this program explores fundamental teaching skills that can be applied to any class, regardless of level.
If you want to increase your clarity as a teacher, expand your knowledge and expertise and/or learn creative ways to make the vast subject matter of yoga accessible and fun for new students, this course is for you.
As a result of participating in this training participants will be able to:
- Have a six-session outline of a Beginning Yoga Course template
- Create a beginning yoga course that is appropriate to your unique teaching circumstance.
- Introduce an Invocation or opening chant to brand new students effectively and inspiringly
- Understand the difference between teaching and leading class
- Modify common postures into component parts to make them accessible to students with physical or experiential limitations
- Feel more confident as a beginning yoga teacher
- The 6-session Beginning Yoga Series that Christina Sell teaches online will provide a structure and outline for the course. Using this course as a template, we will discuss the program and explore ways these classes can be adapted, changed and modified according to the unique teaching circumstances of the participants.
- 8 recorded training sessions with Christina Sell.
- Each session is recorded and there are no live calls.

You should have experience teaching or be a graduate of a 200-hour TT course. This training is not an introductory TT and can not replace that foundational work. Teachers of all levels can expect to find meaningful insight and practical tools to clarify and improve their teaching.
