It is very impotant in order to teach/share with others. We teach students what makes them unique. It is the start of a process guiding them to their 'authentic self' and becoming an 'authentic teacher. Opening a class Students will get a chance to practice standing in front of the class and presenting themselves and their (imaginary) class. students will get a feel of how it is to have many eyes staring at you, how to get rid of nervousness or insecurity, what to do when you have a 'black out' or mind does not work , managing expectations of other people, care for injuries, etc. Also students will learn and practice to introduce a class and by that setting a tone for the hour to come.

Students will first practice in small and after in bigger groups. later in front of the whole group Principles of Observation A very important quality of a teacher is to properly observe students during a class. Usually (especially beginning teacher) is much with him/herself, the sequence, their own demonstration and verbal cuing, that they forget about the others. Students will learn what are the most important principles while observing a student,. We could think of how to students enter the class, how do they present themselves (body language), do they ask questions. how to check alignment etc. Observation and the balance between observation, demonstrating, verbal instruction, adjusting etc. will be specially taught. Students first practice in small and after in bigger groups. later in front of the full class or group. Principles of Verbal Instruction Very important for teaching a class. Speaking in front of a group is not natural for everybody and thus we will practice much with simply standing in front of a group and we will be doing many practices for 'opening' the voice and finding your authentic way or original or natural way. Students will learn principles of verbal instruction, such as length of sentences, rhythm, information load, humour, etc. the balance between verbal instruction, observation, demonstrating, and adjusting will get lots of attention. Students first practice in small and later in bigger groups or in front of the whole group Principles of Adjusting Especially in a Yogasana class hand-on adjustments are an essential skill of a Yoga teacher. Students will learn principles of adjusting, such as when or when not to adjust, safety for the student, safety for the teacher, overall alignment in every pose with their adjustments, use of props, etc. Adjustments and the balance between adjustments, observation, demonstrating, and verbal instruction receives much attention. Adjustment for each asana category will get special attention. Students will first practice in small and after in bigger groups. later in front of the whole group Using your voice Voice training and how to adjust your voice to create a certain atmosphere in the class. our voices are constricted due to emotional problems. we will work on releasing emotions through the practice of asana, pranayama and meditation. particular practices are introduced to work more specifically on the voice and to become more conscious how to use it for certain pedagogical ends Students will practice with this in small groups and will demonstrate what they have learned and practiced in front of the full class The art of sequencing The sequence of a class is very important and depend on many factors, such as time of the day, age of the students, experience of the students, theme of the class, etc. Principles of sequencing are being taught and also different schools of Yoga with their own specific sequences are being presented and explained in detail. Through the actual practice students get a feel for sequencing and also they have to build a number of classes themselves The business side of Yoga Students will know different business modules of how to go about teaching Yoga as a professional.

Divya is a great teacher who creates a safe and peaceful environment whilst sharing his skill and knowledge. The small class size allows him to give some attention to everyone so that he can encourage you to improve at your own pace. He made me feel more confident and fluent in giving yoga instructions. Training was well organised for morning pranayam practice on the beach and practice in outdoor studio. You can be sure Divya focus on you and give you proper guidance to become confident yoga teacher. Full Review

Yoga with Divya has been a nice intensive training. The morning routine includes about 6 type of meditations, 8 Pranayam and two hours of Hatha yoga, during which we were practicing about 50 poses. In the afternoon we had the opportunity to learn interesting and fundamental information about Ayurveda and Yoga Philosophy; when we had time we were also practicing Ashtanga, even if less than expected. If you have the opportunity to stay longer than a month, you can focus more on it with the teacher. We learned few new meditations, pranayam and asanas but we didn't have time to practice. The course is great and quite complete, Divya is flexible with topics/days/timing therefor if for once you want to focus on a different or more specific subject, he will help you. I am happy because I learned how to speak in front of a class and most important to give clear explications. We had the opportunity to teach full classes and to correct the students, that is a really precious experience. Full Review
