MENTORING  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 MENTORING COURSE

- SATI -

 

For Vinyasa Yoga practitioners and teachers looking for tools and inspiration with regards to their self-practice and possibly their teaching.

This is also the perfect online course for those wanting to have a better understanding of the SPACE & FLOW vocabulary and to know the origins of the practice and its teaching method.

SATI will help you deepen your Flow practice, but also give you ideas and tools as to how you can start to create and/or develop further your own movement and Vinyasa vocabulary. 

 

The course is broken down into two parts: SATI I and SATI II.

Each SATI is 12 hours of contact spread over three 4-hour sessions and can be attended indepently (although only in order). 

 

The SATI MENTORING COURSE is open to teachers and non-teachers alike, there’s no need to be an “advanced practitioner” however the ability to appreciate a “question & process” orientated type of practice, as opposed to “results and formula driven”, is a must. 

 

SATI I

consists of a basic breakdown of the practice structure and philosophy of the SPACE & FLOW paradigm and utilises the S&F dynamic warm up as a starting point to discuss practice & teaching goals, vocabulary (both verbal & physical), and individual wants and needs in relation to being a teacher and yoga practitioner. SATI I is only open to 10 participants per course. See breakdown below.

•  

SATI II

consists of two SPACE & FLOW repertoire sequence with two series of Asanas for each to practice, be inspired by, and steal from. Videos with verbal cues for both the FLOW versions (example HERE) and the PAUSE versions will be available for one month after the course. See DATES for specific sequences.

SATI I BREAKDOWN

Session 1

CONTEXT

Movement Vocabulary

‘The rules of language help us understand each other, and ourselves’  

This session will be about the set up, growth, and/or consolidation of a Vinyasa practice which asks more than to ’go with flow’, and with that speaks of the ‘purpose and direction’ of one’s practice. We will explore what can really be asked of ourselves in the context of a Vinyasa sequence, but also what we can realistically expect to receive from a Flow sequence. 

 

Session 2

DIFFERENTIATION 

Movement within the body VS movement within space 

‘All learning comes from Differentiation!’

This session will be about growing the capacity to differentiate 'this from that’ in our practice, so as to help us define and accomplish whatever goals (big or small) we have as yoga practitioners. We will use a sequence from the SPACE & FLOW repertoire and break down what is happening both within the body and within space, and discuss what works and doesn’t, and why. 

 

Session 3

ARTISTRY

 Vinyasa is art, science, but also very much play

“Do not fear mistakes. There are none.” Miles Davis

The artistry session will be about SEQUENCING… What it means, what it takes, and what you can do to make a Vinyasa sequence be Sacred Geometry and/or a dance that can not be wrong as you long as you are willing to be lost in space; the space of you, that is.

 

If you want, and up to two weeks after the course finishes, you will also receive feedback and guidance on the making and refinement of your own Vinyasa sequence. See an example of individual feedback HERE.
