Are you an instructor looking to teach arm balances and inversions safely or a student who wants to master advanced postures? Take your practice to the next level with Jason Crandell's Ultimate Guide to Practicing & Teaching Arm Balances + Inversions. This comprehensive course is for teachers and students alike!
In this course, Jason breaks down the components of each pose and group poses together making high risk inversions and arm balances safe and accessible. He includes step-by-step approaches to every pose and outlines how one pose seamlessly flows into the next.
For teachers looking to take a deep dive into arm balances, this course addresses essential anatomy, sequencing concepts, preparatory postures, verbal cues, and manual adjustments for over 35 arm balances in a logical, easy-to-apply method. Jason's philosophy is that not all teachers are able to perform difficult postures but that shouldn't keep them from teaching inversions and arm balances safely.
By demystifying the complexity of these postures, you will take actionable steps to deepen your personal practice and your ability to teach. This course includes postures and inspiration for all levels, regardless of how advanced your practice may be.
This course contains over 150 videos that will systematically enhance your personal practice and give you the ability to learn or teach arm balances and inversions. This comprehensive program includes videos that teach you how to verbally instruct, manually adjust, sequence, and troubleshoot the common challenges of yoga's most valuable arm balances and inversions.
You will also learn the relevant anatomy, proper mechanics, and efficient alignment patterns for each of these postures. The videos in this training go even further by organizing every arm balance and inversion into 8 categories or "families", so that you can understand how each of these postures compliment each other.
Through this comprehensive teacher training you will gain the tools to teach with specificity while encouraging each of your students to find their own way -- eliminating the habits of perfectionism, judgment and shame that can be a part of our Yoga culture -- creating an atmosphere of mindful self–inquiry and exploration.
This course is suited for dedicated yoga practitioners who want to improve their arm balance and inversion practice, as well as for teachers who want to teach these postures to their students.
