Observing a Class

You must give three public classes assisted by a mate-teacher who will have a Comment Sheet to be filled in and give you feed-back.
Be assertive: Check how was his/her teaching and share it, remembering to be positive in your general vision, giving details to help him/her grow.
See the big picture and remember basics: For example, when the student is doing Trikonasana, check if he/she is open and expansive, and from there you can see if the bases are too short or other details, you can see if the feeling is stable or if it is too free.

TEACHER: attention, presence and cordiality.
Presence of the teacher
: his/her way of being before the student and the trust in his/her presentation of clear and easy instructions.
Yes no yes: when you give feed-back the methodology must be to support the student.

Yoga Alliance Presentation

About Yoga Alliance: the mission of Yoga Alliance is to spread the power of yoga. Their credentialing organisation promotes ideals of safe and competent yoga teaching. Yoga Alliance developed a registry to recognise yoga teachers and schools whose training met the designed standards. A student can trust that a Registered Yoga Teacher and Yoga School has a certain level of education and experience.

Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT 200, RYT 500, E-RYT 200, E-RYT 500) who register with Yoga Alliance are listed in the online directory. Yoga teachers that graduated from Registered Yoga Schools can receive varying levels of designation based on the amount of training and teaching experience they have.

Registered Yoga Schools (RYS 200, RYS 300, RYS 500) that register with Yoga Alliance are listed in the online directory. Registration acknowledges that the yoga teacher training program meets standards developed by Yoga Alliance and that training is conducted by experienced instructors. Once a school is registered, all graduates of a RYS are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance.
