Each day will include a rigorous examination of asana through the lens of functional anatomy, breath, sequencing principles, adaptation and adjustment. Through this deeper inquiry, one develops the skills to adapt asana practice for a wide-range of populations and to meet the needs of individual students within a group context. YBTT is beneficial for yoga teachers and students who want to intensify their practice and develop a deeper understanding of yoga and themselves. Deep learning is a long, leisurely drink from a deep well of knowledge, rather than quick sips from many different wells.
Deep learning suggests students will follow a stream of inquiry to the headwaters, rather than sampling sips from all directions. Embracing the Role of the Teacher is challenging beyond all expectation, shaking one to the root of body and soul, yet will transform one to become smoother and stronger.
