We offer a successful mentorship program to refine your teaching skills. Our experienced teachers help students understand their own physiology and how to impart this essential wisdom.   Our students evolve into accomplished, confident, and knowledgeable teachers.

I have been practicing yoga since 1974, teaching since 1979. Practiced with BKS Iyengar in India in l977.

I opened the Davenport School of Yoga in l996, began doing teacher training in 2003.    I was a presenter at the Iowa City Yoga Festival and I teach workshops regularly on the west coast of Australia.

PROGRAM

The program mainly follows the methods outlined in “Light on Yoga” by BKS Iyengar and “Yoga for a New Age” by Bob Smith. There will be numerous teacher training publications by John Friend and Ester Meyers. This training program, by exploring your potential will open you to personal growth and transformation.   You will learn more about yourself which will help to become an inspirational teacher. What you already appreciate about yoga will be enhanced.. It is a very important decision you are making in deciding to choose this program.. Our faculty will be teaching yin, therapy, pranayama, partner, kundalini, and philosophy.   We will also do some aerial yoga.

Intro to Aerial Yoga Workshop

Davenport School of Yoga

735 Federal Street

December 17th

1:30 P.M- 3:00 P.M

Aerial Yoga is a combination of traditional poses done on the floor and postures practiced using soft fabric. In aerial yoga, our body weight is distributed between floor and fabric, allowing us to access traditional poses in a new way. When off the floor, there is no pressure on joints and inversions are accessible with no strain on neck or shoulders. Hanging in ‘slings’ makes core muscles ‘fire’. It is so much fun you don’t realize what a great workout you are getting.

This class is designed with the beginner in mind.  We will walk you through the basics, offer instruction and take time to explore the poses while answering questions and making sure you feel safe and supported.

Cost is $25

Reserve a sling
