Personal practice and teaching methodology

There are two paths that aspires to be a teacher find themselves on:

The path of the practitioner and the path that leads to becoming a teacher.

These two paths walk together and evolve with the growth, spiritual, psychic and corporeal of the person . 

A practitioner may not wish to become a teacher, and may prefer to experience the practice as their own personal pursuit and growth.

A teacher, on the other hand, should never forget that he is a practitioner, a student.

Becoming a teacher does not mean giving up being a student, but it is precisely in humility, as well as in preparation, that the depth and effectiveness of teaching is measured.

At this point of the journey, we continue to develop awareness and growth in the personal practice of each student, to learn to live their own practice with serenity and recognize that of others.

In addition to growing in skills regarding the structure of Ashtanga Yoga, to growing in knowledge of a broader vision of Yoga, we try to stimulate growth to feel capable of using the tools that a teacher can use to lead a lesson:

-The voice, to guide the lesson and give the different instructions

-The bodily presence, to know how to be and stay inside the shala in a way that students feel the presence of the teacher, drawing safety, benefit, and appropriate indications

-The touch, through the development of ever greater security in adjustments.

Two key concepts:

- practice (abhyāsa) and renunciation (vairāgya).
