Refinement: Preparing to Teach with Tin Ming 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training

23 March-12 May Peninsula Office Tower – Tsim Sha Tsui

Refinement: Preparing to Teach 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training is offered in two 100-hour modules. It is intended for advanced students who wish to deepen their practice and aspiring teachers who are looking for the tools to teach intelligently and confidently. This programme will certify students to teach alignment-focused and philosophically inspired Hatha and Vinyasa classes. This includes the principles of Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative Yoga as well as the therapeutic benefits of yoga asanas and pranayama.

This training is intended for anyone who is ready to move deeper into the practice of yoga or interested in learning how to teach yoga. By substantiating critical skills and knowledge of specific postures, the course materials inspire yoga teachers to find their own voice for giving clearer and more effective verbal instructions. Topics include the history of yoga, yoga philosophy and lifestyle, teaching methodology, sequencing, anatomy, and meditation. The course materials also provide knowledge in using props to design one-on-one private sessions.

Students who attend 100% of both Module I & II will receive a 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training certificate and qualify to register with the Yoga Alliance as a 200-hr RYT.

Module I Syllabus

A. Teaching Methodology
Being a good teacher is not about doing the perfect, most difficult pose. It is about having good energy, being passionate and sharing what you know with others. It is about knowledge and authenticity and being of service.

In this session, you will:

1. Gain practical client assessment skills (including structural and functional assessment, basic Ayurvedic constitution assessment)
2. Learn to sequence individualised yoga practices using a variety of props (belts, blankets, blocks, bolsters, chairs, wall ropes and massage balls)
3. Learn to refine the structure and content of verbal cues
4. Learn to assist and adjust people in asanas

B. Techniques, Training & Practice
Experience the essence of yoga asanas by learning progressive steps using various props – belts, blocks, bolsters, chairs and wall ropes – based on anatomical principles and muscular efforts, reinforcing the connection between mind and body, and using the body as a tool for getting into the present moment.

Each body is different and requires individual effort. There is no one-size-fits-all alignment or pose. By approaching yoga asanas with reference to the Ayurvedic principles, discussions will lead participants to make wise choices about props and modifications and teach them to work hard, stay present and surrender to the process, rather than focusing on the end result.

In this session, you will:
1. Learn to practise asanas using a variety of props (belts, blankets, blocks, bolsters, chairs, wall ropes and massage balls) according to the principles of alignment
2. Discover how yoga and Ayurveda work together to promote the well-being of the body, mind and spirit
3. Deepen your understanding of the breadth of yoga teachings (asanas, meditation, pranayama, diet, yoga philosophy, intuition, lifestyle, and more) and how they can be used to help one’s yoga practice

C. Anatomy & Physiology
A deep understanding of the anatomy and movement principles of the body is an invaluable tool for yoga teachers and serious students. Not only does it help your teaching, it also enriches your own practice. In this practical session, you will experience the below anatomical and kinesiological principles in asana practice:
1. Structure Below the Skin: Bones, Joints and Nerves
2. Muscular Movements Relative to the Force of Gravity
3. Upper Limbs (Neck, Shoulders and Back)
4. Lower Limbs (Hip and Legs)
5. Arms, Wrists and Hands; Ankles and Feet
6. The Diaphragm

3. Demonstrate a greater context for and understanding of yoga in its entirety, beyond the physical approach to asanas
4. Co-create a nurturing environment in which we can deepen our connection to ourselves, family, friends, and each other

1. Learn to practise asanas in various healing modalities in gentle, yin and restorative classes from both classical old-style grounding hatha yoga as well as modern restorative forms
2. Learn to practise asanas in various vinyasa class sequences and more creative expressive vinyasa forms

B. Teaching Methodology
Learn how to accurately see different bodies and identify misalignments and congestion to safely assist students in removing dysfunction that causes pain and unnecessary discomfort. Through discussion and practice, student-teachers will learn how to safely and intelligently sequence yoga classes.

In this session, you will:
1. Learn to refine the structure and content of verbal cues according to different styles of practices
2. Learn to assist and adjust people in asanas

C. Yoga Philosophy & Psychology, Lifestyle & Ethics for Yoga Teachers

4. Know how yoga and Ayurveda work together to promote the well-being of the body, mind and spirit
