Ashtanga is a wonderful practice that gives students the opportunity to become familiar with a set sequence overtime. Here, you will learn my approach- one that is firmly rooted in therapeutics and making the practice accessible for all. We will take a deep dive into how things work, the benefits and limitations, how to identify dangerous movement patterns, how to re/progress postures and how to lead in a way where you are understood and enabling people to fall in love with the practice and their capabilities.

PROGRAM DETAILS | April 22-May 4 including the 10-day challenge, self-study suited to your own schedule and two 5-hr weekend days.

*As this is rooted in the Kaizen Yoga approach using the Ashtanga Vinyasa standing postures, this program will only be open to students that have taken at least 2) 10-day challenges with Mindy.

The 40hr program is organized as follows |

10 hours | Lecture

Sunday, April 28 | 10am-3pm (no asana after lecture, students may eat snacks during part II)
-2 hrs |Feedback Best Practices
-3hrs | sequence dissection; individual pose breakdown

Saturday, May 4 | 1130am-530pm (one hour for lunch)
-2hrs | Intro to AcroYoga Workshop
-3hrs | hands-on adjustments

10 hours | asana practice

In this program, you will work side-by-side with non-ttc track students. But having the experience yourself, not just knowing the poses, literally feeling them- you begin to bond with your student. When you say to them, “I understand how you feel,” it’s a statement of fact, not a filler for the conversation.

10 hours | Observation

In addition to attending class as a student, you will spend time learning how to read movements and body language to facilitate learning. This will be conducted by viewing classes conducted online in a time that works for you.

10 hrs | Practice Teaching, Self Assessment and Feedback, Self- Study

The only way to do it is to do it! Regarding teaching practice, you decide what format is best to practice putting this sequence into action. You may decide to organize a small class. You may want to lead a student 1:1. I want to make sure you are in a space where you are comfortable putting your tools to work.

-5hrs | Demo Teaching.

-5hrs | You will record each sessions (for private viewing.) You will review each session, give yourself your own feedback and as request specific feedback from me. This time frame also covers time memorizing the sequence.



I am so excited to work on this program with you. This program will give your passion and knowledge some legs and really take you into usable, accessible spaces.
