Location: The Costessey Centre

Type of Event: Open Day

THE PRACTICE AND TEACHING METHODS OF
THE THREE MAIN BANDHAS, MAHA BANDHA & BASIC HASTA MUDRAS

Many teachers feel that they did not study the bandhas in depth on their training courses and do not feel confident enough to teach them. This will be an opportunity to go into the subject in more detail, using yoga postures in some cases, to help sense and locate the area of contraction. These are my aims for the In-service Training Day.

EVENT AIMS:

1.  To assist and encourage teachers to practice and teach the 
     three main bandhas including ashwini mudra and vajroli mudra and looking
     into the anatomy of the pelvic floor in relation to these practices.

2.  To give confidence to participants to teach bandhas to their students
     safely.

3.  To ensure that they do understand the benefits and precautions of the practices.

4.  To increase the participant’s knowledge of the theory behind practising
     the bandhas.

5.  To encourage participants to further their study of the bandhas. (i.e. practice and
     reading)

 
LEARNING OUTCOMES:

1.  Participants should be more confident in practising and teaching bandhas.

2.  They will be able to introduce bandhas in their classes, having learned
     some new and simple techniques to teach these practices to their students in a   
     digestible manner.

3.  They should be able to demonstrate Jalandhara and Uddiyana Bandha and 
     be able to explain clearly the method of practising Moolabandha and the
     difference between this practice and Vajroli Mudra and Ashwini Mudra.

4.  Teachers running intermediate classes will be able to teach Maha Bandha
     and Agnisari dhauti and fully understand the benefits and precautions.

5.  Teachers will know when, how and if, they should introduce bandhas in their 
     classes and why some students should avoid them.  Handouts will be given 
     on each bandha, including contra-indications.


As I see it, the main purpose of an In-Service Training Day is to give teachers new ideas with tried and tested methods of teaching that they can take home and practice safely and confidently, and then pass on to their own students.



TEACHING HATHA YOGA SEQUENCES AND WORKING SAFELY TOWARDS CLASSICAL ASANAS:

My three practice manuals will be used to present this part of the I.S.T. day.
 

EVENT AIMS:

1.  To introduce teachers to some new hatha yoga sequences which they
     can use when teaching their classes.
 
2.  To assist participants in introducing safe methods of preparing their
     student’s bodies for classical asanas with relevant joint mobilisation and muscle     
     stretches.

3.  To ensure that they understand the importance of ‘working towards’
     ‘classical’ or ‘more extreme’ static asanas.

4.  The help participants understand the benefits and precautions of practising
     sequences.

5.   To help participants experience the joy of practising some flowing sequences
       to music which they can teach to their students.

 
LEARNING OUTCOMES:

1.  Participants will have learned some new sequences to teach to students who
     may find Sun Salutations difficult.

2.  They will, have learned to help their students to modify postures, or sequences 
     where necessary.
   
3.  They will have learned to teach their students how to put a yoga session together
     for their own personal practice.

4.  They will have learned how to ‘work towards’  classical static asanas safely using a 
     series of limbering exercises, stretches and sequences of anti-rheumatic, anti-gastric
     and energy block release exercises and more, in order to avoid physical strains etc.
