Course prerequisites

  • An open mind and a sense of curiosity. You will be introduced to some principles that are totally new to you and others that you might have come across before. Now is the time to refine these.
  • Knowing and not minding that this is no normal ‘asanas in the morning and a chat in the afternoon’ training. The asana session will be totally directed towards understanding why it is that you can achieve so much more simply by applying models of NLP.

Aims of the Day – Day 1

  • To enable teachers to use appropriate language as effectively as possible.

  • To practice exercises to clarify the use of language patterns – visual, kinaesthetic and auditory
  • To practice the principle of modelling excellence during asana performance
  • To refine the principles behind the NLP relaxation model and how to effectively teach meditation to a mixed group including techniques to help students to easily reach the right meditative state.
  • To practice meditation techniques taking into account kinaesthetic, visual and auditory requirements.

Objectives of the day – Day 2

Teachers will:

  • Be confident about improving and applying principles of earlier learning to their teaching.
  • Be able to change their own state to avoid exhaustion and burn-out and to help their students change state.
  • Learn a highly sophisticated problem solving model.
  • Continue to realise how important it is to recognise that the mix of highly visual, auditory and kinaesthetic people in their classes, and be able to adjust their language patterns accordingly
  • Be able to help students lose limiting beliefs about what is possible to get the most out of their practice.
  • Be able to motivate their students to have success both in postures and mental practices by using the power of the unconscious mind.
  • Be confident in being creative and making the relaxation model their own.
  • Fully understand why meditation preparations are so important for students and why they work so well.
