Teaching 1-2-1 is a rich and diverse experience that can continuously challenge us to be adaptable and creative. By breaking down poses and understanding what it is that we’re asking a body to do we can gain an awareness of fundamental movement principles and can start to pick out the most essential things for our clients to do. Offering things that keep them as fully engaged both mentally and physically as possible gives our clients a more integrated sense of self (embodiment) in asana which may not be so readily accessed in a class. In a 1-2-1 we have time to explore and experiment and both client and teacher can have a shared journey, gathering information without feeling the overwhelm of being in class where the teacher is trying to meet the needs of many and the student is trying to get it ‘right’ without be able to fully check things out. It’s an Art as opposed to a Science entirely because of the continuous need to experiment whilst using a back drop of skills and understanding of body reading, movement principles and asana.
No experience of 1:2:1 teaching is required to attend. Kate aims to give you more confidence in teaching 1-2-1, to help you understand something of the relational dynamics of working 1-2-1 and to think about the relevance of supervision, and to encourage creative ways of working and using our intuition and felt sense.
Kate Ellis Bowes has been teaching yoga for 17 years and been a teacher trainer at Triyoga for the last 10. Her specialism is in teaching 1-2-1 and she has been running a cpd training in it at Triyoga for the last 7yrs, the first of its kind in the UK.

Her approach to Asana practice is unique and based upon many years of research through teaching 1-2-1.
