Are you a Bay Area yoga teacher? If so, come join the MYoga faculty for a FREE mini-workshop on how to skillfully bring sound and chant into your classroom. Yogic sound can be simple, easy and effective — another great tool to have in your yoga teaching arsenal. In this short session we will cover the basics for the classroom, including:
• reasons to use chant/sound in class
• how to bring power to your voice
• how to breath while chanting
• how to chant OM effectively
• how to play the sruti box while you chant
• how to ease your students’ trepidations about chanting
• how to effectively lead a chant
• three simple chants every yoga teacher should know
• using sound in savasana to "drop students in" quickly
In the end, you may or may not decide to incorporate sound into your classes — but if you do, you will have the training to begin doing so skillfully. The material we will be light and fun, and refreshments will be served. A nice chance to learn more about your subject and a rare opportunity to be in community with fellow Bay Area teachers!
You must either be actively teaching, a graduate of a 200hr teacher training program or currently enrolled in teacher training in order to attend.Please RSVP.
