Foundation Master Class – Session 1
WHAT YOU WILL COVER IN THIS SESSION
The first session covers Knoff Yoga’s Foundation syllabus. This will cover the pranayama practices of The Yogic Full Breath, Ujjayi Breath, Viloma 1, 2 and 3, and our asana practice will explore Earth and Sun Salutations, Inverted Poses (heating), Standing Poses, Arm Balancings & Forward Bends.
FULL PROGRAM OVERVIEW
These masterclasses are based on the Knoff Yoga Teacher Training syllabus (www.knofyoga.com), with Saturday focusing on the Foundation program and Sunday the Intermediate program.
The workshops are progressive; what you learn in one session will be the basis for the next. Saturday will prepare you for Sunday. If you can only attend one day and have not trained with Nicky Knoff previously, then it would be better to attend on Saturday.
All students will receive extensive notes including:
- 5 Pillars of Practice
- 24 Principles of Practice
- Principles of Sequencing
- Knoff Yoga Intention for Practice
- Knoff Yoga Overview
- Foundation & Intermediate Asana & Pranayama syllabus
Nicky’s teaching emphasis is on showing students how to look, listen and feel by honouring their ‘inner wisdom’.
Her teaching represents a bridge between Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga: intelligent, anatomical alignment combined with linking internal energetic principles.
