A step-by-step guide with a word-for-word detailed script on how to safely and effectively teach Ashtanga Yoga to beginner. This manual came into creation as a resource and aid to help Yoga teachers-to-be to find the words to describe some of the techniques and asanas when teaching yoga. It is a modification of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, which deletes or modifies any postures which are not accessible to the average beginner student. This present method has been distilled from many years of observing students practice and the influence certain ways of demonstrating and delivering instructions achieves. You will find that this method will achieve a high level of proficiency and quality in your student’s performance, while adhering to the highest safety standards. With this comes the highest level of benefit for the student. Foreword by Gregor Maehle.
“Out of the blue I’m offered a beautiful space to teach Yoga! There is a certain amount of confidence afforded to me just knowing that I’m a student of Monica Gauci and Gregor Maehle, however, if I hadn’t had my security blanket in the form of Monica’s, ‘Beginners Course Manual for Teachers’, I don’t believe I could have risen to the occasion with the same level of trust and confidence. The manual offers a clear, precise and concise blueprint for Ashtanga beginners. The ‘Beginners Course Manual for Teachers’, has been a gift of support and guidance during this beginning stage of my teaching practice.”
