Put your yoga teaching under the microscope with YogaLab

Are you a yoga teacher looking for fresh new ideas to invigorate your classes? At Yoga Lab, we’ll help you to supercharge your classes and bring them to the next level.

This year we’re running a series of eight day-long workshops specifically for yoga teachers.

Join senior yoga instructor, Paula Mitten for a set of unique post-graduate training courses for yoga teachers in 2017. These workshops are designed to give yoga instructors the space to experiment and develop their own practice, while placing different elements of yoga teaching under the microscope.

Workshops can be booked individually or as a course.

Each YogaLab class is accredited with the Yoga Alliance and counts as three CDP hours.

YogaLab costs: €49 per half-day workshop, €140 for three workshops, €275 for six workshops. To block book contact info@durga.ie. Book individual workshops below.



31st March: Class planning and sequencing for vinyasa flow

Dynamic yoga classes need great chemistry. Learn how to plan intelligent vinyasa flow classes that seam postures together in a logical way. From warming up to peak postures, learn which poses flow together and how to insert counter poses that benefit your students’ bodies and minds.

28th April: The art of assisting

Assisting and adjusting helps your students to go deeper in their physical practice, supporting them to have better alignment and structural stability. But it can be daunting to get off the mat and to start assisting or to try out new assists. This class will give you the space to learn, refresh and practice a wide range of safe assists, building your confidence and practical knowledge.

26th May: Advanced assisting

Every teacher reaches a point where they feel very confident to assist the basic poses but dream of practicing and learning new assists. This class will delve deeper than the average trikonasana and look at a range of new and exciting assists that will allow you to stand out from the yoga teaching crowd.
