Yoga Deconstructed®: Movement Science Principles for Teaching
Online Video Companion
This video companion includes video tutorials of all of the exercises and sequences outlined in chapter 8 of Trina Altman’s book
Yoga Deconstructed®: Movement Science Principles for Teaching.
These professionally filmed and edited videos will teach you a series of techniques and sequences that can be mixed and matched to create unique classes to:
- Help your students develop movement skills and reduce their risk of injury within the scope of yoga, Pilates or any other movement modality.
- Regress and progress yoga asana to better serve students with limitations in mobility, hypermobility, or a history of pain and injury
- Integrate somatics, preparatory exercises, sensory feedback methods, and progressive loading strategies into your yoga classes
About the types of classes you can create using the video companion
The tracks are organized in such a way that you can decide if you would like to emphasize the spine, upper body, or lower body during class. It also allows you to decide if you want to design your class around a peak pose. While the final chapter of the book How to design a Yoga Deconstructed® class and this video companion includes three class templates, there are endless possibilities in which you can innovate and adjust these sequences to expand beyond the templates provided in the book.
How the video companion is organized
Track 1: Variations of constructive rest
Track 2: Sensory feedback methods and somatic sequences
Track 3: Preparatory exercises in supine, prone, and side lying
Track 4: Preparatory exercises in kneeling and seated
Track 5: Preparatory exercises in standing
Track 6: Movement sequences and flows that incorporate more traditional yoga poses
While you do not need to purchase the book to take advantage of the video companion, it is highly recommended that you have the book as a reference to orient yourself to the concepts and sequences that the videos are based upon.
Once you purchase the video companion it is yours to keep forever.
Cumulative length of video footage: 3 HOURS and 48 MINUTES
