The intent of the master class is to experience yoga in a completely new and innovative way. The expectation of the master class is to provide students with a plethora of usable techniques to clearly add value to their current level of teaching. We begin with a brief discussion of the history, philosophy, and methodology of Functional Yoga Instruction ™ with creator and author, Brian Friedman. The first segment is a 30 minute led class with very little or no instruction. This gives students a chance to experience yoga at their current level. The second segment is 45 minutes of demonstrations and corrections. Brian will troubleshoot postures and offer observations and corrections. Students will pair up and work with each other to apply the cutting edge techniques they have just learned. The finale is when the same 30 minute sequence is experienced in a new way with a wealth of brand new techniques, all of which will be absolutely usable in the context of a private session or a led class.
