This CPD course for yoga teachers and trainee teachers will focus on the teaching methodology of the Ashtanga vinyasa yoga. We’ll guide you towards developing an authentic way of educating beginners through creating your own courses. We’ll coach you on how to integrate the Sanskrit counted guided method, Mysore style of Ashtanga as well as Pranayama into your own teaching.
We’ll host only eight students at our studio in Horsham, West Sussex and four online, so the highest level of personal attention will be given to each participant.
This course is accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals, adds to your CPD hours and allows you to grow professionally within the Alliance and beyond.
How to teach Ashtanga yoga to beginners
Irina Pashkevich Bourdier has been a dedicated yoga practitioner since 2000. She started teaching Ashtanga vinyasa yoga in 2008.
Irina is a Senior yoga teacher and a trainer with Yoga Alliance Professionals. She is a direct and certified teacher of the world-renowned yogis: John Scott (NZ, UK, Poland), David Keil (US), Shimon Ben-Avi (Israel) and Gregor Maehle (Australia). In the past 20 years, Irina has dedicated more than 2000h to the Teachers’ trainings and yogic CPDs. In addition to yoga education, Irina holds two Masters degrees in education, business, and linguistics.
Irina is passionate about teaching Ashtanga vinyasa yoga in a precise and compassionate way, crafting it for each person. Her students range from 20 to 85 years old; from professional gymnasts, ballet dancers, and athletes to those with MS, cancer, obesity and other difficult conditions.
Irina’s love for precision and personalisation of the yogic practices was enhanced by her translating and editing a book of the renowned South Korean yoga and anatomy teacher Vayu Jung “The Art of Observing and Adjusting”. Now she applies the principles of the book to help her students find and maintain their own unique balance within their body, breath, mind and spirit.
Since 2010 Irina has been studying with internationally renowned author and teacher, Gregor Maehle, who is famous for his knowledge of ancient scriptures and explicit way of teaching. Irina shares Kriya, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana and Dhyana (meditation spectrum of yoga) as taught by and learnt directly from Gregor.
After joining her family in Horsham, West Sussex a few years back, Irina has built a brand new yoga studio in the centre of Horsham – Iriness Yoga Horsham. She teaches daily Mysore Ashtanga yoga, Kriya, Pranayama, Meditations and leads courses and workshops for both beginners and experienced practitioners and teachers.
