Teaching Yoga

Essential Foundations and Techniques

Mark Stephens

Teaching Yoga by Mark Stephens

The primary focus of Stephens' guide for yoga teachers, Teaching Yoga, is an asana-by-asana guide to teaching. A wide selection of asanas from Tadasana to Savasana are included in this glossary-like resource. Each asana listing includes a photograph of a yogi demonstrating the position, as well as quick-reference notes discussing Primary Risks associated with the asana, Guiding Students into Asana, and What to Look for and Emphasize as you teach. Any teacher who has read through these basic guidelines will be well equipped to introduce students into new positions.
      Stephens also points out that behind every yoga teacher is a lesson plan. Why not learn to design yours to be appropriately sequenced, and integrated with meditation and pranayama as you choose? The yoga teacher's lesson plan guide will give you tools to help to make a class flow together seamlessly, while holding invisible structure that will keep your students engaged and improving.
      Much discussion is included in Teaching Yoga about physical anatomy, including well drawn and labeled diagrams of muscle groups, and their names and relationship to asana. Stephens also includes widely informational and helpful sections on teaching the subtle arts of Pranayama and Meditation.
      A surprising feature of Mark Stephens' textbook is the glossary section tucked in the back of the book. Included is an extensive resource section which includes current listings of non-profit yoga organizations, a listing of the primary styles of yoga in practice today, an appendix of Asanas with photography included, a table on how to sequence each asana within a practice, and more.
      An esteemed yoga instructor who has trained over seven hundred yoga teachers, Mark Stephens conducts classes, workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats worldwide. Practicing yoga since 1991 and teaching since 1996, Mark has sought out complementary approaches along his path as student and teacher, studying Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow, Tantra, yoga therapy, traditional yoga philosophy, and modern philosophies of being and consciousness. He currently lives and teaches in Santa Cruz, California, and is the founder and director of teacher training at Santa Cruz Yoga.


High Praise for Teaching Yoga:

"Yoga teachers and their students will love this book. Mark Stephens untangles the complexities of yoga philosophy, history, and energetics; offers clear and compelling techniques for teaching and exploring asanas, pranayama, and meditation, and gives teachers a rich array of practical tools for planning and sequencing classes, working with diverse students, and teaching with integrity and authenticity. Teaching Yoga should be in the hands of every teacher and dedicated student."
      -Seane Corn, yoga teacher and founder of Off the Mat, Into the World. ”
