Teacher Training Materials

All the items you need and all the stuff you need to know in order to go through the Finish Line of your Riverflow Virtual Hot Yoga Teacher Training:

1. Portable Radiant Heater

Radiant heat is amazing - it heats the object (ie, person), not the air. You get heat that feels like the sun - and no drying out the air in the room.

When you are practicing your script on your Guinea Pig (best friend, willing family member, Accountability Partner, fellow teacher trainee or Teacher), you will need to make sure they are well heated.

The Optimus Heater is also radiant a well priced and effective heater.  We sometimes use these to boost "colder spots" in the room during the winter.

NOTE: Don't use a regular space heater for your script practice - this will NOT get the Guinea Pig hot enough. The radiant heater will make them sweat and that's key. Just place it on the floor, very close to the person and turn up the heat. Oscillating feature is great when the student is lying down for the floor series. It has a safetey feature so it will turn off automatically if the room or heater gets too hot - yes their idea of "too hot" differs from ours - so if it turns off, turn it to OFF and let it cool down for a bit before turning on again

 

2. Portable Full Length Mirror - optional

What the heck, you've been meaning to get one of these anyway - how else would you know that those shoes just don't go with those pants?

This one is cool - not too costly, large enough, and depending on your car you can take it off the frame and toss it in the back (or hatchback if you have one) and take it to your Script-Buddy's location. Along with your heater, you are now a traveling Hot Yoga Teacher in Training.

 

3. Video and Audio Recording Device - Your Choice

You will be video and audio recording your script practice sessions and sending them to us weekly so you need something that will do the job: your MAC or laptop,  your iPhone, or a Digital Camera with a mic.

GREAT OPTION: Record your script sessions as a Google Hangout (be sure to click Record Session before you begin) and it will automatically record and create a YouTube post of your session. You can go back and make it Private or Unlisted and then post the link to your video on your PERSONAL PAGE/ASANA.
