Feedback Hours (25/25)

  1. 8/9/17

    • 60 Minute Modo, 60 minutes of feedback from Michael Lowney

      • Total Hours: 2

    • What did I learn?

      • Focus on my breath cues in and out of poses, not so much once we are in the pose. Link the breath to the movement in and out. 

      • We talked about different transitions than the transitions I learned at training. He advised me to remember the pace of the class that I learned at training and to always try to come back to it. He said that "NY Modo" can be faster and to try to keep it at the Kelowna pace. New Yorkers need it. 

  2. 8/9/17

    1. 60 Minute Modo, 30 minutes of feedback from Lindsay Janisse

      1. Total Hours: 1.5

    2. What did I learn?

      1. Cue out of transitions better

      3. LInk cues smoother and faster to get in and out in one fluid motion.

  3. 9/15/17

    1. 60 Minute Modo, 30 minutes of feedback from Randy Aaron

      1. Total Hours: 1.5

    2. What did I learn

      1. "inhale/exhale" is one complete sentence. Don't cue one without the other.

      2. Extra information is great (origin of names, etc..) but don't let it get in the way of the flow of the class.

      3. Release an adjustment on the exhale, not the inhale.

  4. 9/22/17

    1. 90 Minute Teacher Training class with Val

      1. Total Hours: 1.5

    2. What did I learn

      1. Transitions as are taught in NY, which are slightly different than we were taught at training.

      2. My authoritative style is great, but soften it a bit.

      3. The flow sequence is just an extension of Modo, so keep some of the same transitions (ie. twist right first).

  5. 10/2/17

    1. 60 Minute Modo, 30 minutes of feedback from Val

      1. Total Hours: 1.5

    2. What did I learn

      1. Be more specific on out-going cues

      2. Find my own internal rhythm to the class. It will translate.

      3. Say less. Let them experience posses on their own.

    1. 75 Minute Modo, 30 minutes of feedback from Val

      1. Total Hours: 1.75

    2. What did I learn

      1. Still longer on the first side than the second

      2. I give a lot of information on the first side and don't follow up on the second side. Break it up and evenly distribute the information.

      3. Fix "inhale" cues on coming out of poses. Go back to the cues I know for the correct cueing.
