The aim is to reflect the fundamentals of Śrī Krishnamacharya’s teaching, namely transmission occurs through the direct experience of the teacher with the student’s practice and study.

Individualised Professional Supervision within a personal dialogue.

“You must have teachers who will have supervision
to respond in the following fields:

Health, Psychology and Spirituality.

meeting with his 16 senior Western students
from 8 countries worldwide in London June 16th 1998

As well drawing on his decades of working within 121 situations in the UK, this experience also benefits from Paul’s many years of sitting in with Desikachar during his evening clinical work as a consultant setting parameters and short and long term directions for teaching assistants working within the KYM.

Aims of 121 Supervision Meetings

They are offered for Yoga Teachers who wish to further refine their individual Yoga lesson skills or group class curriculum processes through professional and supervised support for their Yoga Teaching.

This facility also became a valid and useful medium for Yoga teachers to have supervision for their group classes and especially 121 students or clients.

It has proved especially helpful as a means of live intervention within the actual process of working with students or clients rather than the more usual post-mortem style of case study reviews or write-ups.

Using Supervision in Teaching or Clinical situations as an intervention between the initial consultation and commencing, as well as within the actual ongoing process of working with the student or client, has facilitated a learning opportunity for teachers.

It is a helpful means to supervise your short term and long term teaching content intentions prior to the teaching commencing as well as during your work.

We can explore your individual or group class teaching processes via:

  • Setting learning intentions and evaluating student outcomes
  • Individual or group problem resolution
  • Applying Yoga to specific health conditions
  • Applying Yoga to specific life situations
  • Applying Yoga to specific activity situations
  • Short and long term personalised practice plans
  • Short and long term review priorities
  • Interpersonal interactions and intrapersonal responses
  • Setting priorities for forward mapping
  • Group class levels development strategies
  • Beginners Group class curriculum planning
  • Intermediate Group class curriculum planning
  • Advanced Group class curriculum planning

and find the right tools. Fundamentally, the solution is in the patient’s discernment.
No one can understand for the patient.”
