Online Individualised eLearning within a 121 Personal Dialogue
Over the past decade, with the advent of online technologies, I found myself increasingly involved in virtual teaching situations within Yoga. Here I offered 121 video meetings to facilitate a personalised approach between teacher and student. After some years of exploring online 121 meetings as a means of transmission I now feel comfortable in offering more structured teaching options within the wider Yoga community.

From exploring this means of transmission with students with the support of the extensive student workbooks from my live small group Yoga Study Modules Courses, I feel comfortable in offering this as a valid structured modularised textual teaching option within the wider Yoga community. I feel this has now become a valid means of working online 121 to facilitate access to studying Yoga Texts and Yoga Practice Theory, accumulated from my decades long studentship with TKV Desikachar.
3. The Online Art of Foundation Yoga Series – 121 eStudy Multi-Topic Module One
The Online Foundation Yoga Study Series Module 1 is offered as a starting point for students wishing to explore Yoga more, but finding the range of Yoga practice and study options in the cYs Programme offering to many mono-topic choices. This online eModule draws together four of the core practice and study strands that this approach specialises in, into one multi-topic 7.5 hour programme. From this hands-on experience developmental choices will become clearer.
For more information on the background to the four topics that combine within this Online Multi-Topic eStudy Module read the Art of Yoga Foundation Study Series Modules One to Five Overview.
It consists of nine 121 video meetings to facilitate a personalised approach and in-depth transmission between teacher and student. It introduces the student, through an online teaching dialogue, to the primary principles and essential teachings from Krishnamacharya and Desikachar on the application of four core topics, namely Āsana, Prāṇāyāma, Mantra and Sūtra techniques and theory.
