Yoga with TQ Sims

TQ Sims’ skills at directing students through intelligent movement have led him to his current role as a modern postural yoga teacher, with extensive trainings along the way (see below).

 

In his classes or in private sessions, TQ offers a yoga practice with asana focused on developing strength, stability, and skill—in body and mind. Classes include flow and alignment exploration linked through breath, guided by specific verbal cues and an option for hands on assistance. TQ is also a big fan of bringing in other movement techniques not typically seen in a yoga class, many based on an intelligent use of varied props and supports. The practice may also include philosophy, chanting, dedication, breath regulation, meditation, and/or relaxation. His classes are also known to have great soundtracks and several doses of humor. TQ realizes that the practice of yoga goes far beyond what we do on the yoga mat, so he presents teachings from yoga and spiritual lineages in a way that they can be applied to our modern lives, and he encourages students to cultivate happiness and freedom in their own lives by offering happiness and freedom to all beings.

MENTORSHIP TRAINING

For teachers with 200+ hours of training who would like to further their professional development, hone their skills, and refine their offerings, TQ Sims offers Mentorship Trainings. Through this mentorship, TQ will work with you to co-create a training focused on the specific areas where you would like to improve. TQ will share with you techniques in creating unique class plans that bridge dharma and movement, including asana, skills and drills, and other movement modalities, so that your classes are effective and memorable. He will also help you find your unique voice to call out instruction with skill to address an entire class or an individual. TQ is also highly skilled at training teachers in the philosophy and application of hands on assists. He will share with you how to identify what assists a student might need, how to tell how much to assist, and how to offer the assist so that it is mutually beneficial. Additionally, there will be practical instruction on how to best promote your offerings to students and studios. This program is co-created between the mentor and apprentice to foster experential learning. The program includes private one-on-one sessions, class observation, homework/feedback, and self-study practices.  To inquire, send a message to TQ, and for more information, go to swanriveryoga.com
