Enhance & Advance Your Teaching Skills

This is a mainly theoretical course which will include group discussions, personal reflection and practical exercises. We will examine how to manage time and set priorities when preparing classes of varying lengths and styles; how to create a safe and accessible physical space; how to hold space so students feel safe and comfortable on a psychological/emotional level; and how to weave elements such as mantras, meditation and mudras into yoga classes.

We will also examine the nature of the Teacher/Student relationship, the importance of boundaries and our personal motives as a teacher and finally, we will examine how to cultivate a vibrant inner life, and why this is essential to being an effective yoga teacher.
