Your training is more than just learning yoga poses. Sure, you’ll learn the technical things you need to be a great teacher – anatomy, sequencing, cueing, and all that other stuff. But you’re also taking a deep, transformational journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-love. When it’s done you’ll be a different person… not a person who’s changed, but rather a person who has a truer understanding of who you really are. You’ll see the beauty and grace inside of yourself, and you’ll be ready to share it with the world in your own unique way.
Off the mat
You’ll learn an advanced teaching style (called “off the mat”) that allows you to teach like a pro, starting with the very first class you teach! Instead of demonstrating every pose from the front of the class, you’ll learn to teach while walking around the room so that you can really see your students and help them deepen their practice. This is an absolutely essential tool if you want to be a top teacher!
You’ll learn so much about yoga, anatomy, and sequencing that you’ll be able to create your own class plans, with endless creativity and variety! (At many other schools you’ll only learn one or two class plans that you’ll teach again and again, and you won’t gain the knowledge or confidence to create your own unlimited class plans.)
