A summary of what to expect and receive from these sessions.:
Teaching Yoga is much more than a set of techniques. It is the ability to create safe space in our classrooms for students to stabilize, move inwards and grow in their capacity to sense what their needs are. These skills take a life time to nurture and embody. We, as yoga teachers, experience immediately that Yoga’s methods are diverse and who we will serve through these teachings is also diverse. Because of this, it can be confusing and at times contradictory, what to teach, when to teach it and to whom. These circles are to dispel this confusion. Over nine sessions over ten months, the group practice and support will give you the knowledge of how to apply the new tools, refine techniques you already possess and embody being a yoga teacher who holds sacred space for others to embody compassion and skill.
As a Yoga teacher, you also need to be nurtured and supported so your journey. Last year, everyone in the group shared how important these monthly meetings were to practice together with friends, unpack teaching, learn new levels of practice and hear each others insights. So important to understand becoming a teacher of depth takes community and time. These monthly circles give everyone the time and space to understand the complex, rewarding, and at times, difficult journey of being a teacher.
These Teachers’ Circles are about giving you the resources to:
~ take care of yourself,
~ meet and learn with your peers,
~ learn to create classes which support the internal Yoga journey,
~ promote compassionate action,
~ understand skilful functional anatomy techniques,
~ embody the best of mindfulness and Yoga philosophy
~ refine your skills of teaching.
