Combining Authenticity, Joy and Peace
Over the years, many yoga teachers have told me they felt their practice and teaching had become “mechanical”, or even that they felt pressured to teach in a way that goes against their integrity.
As a teacher who has been teaching for almost 40 years, my heart went out to them.
They were dedicated. All the “content” of yoga was at the center of their practice. However, something was missing. Something critical to their success and to their experience of peace and joy in yoga: The process and technique of teaching that is, the delivery.
In addition to continuing my practice and international teaching commitments I have spent five years developing The Art of Teaching. This program gives teachers the resources, techniques and approaches they need to fully realize their own potential and that of their students through shared-inquiry. It radically hones teachers’ ability to teach with clarity of purpose and their ability to experience delight in the teaching process and provide their students with captivating learning in an atmosphere of friendship.
Conducted over 7 months and 14 sessions, The Art of Teaching begins on May 5th for the first virtual cohort. Attend the classes at a time and pace that suits you, and take advantage of opportunities for live engagement, discussion and question and answer sessions, at the time-zone friendly scheduled livestream events.
