40-Hour Mastering the Art of Teaching Training
Owning a yoga studio for almost 14 years gave me an opportunity to see many teachers come and go, and many teachers who wished to teach but found themselves inadequately prepared. Every studio treasures their good teachers and treats their inexperienced teachers as disposable. With proliferation of yoga teacher training programs, it seems the quality has gone down. Most teacher trainings ask the participants to practice most of the time and spend incredibly little time teaching them how to teach. Other parts such as anatomy and philosophy also suffer lack of focus and sufficiency.
Therefore, I am opening the doors to my private space for semi-private training up to 6 people where we can focus on what teachers did not get enough of in their normal 200, 300, and even 500 hours of training but will need desperately if they are to attempt to teach and compete with already established teachers.
You will learn in an intimate setting, have personal attention all the time, receive great feedback and support.
You will emerge better qualified as a teacher, more competitive, and more confident in your teaching ability. You will be able to earn more as a teacher, be more versatile, more skillful, and more helpful to those you teach.
