MENTORING & WORKSHOPS
Tools to develop your own practice, your experience as a student and your evolution as a teacher are at the heart of these sessions. Group and individual explorations will help you find your unique and effective role as a yoga teacher and how you can positively impact student learning. There will be homework and reading to accompany the sessions.
SESSION 1 - VOICE AND CREATIVITY
Who am I as a teacher? Do I fit a style? What is my niche? What is teaching authentically? If these are questions you ask yourself then this session will guide you into a reflective process looking at language, your yoga practice and creativity to establish growth and longevity as a teacher and student. This session will set foundations for the second workshop by addressing what we as the teacher present to students.
We will explore;
Communication - how we can use language , silence and space with integrity
Courage - how to teach what resonates with you and what tools you can use to be present and open while prioritising self care.
Questioning - How our stories (personally and in your practice) can empower us to be a compassionate and relatable teachers with distinct offerings.
SESSION 2 - INTENTIONS AND ETHICS
How can you be useful? How can you be helpful? What do your students need? We experience a diverse range of students in class so how do we navigate our intentions, follow moral and ethical codes while still communicating our passion and knowledge of yoga? This session will develop ideas from the first session as we look at teaching mixed level classes, improvisation and individualised teaching.
We will explore;
Integrity - contemplative practices to align our role as teachers sharing in helpful and meaningful ways
Insight - observation techniques to appropriately use and develop verbal and manual assists
Impact - consistency and sequencing methods to ensure that students make progress
