In-Person learning: August 7-13, 2023
Location: Awakening Yoga Academy, Seattle Washington
The Art of Instruction is a 40 hour in-person program designed for those who have already completed their initial 200 hour certificates and are ready to step firmly into the Seat of the Teacher with authenticity, clarity, and purpose.
Impactful teaching is a craft that goes far beyond lovely poses or flashy sequences. It takes time to reveal enough about ourselves in order to tease out the authentic teacher that lives inside. Grounded in practice, experience on the mat, in the texts, and always as a lifelong learner. Becoming a teacher is not a one size fits all approach.
If you are ready to move past just a copy+paste approach to your teaching, this is the course for you. Find your natural teaching rhythms, sharpen up your cueing, speak with confidence, and get clear on what you offer, and how you offer it best to bring more students into your classes and more purpose into your teaching.
*This course is intentionally only offered in person. Space is limited.
- Expanding your language techniques
- Cueing development
- Learning & teaching styles
- Finding your voice
- Embodying the archetype of the teacher (among others!)
- Providing the tools for you to define your unique and most effective teaching style
This is a development-style course and all students are expected to be active participants in their own learning.
