The Spark - advanced skills and mentoring for yoga teachers
Teachers. Are you in a rut? Bored with the sequences and routines? Need inspiration and new information? Going over the same stuff time and time again? Not sure what poses to include in your ‘Vinyasa Flow’ or even which ones are safe to teach anymore…
Or, maybe you’ve completed a 200-hour TT but feel it was too generic? Not enough in depth information?
I can help you with all of this
Drawing from my 35 years + of practice through all the major yoga lineages (Ashtanga, Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative) 22 years of teaching yoga plus my background in dance education specialising in performance psychology and physiology. I have so much information about the moving body I want to share with you…
This 30 hour programme is for you if:
You want to be able to stand out from the crowd and draw students to you curious for more.
You feel alone and without community
Other teachers seem like they are doing it better
You don’t know what your own authentic voice as a teacher sounds like
