If you have ever dreamed of leading a retreat or stepping on the road to becoming a trainer, this course is for you! Being a trainer and leading talk Yoga sessions is very different from leading a movement-based experience.
As a new trainer, you may rightly worry about:
- making Yoga about rules as opposed to a living exploration
- being a talking head
- not having a background in education
- getting out of your depth
I’ve been teaching in a variety of contexts for my whole career, and have an MA in Education. I’m passionate about good teaching! I’ve taught taught Pedagogy 101 for Yoga Teachers at the Toronto Yoga Conference, the Whistler Yoga Conference and at through the Akhanda Apprenticeship and Beginning Trainers program.
At the end of this course, you’ll feel excited to meet the challenge of leading groups in discussions about Yoga wisdom that apply to their unique and busy lives, and will leave with a plan that you’ve tested in your practicum that would fit perfectly with the retreat or course you envision offering.
As a bonus, when Yoga Alliance brings forward mandatory education for aspiring YTT trainers in Pedagogy, you’ll be ready with your 12-hour certificate in the Art of Facilitation – Becoming a Yoga Wisdom Teacher.
