How is private teacher training different from so many others?
I have been part of a few really good and really different teacher trainings. I have hired and been taught by many yoga teachers fresh out of training or even a few years into their teaching role, and I always feel like there no one is truly ready to go out onto the world of real live students after only 200 hours of training. In large group settings there is more opportunity for the students to practice teach more bodies, but less time for the instructor to zero in on a soon to be teacher's specific issues. In small group settings, the students get lots of personal attention but fewer bodies to look at. And then, there is always the group dynamic that makes it difficult for the teacher to personalize the teaching to what the students really need. The training always has to be somewhat generic.
Private teaching training allows me, the teacher, to offer you, the student, a personalized, specialized and intensive experience. You will meet with me every week as well as have homework and outside learning experiences and together we will develop your teaching skills and knowledge of yoga to a place that you will feel like an almost seasoned teacher upon graduating.
What does this teacher training offer?
As a student in this training, you will learn the skills required to take the seat of the teacher through creative use of clear language, helpful imagery, thoughtful themes and intelligent sequencing to make the classes you offer safe, transformative and enjoyable so your students keep coming back for more.
You will learn applied anatomy, physiology and the energetics of yoga to help you be better able to create a supportive and safe environment for your students. With the proper use of props and an understanding of the ways to assist and adjust your student you can be ready to deal with just about any “body” that walks into your classroom with confidence and experience.
We will delve deeply into the history, philosophy and lifestyle associated with the yoga tradition to help your students understand the value of yoga on more than just a physical level thereby offering a full life practice. You will develop your own personal practice set in the yogic tradition so that you as the teacher can be supported and grounded in the tradition you choose to teach.
