Teaching Tune-Up - Teachers Weekend with Mary Catherine Starr, Saturday & Sunday, October 21st & 22nd, 1:00-5:00 pm $135 before October 14th ($155 after)
Dates: Saturday & Sunday
Have you been teaching yoga for a while and could use a tune-up or refresher? Or perhaps you recently graduated from teacher training and now that you're actually teaching, you have lots of burning questions that you didn't know would come up? This teachers' weekend is for certified yoga teachers who are seeking guidance, inspiration, and a safe space to discuss teaching with other teachers.
The topics covered in this weekend-long training are as follows:
Sequencing: learn how to sequence your classes so that they are more enjoyable, safe, accessible, and insightful for your students (and for you as the teacher!). We will cover sequencing styles, methods, and best practices, and you will leave with lots of new inspiration and confidence when it comes to planning + mapping out your classes.
Hands-On Assists: learn how to provide hands-on assists in a safe, ethical, and helpful way, and how to get off of your mat and out into the studio while teaching. We will focus on using your hands with intention in order to connect with, teach, and adjust your students. This portion of the weekend will be very hands-on and practice-focused.
Growing Your Yoga Biz: learn how to market yourself as a local yoga teacher, gain confidence in promoting your services, and develop a brand that speaks to who you are, what you are passionate about, and what sets you apart from other teachers.
Honing Your Voice as a Yoga Teacher: to close our weekend, we'll spend some time doing a bit of svadhyaya in order to tap into your truest teachings and leave feeling better-equipped to present authentically as a yoga teacher.
What to bring: a notebook and something to write with, snacks + drinks, your yoga mat, + your burning questions! Come ready to move, practice, and use your hands.
Note: this weekend qualifies for 8 Yoga Alliance CE Hours/Credits in the Teaching Methodology category.
