Mindful Vinyasa: A Workshop for Yoga Teachers

I have been practicing vinyasa yoga for almost twenty years and teaching it for sixteen. It is my preferred approach to practice. However, I have also studied alignment based styles that have helped me to bring very specific techniques to my vinyasa teaching, allowing me to support my students in expanding their practice rather than simply working in a repetitive way and I love to share these tools with other vinyasa yoga teachers.  In this workshop, we will explore some of the core elements of mindful vinyasa- namely rhythm, intention, & flow, so that you can walk away with some very specific skills to put into practice right away.

July 28th 9:30 am- 4pm

Skill in Action: Advanced Teaching Intensive

My most popular teacher training, the Skill in Action program is a 5 day Yoga Teaching Intensive designed to support yoga teachers in crafting exceptional yoga classes. This program is open to anyone who has completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program and has an interest in teaching yoga with greater skill and refinement. Each day will include lectures and discussions on topics related to teaching, opportunities to practice teaching, and an intermediate level group asana practice. This will not only be a chance to work on some of the hard skills related to teaching but also an opportunity to engage in conversation with other teachers about some of the challenges we face and to troubleshoot strategies for overcoming them.

Location: Shala Yoga, Squamish BC

Dates: Nov 2-4th & Nov 16-18th (Friday evening session, all day Sat/Sun)
