The Art of Teaching Yoga


Welcome to this 50-hour professional development course.

After several decades of leading teacher trainings both here in New Zealand and internationally, I have come to the conclusion that most trainings (including my own), are heavy on content and light on the art and technique of delivery.  And that’s a big problem, not only for teachers newly graduated from training programs but also for experienced teachers who have gotten into a rut.  Which is why, five years ago, I began crafting a 50-hour addendum to my 21-day residential course that would help new teachers and inspire old ones to radically hone their ability to teach with clarity of purpose and to provide their students with captivating learning experiences.  Now I’m ready to share this material with others.

As a post-lineage pioneer, I’ve been at the forefront of generating a new model for practicing and teaching Yoga that goes beyond prescriptive methods and heralds a return to Yoga as a path of self-inquiry.  In this weekly practice, discourse and discussion, I will share with you the defining principles of my model for teaching and how this can be used as a template to revolutionize your practice and instruction.  Together we’ll explore the nature of a personal practice and how the teacher’s self-nourishment and deepening perception can provide embodied resources for teaching from a place of deep authenticity.  I’ll expand on how to progressively lay the foundation for fostering inquiry-based learning–creating the context to increase the student’s capacity to investigate, deduct, adapt and evolve based on their unique life and journey. And we’ll unpack the actual technical process of teaching: how to build instruction progressively, how to layer instruction to make it more accessible, and how to make moments of pause portals for your students to digest and integrate new experiences.
