We’ve told the world that yoga can help, and now the people are turning up in droves to find out how. It’s not enough anymore to know how to teach a pre-planned sequenced class. We need to know how to adapt to the people in the room and make yoga practice more broadly accessible. One of the oldest definitions of yoga from the Katha Upanishad is “skill in action.” Our students are pushing us to enrich our skill set repertoire in order to be good teachers for them. The intention of this workshop is to help you grow your capacity to be the teacher your students need you to be, and in your heart you want to be, too.

The growth of yoga therapy has emerged from this need. But as we have focused on learning to provide personalised practice for the one, it’s become clear that what is equally needed are more knowledgeable and skilled group yoga teachers who can adapt to the needs of the many in a group class setting. This workshop is for us.

Teacher training does not end with the first 200 hours; it just begins. Even when we continue to study, very few electives address the issues we turn to our Facebook friends to help us solve – the nitty gritty of turning up every class, being the best teacher we can to the people who have shown up, doing our best not to hurt them, and over time helping those students grow in the ways that yoga practice can help us do. We’ll draw on our collective experience to personalise the general principles and make them as applicable as possible in your lives – the people who show up.

In this workshop, Lisa Kaley-Isley will look at the principles of cultivating healthy teacher-student relationships. This is part of a series of workshops that can also be taken as standalone weekends. Part 1 will focus on Classroom Management and Teaching Principles on 7/8 September.

What our students say

A really beautiful balance of theory and practice, blending Western diagnostic criteria and scientific understanding with yoga therapy in an enlightening way. This truly allowed for integration of knowledge to create new understanding for me. Thank you. Nicola Campbell on Yoga for Eating Disorders and Emotional Trauma, October 2016
