Always wondered what it would be like to share your yoga obsession with others? Love yoga but wish you knew why you do what you do and what all those Sanskrit words mean? Dabbling with the idea of taking a yoga teacher training course?
In this class, we'll learn some specific alignment cues and techniques in popular yoga asana (poses), practice a little Sanskrit pronunciation, play with creating a custom sequence, and you'll even get to try your hand at teaching in a totally supportive forum!
We'll chat about what it's like to teach yoga professionally and as a hobby (I've done both!) And you'll be able to pick my brain with your top yoga questions.
Learning to teach yoga can help you become a more confident public speaker, deepen your awareness of your body and mind, enhance your personal practice, give you something fun to do with friends, or open your world to a new career path!

“I believe that nothing in life is an accident. Everything happens as a result of your actions, your choices, your karma. Your karma is linked to everyone else’s and we have a collective responsibility to live in such a way that builds ourselves up, builds each other up and holds our entire global community up to the light that glows within us. Every choice matters and you can tap into an infinite source of wisdom, love, and energy to help guide you in making the best possible choices in this one precious life.”
