Becoming A Master Teacher & Mastering the Business of Yoga
The goal of this program is to offer the existing yoga teacher a well-rounded curriculum that fills the gaps that a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training can’t provide. Teachers accepted into this program will have been teaching regularly for a minimum of 6 months, having an idea of their growing voice and style as an instructor.
Over the course of nine 3-day weekends the teacher will gain a better understanding on sequencing, theming, teaching to multiple audiences, anatomy, propping, chakras and philosophy. Yoga teachers don’t often have the time to practice so ample time every weekend will be dedicated to allowing the teacher to come back to being a student. Part of the practice time will be taught by the lead instructor and other teachers in the program.
The final element of the program is understanding how to actually run a yoga business with deep dives into how to offer and teach privates, workshops and retreats. Other elements on marketing, finding your niche and your perfect student will also be explored.
