Using Anatomy to Refine & Empower your Teaching hosted by Dr Yogi

Saturday 27th April 2019, 10.30 – 5.15pm

(Aldridge Studio)

Teaching yoga can often be just as challenging as it is rewarding.  With busy classes, high turnover and lots of students who are new to yoga coming to class it can be easy for yoga teachers to feel isolated and overwhelmed, often not knowing where to turn for support with the many questions we have.

This daylong workshop offers a space to ask the questions that you never seem to get the opportunity to ask.  We’ll cover a variety of different topics with the aim of deepening your own yoga practice and refining and empowering your teaching so that it is inclusive and informed by the most up to date research on movement.

With a mixture of discussion, lecture, group work and asana practice we will explore many areas.

Suitable for Yoga Teachers & Teachers in Training.

Early Bird £75 when paid in full before 27th January 2019 – Full Price £85 thereafter.
