WORKSHOPS

Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program

You are capable of more than you know…

New session starting Spring/Summer 2017. Contact info@yogacentral.ca for more details.

Teaching yoga does not come easy. It must be cultivated, with love and curiosity.

The Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program honours your desire to teach, your questions and views. It will consider and challenge who you are as a yoga student and teacher, requiring thoughtful, honest and enthusiastic effort.

This is a real-time, hands-on program. You will teach, adjust, critique, absorb, share and unite. Most importantly, you will nurture the seeds planted during teacher training and compassionately witness them as they germinate and bloom.

The program is six consecutive weeks. To maximize engagement and learning, only five teachers are accepted per session.

• Discuss aspirations, identify obstacles and create a plan to gain confidence and competence

• Teach yoga and perform adjustments, followed by peer and mentor feedback

• Review and feedback of a yoga teaching plan

• TMP Manual

Research shows that meditators receive numerous health benefits and even reduce their biological age. Meditators sleep better, eat better, manage pain better and require fewer doctors visits. Most importantly meditation is another way to reduce stress and live a healthier, more compassion life. Experienced or not…Please join Carleen for meditation and discussion. Together we will debunk the myths of meditation, experience the benefits, and create the space for a new normal. Just for the health of it!Bio:
