Who can join?

We recommend that you have done a 200 hour teacher training (any style) but this is not mandatory! If you haven’t: no worries, just let us know and we will look into what other experiences you have and we’ll give you extra support during the course. 

The intention is to give you, as a teacher, more tools; to broaden your teaching skills as well as your target groups. Perhaps you have done a training in a dynamic yoga style and would like to add a slow style to your teaching menu as well – to be able to teach back to back classes at studios and retreats?

 

We (Melanie and Jennie) have worked together for over 10 years and have 45 years of teaching experience between us. What we keep coming back to is how important it is to be authentic, to find “your voice” as a teacher and to have the courage to be YOURSELF when you are teaching! Working as a yoga teacher is amazing – but it also takes a lot of energy – and can be very draining if you are not being your authentic self and looking after yourself. It’s so easy to not give ourselves that time/attention/self care – so in the training we will also put emphasis on how to create space for your own health and practice: to stay balanced and mentally strong.

Questions? Just send us email and we’re happy to help. 

 

Much Love,
