Most teacher trainings provide teachers with the essential foundations for conducting public classes but often leave graduates without more in-depth training in negotiating the teacher/student relationship . 

Yoga teachers may lack an understanding community to address questions about their work, debrief difficult teacher/student relationships and discuss ethics. 

In this workshop participants will gain a theoretical and experiential foundation in the unique qualities of the teacher/student relationship as it pertains to yoga teaching in diverse settings, personal and professional boundaries, self care and what it means to teach from a strengths-based, trauma-informed place.

Nicole Marcia has been a yoga teacher, yoga therapist and trainer since 2004. In 2009, she was awarded a master’s degree with a specialization in yoga therapy from Lesley University in Boston, MA. She is the yoga therapist at the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addictions, where she works with in-patient clients in various stages of recovery from mental health and addiction issues. She is the director of training at Yoga Outreach, and a faculty member at Ajna Yoga therapy School, Langara College Continuing Studies, Stenberg College and the Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage.
