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.
