With my co-owner Lies Sapp, I lead a 200-hour Yoga Alliance–registered yoga teacher training at the Carrboro Yoga Company in central North Carolina. Over the course of eight months, join us and the very best guest teachers around in an exploration of what yoga means, how to teach it, and the best path for you. Our next program begins in September 2014.

I also offer weekend and weeklong intensives nationwide for teachers interested in working with athletes, and an online teaching yoga to athletes course and community to connect teachers from around the world who work with athletes—or want to learn how.
Now available: an online course on developing sequences to keep your students balanced and your classes creative! This will be an invaluable resource for planning classes that serve your students and keep you inspired.

There must be intellectual friction, a healthy sense of confusion, as you process the new information in light of your understanding and experience. This is cognitive dissonance, the sometimes dizzying feeling you have when your assumptions are questioned. It may even feel like you’re having your mind blown! read more from Teachasana →
