One definition of yoga is “relationship.” In this online intensive designed for teachers at any level of experience and in any style of yoga or movement teaching, we will examine the relationships that teachers have with:
themselves: self-talk, self-perception
their students: boundaries and responsibilities
other teachers: collegiality
studios: how to get hired, how to be a team player
money: basics of taxes, pricing, and money management
the law: what to know
You will finish the course with a concrete plan for being completely clear and professional in all your relationships, to the benefit of yourself, your students, and the yoga community at large.
I finished feeling significantly more confident and inspired about where my career could be one year or five years from now, and more compassionate toward myself about the process of starting out as a new yoga teacher.
—Elizabeth Bechard, Professionalism student
