Now Available for Preorder: The Professional Yoga Teacher’s Handbook

Meet The Professional Yoga Teacher’s Handbook, a new book to help both current and aspiring yoga teachers of any style and approach:

  • chart their course
  • choose the right trainings and continuing education
  • promote themselves mindfully
  • plan and assess their classes
  • develop healthy relationships with students, clients, and employers
  • navigate the landscape of online teaching
  • be professional whether teaching yoga full-time or as a volunteer

The book, to be released September 15, 2020, is the teacher training manual I have meant to write for a decade. I’ve put everything I know about teaching in it. It is here to help you in this strange new world.

You’ll find my advice on streaming classes and putting other content online, so it should be instantly helpful to you even if your regular or dream studio is not holding in-person classes yet. Most importantly, I encourage you to investigate your own blind spots and unexplored biases and outline ways to create an inclusive classroom to help people find connection with yoga.

Whether you’ve been teaching for a while and are looking for ways to adapt to a post-Covid world, or are considering making a career change or simply taking a teacher training for self-development, The Professional Yoga Teacher’s Handbook will be your guide.

In The Professional Yoga Teacher’s Handbook, Sage Rountree gives movement teachers of any background the tools they need to succeed. . . . It’s all here: from planning a class to getting a job to dealing with students to creating videos and other online content—valuable information for the post-pandemic landscape. It is a must-have resource for every yoga teacher and every teacher in training!
