Sanskrit Pronunciation for Yoga Teachers and Curious Yogis

Sanskrit can be intimidating and tongue-twisting to the beginning yoga teacher and even to students who have been practicing for years. Come learn the Sanskrit alphabet and improve your pronunciation in a fun, friendly and accessible way. Learn to appreciate and savor the feel of the Sanskrit language in your mouth, on your tongue and on your nervous system (kind of like a really good piece of chocolate!). Leave with more confidence to introduce Sanskrit names of poses to your students or use them in your own practice. No previous knowledge or experience required! The focus will be on pronunciation from a transliteration of Sanskrit. We will not be learning to read or write Sanskrit Devanagari script.

Cost:  $35 (Register by 1/18), $45 after.

Open Your Mouth and Teach! Articulate instruction for Yoga Teachers

Get off your mat, stop demonstrating everything and teach with confidence using your voice, eyes, and mind. This workshop will give you a “toolbox” with which to approach teaching yoga so that you can truly see your students and help each student develop his/her practice. When we “demo-teach”, we and our students get stuck and our classes become stagnant rather than places of growth and development. If you are already teaching off the mat, get out of “aural ruts” and repetitive language. Breathe fresh air into your classes, push your teaching and your students into a new realm with your new toolbox! Open to those currently teaching, those who hope to teach as well as to any practitioner who would like a framework with which to learn and practice yoga.

Cost: $55 (Register by 1/18), $65 after.

Full weekend registration: $199 by 1/18/19

This workshop is highly interactive and includes partner work, group discussion, and audio experiences.
