“I loved Ellen's  Workshop. The workshop gave me much more confidence in my teaching and a map for how to design and present my class.” - Leydin Kotapish

Making the transition from being certified and understanding yoga techniques conceptually and physically -- to teaching it -- is a big step. This teaching technique class is a place to hone your skills as a teacher, find your voice, work on designing and creating a class, and find the way you teach best.

  • How do you demonstrate and lead a class?

  • How do you give specific insights or corrections and keep the class going?

  • How do you use words to cue the class?

  • How do you give images, use metaphors and keep the class engaged physically and intellectually?

  • Do you memorize what you want to do - or are you a go with the flow type of teacher?

  • Do you project your voice well?

  • Are your instructions clear?

  • Are you comfortable with your adjustment skills?

  • How can you get off your mat to help give adjustments and insights to the students while still keeping the class moving?

In our small group you will find a safe environment in which you can practice finding your teaching voice, practice designing and cueing sequences, and learn how to lead the class in a thoughtful manner. This class will be filled with positive and constructive feedback as we take time for each participant to teach in many small sequences.

Please come prepared with a 1 - 2 min sequence to teach to the group.
