20-Hour Advancing Your Teaching with Morgan Cowie, Taranee Ponjani and Philippe Van De Maele Martin

Friday, January 20th – Sunday, January 22nd

Whether you’ve been teaching for one or fifteen years, you might have found that despite all the incredible rewards we encounter as professional yoga teachers, it can be, well, lonely. We all have moments of self-doubt, imposter syndrome and isolation because when we’re standing at the front of the room, we are kind of on our own.

We can find lots of trainings for specialty skillsets and modalities but it’s hard to just find a course that is affordable, valuable and geared simply towards advancing our skills at teaching basic and intermediate drop-in classes.

Morgan Cowie, Taranee Ponjani and Philippe Van de Maele Martin have created a weekend training experience where you will be surrounded by fellow yoga teacher professionals all working towards clarifying their unique signal, finding effective and innovative ways to teach more complicated sequences and poses and discussing big issues within the profession, like cultural appropriation, power and consent.This weekend will leave you better able to understand the gifts that you bring as a teacher, able to deal with the shadows of imposter syndrome and doubt. You will have tried and tested methods of helping students (and yourself) to safely and effectively move towards complex poses like handstand, splits and bigger backbends. And finally, you will have a safe and caring space to work with some of big ethical challenges we face as teachers.

What You Will Be Offered:

  • Theory and Structure of Successful Classes;
  • Strategies to Uncover And Believe In Your Voice;
  • Dealing With Imposter Syndrome;
  • Working with Cultural Appropriation and Decolonization;
  • How to Practice and Teach: Advanced Arm Balancing and Inversions;
  • How to Practice and Teach: Backbends and Splits;
  • Sequencing Skills: Integration of Body and Concept, Layering and Transferring Skills, Class Structure, and Themes;
  • Adjustments and Consent in a Post-Covid World;
  • Working with Feedback from Students and Studios.

TIME: Friday 6-9, Saturday and Sunday 9-6pm

COSTS: $450 +HST 

We offer subsidized spots to racialized, LGBTQ+, folks living with physical and other barriers as well as other marginalized students on a case by case basis. Please message morgan@mosaicyoga.ca to start a conversation.
