What's this course about?

What we say matters! And if you are a yoga teacher, the things you say in class (and how you say them) deeply affect the student's learning experience. It's no secret that yoga is becoming increasingly popular in the West. And though this era offers an exciting opportunity to share the teachings and benefits of a yoga practice, it also means teachers must cultivate effective teaching methods. As such, yoga teachers must explore the best way to meet the needs of their diverse students. And, more than anything else, in an āsana classes, yoga teachers meet those needs through cueing.
As such, yoga teachers must be skillful in their personal communication and cueing methods so that they can reach the ever-growing and evolving yoga population. Students are coming to classes with different cultural backgrounds, experiences, knowledge, and needs. So the big question is, as a yoga teacher, how are you going to reach those students through skillful language and cues? Additionally, how can you be effective and efficient in the way that you cue? And, maybe most importantly, how can you cue in ways that cultivate authenticity while still honoring yoga's history and lineage--and meet the students' needs?

The answer to the above questions? Well, it varies. But one way is through language. As teachers, we must study our own language habits, patterns, and cues in the effort to evolve as communicators in the yoga classroom. Join me for this fully online, self-paced course that uncovers the theory and practice of effective cueing in yoga classes!
