The Art of Teaching Yoga is an advanced training providing yoga teachers the skills and information to take their teaching to the next level.

You will:

  • Learn to meet the needs of each of your yoga students every time.
  • Elevate your teaching beyond asana instruction and create the experience of yoga by learning how to teach beyond the physical body.
  • Inspire your students through honoring the energetic layers of being.
  • Bring yoga’s rich history and philosophical foundations into their awareness in the subtlest of ways.

Your students will be inspired to have your knowledge passed along to them by bringing them into the full experience of yoga.

Experienced yoga teacher trainer, Marianne Wells, will guide you in how to pace your teaching to meet the energy of each moment – beyond technique and methods – by being in touch with your true nature. Really Real Yoga® is a process of teaching observationally-based yoga that focuses primarily on the needs of the individual student. Rooted in knowledge of functional anatomy combined with yoga philosophy, Really Real Yoga® honors the traditions of Hatha yoga, and the body/mind that each student brings every day. Yoga teachers that seek to enhance their abilities and personal growth in the profession will learn advanced yoga teaching skills that are proven to resonate with a wide audience. Learn to effectively teach yoga to the individual while simultaneously leading a group – teaching people not poses.

Start delivering your best yoga class every time to a variety of yoga students, keep your yoga teaching fresh throughout your career and find daily inspiration for living your life with purpose!
