The skillful use of a heart-oriented theme can transform a regular yoga class into an exquisite experience of awakening and inner transformation. In this training, you learn how to:

  • Demystify themes and weave them into your classes
  • Draw on themes from nature, yoga, relationships, yogic philosophy, yogic deities, holidays, and your own rich personal experience of life
  • Introduce your theme in a powerful and captivating way
  • Artistically interweave themes with alignment instructions
  • Practice specific contemplation exercises that draw out your unique character and gifts
  • Find your authentic voice and allow themes to flow naturally from within

Mornings include uplifting philosophical teachings and strong alignment practice with a heart theme, followed by discussion, instruction, and practicum. Afternoons include a learning laboratory and practice teaching in a safe and supportive community. Bring your teaching to a higher level of excellence, using themes to speak to the heart of your students.

Note Tuition includes the Art of Teaching Yoga With a Theme Manual.
