This unique offering "Teach with Confidence" is an advanced training program specifically designed for certified yoga teachers who have a desire to take their teaching to the next level, and to learn how to contribute - not only to their students’ physical practice, but also to the evolution of their whole being.

By joining us for our 10-day Teaching With Confidence program, you will have the opportunity to:

  • learn in an intimate group setting (12 trainees max) with one-on-one mentorship and guidance from some of the most authentic and experienced yoga teachers in the field.

  • teach a variety of students under the supervision of a dedicated mentor.

  • build on what you have already learned and experienced as a certified 200 hour yoga teacher; honing your teaching, language, and assessment skills.

  • participate in a wide-range of powerful discussions, learning experiences, and practices to develop into a more impactful yoga teacher and leader.

Maximum # of participants accepted into program: 12 (twelve)

Our commitment is to provide a unique development program which allows you to explore the art of teaching yoga.  Our aim is that, by the end of the training, you will feel empowered to inspire and activate change with purpose - both in yourself and in your students. This is the opportunity to build deeper connections which support and drive real transformation on and off the mat - propelling both yourself and your teaching to new levels of effectiveness. Our purpose is to provide you with an immersive invaluable teaching experience that will facilitate the teaching of yoga at its highest purpose - as a vehicle for personal growth and integrated evolution; making your teaching experience more powerful.

This program qualifies for 100 hours of continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance and can be used towards the Swastha Yoga International 500 hour yoga teacher training certification.

TRAINEES CAN EXPECT TO:

  • Participate in the training for an average of 12-14 hours per day.

  • Receive a clear understanding of, and experience in, teaching a form of yoga which focuses on integration and transformation on all levels of our Being.

  • Learn how to teach with intention; allowing for a new depth of connection with your students.

  • Participate in two daily yoga classes; one is for your personal practice and observation, the other is for you to assist or independently teach.

  • Deepen your abilities by teaching students from a variety of cultures and skill levels, while also being exposed to different types of yoga; allowing you to blend and cultivate your own personal style of teaching.

  • Work in small groups with a mentor up to 4 hours each day; covering in-depth topics of teaching and participating in personal growth exercises designed to help you connect with the genuine teacher within you. In these “classroom” sessions you will also receive feedback on your teaching and assigned written work to complete on your own time.

  • Join in on daily group sharing sessions, meditation sessions and journaling assignments.

  • Engage, learn, laugh, play and transform with us!

The program is intensive, yet we have designated time within the week to implement and digest what you have learned, complete self-study, go to the beach, explore, travel to a nearby beach tourist town, connect with community, and/or relax by the pool.
