Advanced Teacher Training: 300 hours
The Octopus Garden Advanced Teacher Training is designed to foster inspired teaching, rooted in technical excellence. This 300 hour training will shine light on often overlooked aspects of the teaching practice that can make a good class great, and a great class feel like pure magic. Over the course of four months, from April to July 2020, you will enhance and explore your capacity as a teacher. With an integrated, well-informed, and open perspective, we tie together the insights and wisdom of many different traditions to create a cohesive and innovative approach.
Our highly esteemed program is open to certified yoga instructors who are deeply committed to the craft of teaching and are ready to lead students with renewed creativity and confidence. Participants can expect to: deepen their self-awareness and capacity for accurate self-assessment; deconstruct poor teaching habits; move past teaching ruts and plateaus; and uncover authentic teaching voices that speak powerfully to students. The end goal? A renewed energy and purpose and a greater capacity to change lives.
