Take the Lid Off Your Teaching or Get Started Assisting Yoga!

Are you craving a deeper understanding of the dynamics of your yoga practice? Are you interested in giving back to your yoga community as an in-class assistant? Are you a teacher looking for powerful coaching to take the lid off your teaching?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Assistant & Teacher Development Program is the perfect fit! The intensive six-week program will empower you with tools and coaching to become a powerful teaching assistant and/or teacher. The program is designed for those interested in assisting or teaching, as well as new teachers who desire the confidence and experience to provide powerful hands-on assisting and lead a class that makes a difference.

You will have opportunities to assist and to practice teaching. Teachers will receive feedback on all elements of your teaching, from assisting, to how to deepen your teaching of physical asana and layering in spirituality and empowerment.

Graduates are empowered to:

- Hone your practice through a deeper understanding of the dynamics of individual and group postures
– Become an assistant at Be Luminous Yoga
– Advance your teaching skills, ability to read students’ needs, and hands-on assisting

Participating in the Be Luminous Teacher Development program was the most empowering thing I’ve done for my teaching since my 200-hour training. Through this program you are able to delve deeper into what teaching means to you and where you can expand in your teaching practice. You’ll receive personal and meaningful feedback on your teaching, work on your teaching “voice” and discuss the finer and intricate points of teaching asana. Be prepared to be vulnerable- you will be asked to step out of your comfort zone and work in a space that feels scary but exciting. In these moments of fear and reluctance you will receive excellent support and guidance from the mentors that feels both encouraging and applicable. If you’re looking for a program that will empower you to move to the next level in your teaching, this is it!

My experience in the Be Luminous Teacher Mentorship was meaningful, challenging, and rewarding. Two elements of the mentorship that stand out for me were the diverse set of tools offered and generous sharing. Nicole Tsong and Michel Spruance helped me identify what was holding me back and offered tools and techniques to take my teaching to the next level. My growth was supported and challenged by both active in the moment coaching and resources to explore out of the studio. The open sharing of participants and mentors gave me space to compassionately be with and share my experience. The most significant shift I experienced in during the mentorship was an increased ability to read, create and hold space of a class. This skill allows me to see each and every student as she or he is and co-create an experience with them. You already have what will make you an exceptional teacher; you. This mentorship will help you notice when you are and aren’t in the moment and help you develop skills to come back to moment to be with your students.
