Curriculum

To be a great teacher you don’t need a flexible body with a deep practice.

Heart Of YogaWhat you need is what I call an “ideal practice”. One that has strong foundations, something you can base your teaching on. It doesn’t actually matter if you’re ‘stiff as a board’.

Teaching is a totally DIFFERENT SKILL to practising. I am going to teach you how having a strong practice will greatly enhance your skill of teaching.

Teaching is about giving your gift of presence to your students. Reciting a script does not allow you to do this. At Hot Yoga Doctor Pro I will teach you my Precision Practice Techniques. You will experience the gross and subtle changes in your own practice. With that foundation I will teach you the SKILL of teaching.

You will learn HOW to teach these techniques to ALL your students – first timers, beginners, regulars and experienced.

 

You will be mentored every step of the way

Here are some of the ways you will benefit from your time with us at Hot Yoga Doctor Pro:
