Description

By considering how teachers can maintain appropriate boundaries with students, create truly inclusive classes, and deal with common obstacles and ethical issues, this guide explores the reality of teaching yoga day-to-day and helps teachers avoid burnout.

With reflective and experiential exercises throughout, the book will help even experienced teachers to amplify their understanding of what it means to hold rich and meaningful classes by creating different lenses through which they can view distinct situations. The intention is to invite, offer possibilities, suggest and signpost, without prohibiting or setting defined boundaries.

Emphasising the need for yoga teachers to know about more than alignment and sequencing, The Yoga Teacher Mentor accompanies the reader through the rich, complex and rewarding process of teaching yoga.
