This program prepares you to build on previous knowledge and offers the opportunity to explore advanced theory and practice as safe, knowledgeable, and professional practitioners. Its aim is to hone the skills of teachers to prepare you for leadership in our profession. The yoga educator is charged with teaching a diverse body of students, so I developed this curriculum with guidance from IAYT 800Hr Yoga Therapy curricular guidelines.
Almost all leading university programs include distance-learning components in their curriculum. In order for students to gain the experience required during online coursework, they must be motivated and adept at sourcing. This reflects dedication, communication and friendly relations with others; which are highly sought after attributes in yoga. Distance learning programs do not offer clinical preceptors, which means students must source their learning, requiring skills in research, application, out-of-the-box thinking and persuasion.
Online programs draw students across the nation and around the world, and teachers attending these classes benefit from insights presented by peers who can expand discussions and understanding past what is found in a specific geographic locale. This access to learning becomes a collaboration which contributes to an incredible wealth of knowledge to exchange information and ideas with professionals from around the globe.
The concept of mentoring has application in every forum of learning, and an effective mentoring relationship is characterized by mutual respect, trust, understanding, and empathy. Since you are in different time zones, I want to be able to offer the group conference calls at a time that most can meet. We can come to agreement on a schedule that works for you all. Additionally, each of you will have 3 hours of one to one time with me on video conference calls.
