Teaching Skills – YogaBloom Teachers uphold the sincerest tradition of this noble and honourable profession. Our teachers uphold the skills necessary to be a creative, compassionate and collaborative guide.
The word “mentor” usually means a “wise and trusted guide”. In Greek mythology, Mentor Μέντωρ was a friend of Odysseus, and when Odysseus went to the Trojan War he entrusted Mentor with his son, Telemachus. Mentor’s wise counsel, teaching, parental concern and protection was integral to Telemachus’s education and development.
Mentoring is a way of taking deeper inquiry into the vast ocean of knowledge within the values, beliefs, and practices of Yoga. This deeper foundation of knowledge can translate into a more productive, efficient, and effective teacher. Formal mentoring is deliberate pairing of protégé and mentor to develop skills and competencies. It provides a flexible structure within a model that is conducive to learning and better able to assist in preparing the practitioner to teach or go deeper into the practice.
This programme is set up as a Mentor environment between student and teacher. To mentor a student is to take the time to guide learning to a path that takes you beyond simply being a provider of information. It is the time to guide you towards educating and inspiring yourself and your students. Along with that, you need to understand how to manage a business, communicate and strategise with peers, contractors and employers, and manage personal practice and teaching time. There are ways to do this successfully, and this programme is structured to give you those skills.
Teacher trainees will learn more than just teach Asana postures. You will learn how to structure and manage class schedules, studio business, develop class themes and curriculum, work with emotional and physical injuries in students and keep boundaries, be a mentor and role model, and inspire and motivate students.
The trainees must assume role of one who is committed to learning, who will take responsibility for personal development, and work diligently and independently. The trainee role includes making best use of current skills and competencies,self- assessing preference and needs, and work to achieve ways to reach goals. The assessments must commit to follow through on actions, including readdressing things that don’t appear to work well
This takes a lot of time with their mentor beyond just teaching lessons. There will be additional online hours to ensure you can understand all information that goes with teaching.
We will focus on
- questions that encourage self-reflection, critical thinking, and dialogue
- Helping others in service and cooperative learning
- Curriculum planning and choices in learning experiences
- Participatory evaluation strategies
- Creating standards and code of ethics
