The Language of Teaching Yoga with Melissa Carroll
Sunday, March 24th, 10am-12pm, $30
As a yoga teacher, one of the most powerful tools you have is your voice.
Could you use some fresh language to enliven your teaching?
Are you tired of using the same phrases to guide your students? How can you weave imagery, compelling cues, and poetry without sounding inauthentic?
In this workshop, you will learn:
~ The most powerful parts of speech to make your delivery clear, crisp, and evocative
~ Language and consciousness: which words do not register in the subconscious mind (and are therefore ineffective)
~ How to use cues that create a supportive, inclusive atmosphere and induce a positive state of mind in your students
~ The power of metaphor and imagery in teaching asana, pranayama, and meditation
Open to all yoga teachers and teachers in training.
