HOW DOES TRIBAL & YOGA BC ENABLE YOU TO BECOME A GREAT YOGA TEACHER?

When you experience an inspiring teacher, that experience might be the reason for pursing becoming a yoga teacher.  A Great teacher can impact students and in ways most don't think of. What is it that makes that yoga teacher different from all the rest?

Our Teachers are world class Yoga Teachers working from an authentic vision to awaken the world to their higher potential awakened quality.

That universal quality comes through nurturing presence. When we are truly present, we radiate the true essence of  our being. Perhaps what your favorite yoga teacher radiates is wisdom, or perhaps it is strength, humility, joy or pure harmony. It doesn't matter how we qualify these attributes. It resonates with our experience on the mat and leaves us feeling wiser, stronger, more peaceful, more joyful, and more cared for. Often, we may feel that we don't know how to find our own gift of presence, or how to share it with others. But at Yoga BC, we believe that inside of you there is an inner capacity to do just that. One of the mantras of the Yoga BC Teacher Training, is to guide you to unveil your true authentic presence as a unique teacher and Spiriitual Master of your own LIFE. More on that below.

Tribal & Yoga BC's curriculum will offer simple, yet profound, steps to realize that you have an amazing gift to be shared inside of you, and that gift can guide your intuition as a Yoga Teacher! Yoga BC's Yoga Teacher Training should truly inspire you, open your heart, and guide you deeper into your being, as well as well as empower you to reach the world.

 

TRIBAL YOGA TRAINING PRINCIPLES

These six principles are part of the "Yoga BC Teacher Training Experience" that will assist you to become the yoga teacher you want to be.

  • 1. Teaching Confidence: You will start to practice teaching on the 2nd day, and teach daily throughout the training. We have found that, while it is of importance, gathering information about, or even experiencing, yoga is not enough to learn how to impart the wisdom of this ancient practice. Through teaching, and receiving immediate personal feedback, you will become more confident; confidence allows you to relax and let your gifts come through.

  • 2. Inner Alignment and hands-on-assists: At Tribal Yoga BC, we value hands on assists and working from the spine outward.Creating the safest class in the most supportive way.

  • 3. Shante Ishta / Utilizing the wisdom of your heart: At Tribal Yoga BC you will learn to access wisdom from the heart instead of just from brain memory. Leading a class from your heart happens naturally through presence. This sets the fluctuating mind at ease, and allows the heart shine through your presence, giving your students a unique and personal touch.

  • 4. An open style and a set flow: At Tribal  & Yoga BC, you will learn an open style of Yoga, which allows you to choose what, and how, you want to teach in the future. You will get all the tools you need to create a multi style fun and challenging yoga class. To help you build your confidence as a beginner teacher, one part of the teacher training consists of learning a set flow. That sequence is a tool you can choose to use in for future classes, or expand from as you progress.

  • 5. Authenticity: Developing compassion for yourself.Building confidence through our Self Mastery portion of your training. Integrating growth into everything you do as your Teacher Training progresses.

  • 6. Teach from your Truth: At Tribal  we give you the foundations necessary, but also work to unveil the authentic Teacher found within you. This way you learn to teach from your inner Guru, which you can tap into for the rest of your life. When we learn to teach from our own truth, we truly become a GREAT TEACHER.
