 Altruism • Artistry • Refinement

In this advanced teacher training, Tara Glazier will focus on refining the teacher’s authentic voice and cultivating subtlety through experience. Using the Abhaya Method as a guide, teachers learn how to be more present, step back, create space, and teach to what is needed depending on who is in front of them.  This subtle approach to teaching and observation is a unique and advanced skill that empowers students and brings life back into systemized yoga classes.

Experienced teachers refine their authentic voice, create space, and teach to what is needed. The integration of the Subtle Body and physical practices within the sequence and theme structure, create both clarity and depth. Sharpening the observation skills and learning how to see individual patterns, offers the techniques to teach various levels, privates, therapeutic groups, and special needs groups with clarity, comfort, and professionalism.

Program includes: Refined Teaching Skills, Subtle Body/ Energetics and Hands on Adjustments, Advanced Therapeutics, Applied Anatomy, Applied Ayurveda and Nutritional Cooking Classes, Applied Non-Dual Philosophy, Yoga Nidra Teacher Training, Mini Pre-Natal Teacher Training, Teaching Meditation/ Pranayama, and Subtle Body Practices.

There will be three primary areas of focus-

Refined Teaching Skills and Mentoring:

The teaching skills portion takes place on chosen Sundays and includes topics such as enhancing and clarifying verbal instruction through what is seen through honing observation skills, hands on adjustments, subtle body understanding and therapeutics, advanced theme coding and refining the voice. The Wednesday portion will focus on practicing these skills in a small mentored group. This is a rare opportunity to teach and receive skillful feedback. These groups will focus on advancing your teaching and stepping into your full potential as an authentic teacher.
