Level 2 YTT – Expanding your voice with Keren & Jacq, Sept & Oct 2021

EXPANDING YOUR VOICE, 50 hours YTT, 24th-26th SEPTEMBEr AND 22ND-24TH OCTOBER 2021 (Hybrid or zoom only options available)

Join Keren Cooksey and Jacq St Pierre for a 50hr level two teacher training aimed at polishing your teaching skills, expanding your knowledge and giving you more confidence to craft well sequenced and rich yoga classes that go beyond the asana.

WEEKEND TIMINGS

Taught across two weekends – Friday afternoon 5-9pm (On zoom with Jacq from Austin Texas), Saturday and Sunday 10.30-1.30pm (with Keren in studio) and 2.30-6.30pm (US teaching)

WEEKEND ONE 24th-26th September

Add vibrancy to your teaching voice. So often our teaching voice can feel like we are mimicking our own teachers or we feel we are repeating the same cues and phrases over and over again. In the first weekend we will look at how to bring a little chaos and creativity into our language – we won’t lose our structure – but we will go deeper in how to connect to our students to help them feel safe, supported and hopefully inspired

  • Dharma talks
  • Advanced pranayama
  • Mudras and mantra
  • Language of teaching – trauma informed, embodied and creative voicing
  • Creating well rounded yoga classes that go beyond the physical practice

WEEKEND TWO

Add knowledge to your teaching voice. We add the sparkle to our voices so now let’s look at expanding our knowledge. Specifically how do we ensure our classes showcase smart sequencing from the moment we sit on the mat and work through the warm-up to unravelling the practice in the cool down in preparation for savasana

  • linking warm ups and cool downs to your peak
  • Incorporating more advanced poses into your class smartly
  • Exploring different forms of ‘challenge’
  • Practice labs

Taught over two weeks and with homework, this course will give you 50hrs CPD for YA and if you have undertaken other level 2 trainings with FYS, this will count towards your 300hr certificate. Please note this training can be done totally by zoom (recordings available) or hybrid with option to be in person with Keren for her sessions

You must have completed a 200hr course to apply for this training.

Cost £395 early bird by 1st July or £435 by payments plan or after 1st July. Contact us for more information or to apply
