compassionate teaching : introduction to inclusive and trauma-informed practices

Compassionate Teaching - An Introduction to Inclusive and Trauma-Informed Practices

A workshop for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainees.

Yoga can have a profound impact on practitioners from all backgrounds and walks of life.

Whilst popular media tends to convey the gymnastic potentials of asana practice, for many people the reason that they step onto a yoga mat is much more subtle and personal.

As such, regardless of whether you are teaching public classes or specialise in more sensitive practices, skills in compassionate instruction will strengthen your capacity as a teacher.

In this practical, hands-on workshop, we will cover what it means to approach teaching from an inclusive mindset, and why this is an important skill-set for professionals in the sector.

We will learn how language, instructions, class planning and theming can have the potential to either include or exclude your students, and discover practical techniques for creating a learning environment that is safe, professional and welcoming to all.

Come dressed for practice, with your yoga mat and with a notepad and pen.

Date: Sunday October 29th @ AYA Prahran
Time: 12pm - 2.30pm
