Art of Attention Teacher Enhancement: Tangerine, Brooklyn
October 15, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - October 16, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
This multi-faceted exploration of the practice of teaching yoga will engage you in a process of living into your heart. Set your path to your highest creativity in your teaching and in your life. This module is designed to amplify the love and confidence in your heart, your body and your work. Expect alignment-based Hatha teachings, movement practices, meditation, and contemplation.
“First, you have to master yourself, and then you will become teachers. A teacher is very open, a public park where anybody can walk in, so the teacher has to be very clean. Your conduct has to be crystal clear and you have to be absolutely transparent. Only then can you become a teacher.” -Yogi Bhajan
Please bring a one or a few select sacred objects (malas, murtis, stones, quotes, photographs) you wish to bring to our temporary altar for the duration of our training. You’ll take your item(s) back once the training is completed, charged up with the energy and wisdom you’ve gained.

Day II: On Design, Presence and Leadership
