Breathe New Life into Your Yoga Classes with Theming • Online (Zoom) Workshop
with Beth Rutty [ 2 Hours ]

Date: TBD• 6:30 - 8:30 pm

Investment: $55 (tax in)

Suitable for: any yoga teacher who would like to explore how to theme with ease and spice up class sequencing

Yoga classes can be so challenging to plan and sequence. Either we run out of ideas and repeat the same basic class over and over again or we spend time going to classes and workshops (in person or online) to get ‘new’ ideas.  
To breathe new life into your yoga classes, theming can be a beautiful answer. Theming at its best, is when we take our own experiences, everything from small to big, and look beneath the surface of it for the deeper value of the experience. Perfect opportunities to bring philosophy into your classes in a way that makes sense to our students and how they can relate it to their yoga practice and their life.

Let Beth take you through the steps to bring new life to your classes. 

You will learn:

  • how to cultivate a storyteller’s eyesight - sometimes seeing the mundane as sublime

  • how to share an experience in a brief and powerful way

  • how to take that experience - no matter how small or big and find a ‘golden nugget’ to build a class on

  • how to sequence with your theme in mind

  • how to thread the theme through the whole class (not just use it at the beginning and end)

Join Beth for this thought-provoking workshop and see how a theme can open up a whole new world of teaching for you and whole new experience for your students.
