CONTINUING EDUCATION

I am working on the most optimal way to bring workshops and trainings to you while we are moving out of a COVID 19 state.
Please stay tuned for details as they unfold by signing up for my YOGA TEACHER Newsletter here.
Yoga Teacher Continuing Education, Mentorship & Support

Are you a yoga teacher, new or experienced, but are looking to grow you confidence and skills set?

Look no further as it is my passion to teach, mentor and support yoga teachers to grow their knowledge, skills and confidence so they can attract, inspire and retain students. These offerings are to serve you, as a yoga teacher to embrace and offer your unique gifts through the practices of yoga (asana, meditation, philosophy & pranayama).

4 Ways to Participate:

Reasons to be mentored:

You are a yoga teacher:

  • who hasn't found your teaching voice yet

  • who would like to be more confident

  • who is looking to deepen, refine and grow your teaching skill set including:

    • languaging​

    • sequencing

    • theming

    • the 'marriage' anatomy & asana

    • how to 'see' your students better

    • how to modify poses to meet your students' needs

  • who wants to take ​your business to a new level and needs some marketing assistance

  • who wants to grow your own personal asana, pranayama or meditation practice

  • who has an injury or persistent issue and would like to heal through the practices of yoga

  • needs an ear to listen to your challenges and is seeking clarity through conversation and yoga philosophy

 
1:1 MENTORSHIP

The concept of mentorship has been around a long time, making its first appearance in Homer's poem The Odyssey (written around 800 BCE). Mentor was a friend of Odysseus. When Odysseus left to fight in the Trojan War he placed Mentor in charge of being his son's teacher and advisor.

I have been mentoring Yoga Teachers for many years, listening to their heart's desires and helping them along the way to move in a direction that allows them to offer their heart-felt gifts in the most fulfilling way.

 

As with every other career path, being a Yoga Teacher can have its challenges navigating your unique path. It is easy to get caught up in what you think you're 'supposed' to do, rather than what will serve you and your students in the highest.

You heard the calling to be a Yoga Teacher, now where do you want to go?

 

"I have had several opportunities to travel to Beth Rutty’s studio and learn from her and other amazing guest teachers! Her lovely studio is tucked away at the top of the escarpment with a beautiful view! Her studio is quiet, clean & welcoming and has every prop needed for class. I felt as if I was on retreat!

 

As a host, Beth is genuine, caring and welcoming. As a teacher, she is considerate, knowledgeable and has so much to share. Take one of her classes and experience for yourself! This place is so special, I look forward to visiting again to expand my yoga knowledge with this lovely teacher! 

Thank you, Beth, for sharing your hospitality, your yoga knowledge and your beautiful studio! You are a gem!"

YOGA CLASSES

 

I have 3 combo online/in-person classes at the moment that are open to all yoga teachers. The 3 classes I currently offer are all alignment-based Hatha Yoga with 3 different focuses:

 

  • All Levels 

  • Gentle

  • Teacher's Practice

 

Over the years I have had the pleasure of teaching many yoga teachers within my 'regular' classes. Yoga Teachers find my classes a great resource for teaching different groups of people with varying stages of awareness and movement capability. In the Teacher's Practice I offer a class that is educational, potentially physically challenging and fun. I always encourage the asking of questions as they often spark amazing discussions, just as we used to have in Yoga Teacher Training.

"As a student of Yoga as well as a Yoga Teacher, what I really love about your teaching Beth, is that you really help us to focus on purpose or the effect of the poses that we’re aiming for rather than just the verbiage of what we’ve been told. I love the way you teach about cause and effect vs only one right way to approach poses."
