Hello yogi’s looking for a potential yoga teacher training…
I’ll explain a little about our innovative approach to learning Yoga:
This course is not about churning out perfect gurus. It’s not about knowing everything, doing perfect instagrammable asana or appearing more enlightened than others. This course is not about prescribing, labelling or compartmentalizing what a yoga teacher should look or sound like. This course is about getting to know the best teacher inside of you. Find your own voice, find the truth in your heart and learn to teach from that place.
Over 24 days Kerry and I are opening up the delicious potentiality that teaching yoga invites for your experimentation, your deep dive into the honest vulnerable parts of you, your process, and your subjective experience. Our intention is to allow for rhizomatic learning: open to each individual’s learning preferences and subjective process of responding to, and absorbing information.
Rhizomatic learning refers to understanding as interconnected resonances and responses. The metaphor compares this kind of knowing to the interconnected weavings of a plant as it sends forth roots and shoots as it grows through the earth in no structured order or controlled form (see link for clear explanation and overview of rhizomatic learning davecormier.com/edblog/2011/11/05/rhizomatic-learning-why-learn/). This spirit of intuitive, left-brain consciousness, anti-linear, practice as learning approach is in alignment with ground breaking developments in education (Practice as Research in tertiary education and Child-centred philosophy in primary and secondary education – check out the Green School’s philosophy at thegreenschool.co.za/developmental-harmony/).
We are validating the subjective voice; your voice, your perspective, your view of the world. We will practice listening without projecting or defending, being vulnerable, being okay with not being okay, connecting with ourselves and our responses, surrender, holding space while we learn with each other and from each other.
The pre-requisites for this course are:
- An interest in yoga or embodied practice
- A hunger to learn and experience
- A curiosity about yourself and how you relate to others
- An awareness that a yoga lifestyle is a life long journey of learning; that your own exploration does not end on the last day of this course
If this blurb resonates with you in your heart, this is the course for you. We welcome you to this out-setting, this stepping-forth with open arms and heart.
