Need a lesson?
I have a range of excellently designed lessons in my back pocket. Tried and tested in the classroom. All you have to do is show up and teach.
This material has been specifically designed for yoga teacher training programs and is perfect to incorporate in a 200-hour or as continuing education.
Mix and match modules give you flexibility you need to deliver content when you want:
- Schedule and sprinkle these lessons through your program – rather than cramming it all into one weekend when your expert is available.
- No more outsourcing to experts who come and teach in chunks; you are the expert!
- This ability to offer lessons in smaller chunks is essential for topics such as anatomy, where the students need to parse the information out in order to apply it effectively to their understanding.
“I cannot recommend Rachel enough as a resource for yoga schools and trainers who are looking for support in creating their curriculum.” – Natalie Rousseau, Living Yoga
