Guided Zen Restorative Yoga Teacher Training 

The School of Embodied Relaxation

I encourage my yoga-teacher students to become more trusting of their intuition, their experience and what is directly in front of them- the students. We will practice "reading the body" and learning the subtle cues constantly delivered from the students.

I teach from a "learning together" collaborative style of instruction. There is room and space for discovery, and that is part of what yoga is, discovering. Essentially, I teach what I know, and what I've actually experienced in my own body not what I don't. I ask the same of my students. Engaging with the world rather than a set of facts that you learned second-hand. You will ground more deeply in your own style and learn to refine and deepen your own way, not my style, or my way (although you are welcome to take from mine what suits you). I encourage my students to tap into their own knowing by creating, discovering and uncovering  your pedagogical outlet, and authentic voice.
