Mastermind SF

February 22nd-24th, 2019

Mastermind: verb to plan, control, direct, be in charge of, run, conduct, organize, arrange, preside over, orchestrate, stage-manage, engineer, manage, coordinate together in community. Have you been teaching for a while now, but feel like there could be…more? Come together with other like-minded teachers so we can work together to brainstorm ways and methods we can more out of our teaching to offer to our students. Join me and Brett Larkin for a weekend of refining your current teaching, add skills to your teaching tool box, and how to build up your brand. Our weekend will be broken down into three sections:

  • Sequencing, Advanced Anatomy & Finding Your Voice (2/22/19, 11am-6pm)
    • Anatomy and asana tune-up, creating sequences unique to your brand, language mastery, and hands-on adjustments
  • Body Reading, The Fascia & Hands-On Assists (2/23/19, 9am-6pm)
    • Understanding the myofascial matrix, reading bodies, bodies, and more bodies: partner workshop, and how to fuse yoga and massage together through myofascial assists
  • Building Your Yoga Business (2/24/19, 9am-6pm)
    • Building your brand and following: leveraging studios, festivals, building your image as a yoga teacher and creating an online presence and create an action plan for your business.

  This intensive will leave you with a better sense of how to bring more to your classes, understand the anatomy and body more, and effectively market yourself and your brand. You will also receive personalized feedback from the both of us to take away. This course qualifies for 20 continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.
