Group Mentoring Session for Yoga Teachers - Reflective Practice & Developmental Insight
Reflective Practice is the foundation of professional development; it makes meaning from experience and transforms insights into practical strategies for personal growth and professional impact
Reflective Practice, what is it? Why is it essential as a Yoga Teacher? What issues do you struggle with as a Teacher? This is space for open and honest discussion about the challenges of being a Yoga Teacher - physically, mentally, emotionally & specific to YOU.
Reflective Practice & Supervision are compulsory in the professions of Medicine, Counselling & Therapy. This is a support system which safeguards both them as the Professional and their clients. It does not currently exist as a formal requirement of the Yoga Profession. This workshop aims to inform Yoga Teachers about the notion of 'best practice', to empower them to initiate their own relationship with reflective practice. This will help Teachers to meet personal & professional struggles with practical tools & to safeguard themselves and their students.
