"Because that's the way it's always been done" is a terrible reason to keep doing something the same way.
As is, "but that's how everyone else does it."
For about a month now, I've had this persistent nudge to change the format of the current "Teacher Training."
Yes, I've trained many teachers and will continue to do so in the upcoming program this fall.
But what if you don't want to be a teacher? What if you just want that level of education, support, commitment and, frankly, fun?
In the past, I've tried describing Teacher Training as Life Training (as many past students have called it). I make the language as welcoming and permissive as I can to those who don't want to teach. This program is for everyone.
But why should they have to pay the same amount and have the same intensive homework and requirements? I created a yearlong program (The Daily Craft) with the intention of giving a similar opportunity to non-teachers. But nothing is like the 5 month immersion of TT.
So...the persistent nudge was, how can I make this available to people who don't want to teach?
Sometimes the answer is obvious, in plain view, just behind the veil of but this isn't how it's done.
I'm so pleased to announce a rename and restructure to the Yoga education program I'm offering.
It's called Yoga School. There are two tracks: Personal and Professional.
