The Game Changers
Advanced Teaching Skills For All Styles of Yoga
50 hours, Yoga Alliance CET
May 9-15, 2016 (To be confirmed)
Learn how to become an extraordinary Yoga teacher by stepping out of your comfort zone.
‘The Game Changers’ is a continued education Yoga teacher training for teachers already certified with 200 hours, all styles of Yoga.
Prepare for a concentrated dose of new insights, fresh ideas and useful skills, which will prove both enlightening and uncomfortable.
The new perspectives which you will come upon during The Game Changers program may catch you slightly off-guard as you realize that your teaching to-date may have been:
> unknowingly filled with bad habits
> based on semiconscious, ‘accidental’ communication methods
> uniform, in your traditional approach to teaching Yoga (same style of teaching as everyone else’s)
However, do not worry! We know that this can be discomforting at first. Tomasz has found his own teaching voice, he has helped other teachers find their voice—and now—you will find your teaching voice, too! Join us with confidence.

The goal of a good Yoga course design is for the learners to emerge from the learning experience with new or better capabilities, which can be taken to the ‘real world’ of teaching Yoga classes. If you are on a journey from novice to expert, those 7 days will take you much further along the path.

Firstly, I think your Advanced TT has made a huge difference to my teaching in several ways. Most importantly, I am enjoying teaching more than ever before, and yes, my class numbers have grown, too. I find that I am more “myself” and I allow my personality and style to shape how I teach.
