Step out of your comfort zone

Learn how to become an extraordinary Yoga teacher by stepping out of your comfort zone.

Continued education

‘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
> semiconscious, ‘accidental’ communication methods
> uniform, in a 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.

Requirements

All Participants must be drug-free non-smokers. If you smoke cigarettes and/or use drugs, we ask you to stop for the duration of the program.

Injuries are okay.

The Course is appropriate for new Yoga teachers, as it will cover important material, usually not addressed in 200-hour (level one) courses. An official certificate of your previous training does not need to be presented.

The Course is also very suitable for experienced teachers, as Tomasz and Kiki facilitate an incredibly rewarding group learning, where each participant learns not only from the facilitators, but also from other participants in the group.

Please note: this course is NOT a level one certification, where you would learn to teach a Yoga class.

Tuition
You will not officially be enrolled until we receive your payment in full. The tuition is not refundable.

Please note: should an emergency arise after you paid and you cannot attend the course, your tuition payment may be transferred toward a future course solely at Tomasz’s discretion.

Applications
All applications will be reviewed by Tomasz and Kiki. Your personal information submitted will not be shared with any third party. Submitting your application shows you have read and agree to all the requirements (listed on this page) for the Course.

Successful learning
Tomasz and Kiki believe that the responsibility for the Course’s success needs to be shared. The success of the program depends on how well we will work together and even more importantly, on your willingness to be accountable for your own learning. Please think through how you will make sure that you get what you need from the Course!

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.
