Continuing Education Courses for Yoga Teachers

If you are a yoga teacher in-training or already a teacher looking to add tools to your Teacher's Mat, consider joining us for our Educational Workshops.

​​Self-care & Teacher Development Workshop Take one day each month in the last quarter of 2020 to take care of yourself as a yoga teacher. Each month we will meet for 2 hours. You will be guided through a yoga practice and spend an hour working on a teaching goal. The goal is to give you a time and space to restore and fill your own cup as a yogi and teacher. These workshops will help you to work through your own teaching obstacles and give you time to focus on attainable teaching goals. You will participate in partner discussions/group discussions guided by Kate Shin, E-RYT 200 and YACEP. It is my hope that you are able to walk into 2021 having more tools for your self-care toolbox and to have practical and attainable visions and goals for yourself! 2020 has been an extremely challenging year for the world and sometimes it’s easy to get lost in it all. I’d love to share my teaching experience with you to help you set yourself up for success as a yoga teacher and community leader! After completing this course, you will receive a certificate that states you have completed 6 Continuing Education Hours that meets Yoga Alliance standards for Continuing Education.

Creative Sequencing Have you struggled with creating sequences that you are passionate about? Is it hit or miss when trying to come up with new sequences for your yoga classes? If you answered yes to either of these questions then this Creative Sequencing workshop is for you. 

Creative Sequencing is a three hour investment in strengthening your ability to hold the Seat of the Teacher in a way that both resonates with the spirits of your students and feeds your soul as a yoga teacher. It is time to take the energy of your classes to a higher vibration with creativity and intention. You can spark a light within your students and help them illuminate the inner parts of the heart with the energy that is cultivated by your sequencing. Take this workshop and give your students the excitement that will come from your inner creative! As a dancer, choreographer, yogi, stepper and lover of all things movement, Asia Vianna is the one to help you dive deeper into the creative mover within you! Sequencing is to yoga as choreography is to dance as songwriting is to music!
Course Objectives

  • Gain an understanding of the poses that you typically teach and explore how you usually sequence them.
  • Through improvisation and introspection, determine what elements you would like to add to your sequencing repertoire.
  • Learn or get a refresher on the questions to ask yourself, as you develop a new sequence.
  • Understand that approaching sequencing through your own creative lens will impact your ability to remain fresh and present in your teaching practice.
