Sanctuary: Weekly online support group for Yoga Teachers.
Starting Wednesday 23rd September
Pay by donation
This weekly session is aimed at creating a safe, held and sacred space, giving Yoga Teachers time together, to share personal and professional issues that are arising from their teaching. It is a space for professional support, but also self-reflection. A space to be heard, to experience community, to listen, to learn from and be inspired and touched by each other. This is community, Sangha.
Hellos and introductions
Centering meditation to begin the session
Sharing circle (space to share what is in your heart, your mind, your body). I offer a question for reflection if needed, or you can share whatever is needing to be heard on that day. There is no obligation to speak. I often find listening is just as rewarding as being listened to.
Closing thank yous and goodbyes
How to take part:
To book in please send an email to me email@example.com.
I'll send you an email with zoom link and password.
Who is it for?
Yoga teachers from all backgrounds, all types of training and lineage, or non-lineage, all levels of experience.
It will be a drop in session to begin with, but may become a closed group in time, if that feels like it would serve people best.
What is informing this work?
To hold space for this group, i will be drawing on my work as a Yoga Teacher and Movement educator since 2001. I am also a fully qualified, practicing Yoga Therapist, working as a student supervisor for Yoga Campus, London's Yoga Therapy training. I have worked as a Yoga Therapy advisor for the Yoga Mandala Project that brings trauma sensitive yoga to refugees and runs TSY trainings. I've been part of many groups in the past 25 years, as a participant, facilitator and project manager, including women's groups, community projects, the West Cork Yoga Festival and the board of trustees for An Sanctoir, a nature reserve and holistic centre in West Cork, which all means that you'll be in very safe and experienced hands.
