Sanctuary; Weekly online support group for Yoga Teachers.
Starting Wednesday 23rd September at 11-12.30am through Zoom.
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.
I will guide a centering practice to begin the session, then open space for a talking circle (space to share what is in your heart, your mind, your body), and then close with a Yoga Nidra.
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.
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 and will be offering this space on a donations basis.
Who is it for?
Yoga teachers from all backgrounds, all types of training and lineage, or non-lineage, all levels of experience.
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.
