The Art of Teaching – Full Course

The Art of Teaching is a 50-hour continuing education program designed for yoga teachers who want to stay on the path of learning and set their classes apart. Each module covers a topic that is key for teachers dedicated to honing their craft, and often not covered in 200-hour trainings. 

Modules are delivered once each month over five months. Complete the full program to earn 50 Continuing Education Credits, or purchase modules individually, choosing the topics that will best amplify your own teaching. You’ll find details of the different modules and booking options at the bottom of this page.

Julie brings with her over 20 years of teaching experience and a passion for helping teachers grow. The knowledge and wisdom you will receive on the key topics covered will help you to develop the critical skills needed to set your teaching apart in an increasingly crowded industry.

Equally important, you’ll connect with other teachers, grow your knowledge and deepen your impact.

Due to the ongoing nature of COVID, please note that as the situation requires, modules may be either rescheduled or moved online.
