As yoga teachers, it is important that we find the time and space to cultivate inspiration for our personal practice as well as our teaching. We may need to take a step back and become a student again to gain a fresh perspective on our teaching, or find ways to deepen our practice so that it keeps us connected to our spiritual longings and fulfillment.

Join Shari Friedrichsen for this weekend retreat and find inspiration in new and creative techniques to hone your awareness of yourself and your students. Learn to bring the philosophy of yoga and the Yoga Sutra to life in a meaningful and practical way, both in the classroom and in the outside world. Work with other teachers and peers, offering and receiving support.

We’ll explore how our personal practice helps us blossom authentically, and can serve as a rich source of inspiration for our teaching. We’ll look at ways to keep our students inspired and excited about starting or expanding their own personal practice.
