Teaching Yoga to Beginners with Hope Fyfield

Day Time Instructor Cost
Sun, November 5 3 pm - 6 pm Hope $65 ea ($180 for all 3)

Teaching yoga is challenging, rewarding and joyful. These feelings are magnified when the students are brand new, and the teacher's responsibility is equally magnified… Join us for a class designed to give you more confidence with the brand-new student, both with a whole class of beginners and with helping a new student join your existing class. A mix of participatory lecture and asana practice will provide you with the tools to joyfully and safely assist the new student in the first steps along a lifetime path to the many rewards of yoga.
