As a Registered Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals – this accreditation endorses me to teach both workshops and vocational teacher training courses, as well as the teaching of Foundation Teacher Training courses. This means that my courses and workshops have met stringent requirements and are of the highest quality and standard. These courses are for teachers, trainee teachers, students wishing to become teachers and for those who wish to significantly deepen their knowledge in order to safely practice or teach informed and effective Hatha yoga.
CPD Teacher training weekend - Mastering the art of hands on assists and adjustments - new dates coming soon
Yoga teacher mentoring 121 or group sessions
With over 18 years of teaching experience, I have taught and mentored many students, including both new as well as established teachers.
To encourage continuing professional development, I can offer guidance to trainee Yoga Teachers or qualified Yoga Teachers who feel that they would like more intimate inspiration or advice with all aspects of teaching yoga. These sessions can encourage you to develop your teaching skills and knowledge.
I offer mentoring as a private one to one service, or you may prefer to share the time and cost with another colleague, or you could gather together your own small personal group (maximum 4 people). Theses sessions usually take place in my fully equipped Log Cabin Studio, Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes. You may choose any topics of your choice, I’ve given some examples below. Please do contact me to discuss further, I am very approachable.
My intention is to support as well as motivate you so that you feel comfortable, authentic and self assured when taking your unique presence as ‘The Seat of the Teacher’
£50 per hour for a personal session
6 week course – £270
Group sessions would be £50 plus an extra £10 each per hour (so 2 people would be £70 and 4 people would be £90)
The maximum number for a group session in my cabin is 4, however for larger groups, I can hire a local studio.
These can be absolutely anything that you feel is relevant for your yoga teaching journey in order to grow and build your business. Sometimes teachers come to me with lists and we work through them, see below for examples of topics I have covered;
- How to blend anatomy and alignment in to classes whilst teaching.
- Theming – How to select a philosophical theme and cleverly weave it into your class.
- Pranayama teaching techniques
- Meditation teaching techniques
- Advanced asana practice and how to teach it.
- Adjustments – hands on and verbal
- Using props in your classes
- Expand your creativity
- Sequencing intuitively.
- Teaching private one to one clients
- Teaching and organising workshops
- Injury – rehabilitation and prevention
- The therapeutic approach to yoga
- Writing newsletters/ blogs
- Mastering social media
- Creating your own website
- Teaching and organising Retreats.
- Meeting your challenges head on
*Yoga Alliance CPD points will be awarded on each of these sessions, one hour is equivalent to one CPD point
I am now a fully fledged yoga teacher and teaching regular classes myself. The words “thank you” seem inadequate to express my gratitude towards Brigitte, I can’t thank her enough for her support whilst I was studying on my teacher training course. Towards the end of the course, I was feeling very overwhelmed and had my final practical and theory exams looming. At the time, I had other stuff going on in my life and the course was stressing me out so much that I was seriously considering calling it a day. Then by chance, I was attending a class with another teacher and told her about my dilemma, she recommended Brigitte for mentoring sessions. I didn’t look back, it was a complete game changer, Brigitte welcomed me in to her cabin studio space like an old friend, she spent time with me on the mat and instilled confidence back in to me. She helped break things down more so that I understood when class planning, she helped me find my voice and reassured me that I was capable. It was through her belief in me, that I was able to elevate my teaching knowledge and ability to a new level and finally believe in myself. I not only passed my final assessment with flying colours but I was also highly praised for its content. – Annie
Thank you Brigitte for supporting me in my journey to becoming a yoga teacher. The 121 mentoring sessions really helped cement and bring to life the learnings from my course. Brigitte encourages you to bring your ideas to the table, then works with you to explore your ideas building around the theme as well as offering comments and suggestions. This allowed me to question my thought processes, yet gave me the space to find my own voice and style of teaching. – Melissa
I have been teaching for 2 years, however, every now and then I find that I doubt myself, or I am in need of inspiration or motivation. Brigitte has so much valuable wisdom to share, it doesn’t matter what I ask, she seems knows the answer or guides me in a way whereby I find the answer myself. In fact I always bring a list and we work our way down it, then before I know it, my passion for teaching is reignited. I come away restored and believing in myself again, I highly recommend Brigitte for both private mentoring and advanced teacher training courses, she is a really genuine person and has taught me loads, she also gives so much of her own time. – Deb
