Inspire Your Teaching, Empower Your Practice

You’ve completed your 200-hour teacher training, and you love teaching yoga. You feel like you have a basic grasp of alignment in your teaching.

But sometimes you my students really get what I’m trying to convey? How do I articulate the nuances of postures in clear language? Am I truly comfortable teaching advanced postures?

If this sounds like you, you’re ready to take your teaching to the next level in our Shapes and Flow Advanced Alignment Intensive.

Over 18 sessions amounting to 55 contact hours, you will learn to deliver skillful alignment cues and techniques for teaching challenging poses.
