Teaching yoga can be rewarding and exhilarating. But it can also be terrifying and frustrating. With so many yoga teachers on the market, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.
A 200-hour teacher training gives you the basics of teaching yoga, but it doesn’t teach you how to connect with students on an individual level.
That’s why I”m offering Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers. In this program, through the lens of Ayurveda, you’ll learn how to understand individual differences and needs and to apply this to your yoga teaching.
I’m Jessica Blanchard, and I”m not afraid to say that becoming a deeply skilled yoga teacher takes time, practice, and study.
We certainly don’t lack the opportunity to study -- but what’s actually effective for building your skills?
There are intensives, programs, and more teacher trainings, but do they really help you to move forward as a yoga teacher?
In my Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers, you’ll learn how to apply Ayurvedic principles to your yoga classes. Then you’ll get tons of practice, so you understand exactly how to tweak your classes for individual needs and the seasons.
You’re students see you as a knowledgeable guide, you know how to give simple advice for the season. You’re confident because you know that you have a wealth of valuable information to offer your students.
For more than thirteen years I’ve helped people overcome health issues with Ayurveda. I’ve taught yoga for more than fifteen years. Now I’m putting together these two bodies of knowledge to help you become a deeply skilled yoga teacher, and also a healthier person.
I believe that yoga and ayurveda have the power to transform the health and happiness of our world, but we need ambassadors to make this happen -- and that’s where this program comes in.
Over three months you’ll learn the foundations of Ayurveda, how to apply it to yoga teaching, and how to tweak your diet so you get healthier and happier too.
We’ll start with a weekend retreat where we’ll dive into the foundations of Ayurveda. After that we’ll meet weekly to cover specific topics.
Foundations of Ayurveda Retreat: September 14-16 2019.
We'll kick off with a retreat (within driving distance of New Orleans), so we can get to know one another and spend the weekend diving into Ayurveda so you get a firm foundation.
September 23 - November 25th

40 Hours of Instruction including the retreat, weekly sessions, and case studies.
Expect some extra time outside of class learning and applying ayurveda to your life!
