Designing the Experience
Oct. 4-6, 2019
Teachers: Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash
What makes a great yoga teacher? What makes a great class? Develop your voice and cultivate existing skills to structure a yoga class that creates the complete experience.
- structuring a yoga class by building postural arcs and valleys
- developing a teacher/class relationship and teacher/student relationship
- how to hold space, creating a safe, judgment free environment for healing and transformation
- methods and tools to find personal inspiration and then share that with the class
Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash
Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.
