Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers

We know the journey to being a great teacher doesn’t end after your 200 hour teacher training. We at Samudra are committed to providing opportunities for personal development, growth, and for honing your teacher voice. The below offerings all qualify for CEUS through yoga alliance and are designed to help you explore, expand, and enrich your journey on the teaching path. 

Teaching Transformational Classes – A Weekend Intensive – Saturday June 1st, 11-4, Sunday June 2nd 10-3

Fine tune your teaching voice; learn how to structure and lead yoga classes that feel authentic, inspiring and FUN! For new AND experienced teachers – after this two day workshop, you will walk away with skills you can action immediately in your next class to make you feel stronger and more authentic as a teacher.
 
Do you remember the last yoga instructor who completely blew you away? Where you left their class feeling affirmed, empowered, and INSPIRED? It’s not magic. And it’s something you can learn. Because high-impact yoga teachers have mastered 3 things:
 
  • Cuing – how to use your own language and experience, and when to use more vs. less language, to get your students into and out of poses. Use language authentic to you and from your own experience to offer your students a one of a kind class experience
  • Theming – What leaves a lasting impression on students goes much beyond how good a workout you gave them. Explore and practice ways to weave a theme into your class in a powerful and yet subtle way.
  • States of Relaxation – We’ll explore how to start and end your class in a mindful way that will have your students floating out and ready to schedule their next class. 
Over the course of the weekend, we will explore how to use your own personal voice, experience, and passion to create classes that leave a lasting impression on your students. Leave with new tools to infuse into your classes – new language authentic to you, meditations and guidance skill, and confidence and freshness. You’ll leave feeling like you’ve re-booted your teaching, and with tools you can put into practice immediately in your classes. All teachers will have the opportunity to receive feedback from the group if desired, and one followup check in with Sarah after the weekend has completed.
 
Class size is limited to keep attention and feedback time on individual teachers.

Workshop led by Sarah Spiegel Dunn: Sarah has had a long time love of building and supporting community and enjoys creating connection and transformation for individuals and groups through classes, workshops, transformational retreats, and trainings. In 2016, she quit her 9-5 job to open Samudra Studio, which she has grown into a thriving community since then. Sarah completed her 200 and 500 teacher training with Fluid Yoga and Kevan Gale and Betty Riaz. She is a certified SPA Yoga® teacher and assists SPA Yoga® founder Betty Riaz with trainings both regionally and internationally. She has also studied and holds certifications in Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson Lassiter, Thai Yoga Massage, and Yin Yoga and Meditation.

Many of us start off a yoga practice with a focus on the physical movement. We may have read of its benefits or been told how good yoga is for strength and flexibility and can compliment any exercise routine. Often it takes years before we understand or fully appreciate that the milleniums old practice is a complete lifestyle and not just an exercise for the body.

The Fluid Mind+Spirit weekend intensive is an ideal opportunity for those that have had a steady practice and want to understand more about the spiritual nature of Yoga. It will include a foundational understanding of mind training and the science of meditation. Our exploration will include the study of the Six Perfections (paramitas) as a gateway to living an exemplary life filled with generosity, patience, diligence, morality, meditation and wisdom. We’ll also learn more about the Buddha and his own journey and discoveries.
This weekend retreat requires no pre-requisites or level of yoga practice.

Starting with an overview of the foundational Tibetan Buddhist teachings on the mind, this program explores

  • Four preliminary techniques designed to elicit deep reflection
  • The science of meditation
  • Specific meditation practices, including shamatha, maitri (loving-kindness), and tonglen
  • Ways to establish a regular meditation practice at home
  • Yoga nidra (the yoga of relaxation)
  • Tools for applying yoga philosophy to everyday life.

If you’d like to join us from out of town we can help you find local accomodation in the beautiful Southern Maine area.
