30 hrs Foundations of Teaching Meditation and Mindfulness Online Course for Yoga Teachers
On this online course Charlie will guide you through the practice and teaching of more than 10 different types of meditations in live classes, PLUS more than 6 hours of live online classes studying the theory of meditation and how to teach it. You will learn (almost!) everything there is to know about meditation and mindfulness, how to create your own self-practice, and how to teach it to your students. We will bust through the myths that meditation is boring, difficult, just sitting crossed legged focusing on your breath, and make meditation interesting, simple and practical. Learn how to make meditation easy and relatable for yourself and your students!
Indiv Yoga is a Yoga Alliance YCEP (Yoga Continued Education Provider). Yoga Alliance requires Yoga Teachers to complete 30 hours of Continued Education every 3 years (min 10 hours must be contact hours – in person or live online with the teacher).
The first 2 weeks of this course will be the contact hours of live online classes with Charlie, and the online teaching hours. Students then have a further 10 days to complete their self-study and coursework hours.
This course is called the ‘foundations of teaching’ because in order to become a good meditation teacher to others, you must establish a regular meditation practice yourself. This course will give you the tools and knowledge you need to stick to a regular practice and help others do so too
