"This year I spent almost 2 months in Rishikesh, India where I took my 300hr training. There I realized how strong yoga foundation you have given me comparing to other students. don’t want to compare anything really, because all knowledge is good but when I’m teaching my classes – I still come back to your teachings."
"During the course, from a physio point of view too, I always really loved, trusted and respected the work and way you brought and presented the teachings.”
Grainne Flannery ,Physiotherapist and Yoga Teacher

“The Art of Teaching Yoga” is a manual for yoga teacher and trainees. This 169 page book offers clear and concise detail outlining yoga instruction, alignment details, common weaknesses teachers need to look out for in the classroom, adjustments and more on a variety of asanas from beginners to advanced. There is also a large section on “Teaching Skills” covering topics such as the importance of observation and demonstration, sequencing, structuring, pacing and principles of vinyasa.
This manual is used on all of the Green Lotus Yoga Teacher Trainings. It is also becoming popular with teachers who have trained in other schools who wish to deepen their knowledge of all aspects of teaching yoga. Many students say it has become their bible for class planning and reference.
A must for teachers and trainees who would like to expand their knowledge of yoga and gain more confidence in their teaching skills.
