Be the first to know about the upcoming Yoga Teacher Training with Clara.
I completed Clara’s 300-hour YTT, and it exceeded all of my expectations. There are so many 300-hour training to choose from, but Clara’s training stands out to me as one that is extremely comprehensive. It requires quite a bit of work, but I believe that what you put into the training you will receive back.
Clara’s training helped me break out of my comfort zone by giving me the skills to teach aspects of the practice that I wasn’t previously confident in, such as leading mantra for a group. I left each module of training feeling more confident and inspired as a teacher, and that shows up in my public classes and online offerings. Following Clara’s training, I have been able to step into the role of offering continuing education for other yoga teachers in my community. I’m so glad I chose to continue my yogic studies with Clara as it was the perfect step to help challenge me and push me towards growth as a teacher.
The training was everything I was looking for and more. As a Manual Osteopath, I’m very passionate about injury prevention and support and Clara educated us on the newest research regarding incorrect movements and common injures we’re seeing in the industry today. She taught us what we can do as teachers to support our students through proper alignment, cueing and how to carefully craft a proper sequence that prepares the body and supports the intention. We learned how to find inspiration, flesh out theming that feels authentic to us and create impactful bhav.
Clara’s sequencing is brilliant, intelligent and I think all teachers need to take this training so that they learn how to sequence in a way that truly supports the student. Everything has a purpose and is thought through carefully. It has changed the way that I sequence and truly made me a more confident teacher in my offerings. My biggest takeaway was she gave me permission to be myself, teach from my heart, and believe that what I offer is enough.
