Supervision provides an important part of the yoga teachers journey. Whether you’re new to teaching or experienced we can all benefit from exploring the work that we do with other professionals. It’s relevant to working 1-2-1 but also in our class and workshop teaching. We can use it to explore difficult dynamics with clients and students, helping us to reflect on our thoughts, feelings, behaviour and general approach and may provide insights and reflections which may help avoid oversight. Supervision does not just support us in our professional role, it can help us develop on a personal level, especially when we pay attention to relational dynamics and our own embodiment when teaching. Through the support of supervision we can discover just how rich teaching yoga can be.
I offer sessions in person, over the phone or by Skype. Please contact me if you’d like to book a session or would like some more information. You can also visit my other website: www.theartofteachingyoga1-2-1.com for more information.
I’m also running regular supervision days for Yoga teachers and trainees:
Supervision for Yoga teachers
9th June at Space yoga studio Brighton 11.30 -5.30 (5 hrs cpd)
Open to all yoga teachers
Join us for a day to explore the role of supervision in our professional and personal journey as a yoga teacher. Since we work so in-depth with the body there are inevitable relational dynamics which surface both within the physical practice and within the frame of before, after and in between sessions and classes.
This day will provide a means to look at client/student material using an embodied relational approach, therefore we will explore how things manifest both within the body and the relational field. This can be very useful for avoiding oversight, supporting our clients/students appropriately and also bringing insight about our own feelings and experiences.
The day will include experiential exercises, discussion and process work. You are invited to bring your challenges, difficulties and joys of teaching to the day. Open to all teachers whether you teach classes, 1-2-1’s, workshops or retreats.
Kate Ellis is a senior teacher at triyoga and has been training teachers, mentoring and supervising for over ten years. She has also taught on the yoga campus yoga therapy training and runs a two year training program in Brighton for those wishing to specialize in the art of teaching 1-2-1. Supervision is a passion of hers since she believes it can transform one’s teaching. Having a place to take one’s work into a wider held relationship can allow teachers to explore their own material as well as that of their clients which Kate feels is crucial to the development and evolution of yoga teaching in the west. Kate is also a practicing body psychotherapist and she brings her skills from this area into the supervision days that she offers.
The day will be assisted by Pippa Richardson who has worked closely with Kate for the last 5 years.
