In-Person Weekend in Phoenixville PA

APRIL 28-30, 2023

Deepening the Teaching Experience

with Bob & Kristen Butera & Erika Tenenbaum

Join us for a profound weekend of in-person inquiry

The ongoing experience of teaching yoga is one of constant renewal. Whether we have been teaching for 1, 5, 10 or 20 years, we must continue to explore and expand our knowledge, skill and ability to apply the teachings of Yoga.

Teaching is something that we learn through embodiment. As such, to choose the path of teacher is to choose the path of being a life-long learner. To choose the path of yoga teacher is to choose a path of ongoing exploration and inquiry into the possibilities of practice as it relates to consciousness and the human experience.

This special weekend will explore the reciprocal relationship between teaching and practicing yoga, infusing the path with new insights and practical ways to keep perspective fresh and interesting over a period of many years. As we explore the ongoing experience of teaching yoga, we will focus on:

- Staying true to the roots of practice
- Honoring our gifts and ushering them into the world
- Being inspired by new perspectives
- Creating meaningful learning environments and experiences

Through continued community connection, embodied learning practices, new insight and inspiration, we will explore ways to make continuing meaning through yoga philosophy, education and practice for many years to come.
