EMPOWERED EMPATH: 6-Day Continuing Education Training for Yoga Teachers of Any Style

  • Innerstellar Pilates & Yoga 2800 Adeline Street Berkeley, CA, 94703 United States (map)

Do you seem to know what other people will do or say before it happens?  Do you need more alone time than others? Do you often feel fragmented, overwhelmed, angry, anxious or tearful for no apparent reason? When teaching, do you get flooded and feel unsure of what to do? Do you get easily triggered by your students? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you are likely highly empathic. Come build your skillfulness as an empath so that you can bring your Wiser Self forward in your life, and be a current of healing and truth for your yoga students and loved ones. 

This course is a part of the Forrest Yoga 300-hour Certification (open to yoga teachers of any style) and qualifies for Continuing Education credits with Yoga Alliance.
In this 6-day training, you will:

  • Learn what kind of empath you are, and how you best receive information
  • Hone your abilities to see, feel and move energy in your yoga practice and teaching
  • Recognize the signs that ou are depleting your own energy, or allowing another to deplete your energy
  • Discover new and effective pathways to supporting yourself as an empath
  • Practice caring & effective hands-on assists
  • Learn how to better help your students heal their injuries and chronic pain/tension with yoga asana
  • Get tools to uplevel your teaching, including running energy or pulling it out with your hands, clearing energy that sticks itself to you, setting clear boundaries, speaking/teaching what's true and "uptaking the sweetness" so you can feel nourished by your teaching and your life

Delight each morning in a 2.5 hour Forrest Yoga Ceremony & Intensive, with teaching themes to help you deepen your skillfulness in feeling, digesting and sorting information so you can trust and act on your intuition more quickly and effectively. Spend each afternoon practicing your new skills and upleveling your yoga teaching in a warm, fun, safe learning environment. Your empathic nature is a treasure not to be squandered  -- come learn how to work with it more skillfully so you can uncover its many brilliant facets!
