As teachers, we have the opportunity to transform our students’ experience through our words, our ability to hold a safe and sacred space and our intentional themes and sequences.  When we tap into the rhythm of silence and conversation, we are honoring language as creative power and harness the complementary skill of deep listening.  Speaking from our heart depends on our willingness to trust in our word, to mean what we say, to walk our talk.  When we are able to speak from an authentic and grounded place, the more technical aspects of teaching flow more seamlessly - sequencing, theming, etc.

EXPRESSIVE celebrates our ability to trust in the ways we use verbal and nonverbal communication to make indelible connections with our students and community.

In this module, you will:

  • Experience the art of holding space and teaching from your why (Sankalpa)

  • Explore the power of language through the study of conscious communication and the poetics of cueing 
  • Engage with Sanskrit, Mantra and Mudra as a tool to deepen our practice, teaching and life
  • Find inspiration through the study of classical texts like the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, poetry and mythology 
  • Discover ways to transform the inspiration of your experiences into class themes that deepen the dimension of your class conversation without losing rhythm or authenticity

  • Delve into sustainable and sophisticated sequencing strategies 

  • Write poetry, journal, and connect with your “inner artist"

  • Create and share class themes and sequences while receiving one-on-one mentoring and feedback

EXPRESSIVE can be taken independently or as a part of your YA 300HR certification.  With our unique curriculum and pay per module pricing, modules can be taken in any order.
