Change the World!

 

You’ve come to the right place if you’re a yoga teacher who is...

  • Too busy
  • Looking for new inspiration
  • Bummed about turnout
  • Overwhelmed with marketing tasks
  • Trying to find a genuine voice in the world of social media
  • Concerned that yoga is becoming shallow
  • Worried about money
  • Tired of all the competition and trying to stand out

Teaching Yoga in the Digital Age is a course that provides a meaningful platform for yoga teachers to talk about how social media and technology are positively and negatively impacting our students and our profession, while giving you solid tools to succeed as a yoga teacher in the digital age.

Evidence now suggests that the internet may be re-shaping the plasticity of our brains, sacrificing our ability to think deeply, and making us less empathetic. The human attention span has fallen from an average of 12 seconds in the year 2000 to just eight seconds today. This means that you and your students might now have a shorter attention span than a goldfish (nine seconds)!

 

There’s no doubt that yogis are just as subject to these changes as the rest of humanity and we believe this could be taking its toll on the yoga world. If you care about Yoga's future, and what's best for your students, we want your voice in this conversation!

Have you noticed that yoga students have less patience for dharma talks? And that they’re more interested in achieving poses and getting a workout than the richness and depth of yoga or the journey of self awareness?

Classes that were once 90 minutes long are increasingly being replaced with 60 minute practices.

Is social media perpetuating a narrative that yoga is all about beach bodies, physical feats, acrobatics, and hyper flexibility? Do you get sucked into those feeds and feel intimidated sometimes? Is the the original narrative of yoga getting a little lost?

Alternatively - are you interested in building a social media following and exploring how that might benefit your career but you want to do it in your own authentic way? There's room for every kind of yoga teacher in this big beautiful world of yoga!

A lot of us have been afraid to talk about these things. There are all kinds of opinions and thoughts out there, but who is listening? By talking about it we can create healing and change!

If you’re a yoga teacher and you’ve wondered how to make it in this busy, wild world of social media and technology, we definitely want you here!

SNEAK PEEK of the exclusive interview with Elena Brower:

BIO: Mama, teacher, speaker, and co-author of Art of Attention, Elena has been teaching yoga and meditation since 1999.  After graduating from Cornell University in 1992 with a design degree, she worked as a textile and apparel designer for 6 years, and has been studying with master yoga teachers since 1997. Elena offers yoga and meditation as a way to approach our world with realistic reverence and gratitude.

Currently Elena teaches weekly and monthly classes in New York City and is the founder of Teach.Yoga, a global hub of content and inspiration created by the teachers, for the teachers. She also teaches online on YogaGlo.com.

 

SNEAK PEEK of the exclusive interview with Jessamyn Stanley:

BIO: Jessamyn Stanley is a yoga teacher, body positivity advocate, and writer based in Durham, North Carolina, and her classes use high energy vinyasa flow as a way to move past mental and emotional barriers. Her classes provide a body positive approach to yoga which celebrates students’ bodies and encourages them to ask “How Do I Feel?” rather than “How Do I Look?” when practicing yoga. Jessamyn's eponymous yoga lifestyle blog and Instagram attract thousands of followers daily, offering tips and advice for other yoga practitioners while documenting her home yoga practice.

Jessamyn contributes to Wanderlust, Mind Body Green, Buzzfeed, and Elephant Journal, and has been featured by a wide range of international and national media outlets including Good Morning America, Al Jazeera English, New York Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, and The Sunday Times, among others.


SNEAK PEEK of the exclusive interview with Claudine and Honza Lafond:

BIO: Claudine and Honza Lafond are the founders of YogaBeyond®, a brand built on the practice of yoga, trust and community. Their love story began from opposite corners of the world. True to their life philosophy of 'following your bliss', overcoming 10,000 miles apart simply meant another exciting adventure on their journey toward finding each other. They finally met in New York in 2007, and currently call Sydney, Australia their home away from home.

The desire to spread the message of yoga far beyond their existing yoga communities, led Honza & Claudine to finding their voice within the world of social media. With daily inspirational and educational posts of their practice on Instagram and Facebook, they have attracted a worldwide audience of over 400,000 followers. This creative platform allows them to connect with people from all corners of the world on a daily basis. With a busy teaching schedule spanning across Asia, Europe, US and other parts of the globe, YogaBeyond has fast become a leading edge yoga brand in both physical and virtual worlds.
