This book sets the student right at its heart; it's about the learner, not the tutor. It enthuses on art, creating, balancing, simplicity and guiding with the learner at its centre. The use of myth (a la) Joseph Cambell was a golden moment for me. This is a book that will grace any yoga tutors library. -- Bob Insley, Yoga traveller, teacher and trainer
I was beautifully surprised by some of the topics and chapters, the blantantly spirited detail and descriptions given by the individual authors had me hooked and the different perspectives of the most simplest thoughts took my yogi journal to a whole new level...this handbook is an absolute must for any aspiring teacher or trainee who wants to 'get the dirt' without having to ask every Yoga teacher they meet for their do's and don'ts. -- Tiffany Edmunds, British School of Yoga Trainee Yoga Teacher
Sian has teamed with a panel of well-known and respected yoga teachers to bring you this handy guide for yoga teachers. Nuggets of wisdom and practical advice on composing sequences, incorporating philosophy, supporting and adjusting students, verbal cues and running a yoga business...the list goes on. A book that just keeps on giving! -- British Wheel of Yoga Spectrum Magazine
A must-have for all yoga teachers and trainees that provides a wealth of help and guidance on the day-to-day practicalities of teaching and running a yoga business that features insights from respected teachers including Liz Lark and Katy Appleton. It features topics including working with common injuries and conditions, breath, sequencing and incorporating philosophy and myth into class. It also provides key information on how to get the most out of a yoga business, with advice on setting up and running a studio and planning and leading retreats. Highly recommended. -- Yoga Magazine
