The Yoga Mat method taught by our instructors connects purposeful movements with conscious breath, and our educational approach improves body awareness and promotes individual choice. We present yoga in a way that can help your class think independently, so they can incorporate what you teach them into their life beyond the mat. We will share with you how to use a physical practice as an entry point to teaching calm, steady, and undisturbed students. The Yoga Mat team has deconstructed the subtle aspects of what makes a knowledgeable and successful yoga teacher – and we want nothing more than to share these aspects with you.
“Yoga is more than a workout – it’s about working on yourself. Yoga allowed me to find confidence, strength, and belief in my Self. I discovered the secret – the magic of change – through my yoga practice, and am now the proud owner a studio that is filled with love, kindness and open hearts.”
