Growing Yoga Teachers Workshop Series – Yama Sequence
Feb 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm| $569
How do I find my voice as a yoga teacher? Now that I’m RYT200, what am I going to do with that training? How can I make a living at teaching yoga? Do I want teaching yoga to be my livelihood?
Growing Yoga Teachers is a program designed especially to help find answers to these questions and more. Designed around the needs of recent yoga teacher training program graduates who are finding their voice and want more connection and feedback. The Yama Sequence is a series of 5 monthly 4 hour workshops covering issues that come up in class, enhancing your teaching, and business issues that come up as a yoga teacher. Each month these small group workshops will provide community and support to yoga teachers. Material covered will be a honing and deepening of the subjects you were introduced to during your 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in order to help you discover what kind of a teacher you want to be. In addition, you get one hour one-on-one with one of the teachers to go deeper on material from class (or review if you miss a class.) All styles and lineages welcome. We’ll provide support around creating workshops, the challenging student, integrating yoga philosophy and the 8 limbs into our lives and teaching, and much more. We’ll also guide you through the process of making your yoga teaching dreams come true, regardless of if your goal is to teach one class a week, or to have a whole career in yoga.

About the Instructors:
Nicole Hamilton: Nicole’s first teacher training in 2014 changed the way she practiced yoga. She learned how to teach the disciplined practice of ‘Bikram’ yoga with compassion; learning how to soften into an otherwise rigid yoga practice. This work transformed her personal yoga practice and also enabled her to bring a unique perspective of ease and breath-guided movement that she still offers in her more ‘Bikram’ style hatha yoga classes.
Since her first training, she has made it a priority to constantly be seeking out new ways to further her own practice and increase her offerings as a teacher. In 2015, she was thrilled to complete a Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour teacher training program through Lotus Yoga in Columbia City, Seattle with the incredibly gifted Megan Carroll. Her training at Lotus helped her access the philosophical side of our yoga work. She began to embrace the deeper aspects of yoga and understand that her yoga work was both on and off the mat. She developed a strong interest in yoga as therapy and how deep healing could be possible through a better understanding of the Chakra energy system of the body.
In addition to her traditional group classes, Nicole is Co-Owner of Adaptive Yoga Northwest, an organization dedicated to bringing the healing benefits of yoga to students living with mobility restrictions. Their work is inspired by the work of Matthew Sanford at Mind Body Solutions in Minnetonka, Minnesota who Nicole was fortunate enough to train with in the Spring of 2017.
Nicole loves to meet new people and learn how yoga has or can impact your life.
Maggie Karshner: Maggie is a business coach focusing on helping “solo-preneurs” leverage their passion into careers or businesses that are an ideal fit for their dreams.
Maggie will support students through the career/employment/business side of being a new yoga teacher. We will cover everything from: “How do you get your first yoga teaching job?” and “What does it take to start a studio?” to “Do you need insurance? What kind insurance?” and “What about business licenses, LLC’s, corporations, non-profits?”
Maggie managed operations at The Samarya Center for three years, providing support and marketing for their yoga classes, yoga teacher training and Integrated Movement Therapy sessions and trainings. In her time at Samarya she did everything from marketing and fundraising, to fielding every question imaginable, and transferring antiquated and paper-based systems to the MindBody and Salesforce platforms still used today.
More recently, Maggie has been coaching “solo-preneurs” in the fields of yoga, dance, massage therapy, and other movement, health and body work professions. She supports smart marketing efforts, wise business choices, financial and budget awareness, efficient workflows, and all other speed-bumps that come along with owning your own business.
