Teacher CPD Events

Being a yoga teacher means being an eternal student as we continue to learn and grow, to enhance existing skills and to develop new areas of knowledge and expertise.

As a senior yoga teacher and teacher trainer, you will find me around the country offering a number of workshops and specialist immersion trainings designed especially for yoga teachers who are serious about being well educated professionals in the field of teaching yoga.

As well as trainings that focus on your skills as a teacher, I also run events that focus on developing all of the skills and knowledge needed to be a yoga business owner – a huge subject with many different aspects to consider if you want to be financially abundant, have the work/life balance you desire and serve the people you are really called to work with.

These Workshops and Teaching Immersions are eligible for CPD/Further training hours – Please check the individual requirements of the yoga organisation you are member of.

Exploration of Functional Anatomy For Yoga Teachers

This one day CPD workshop is a must for yoga teachers and teachers in training who want to expand their functional anatomy knowledge in relation to yoga asana.

Using a mixture of lecture, discussion and practical inquiry this workshops steps away from the dry (and yes sometimes boring) side of anatomy, to focus on real bodies in an experiential way. Spaces are limited – this is a small group setting which focuses on being able to provide plenty of individual attention, interaction and support.

  • Gain more confidence and a deeper understanding of how anatomy can enhance your teaching skills.
  • Learn the language of body reading and determining skeletal patterns
  • Assess common postural patterns
  • Understand how to make yoga postures both safe and inclusive for all
  • Examine what we say as yoga teachers and how to intelligently refine the use of anatomical language in our teaching.

Penny Chivas

Dawn led us in a friendly yet informative way through the Yin YTT path. I think one of the best things was that she has a an in-depth background of other yoga styles and we were able to understand clearly how Yin yoga differs from other practices, and not just see it as a stand-alone form. – Penny Chivas – (Penny Chivas Yoga)
