Being able to study with Judith Hanson Lasater at my own pace and at my own convenience was a delight and this was an outstanding course. I have implemented many things from this class in my teaching, including allowing the top hip in triangle (and warrior 2) to come a bit forward - thank you!

This course is built in a way that inspires me to go deeper in every subject. I have been using Judith Hanson Lasater's books for years, but now I have been able to integrate the knowledge and wisdom from the books in my own practice as well as my teaching in a much more profound manner.

Teaching Yoga was my second course after Savasana Intensive, and it is a true compass in the way of teaching Yoga! I am waiting for my third course :-)

I live in a remote area and sometimes feel very distant from my teachers so this training was very helpful for me. I have had the great fortune of studying with Judith in person occasionally, but having her come into my home and speak to me through this medium was very powerful for me.

The material is useful and clear and the best part is that I can refer back to it whenever I want! I like the question and answer style of it and getting to know Judith's style of teaching which I only know through my own teachers as I have never had the chance to attend one of her classes.

Teach People, Not Poses

The path to becoming a more skilled teacher means learning to teach people first and poses second. What are you waiting for?

FAQ

  • Can I receive Yoga Alliance credit?

    Yes. At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of completion for 20 non-contact hours. After that, you can submit for continuing education credit from Yoga Alliance in the United States. If you live outside the USA, please ask your equivalent organization if they accept digital training as non-contact hours.

  • When does my course access expire?

    One year. Relax and take your time - that's the advantage of digital learning - you have unlimited access to the material for one full year.

  • Do I need to purchase additional materials?

    We recommend you have a copy of Judith's books, "30 Essential Yoga Poses: For Beginning Students and Their Teachers" and "What We Say Matters: Practicing Nonviolent Communication". We also recommend other books for your teaching shelf throughout the course.

  • Can I ask questions during the course?

    Yes! You can submit questions for Judith and Lizzie to answer directly.

  • What is your refund policy?

    We want you to be 100% delighted with your learning experience. If, for any reason, you're disappointed after the first chapter of the course, we will be happy to issue a full refund.
