Advanced Teacher Training Mentoring
With Idit Hefer-Tamir
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” -Nelson Mandela
Join this mentoring circle to explore the use of words and language in a yoga class and in everyday life.
Every word holds energy.
How can our language support the energy of the class we wish to share with our students?
What words do we use simply as a habit?
How can our language be more inclusive to meet all our students where they are on their journey?
Shifting from careless speech to a more intentional mindful form of communication.
These are some of the reflections we will share in the circle.
“Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know more.”
The power of language: we translate our thoughts into words, but words also affect the way we think / Guillaume Thierry
“My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it is, before all, to make you see.”
― Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim
