120: The missing piece to your international career

120: The missing piece to your international career

In this episode, I’d like to share with you the missing piece to your international career.

Actually, there are a few missing pieces, but the first and most important one, as you can guess now, is receiving support and guidance with finding and developing your own voice (even more so, if you want to teach in a foreign language).

Finding your voice is step one of the 6-step process to becoming a confident and authentic English-speaking yoga teacher.

Your voice, as they call it in yoga, is the way you speak and what you communicate. This includes your tone of voice and also the type of language you use. You may have heard of the terms ‘use your voice’, ‘authentic voice’, ‘finding your voice’.

All of this refers to the development of becoming and expressing yourself as you are. The way you communicate and what you communicate. When finding your voice in a foreign language, it also refers to learning the type of language that matches your teaching style and personality, so that you can stay true to your natural way of being and communication, even when teaching in English.

It can be intimidating to teach in a foreign language, but since you’re here. I know you have a passion you want to share with the world. It’s time to do the work and kiss goodbye all your fears and insecurities.

Because remember, ’Teaching yoga in a foreign language is a sign of bravery!’

In this training, I'll share 7 steps to overcome practical challenges and common fears that stop you from finding your voice!

119: 3 tricks to reprogramme your mindset for a lasting career

119: 3 tricks to reprogramme your mindset for a lasting career

In episode 118, I shared with you the mindset shifts needed to feel capable of teaching yoga.

I spoke about the reason 'why' you feel you aren't ready to teach yoga and unpacked 4 things that may cause you to lack confidence.

All of them are limiting beliefs.

It starts with a thought, which then makes you feel a certain way, which provokes another thought, and boom ... you’re in the cycle of negative thinking, doubting your skills, and feeding your own insecurities, which is absolutely not necessary!

As I finished that training, I realised that there's A LOT more I’d like to share about this topic so in this episode, I want to continue and give you 3 practical tricks to reprogramme your mindset for a lasting career.​

Expect to find out

• How to leave the chicken and egg situation and actually get out there

• How to find safe teaching opportunities that will help you build confidence and feel capable

• 3 ways to overcome limited and negative thinking and shift your thoughts outward rather than in

P.S. Are your English language skills the reason for you to postpone your career?

114: Outdated cues and how to unlearn them

The word 'outdated' refers to things that are old-fashioned.

Usually, old-fashioned is a word that describes something that is ancient, antique, obsolete, or out of date. Stuff that’s made in a different age; from materials we no longer use; things that aren’t anymore produced, or because we’ve found faster, more innovative ways. Just as production and consumption make advances, so do we people and so does language.

In the past you may have heard or learned certain cues. They made a lot of sense and you may have even started using them in your own classes. By now, you’ve heard them so often that you don’t even question the words anymore. However, due to social advances, research and revision, some of the cues you may use today are no longer accepted. Instead this type of outdated language is considered

• ineffective

• inaccurate

• non-inclusive

• offensive

With this episode, I want to help you understand why some cues are no longer safe to use and how you can recognise similar phrases to make your cueing language up-to-date and appropriate.

112: What's a well-rounded sequence

112: What's a well-rounded sequence

Many teachers in our community complain that their Yoga Teacher Training didn’t prepare them enough to write sequences or that they didn’t receive enough practice time to learn to write them. And, I know how much your ability to write high quality sequences would boosts your confidence.

Themed sequences that feel logical and intuitive.

Sequences that...

you can use again and again, without feeling repetitive. are well-rounded and offer great development of strength, flexibility, sthira and sukha. inspire your students to continue their spiritual journey. provide your students with enough to learn.

Or simply put, sequences your students love to practice, and you love to teach.

Sequencing is a skill and just as learning vocabulary, it requires practice. On the English for Yoga Teachers Course, I’ve dedicated an entire module to learn, develop, and practice your sequencing skills. It’s one of my favourite modules, because this is where I see most of our teachers make massive progress in their confidence building and owning their authentic expression as a yoga teacher.

But what really is sequencing? 

What does a sequence consist of? 

And what is a well-rounded sequence?

In this episode, I’ll give you answers to all those questions!

111: 7 tricks to optimise learning English for yoga

111: 7 tricks to optimise learning English for yoga

Everyone’s learning process is different. Learning processes differ depending on for example:

• the type of thing you want to learn

• your experience with the topic so far

• the methodologies and learning techniques you’ve been taught to use in the past

Some sign up for courses to work towards a specific outcome in a container, finding support in sharing their journey with their classmates. Others go for coaching or mentoring to receive 1:1 or personalised support. And again others like a more independent approach and try to figure it all out by themselves.

Whatever your learning strategy looks like, it can be that you:

• Don’t know really know where to start or how to continue

• Feel overwhelmed with all the different resources, materials and courses available and don’t know which is right for you

• Get stuck because you focus on things you don’t actually need by using old-fashioned learning methods that don’t (longer) work for you

• Feel alone, because you don’t have anymore to share your progress with

As an avid learner of anything to do with yoga and foreign languages, I’ve explored many different learning strategies. Some worked, some didn’t, and years back I thought it’d be the same for everyone.

However, teaching English as a foreign language has taught me that the opposite is true. Everyone has a different way of absorbing and processing information, so I’m aware that there’s no one-size-fits-all.

I love exploring this topic and it’s my passion to help you optimise your learning journey. So, having helped hundreds of yoga teachers and English learners navigate their journey I realised that there’s one thing that truly works for all: personalising your learning journey!

In this training I’ll take you through the 7 ways to optimise learning English for yoga!

110: 3 language mistakes multilingual yoga teachers make

110: 3 language mistakes multilingual yoga teachers make

Learning a foreign language comes with unique challenges.

Depending on your mother tongue, some languages may be easier to learn than others. But, even when the roots or origins of two languages are the same, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and cultural aspects are different.

Most of the time, the purpose of general language classes is to help you pass exams. This is unfortunate when you want to learn a language for teaching yoga. The language aspects we use in a yogic setting are very specific and very sensitive. General language classes usually don’t provide you with the knowledge and skill practice you need to teach yoga in a foreign language.

So, yoga teachers that have never studied language for yoga classes often make mistakes that can

• cause physical and emotional harm

• damage your student-teacher relationships

• cause a lot of confusion

In today’s training I want to discuss with you three of the most common language mistakes I see teachers in our community make. My aim is to help you analyse your language use and find out what you can improve it to

• make yourself understood better

• guide your students with more compassion

• strengthen your student-teacher relationships

Ways of including everybody in your English yoga classes

109: 5 cueing mistakes multilingual yoga teachers make

109: 5 cueing mistakes multilingual yoga teachers make

Cueing is the art of verbally guiding students through your yoga asana classes.

It includes all the words, phrases, metaphors and expressions you use to teach.

Now, imagine teaching yoga in a foreign language…

Knowing the correct terminology for body parts, verbs, and language for directions and movement can be quite a challenge.

Then understanding which words are inclusive and non-offensive requires study and real-life experience.

And when you finally know the right vocabulary, forming sentences that are quickly understood by your students and easy to remember for you is the next step.

As you can tell, cueing isn't something you learn in one day and mistakes are easily made.

In this training, I'd like to help you become aware of 5 cueing mistakes that are commonly made by multilingual yoga teachers. This awareness will help you:

• analyse what language aspects you can improve

• optimise your verbal communication to strengthen your student-teacher relationships

• guide your students with compassion

108: How to start teaching yoga in a foreign language

108: How to start teaching yoga in a foreign language

When I did my first yoga teacher training, I learned the hard way that the language we use in a yogic setting isn’t the same as what we learn in general language classes. At this point I was already very fluent in English; I had a C2 certificate and even taught English as a foreign language to students from all over the world.

I did not once think that I would have language challenges doing my yoga teacher training in English. My level of English was proficient, but having a conversation about yogic topics, let alone cueing a yoga asana class was something completely new.

In the very beginning, I felt defeated and doubted my skills.

It made me feel as if I had to start learning all over again. But then I realised it had nothing to do with my language skills, it simply was because my studies and daily conversations had never been in this area.

Thankfully, I was an English language teacher so I could transfer the skills and knowledge I gained teaching general and exam English, to teach myself the language I needed for teaching yoga. I spent hours and hours learning, studying, observing, and improving.

Realising that the need for language and communication training among yoga teachers was high, I did more yoga teacher training and eventually developed a framework to help you: non-native English speaking yoga teachers, learn the language you need for your job, so that you can:

• Teach with confidence

• Speak with authenticity

• Strengthen your student-teacher relationships.

Based on my experience guiding hundreds of yogis learning to teach yoga in English as a foreign language, in this training I want to share with you 3 steps to help you understand:

• Where to start teaching yoga in a foreign language.

• What to do to save time

• How you can make your learning journey personal, effective and enjoyable!

107: 3 things that boost your confidence teaching yoga

107: 3 things that boost your confidence teaching yoga

The biggest obstacle when learning anything is lack of confidence.

Think of when you're learning a foreign language and feel embarrassed about your pronunciation.

Or learning to teach yoga and doubt your cues and instructions are effective and easily understood.

Imagine learning to teach yoga in a foreign language and the fears around both your speaking and teaching skills come up.

When you lack confidence it's possible that you

• hide

• stop trying

• avoid things you find challenging

But if your aim is to teach yoga in internationally, in multiple languages none of these things help.

Instead, I want to help you teach with total confidence and share your passion for yoga without doubting yourself.

If you recognise this challenge, join me for this training to find out about 3 key tools that help you boost your confidence teaching yoga in a foreign language and you can easily start doing today!

104: 2022 Year Reflection

104: 2022 Year Reflection

Every year is full of new learnings!

To fully be present with what arises... what needs to be seen... and prepare for growth...

I believe we need intentional reflection on 'what actually happened' and 'how we got there'.

For me personally, 2022 was an extremely challenging year.

I started the year feeling completely burnt out, not being able to do anything for 3 months. I separated, moved countries, went back into therapy and did A LOT of work on myself.

Even though I felt defeated, triggered, tested... I know it was something I had to go through to experience 'break through'.

Break through was needed to keep doing what I do... helping you create the career you dream of!

Whether it's by improving your language and communication skills or business knowledge.

I met heaps of incredible people that inspired, supported, and encouraged my growth.

I had tons of new experiences, 'aha' moments, transitions, and signs that activated my intuition and made me make life changes (which I'll share with you tomorrow)

So, in this live training, I'll tell you a little bit about what happened for me in 2022, what I learned and how I dealt with the challenges life threw my way to step up and overcome obstacles that limited my growth (and career path).

I hope you see this as an invitation to receive the tools to intentionally reflect on your year too and prepare yourself for intuitive goal setting!

__________________________________

You may have a wish list of programmes and software to invest in (check out episode 101), but before you spend all your money on things you don't actually need, I think that it’s wise to consider your business plan/model to invest wisely and plan out your ideal career.

Based on my experience working with many starting business owners, it doesn’t really matter what you create. Building the foundation of your businesses takes quite a similar approach. However, your business model heavily influences your task management, market research, messaging, content creation, and community building.

So today, let's have a look at some business models to for you to consider. During this session, I'll also give you some journal prompts to help you gain clarity on the business model that best suits you.

Per DMs on social media or email, please share your answers with me. This way I can give you feedback on your ideas, but also hold you accountable for pursuing your objectives.

92: 4 types of words to master your cues

Cueing is an art. It’s the art of guiding your students into positions or variations that allow them to experience the asana in a way that is beneficial to them, using as few words as possible.

Cueing is communicating clearly and considerately so that you can guide your students’ movement in the moment. These cues must serve your students as individuals even when they’re in a group so that they can find what works in their body.

If you speak too fast, students get lost. If you speak too quietly, students focus too much on trying to hear you. And if you use too many words, students will need to think too much about what you want them to do.

To master your cues, simplicity is the key. What you say and how you say it directly impacts the practice of our students, so it’s really important to pay attention to it.

Now you know that cueing is the art of directing your students into positions or variations that allow them to experience the asana in a way that is beneficial to them, with as few words as possible, in this training we’ll look at how to form instructional cues (active cues) with the four types of words that will help you master the foundation of your cueing language.

86: 3 things that support your professional development

As an educator and avid learner, in my classes and coaching sessions I get often asked about the best strategies to speed up professional development. The first time I researched this topic was years ago, when I taught English to adults in Edinburgh, Scotland. In this job position I usually spent 2-4 months with students, fully immersed, to speed up their learning process so that they could use English for their job as pilots, oil rig workers, hairdressers and what not.

Obviously, my work today is completely focussed on language, communication, and business education for yoga teachers - so your needs, aims, dreams, wishes and objectives you have for your career are completely different. However, my experience teaching people from all sorts of backgrounds, and the research I did back then have helped me tremendously supporting you and all the people I’ve worked with in their professional development.

Over the past three years, I’ve helped hundreds of yoga teachers and yoga business owners in their professional development journeys. From simply gaining confidence in their teaching skills, overcoming fears and self-doubt, creating services to teach what they most love to share, to actually helping them build their own business and international career.

What we all know is that everyone is different. My experience shows as well that every journey is different. Every goal is personal and we all have our own challenges and obstacles along the way.

But I do believe that the three things I'm sharing today, will support and speed up your professional development!

84: 5 communication mistakes multilingual yogis make

84: 5 communication mistakes multilingual yogis make

A common misconception is that to learn how to teach yoga in a foreign language is to attend regular language classes. But, the terminology regarding the different areas the practice of yoga can benefit in life is very specific. To guide your students through a completely transformational experience, you need to have knowledge and the ability to speak about more than just the body.

As a multilingual yogi it can feel extremely discouraging knowing you speak a language, but not being able to express yourself fully in a yoga class. I understand what it’s like to doubt your accent, you’re using the right words and find it challenging to speak with clarity. Or, find words and phrases that make your cues easy to remember.

You may think you’re repetitive and your students find your classes boring. Or you believe that you aren’t clear enough and your cues lack imagination. You want to be able to guide your students in a way that’s accurate, safe, informative, but also inspiring!

It may surprise you that to do so, your accent, fear of repetition and memorising the right words aren’t part of the mistakes I address in this episode. To upgrade your language skills, you need to start with awareness of the five communication mistakes multilingual yogis make in regard to language and mindset - let's begin!

82: Manifest your ideal teaching career with intention

Manifest to your ideal teaching career with intention

Your challenges as a multilingual yoga teacher aren’t the same as that of teachers teaching in their first language. They’re about identity, language, and communication which are both unique and personal. Yet all teachers in our community deal with these same things.

So, in order for me to create an impactful experience, I reflected on all the things I missed in my training and education as a non-native speaker. And that’s when I realised that having knowledge is step one, but the opportunity to embody this knowledge through practice, teaching experience and the help of a community is underestimated.

I came to realise that all the work I’ve put into creating our courses is because I want them to truly make a difference for you.

They are inspiring, motivating and completely personalised to your learning styles and professional goals. They help you transform your teaching voice, techniques, knowledge and skills so that you can create the teaching career you dream of.

So, in this training, I want to help YOU manifest your ideal teaching career with intention.


JOURNAL QUESTIONS FOR ACTIVE GOAL-PLANNING:

1. How is my year unfolding?

2. What have I already achieved?

3. Who played a part in my success?

4. What positive habits support me?

6. What negative habits hinder me?

7. What do I want to accomplish before the year ends?

78: 3 types of yoga cues you need to know!

78: 3 types of yoga cues you need to know!

Cueing yoga is an art! The skill of cueing clearly and effectively has a lot to do with your communication skills, and your ability to understand what goes on in your students' minds while they're moving through your classes.

Great cues don’t leave room for questions, have your students wondering ‘what did my teacher say’?, or students telling you ‘I don’t understand’.

In this episode I’m sharing three foundational cues that you need to know to build on the foundations of your teaching skills. This is a great place to start, even if you’re teaching in a foreign language!

77: Passive vs Active Vocabulary

77: Passive vs Active Vocabulary

Our standardised educational systems unfortunately focus too much on developing the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), but there's a fifth skill, which I call becoming an independent learner.

As an independent learner, you know how to distinguish passive from active vocabulary and find the resources and learning material that match your personal and professional objectives for learning the language.

Understanding this difference will massively improve your ability to learn yogic vocabulary for teaching yoga in English and speaking about yogic topics with your students and colleagues!

In this training learn the difference between passive and active vocabulary and..

how understanding the difference can massively improve your language learning how you make your passive vocabulary active as a yoga teacher

70: How to get experience if you’ve just finished your YTT or don’t have much yet?

Many YTTs don't actually have or give you the time to make enough teaching hours to develop your style, teaching personality and build your teaching foundations. So, it's not uncommon to feel incapable of teaching after obtaining your teaching certificate. 

Next to that, getting your first teaching experience, especially during the time of the pandemic has changed. Even more, now that 80% of all yogis, practice from home!

In this episode, I’m sharing 2 ways to get more teaching experience online and/or from home (even when you're working at a studio, gym, or other type of yoga organisation), so that you can teach with confidence and clarity!

69: How fluent do I really need to be to teach yoga in English

Learning a language is a challenge, learning how to teach yoga is a skill, but learning how to teach yoga in a foreign language is an expertise.

The language you learn in a general English class isn’t the language you need for teaching yoga, so, in this episode, let me share with you what type of language you need to study to feel more confident and become more fluent while teaching yoga in English.

54: What’s the difference between your belly, abdomen and stomach? - Q&A mini series

54: What’s the difference between your belly, abdomen and stomach? - Q&A mini series

In yoga we often refer to the belly area. For example, to engage the core or stretch the abdomen in Bridge Pose. Both the core and the abdomen are found in the belly area.

Belly, abdomen and stomach are often used interchangeably because all of them are around the same area. However, they have a very different purpose and are cued with very different intentions.

I recommend choosing the term that specifically speaks to what you want your students to do.

Listen to this episode to find out how to choose the best word in a situation like this, to make your class cues clear, consistent and effective.

She took her first yoga class around 15 years ago and is a dedicated Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Restorative practitioner. She began to teach following the request of her teachers. She has studied Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga Philosophy, Yoga Anatomy, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga in France, India, and Indonesia with world-renowned teachers. She completed her last 300hr YTT with Monica Gauci and Gregor Maehle who are KPJAYI certified and published authors. She also trained with Laruga Glaser, Janet Stone, Saul David Haye, Sienna Sherman, Paul Grilley and Jason Crandell for example. She believes that all teachers should remain students and as she is passionate about learning, she is always training in different subjects in online courses or in-person TTC.

One of her big passions is to share everything she has learned from her own teachers with her students. Gwen also teaches pranayama and yogic meditation as traditionally taught in India. She has studied with Kausthub Desikachar and Gregor Maehle and follows Krishnamacharya lineage. Gwendoline is as well trained in Restorative Yoga in the tradition of Iyengar with Judith Hanson Lasater, Lizzie Lasater and Cyndi Lee. Gwen teaches Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Prenatal, Postnatal, Kids and Restorative Yoga classes. She also teaches Anatomy courses for 200 and 300 hours YTTC and has studied Yoga Anatomy with Physiotherapists and Chiropractors such as Monica Gauci, Judith Hanson Lasater, Paul Grilley and David Keil. She is also a certified sound therapist.

Her teaching style combines a traditional approach to yoga with the needs of each individual student and this is why she offers her teaching to all ages and groups of people from kids to seniors.
