Please note: When we created this program, we had no idea how relevant it would be right now. Leading online yoga classes isn't modeling the poses for your audience. It's sitting in front of the screen and looking at and really seeing the people on the other side. It's not just about delivering a yoga class. It's about facilitating connection - via Zoom from your living room. New territory indeed. So, we ask...
Are you a yoga teacher who quietly longs to take their teaching, leadership and expression into new territory?
Are you ready to learn the skills to deliver bold, impactful--and packed--yoga classes full of sweat, stillness and play all while speaking from your heart?
Are you interested in developing a deeper understanding of the Baptiste Methodology and how to adapt and apply it to meet the needs of any population?
Are you willing to be seen, challenged and aligned with your soul’s secret sacred blueprint and use it to help you navigate and be a contribution to the world?
WHO THIS IS FOR?
Have you taken a yoga teacher training in the past, but lack the experience and confidence it takes to actually teach the people you want to reach? This one-on-one coaching program will focus on identifying what is keeping you scared, stuck or stale in your teaching and life so you can FREE UP! We will get compassionately curious about what is working and not working in your teaching so you can rumble with it and remove the rubble that blocks your expression and really impact students and the world.

Led by Brandy Berlin or Suzie Newcome
"During my high school college years, I had a few of smart, kind, funny and generous teachers and professors mentor me from my studentship into my teaching and leadership. Tears fall out of my leaky eye holes when I consider how these humans impacted my life. When I graduated from my 200 Hour yoga teacher training at Namaspa, I couldn’t wait to continue to grow as a teacher. Then fate put my primary yoga teacher Suzie Newcome regularly on her mat in my new Vin/Yin class. I remember being totally, equally, thrilled and terrified. What if, or rather when I screw up, she’s gonna be right there to see the shit go down! I got NOwhere to hide. Then, I remembered I was a YES for my growth! Her presence and attention, her straight and loving feedback, her being there as a stand for me challenged me and FREED ME UP to be a powerful, impactful yoga teacher. Out in the wide open, under Suzie’s mentorship, I sharpened the tools of my trade, and like the guides of years past, she too believed in me until I could catch up - and that let me tell ya - makes ALL the difference. This FREE UP Yoga Teacher Mentoring Program is a chance for me to humbly continue to bring this same support to others." --BB
