Empowering People
Through Interoception
with Donna Farhi

28th September 2020, $150
10am-1pm, 2.15-5pm

In this teacher’s intensive, Donna will explore the conscious steps teachers can make to create a context for students to become adept at investigating, deducting, adapting and evolving their yoga practice.

We will learn about the conditions that foster people’s ability to perceive, process and integrate the signals from within their bodies. Not only can this approach yield exceptional results for participants; crossing the bridge from Simon says to self-sovereignty teaching can make teaching a more satisfying lifelong career.

This one-day intensive also includes access to an online one-hour keynote speech from Donna on Empowering People through Interoception - as a prerequisite to attending the course.
