Network Yoga Therapy believes it’s important to stay in touch with each other personally and organises several opportunities to do so. Yoga Intervision Amsterdam (for yoga teachers,- and therapists – in education or not) is one of those.
The aim of the intervision is to create a safe and friendly place for reflection, sharing ideas and exchange of knowledge. A place, where you can start to think critically and creatively about your professional behavior and personal values. A hub, where you can meet like-minded people, start discussions and find inspiration.
Yoga teaching is an art, that requires knowledge, grace and intuition – all perfectly balanced. The teacher and therapist have to show up completely, in the moment, be including and available to their students/ clients with a profound willingness, humbleness, vulnerably and strength. To be a professional, is to reflect on yourself.
on Tuesdays, once a month
at ‘de nieuwe yoga school’ Amsterdam
from any yoga lineage, any field and position in healthcare, expertise and perspective.
"My favorite part of NYT Meet-Ups, is the fact that you receive a lot of different visions, views and angles that give you a myriad of ways to look at a situation and you can see what resonates with your own gut feeling. And learn new things you weren't aware of. I would say it is an amazing expansion of your own (limited) scope on things in teaching yoga, being a teacher, being human.”
Before I came to this meet-up I was afraid is would not be useful for me, because I just started teaching. But, it turned out to be incredibly useful for me! As a new teacher you come across so many uncertainties and to notice that even teachers with years of experience can have the same uncertainties, was an eye-opener. It gave me confidence and tools that I could use in class. But it also gave me new Facebook friends who tell me more about yoga events and other news in yoga business. The part where we all discussed the case, I liked most. It gave so many insights, but also other challenges came to discussion. I would say that it’s a nice way to meet other teachers and learn from and with them. Even if you don’t have anything to discuss (yet) it can be useful to just listen and help other teachers to build their confidence.
