Be authentic and check the vibe…
YTP: What do you think makes a great yoga teacher?
Hali: Authentic expression, honesty, teaching for their students (not for themselves) and respecting their bodies (i.e. not show-boating in misaligned yoga postures).
YTP: What is the most important step students should take before signing up for a yoga teacher training?
Hali: To not over think it and ensure they vibe with the school and their methodology.
YTP: What is your one hope for each and every graduate of your yoga teacher training program?
Hali: That they live their most powerful lives, reach their dreams and become the most powerful version of themselves
YTP: What inspired you to become a yoga teacher trainer?
Hali: My training is based off of years of experience of a dedicated practice of yoga (over half of my life), and includes a vast number of personal healing techniques from personal development to asana to modern alignment and anatomy (taken from our affiliate 1000 hour yoga therapy program: NEU Yoga Therapy, to different energy and cognitive healing modalities, to modern nutrition. All of these modalities combined inspired me to become a trainer. It is my intention for my school to train students in different modalities and with the most recent science in nutrition and movement.
