I wish I learned this when I first started teaching Private Yoga Classes.

Teaching privately is very different from teaching group yoga classes.

You're probably passionate about yoga and sharing this beautiful, healing, and life-altering practice with your students. Perhaps you feel you can make a more meaningful shift in a student's life by teaching one-on-one with them. Maybe you feel more comfortable working with one person instead of a large group. Or you can see where there are students that vitally need personal attention.

These thoughts may be going through your mind:

  • How do I get private yoga students?
  • What happens if they don't come back?
  • I'm not a marketing person, how do I do this?
  • What about insurance and waiver forms?
  • How do I create a safe space for them to trust me?
  • How much do I charge?
  • What happens if I have a difficult client?
  • I'm afraid I'll burn out and won't have enough energy to give to myself or my student.

When I first started teaching private sessions, I didn't know where to start.

I was never given this information in my teacher trainings, that I'm about to give to you. Now running my own teacher training programs, there's too much content to cover already, that teaching private yoga classes needs its own module/course.

I've been teaching yoga for over a decade now, and my mission in the last number of years has been to make teaching yoga accessible for everyone so we can start to shift the consciousness of the planet.

About The Instructor:

Shanine Dennill

Shanine Dennill

Shanine was introduced to yoga in 1999 while living in South Africa (her birthplace). It wasn’t until she came to Canada in 2001 that she fell deeply in love with yoga. Yoga and meditation became a sanctuary for her during difficult times (especially in times of grief). It's an incredible tool she shares with others to help in their life – for self-care, to alter habits, and to learn the deeper meanings of life.

Shanine has been teaching yoga for over a decade and has completed 2 yoga teacher trainings, 1 meditation facilitator program, several smaller trainings, and workshops, and is currently completing her third yoga teaching training. Every teacher training program has offered her a unique learning experience (alignment, energetics, the stillness of mind, and spirituality). She is also a certified Health Coach.

She opened her yoga studio, Chrysalis Yoga, in 2011, a sanctuary for people to deepen their yoga practice and delve into the deeper aspects of life and yoga. She created her first yoga teacher training program in 2012. Teaching other teachers to teach is her greatest joy - to help raise the consciousness of this planet. Many of her teacher training graduates have gone on to teach yoga across the Greater Toronto Area in her studio, other studios, gyms, events, and privately.

In her free time, she loves to spend hours in nature, hiking with her dog companion, Rihanna.

What Yoga Teachers Say About the Course

“The opportunity to take this course was a true honor and privilege, as I am wanting to teach private one-on-ones and had no idea of how to go about it and didn't know where to start. I took this course in order to begin teaching my own private sessions in a confident way, that would help set me up for success. This course provided me with some wonderful strategies that I could incorporate my goals and vision into going forward. The workbooks really help you gain focus and perspective as to who you want to teach and the kind of teacher you want to be. The modules are easy to follow, and there are some great ideas for teachers on discovering their unique qualities and gifts. I really appreciated the sample letters provided and found them to be extremely helpful. Another section that I found most helpful was the financial section, discussing in more detail about promotions, setting up your business and insurance tips. What I favoured most about the program was taking it at my own pace. I felt the videos, along with the exercises, helped put the content into perspective and helped me to figure out what my goals and ambitions as a private teacher are. I would recommend this program to all inspiring teachers/coaches. Even if one doesn't want to teach private sessions, the information in each module is extremely valuable. I am extremely excited to begin my journey as a private yoga teacher!”
