This course is all about you! There is no “right or wrong” on this training – it’s not about being assessed. Rather, the focus is on you and your personal journey as an Instructor. On this course – YOU set the standard. The secret to finding your next level is within you – and your Trainer will assist and guide your development.
You will have lots of time for reflection and self-assessment. You will present tracks, reflect, develop, watch videos, and gain incredible insights into how to deliver the experience in your classes. At the end of the training, you will be given a development plan, to achieve your personal goals.
Instructors are allocated a track prior to the training to pre-film before the start of the online training. They work with this track over the course of Day 1 to identify how they can integrate the concepts discussed into their teaching.
- Welcome and course overview

- We explore the program essence and show enjoyment:
- What’s your enjoyment, and how do you show it when you teach?
