Guided meditation training for yoga teachers
Yoga teachers all understand the importance of meditation, not just as a foundational motivation for the creation of yoga, but also as a path to deeper levels of understanding & inner peace. While most yoga teachers have experience leading brief meditations at the beginning of class or during the Shavasana pose, very few have a specific & detailed understanding of how to lead transformational guided meditations.
As the number of yoga teachers & the demand in the meditation market rises dramatically, teachers who can facilitate outstanding guided meditations – distinct from mindfulness – have a chance to differentiate themselves and capitalize on a growing global trend towards inner work.

Benefits of guided meditation for yoga teachers
Professional meditation teacher training enables yoga teachers to provide more meaningful experiences to their students, and a way to expand their teaching beyond the textbook yoga class. As competition in the yoga industry rises, a growing number of teachers are differentiating themselves & expanding their business by incorporating immersive meditation experiences into their repertoire.
Standout in a crowded industry
Yoga studios are a dime a dozen in major cities and are steadily popping up in small towns across the globe. While this doesn’t decrease the value of practicing yoga, it does create a challenge for yoga teachers looking to make a unique impact in the lives of their students. The Guided Meditation Framework® teaches a technique of guided meditation designed to provoke insights & inspire creativity that enables teachers to provide an experience their students won’t find from anyone else.
Expand into group events, workshops & retreats
Yoga & goal-oriented guided meditations create the perfect recipe for transformative workshops, retreats & other group events. By excelling at facilitating deep inner exploration, yoga teachers drastically improve their ability to lead unique events that are far more impactful & memorable for their participants than the typical yoga retreat. The Guided Meditation Framework® provides detailed instruction on facilitating group meditation experiences, developing leadership ability & structures for leading meditation infused events.
Add more value & variety
There are only so many yoga classes teachers can lead – or take for that matter – before they begin to feel like they are just going through the motions. Guided meditation can offer a way to reinvigorate a teacher’s passion for improving the lives of their students by helping students explore their thoughts & feelings in meditative contemplation. The Guided Meditation Framework® can show yoga teachers how to integrate this skill set seamlessly into what they do to add a newness & depth to their work with students.
