The Yoga Better Training redesigns everything we think of when we picture a yoga training course with the simple goal to inspire and nurture the growth of you as a practitioner and leader. Each participant gets a unique experience, with outcomes that far surpass expectations, not from a mystical guru relationship, but rather by empowering you in your goals, your mission, your dreams, your life.
The difference in the Yoga Better style and training is in the perspective that underpins its explorations and solutions.
Instead of passing on the torch of any historical strains of movement and though, we’ve started from the ground up with a simple but revolutionary question:
What will make a lasting difference in you feeling better right now?
No other style focuses on you from start to finish.
Yoga Better teachers take a naturalistic world-view in explaining and developing the physical practice and in how we view the role of the teacher. We take the view that psychic or cosmic energy is not real, and we do not use the magical or mystical to explain the phenomena normally associated with a yoga practice, meditation, emotional health, relationships, leadership, learning, the cosmos, etc. In the Yoga Better practice, we focus on practical solutions, measurable results, all with the goal that you as a practitioner feel better, and in the training, that you as a participant are empowered to live the life you’re most in love with.
In that way, Andrew is not your guru; he doesn’t have special powers and abilities that you’ll get by just being around him. Andrew is a coach who has lots of experience in the skills of empowering you to be a rockstar. In the Yoga Better course, he doesn’t teach from ‘on high’, but rather is your partner is your own growth, crazily committed that you grow.
