Guest blog by Meghan Malone-Scott on why she undertook our 300-hour level Advanced Teacher Training course.
Meghan now runs her own yoga business in Enniskillen.
After teaching for ten years and with two 200-hour trainings under my belt, I decided to participate in Ard Nahoo’s 300-hour level Advanced Teacher Training course, to continue to broaden and deepen my knowledge of yoga. I was drawn to Ard Nahoo because of Noeleen’s expertise in teaching alignment-based yoga and for the nurturing yoga community she has created there.
One of the most attractive elements of the course to me was the range of guest teachers Noeleen invited to assist her. To spend time with and learn from such authentic and experienced teachers was just wonderful, not least because I live and teach in rural Ireland. Studying specialist subjects with an array of senior teachers in such close proximity to home was a true gift!
The course offered a beautiful balance of in-depth learning, refinement of teaching skills, advanced asana, body biomechanics and therapeutics. This was delivered in a throughly professional way, with lots of time for reflection, discussion and application.
Noeleen has created such a warm learning environment and a very safe space for exploration and discovery. It is this friendly and down to earth approach that I feel makes Ard Nahoo stand out. This course will both challenge and inspire you. I certainly have grown and changed in many ways as a result of attending.
I recommend the Ard Nahoo Teacher Training to any yoga teacher desiring to hone their teaching skills and increase their understanding of this ancient practice. Prepare to be inspired!
