Student Support

safe hands


We recognise that an intensive month of yoga training can be both physically and mentally demanding so we want to create is a relaxed and stress free learning experience. Tribe Teacher Trainings include the following program of student support:

  • Study Groups: Study groups are a chance for trainees to share experiences and support each others progress. Teachers and teaching assistants lead the groups. Each group has a max of 7 students and a designated teacher who acts as mentor for the trainees during the training.
  • Personal Interviews: During the training trainees are given an opportunity to have a personal interview with one of the main teachers to discuss their self practice and other personal matters.
  • Student Co-ordinator: Its always good to have a specific person to turn to if something or someone is a problem for you. On trainings with a large student number we allocate a Student Coordinator who’s main focus is the well-being of the trainees. The student coordinator is available to deal with personal concerns or study difficulties and to help you to ‘settle in’ when you first arrive at the venue. If for some reason there is no student co-ordinator available student will be encouraged to approach the training facilitator who oversees all training matters.
  • One complimentary massage: A complimentary massage to relax, rejuvenate and soothe away any aches and pains.

Teaching Assistant Testimonial – 2013

“Rejoining Tribe as an assistant was to enter a time and space that was so rich and so conducive to transformation. It is by infusing ourselves within the teachings and living within a conscious community, that we begin to live as true yogis. The boundary between practice and life shrinks as move toward a state of continuous uninterrupted practice at all moments.

Assistant is a unique space between the role of teacher/giver and student/ receiver. A place where both can be observed. I began to feel those roles give way to a circular experience that we are all giving into and harvesting from. The sense of separateness began to dissolve and was overtaken by the energy and the potency of the teachings in practice.

I had the opportunity to work with amazingly inspiring teachers and see them in action from a new perspective. Since then a new vision of my professional identity has begun to present itself. Watching the vibrancy emerge from within the students I really saw what a gift it can be to teach someone yoga and what a noble and selfless job it is. I am grateful and proud to have trained with Tribe and appreciate the continued support that this roll has given me – Liza Mahar(USA)

Lizar has since joined the Tribe Teaching Team and teaches Asana, anatomy, chanting and other subjects on level 1 and level 2 trainings
