Lindsay Buteau

A little bit about Lindsay's path to instructing

I started a teacher training program in 2014 only to deepen my practice. After about a year, I found that the desire and poise to teach came quite naturally to me, so I shifted my focus from just observing to becoming an active participant. From there I began assisting my mentor in class, and teaching a group of finance co-workers at IDEXX, as well as teaching many family and friends.

 

Throughout 2017 I dedicated several hours a week studying for assessment. The assessment itself is a two-to-three-day endeavor. This involves a 30-minute pranayama demonstration (breath work), a two-and-a-half-hour asana demonstration, and a two-hour written examination that tested techniques of poses, knowledge of reading required from philosophical and practical texts, and knowledge on how to provide a safe environment and modifications for students with basic physical issues (knee pain, injury, pregnancy, etc.).

 

Finally, candidates are given six poses to teach to a group of volunteer students in a 40-minute time frame. This allows the assessors to watch the candidate address a class, give a demonstration of poses, and teach the poses in an acceptable manner.
