Lynn Whitlow’ s role as a lecturer in our Teacher Training is to make a smooth transition in between the on-site training curriculum and trainees return to their home studios, where they will start their work with their mentors. Lynn is going to lecture for the first 5 days of the Home studio curriculum.

Her lectures will be split in two parts. First will be theory, where she will introduce in depth 9 aspects of the teachers’ skills (see below) and second is interactive application of the new tools that studio owners will be then using during the first mock classes with their trainees.
