3 Keys to becoming an Outstanding Teacher

Learn the essential keys to becoming a great teacher, so you’ll teach more, earn more and create a community of loved up customers. Ondine Savage has been a yoga teacher for 18-years, runs her own studio and had other teachers working for her.

She has observed how teachers talk about money, including what they charge for classes, workshops and retreats, and often it’s coming from a scarcity mindset. This event will help to unpack this a little more giving perspective around what it means to value your worth and how to charge appropriately for your services.

About the Presenter

I’m Ondine, a lover of travel, amazing food, great books and of course yoga. I was born in New Zealand and started life as a classical musician, graduating from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Music Performance degree. After dedicating years practicing in confined spaces, I decided to lay down my flute, pack up my bags and head over to the UK to spread my wings.

I then devoted five years of full-time study at the Dharmâlaya Ashram in Granada, Spain. I trained in orthodox and traditional disciplines such as Hatha Yoga, Vyayam Yoga, Vedic Dharma, Ayurveda, Meditation & Vedanta.

Awakened Soul Yoga (formally known as Hatha Yoga Sydney), began when I returned to Australia after spending time learning yoga in Rishikesh, Northern India. It began as a boutique yoga studio in Redfern in 2011, and 13 years later is now an online yoga education sanctuary. I’ve been teaching for 18 years, ten of which have been dedicated to facilitating stunning yoga retreats both nationally within Australia but also internationally in Bali, Tonga and New Zealand.

My teaching comes from a place of deep love and reverence for the practice, but also a desire to support people transform their physical, mental and emotional well being for optimal health and wellness.

I encourage my students to come to their inner wisdom via the different techniques yoga offers; philosophical contemplation, silence, stillness, meditation, breath work, yoga âsana and of course, the immersion of all these disciplines via beautifully crafted yoga retreat experiences designed to uplift, inspire and transform.

I also mentor and support new yoga teachers beginning their teaching journey, to navigate the world of being in business. Learning the ins and outs of running a business and helping them avoid all the common pitfalls and mistakes I made during my career.

I’m now based in Bangalow, in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales.
