December 4th – 6th, 2020: Presentation Skills and Workshop Design for Yoga Professionals


“This was the best workshop I have done in years. This course had an immediate impact on my business, my confidence and my ability to communicate my message.  Lucy is incredible.” Katie Dutton, All Souls Yoga

A specialised experiential skill development workshop

As a yoga teacher or a yoga therapist, you may be asked to give a presentation about what you do, speak at a conference, or to provide short courses on topics in which you have expertise. Or, you may decide that you want to start offering retreat or workshops to your students or to train other yoga teachers and therapists.

If so, Presentation Skills and Workshop Design will provide all the information that is required to plan, organise and professionally deliver your presentations or workshops. As a result of attending this workshop you will learn ways to shorten your preparation time, tailor your content, genuinely engage with your various audiences and facilitate the learning process.

About the Program

This will be a highly participatory program where you will be introduced to tried-and-tested planning tools for presentation and workshop design. There will be role play of presentations to use these organisational tools and specific communication skills practised to enhance your presentation delivery. And finally, communication fundamentals will be discussed to make sure that everything you share is tailored to the specific group with whom you are working.

Because this is a “learn by doing” workshop the numbers will be limited to only six people. This will ensure that there is enough time for true skill development and evolution, as well as the opportunity to receive personalized feedback.

What past participants say

“Thank you Lucy for sharing your knowledge, inspiring us and teaching us how to present. Loved how interactive the workshop was and that it was an intimate group.  Thank you Lucy for a fabulous workshop, it was incredible to see how everyone improved over the weekend. Highly recommend for anyone who is presenting in front of people, such great tips were shared.” Tara

“The presentation and communication workshop was fantastic. Lucy’s expertise consisting of both her work and life history allowed for a space in which each participant was seen, supported, challenged and encouraged. Lucy’s enthusiasm, passion and humour provided a safe and nurturing environment … what for me felt impossible for a lifetime now feels possible! This is a workshop I will never forget and I feel exceptionally grateful to have enrolled in.”  Anna Phillips

“Thank you Lucy for this workshop. It has taken my confidence to a new level. You have given me an understanding of the design process involved in creating a workshop without overwhelm and, the presentation skills workshop to be able to present with confidence. The growth in myself and what I could see in other participants in just a few days was incredible. Thanks to not only your depth of knowledge and experience, but holding a safe space for us to experiment.  I am very grateful for this experience.” Andrea Hamblin 

This was the best workshop I have done in years. 2 days, just 2 days with Lucy Karnani and I had a measurable, immediate impact on my business, my confidence and my ability to communicate my message.  Lucy is incredible.  She guides and supports you to discover and hone your strengths as she shares her wisdom in an incredibly practical, insightful and engaging way.  This experiential skill development workshop goes well beyond handing over a template for creating your own workshop and delivers an experience which has you exploring your communication and presentation strengths and opportunities to grow and learn. Offer all you have to this experience and you will not be sorry.” Katie Dutton, All Souls Yoga

“After many years of yoga study and teaching, I found my knowledge was extensive, but I needed structure to pull it all together for effective delivery. I had begun teaching workshops & realised it was very different to teaching yoga classes. This workshop was everything I wanted. It gave me planning and delivery maps & skills to follow, there was plenty of practice presenting, we covered many useful topics and the presenter, Lucy, was highly experienced in this field. And the hosts were very warm and welcoming. Can highly recommend it.” Jane, Jindabyne Yoga Shala
