Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program

To my fellow yoga teachers:

If you feel drawn to the idea of personal individual mentorship in your work and growth as a teacher, please read on!

Teaching yoga is an investment of your heart, mind, and soul. But you already knew that! This path can be full of questions, challenges, breakthroughs, confusion, growth and bliss – sometimes all in one day’s time. We all need support and guidance especially when we are 1) new to teaching or 2) transitioning to or adding a new role or niche within your teaching (i.e. beginning to teach children, adding meditation instruction, offering private lessons, planning and filling retreats, etc.).

I am ready and eager to help and would love to be your mentor. I have thought long and hard about the structure of this program, and have built it intentionally around tailored one-on-one mentoring. This means we will figure out what YOU want to explore and learn, and proceed with laser-like focus to address your questions and goals. This program also includes a robust day of group-format continued education, but the core mission is private one-on-one work.

I have been a full-time yoga professional for over 11 years. At first that looked like teaching 20 plus classes per week, then a moderate class load in addition to leading 5 or 6 children’s yoga teacher trainings and a couple of retreats per year, and most recently a light class load and organizing and/or leading 10-15 retreats and specialty events per year. I have taught thousands of both adult and children’s classes, in a large variety of settings from living rooms to studios to revocation centers. I have formed a strong community of colleagues whom I trust and adore, and also learned a couple hard lessons from interpersonal situations that didn’t go smoothly. I have created and innovated and taken risks. The results have not always been what I had hoped, but in this work we are all entrepreneurs to some extent, and one of the most important things we need to learn is to brush ourselves off and try again.

This is all to say: Whatever your current goals or struggles are, there is a good chance I have been there – and found a path forward through intuition, determination, and guidance from my own mentors.

Here are just some examples of where we might focus our work:

-Cueing
-Assisting
-Class planning
-Honing your voice or style
-Holding space / strengthening your intuition
-Weaving more yoga philosophy or energy work into your teaching
-Working smarter rather than harder to keep burnout at bay
-Standing out in a saturated field of teachers
-Cultivating a genuine and compelling online presence
-Approaching potential employers / partners, building healthy working relationships, advocating for yourself
-Stepping into a new role or offering with a well-assessed and viable plan

Though I am beyond excited for this one-on-one work, I also highly value creating and maintaining community amongst teachers and facilitating opportunities to connect! To that end, included in any level of this program is a discounted space in my “Yoga Teaching Tune-up Mini-Retreat” – Sunday October 6, 2019, 11:00am-3:00pm in Peabody, MA.

The mini-retreat curriculum will:
1) address the questions and concerns I most commonly hear from fellow teachers
2) include an assisting lab (demonstrations and practice time for a small selection of safe and effective hands-on assists that can be used in all-levels classes).

I have created three levels of mentorship so there are options to fit your schedule and goals. If you are not sure which is the right choice for you, let’s chat!

Notes:
1) I have only 8 mentorship spots available in order to maintain keen focus and presence for each.
2) If you are interested in a mentorship but absolutely cannot attend the mini-retreat on October 6, please reach out to me at checkayoga@gmail.com to discuss.
