This mentorship program addresses the hesitancy some yoga teachers experience upon graduating from 200-hour teaching programs into an increasingly varied and (let's be honest) competitive yoga teaching landscape. This is the time to get clear about who you are as a teacher, what you offer, and to whom. Don't just continue to sample classes and teachers as you dip your toe into teaching. Purposefully accelerate the development of your presence, voice, and niche.
Through the Yoga Teacher Incubator, you will:
Establish a teaching niche, develop a unique voice, learn to hold space, create signature openings and closings
Figure out where you shine: with large or small groups in studios, individuals in homes, workshops, online, etc.
Gain a broader view of the yoga landscape, including lineages and methods, their histories and current expressions
Uncover your aspirations and determine next steps, including advanced trainings that will help you on your path
Three 90-minute, in-person sessions for practice teaching (5 hours)
Four to five class observations, including student check-in period (10 hours)
Five 60-minute coaching calls to discuss observations, lifestyle, goals (5 hours)
Meditation (mindfulness and other techniques) as part of your sessions and calls
Assigned readings, videos, podcasts, etc. to further expand your knowledge base
Help establishing an appropriate and consistent home yoga/meditation practice
The program is flexible: You choose which classes of mine to observe and schedule your coaching calls from my calendar at convenient times. You may stretch out the process over 3-6 months, so you can integrate what you learn into teaching and life as you go.
Potential Follow-Up Opportunities:
Assist with workshops
Help develop a class series
Participate in online course development
I encourage you to take this journey. I've realized that I have as much to learn from the people I mentor as they have to learn from me, and that the entire process, from start to finish, is a blast!
