Having a mentor is an integral part of your development as a yoga teacher. Whether you have been teaching for years or are just getting started, it’s valuable to draw on the experience and support of mentors from whom you can learn and grow. Our unique mentorship program will help you feel more inspired as you explore, define and refine what it is that truly lights you up about teaching yoga.
This 50-hour program consists of 10 weeknight workshops. Each gathering will begin with an asana practice that is open to the public. Afterwards, mentorship participants will stay for discussion and inquiry. We will explore yoga through the practices of asana, posture clinics, pranayama, meditation, Classical and Tantric philosophy, and personal reflection.
In addition to participating in the 10-week session, you will be partnered with one of Inspired Yoga Institute’s senior faculty. Your mentor will connect with you through Zoom or FaceTime to explore your unique interests and ideas to move forward on your path in ways that inspire your growth as a yoga teacher. To this end, you will complete a comprehensive questionnaire and you and your mentor will have the opportunity to connect and discuss your teaching ideas and desires together.
During the mentorship program, an Inspired faculty member may also attend one of your classes and offer you supportive feedback on what you are already doing well and what your areas of growth are. These reflections will be made with your individual teaching goals in mind.
Your mentor will also help you develop a plan to move forward and will check in with you each week by email to discuss your accomplishments and challenges. Before you complete your mentorship with Inspired Yoga Institute, you will have a final one-to-one session to wrap things up and discuss next steps.
This 50-Hour Teacher Mentorship program is a required part of the curriculum for those who are enrolled in the 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training. Certified yoga teachers can also attend this program to support them on their teaching paths.
What to Expect
You will receive one-on-one yoga coaching from one of our senior faculty members as well as peer support. Each week you will have the opportunity to either practice, assist or observe a yoga class. Each weekly class is followed by a group discussion where you will have opportunities to ask questions and offer reflections on all aspects of the teaching experience.
Key Topics Covered
Each week we will focus on a key subject area and integrates multiple facets of well-rounded yoga teaching. Our explorations will be embodied through asana practice, group discussion and personal inquiry. Topics include:
Each week, one of our senior faculty members will lead a 90-minute practice that is open to the public so that you have the opportunity to practice, observe and assist in a realist learning environment.
We learn by watching. You will have the opportunity to observe one or more classes through the lens of the art and science of teaching as well as strategies and techniques that are relevant to your growing edge as a teacher.
Assisting & Adjusting:
You will work with the senior teacher to offer assistance and adjustments during one or more of the classes within the mentorship program.
We want to know what your dreams and frustrations are when it comes to your teaching journey. To that end, you will complete a comprehensive questionnaire so we can get to know you and support you the best way possible.
We want to support you as the unique teacher you are! Both at the beginning and end of the program, you will meet online with your Inspired mentor to discuss your desires and growing edge as a yoga teacher.
Weekly Accountability Check-in:
We grow faster when we put our thoughts into action! Each week during the program, you will send an email to your mentor to update the actions you have taken to progress towards your goals.
