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 65-hour program consists of 8 weeknight workshops. Each gathering will include 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 8-weekly sessions, we will connect on 4 separate Saturdays that will include a seminar on a particular aspect of the art of teaching yoga as well as time for peer teaching and group discussion.
To make sure that we explore what is most important to you, you will be partnered with one of Inspired Yoga Institute’s senior faculty. Your faculty mentor will connect with you through Zoom or FaceTime to explore your unique interests and ideas to help you move forward on your path in ways that inspires your growth as a yoga teacher.
What to Expect
You will receive 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:
