Mentorship

Looking to take your teaching or practice to the next level?

This is the mentorship program for you

Who is this for?

This is for newer teachers and yoga students alike.  Basically, if you love yoga like I do, this is for you.

For teachers, this is a specifically curated experience for you to take your teaching from good to great and really hone in on what it is that is fueling you.  Yoga teacher burnout is a real thing, this program is geared to help keep you inspired so you can do the same for your students.  Coming out of your teacher training and even into the first few years of teaching is an exciting and sometimes stressful time.  This program is designed to keep you on track.  Not just in your personal studies, but to keep you motivated to get out there and share what you’ve learned.  You have a unique voice based on your unique talents and personality.  Let’s work together to bring that out and infuse it into your teaching.  WE need you.

For students, this is for you if you are really into the practice and feel like your 75 minute classes just aren’t getting deep enough into the heart of yoga.  You’re interested in the ‘behind the scenes’ pieces that just don’t get touched on during the physical, asana portion of your practice.  Maybe you’ve flirted with the idea of a 200 hr teacher training program but just aren’t ready to take the plunge, this is for you.

How does it work?

We will meet in person or over skype for 90 minute sessions. The material we cover will be tailored specifically to you. We will have a brief phone or skype meeting first to see what it is that you are looking to get out of the program and from there allow our sessions to evolve towards whatever it is you are desiring most.

The way this will work is a minimum of six sessions covered over a six month period. This will give lots of time to absorb the material and time to do any homework you’ve been given. You could do your sessions once a week, or span it over the course of the six months.  Once your six sessions are complete if you would like to continue on that’s great and we can move to a more fluid format based on need.

Topics can include, but are not limited to; anatomy, sequencing, business of yoga, workshop planning, the art of teaching, assists, the subtle body, philosophy, mythology, meditation, Pilates, theming classes, finding your voice…you name it. We can do a different topic each week or if you really want to dive into something we could spend as many sessions on it as you’d like. So it’s pretty flexible based on what it is you are looking to get out of it.

I will only be taking on 6 people at a time to ensure everyone gets as much as possible out of this.

You can take this on as an individual, or if there is a small group (up to 4) of you that is interested in the same thing you can make up a group. This would count as one person. Ya??

Okay, that’s it.  Message me with any questions and to arrange a time to chat to see if this program is a good fit for you.  shawna.turner@gmail.com
