As a yoga teacher, you are embarking on an amazing journey of learning and giving. While you have a completed 200 hour YTT, there is more to learn. Utilizing a mentorship will hopefully help you to build the skills you need to teach well. This program is here to build knowledge and confidence, it is here to offer connection, cohesion, development and opportunity.
Please note that this mentoring program is a gift, there is no money exchanged for services and there is no guaranteed outcome.
At its core, mentoring enables individuals the benefit of a caring supportive person who assures them that they are not alone. A mentor helps the mentee navigate challenges. A mentor helps the mentee to realize they matter, and while they may be new to teaching, they have something important to offer. Your mentor will help you find your gifts while giving you more!
EXPERIENCE and the ability to TEACH. As a mentor teaches they learn and it is an amazing and fun journey. Only Senior teachers are able to be mentors. Your mentor will do the following:
A person understanding that their teaching journey takes more than 200 hours and can invest both the time and effort required to become an above average yoga teacher.
Your program will be a result of what you put into it (everyone will be different).
Eagerness, willingness and INITIATIVE! The following is expected of a mentee:
Progress not perfection! You are working toward getting better, and truly making strides toward knowing yourself and your journey better. You are doing this to learn your strengths and improve your weaknesses (we all have them!). You should design a goal with your mentor after you get to know each other and take on one goal at a time. Personal success does not have a dollar sign or a job associated with it, unless that is your goal!
This is your mentor’s, your’s and Tovami Yoga’s decision collaboratively. Because this is a gift, there is no duration as everyone learns differently. Under this understanding, it is important to stay in close communication and stay open with the process. Everyone must remain sensitive to each other’s time and availability.
Constant communication between the mentor and mentee Monthly emails keeping you, your mentor and me apprised of your progress, this should be done by the mentee and followed up by the mentor. No outside communication involving any kind of criticism that is not meant to help the mentee to reach their goal. All communication must be helpful and tactful for all involved.
This mentorship program is open ONLY to individual’s invested and participating at Tovami Yoga in a capacity approved upon by the studio.
If this is your goal, let it be known, this will not be assumed. We offer opportunities, such as team teaching, Community Classes and other opportunity for you to begin teaching your own classes.
To teach in any capacity at the studio you must submit the following:
Much luck and love on your journey!!
