Mentoring for Yoga Teachers
Deepen and solidify your yoga teaching practice - Sussex & Worldwide!
The 200 hour yoga teacher training course is just the beginning of the journey. It gives you the tools to get started but often it can leave you wondering ‘what next’ and ‘how do I find students, plan classes, promote myself, manage a business…’ These are all questions we help you answer on our yoga teacher mentoring programme. As professionals it is important that we continue to learn once we have completed an initial teacher training. As a CEP with Yoga Alliance, our mentoring programme also offers you 20 hours CPD points.
Nathalie has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 15 years, runs a successful yoga teacher training course and is a qualified teacher in education. Putting all of this together, she passionately supports yoga teachers as they find their way along their own path. We all need support, especially as we start out on a new journey. There’s no need to go it alone!
What makes our Yoga Teacher Mentoring Programme so special?
Nathalie is completely dedicated to supporting other teachers to grow and thrive. When she started out on the path of teaching yoga she encountered a lot of negativity and self doubt, but she has proved others (and herself) wrong! Being able to share the confidence and experience she has gained from her journey with others in an honest and supportive way is fundamental to our mentoring programme.
“I have taught in so many different places, to such a range of students. This was partly borne out of necessity and partly curiosity, but it has given me so much experience to share. If I can help just one other teacher develop a practice they love, which in turn ripples out to their students, then I will feel that I’ve succeeded!”
How does it work?
Our mentoring programme can be taken face to face in West Sussex or online, across a minimum of 6 months. We will cover the following key areas:
Planning and sequencing classes with integrity - being true to yourself as a teacher & to the roots of yoga
Adjusting, assisting and ethics - when, how and why do we adjust our students
Yoga, healthcare & mental health - when yoga can help and what are our limits
Common Yoga injuries and how they can be prevented in our students and us - care & self care, anatomy & physiology
Business, marketing and money - the reality of running a yoga ‘business’
What draws individuals to yoga - finding your niche and action planning for the future
Finding your unique offering - exploring through coaching and self enquiry
The programme takes the shape of monthly 1:1 mentoring sessions which are 60 minutes each. These can either be via Zoom or face to face in Rustington, West Sussex. Whilst the sessions will be guided by your personal interests and needs, we will cover the specific areas of teaching yoga as set out above, which we believe are integral to helping you develop as a teacher. The mentoring sessions are accompanied by a comprehensive and interactive journal that you can work through at your own pace. You will be given homework simply to encourage you to ask yourself questions, discover your own values, set goals and work out how you can make them a reality. Nathalie will be there to facilitate this, and is on hand through email / text / phone as much as you need in order to personally support you.
Alongside the mentoring sessions, Nathalie runs regular workshops for yoga teachers, which you will receive a 20% discount for. Whilst it’s not mandatory to attend any workshops we find it can really complement the mentoring, helping you to put into practice some of what you are learning.
