Mentorship: Take your teaching to the next level
In this personalized three month program, you receive one-on-one attention from an experienced teacher who will guide you through expanding your offerings and creating an experience for your students that is unique to you. Together we explore how to make the jump from new to seasoned teacher through the following common stumbling blocks for new teachers:
- How DO you get students to choose your class in a sea of yoga teachers, fill your classes, and keep your offerings fresh and innovative?
- How DO you draw your students back time and time again, even if you’re teaching a similar style of class as other teachers in the area?
- How do you land teaching gigs, create interesting classes, and continue to learn, stay inspired and excited, and grow your teaching?
- How do you make your class memorable and impactful upon your students so they’re recommending it and bringing friends?
- How do you create powerful workshops and offerings beyond your weekly classes so you can leverage and increase your income?
- How do you write descriptions for your classes, retreats, and workshops that are authentic to you and in your own voice so that your offerings are fresh and exciting, but not the same old thing other teachers are doing by the tenfold?
From ancient times, the practice of yoga and yoga philosophy have been passed down from teacher to teacher through discussion and conversation. Mentorship is a powerful way to grow your expertise, whether you have dreams of teaching full time, or just love your craft and want to be the best possible teacher you can be.
Based on the your needs and interests topics may include: Sequencing, alignment and teaching to all body types, hands-on assisting, mastering your observation skills, creating workshops, finding your own voice, effective cueing, and developing dharma talks.
Other topics may include: cultivating a following, sharing your gifts, manifesting your goals and vision, leadership, marketing, business development, retreat development, building an online presence, and more.
