Mentoring for Yoga Teachers
As a yoga teacher, you may feel a mixture of eagerness, uncertainty, and overwhelm.
Teacher training courses rarely provide the complete skill set to step into a role of such great responsibility. Perhaps you’re feeling it?
Know that you’re not alone.
Teacher training is a big financial investment, and without someone guiding you in daily life, you may easily feel lost or unclear.
Perhaps like you, I craved more depth from this path. I wanted to always feel a great sense of integrity and impact when sharing the wisdom of yoga within my community.
The traditional method of learning – Guru Shisha Parampara – is rare and difficult to have access to in our modern life. It can be a massive weight figuring out which way to turn and who to trust.
This unique mentorship container is an opportunity for you to receive direct support and guidance any time, on any day, over the course of four weeks together. The container offers one-on-one personalised coaching, via voice and text messages using the Telegram app (free), to help you evolve more quickly with this purposeful work.

We learn much on teacher trainings, and we can easily struggle to assimilate it all.
Working with a mentor will activate a more masterful evolution of your skills, such as:
Dialogue and communication, developing your unique offerings beyond group classes, appropriate assisting and adjusting, effective sequencing, cultivating a healthy home practice, building confidence in pranayama, methodology for working one-on-one privately with students, teaching to large groups, effective integration of Ayurveda, business and marketing, ethics, sorting your finances, and developing one’s place within the community.
You may have questions that remain unanswered…
- How do I gain my first teaching position?
- Should I teach for free?
- How much should I earn per class?
- How do I best approach my local studio/s for work?
- How do I best market myself?
- How do I develop my ‘voice’, better dialogue, and my uniqueness?
- What resources can help me along my teaching journey?
- How can I consistently create good class sequences?
- Do I need a website? A Facebook page?
- How can I promote myself, without seeming egotistical or generic?
- What further training should I look into to further my skills?
- What should I do if… a student leaves my class? a student gets injured in my class? a student complains?
- How to organise special events, like workshops, courses, retreats, etc?
- Should I register with a membership body? Get insurance? What company is best?
- How do I make money doing what I love?
- Should I quit my ‘day job’?
- My family does not support my desire to teach. What should I do?

A mentoring container is a joining of forces to create a continually high standard of yoga teachers and maintain integrity of the tradition.
After making your payment, you will be sent an online form so I can uncover your current needs, biggest challenges, and areas of focus. This way I will know how best to serve you as we begin.
Mentoring is for you if:
You desire receiving objective feedback and direction
You’re self led and accountable
You’re seeking a safe space to ask any and all questions whenever needed
You are committed to finding pockets of time in your life to take the steps and make an impact
You value and respect tradition and know yoga is a system far beyond the postures
You love to immerse in study and learning all facets of the yoga tradition
You know true success and impact within the community isn’t defined by your social media presence or number of followers
You know teaching yoga can enhance other streams of work you’re involved in, and that you do not necessarily need to “quit your day job”.
Mentoring is NOT for you if:
You’re inconsistent and are not committed to Yoga in the long term
Your main priority is how to get more classes and more students because numbers feel validating
You think a senior and successful teacher is someone who has a big social media presence and following
You have no genuine interest pranayama, meditation, or other facets of the yoga tradition
You dread your current career or job and feel yoga teaching would be a cool replacement
You’re unable to honour your financial commitment
You no longer want to study yoga and just want to teach it
You only want to teach what’s popular and mainstream
