Why should you choose me as your mentor?
I’ve spent the past 13 years studying and teaching yoga in two big yoga markets, Chicago and Seattle. I have thousands of hours of practice and teaching under my belt. I have provided mentorship to dozens of new yoga teachers as they finish their teacher training and beyond. I also have my fingers on the pulse of the yoga industry as it continues to evolve. I understand that to make it as a yoga teacher, it will take creativity, focus and drive. I know how to support you as a new teacher as you navigate this unfamiliar and sometimes daunting terrain.
How long is this going to take / how many hours a week will I have to invest to see results?
Expect a time commitment of at least 5 hours a week, including:
Attending one group classes per week. (Seattle/Tacoma area)
Assisting and teaching short sequences in one group class per week
Personal practice with journaling
Building sequences based on Jen’s weekly classes
Exploring anatomy and biomechanics via assigned readings and videos
I just spent all this money on YTT, why do I need a mentor?
The amount of information in a 200 hour teacher training is completely overwhelming. And you are just ONE person in a group of upwards of 20-plus people in some teacher trainings! The odds of getting your personal questions answered are not always in your favor. Not to mention, there is so much information that needs to be covered that there is never enough time to work on teaching skills, refinement of verbal cueing and physical touch. A mentorship will give you the opportunity to get more comfortable in your own skin as a teacher, get all your questions answered and also take your ability to teach group classes and privates to the next level.
I only work with five new teachers over a 90 day period so I can devote maximum time and energy to each one.
