Find Clarity & Confidence as a Teacher

“When you learn, teach, when you get, give.”
- Maya Angelou

Mentoring with my teachers (yoga and bodywork) over the years has been an invaluable part of my journey and has helped me to find my voice along with providing guidance and support when I’ve faced the inevitable challenges and edges that teaching, and life, can bring. It continues to be an important part of my path, and I hope to share the same with teachers who are new to the game and looking for that one on one support that can bring illumination and clarity in one’s teaching path.

My mentorship program is for yoga teachers who want to tune into their own voice and deepen their fundamental teaching and business skills as a yoga teacher. This relationship was how yoga was traditionally passed down & can be a great support, especially when starting out in the world of teaching yoga. Each mentorship relationship is customized depending on where each student is at in their personal practice or teaching.

“Mentors and apprentices are partners in an ancient human dance, and one of teaching's great rewards is the daily chance it gives us to get back on the dance floor.
It is the dance of the spiraling generations, in which the old empower the young with their experience and the young empower the old with new life,
reweaving the fabric of the human community as they touch and turn.”
- Parker Palmer
