"The First thing to do in beginning Spiritual Work is to actually possess what we think we possess.
Change comes through responsibility only, never through hope. For when one is responsible, he is not concerned about changing, but about being."
Lee Lozowick ~ Laughter of the Stones
Mentorship is meant to inspire curiosity and wonder.
Energize the spirit to rise in the face of the ever-changing expansion of what you love in life!
An alchemical process and chamber to work with your goals, visions, dreams - with focus and direction and space to explore the resistances.
To harness ones innate true nature, fully.. completely. To be of service with a compassionate awareness, a kindness and a humble gratitude for the gifts we have been given.
Custom designed to facilitate support, fresh perspectives and holding space for self-awareness, self-expression/exploration and experimentation with engaging yogic principles/practices.
Mentorship is for anyone...
For the yoga student and/or lifelong practitioner, mentorship can be the vehicle to inspire passion, light the fire, and sharpen goals as well as a means to understanding how to persevere through obstacles to achieve success and wellness.
Beginner yoga students can benefit by building a foundation of practice and confidence, which then can lead to exploring more public yoga classes or a home practice. Intermediate or advanced students may wish to take their practices to the next level yet require some expertise and direction in the areas in which they want to deepen.
For yoga teachers...
verbal and hands on-assisting
biomechanics and anatomy
subtle systems of the body
multiple class levels
therapeutics and work with injuries
As a yoga teacher, sustaining one’s own practices is key to examining the relationship to self and others. Mentorship is a useful mirror to reflect the areas in which we can grow in and become more fully aware of ourselves. Meditation is an encouraged practice during the mentorship program to feed the digestion.
The program includes ten one hour private sessions as well as email communication which may include submitting class plans/sequences and receiving feedback, homework assignments, study material, meditation, journaling and how to work with food or healthy lifestyle choices. One of the sessions can include coming to observe and give feedback to one of your yoga classes or submit a video of you teaching a yoga class or a private. It is also very useful to attend some of my public yoga classes to help assist or observe and take notes. I encourage you to take as many of my public classes as possible during the mentorship for your own practice and will often use this environment to emphasize teachings we are working on and demonstrate teaching skills that we are practicing together.
