The Mentorship Program is a series of three interactive classes for teachers to get direct and compassionate feedback while working hands-on with other teachers. This experience will help to refine teaching instructions, delivery and adjustment skills. For teachers from any basic training interested in improving their directing of posture, movement, breath and awareness to create a deep profound yoga experience.

First class: Scripting and instructing for basic positioning, alignment review, using imagery and metaphor, key areas of “pointing out” for basic poses, pacing and changing emphasis.

Second class: Teaching alignment with movement and breath. Learning to condense instructions and isolate specific alignment gestures linked with breath/movements. Linking instructions that help balance the complimentary actions or see-saws in a pose.

Third class: Working with mixed levels, using modifications and props to enhance teaching. Using props without losing the flow. Concise demonstration. Exploring and interweaving themes, without losing a sense of the whole, feeling the flow, sequencing, and allowing creativity into your teaching.
