Shine your light
I have designed a yoga teacher mentoring program that will help you discover and embrace your gift as a teacher, crafting your unique message to carry into your classes.
— Barbra Noh, founder of Strength & Grace Yoga
My mentoring journey
Good yoga teaching may seem effortless, but it is in fact the artful fusion and mastery of many different techniques and tools. While we can be knowledgeable and confident in our yoga practice, great teaching requires us to have a connection to our deeper essence and calling.
Teacher training gave me a strong theoretical understanding of teaching but my most significant growth as a yoga teacher occurred during a period of mentoring, personalised guidance and direct feedback.
Reveal your jewels
AND LET THEM SHINE
You will make valuable shifts in your teaching through the mentoring program: I will guide you to discover your unique qualities, to define your core message and to bring your essence into the classroom with authenticity.
The Mentoring Program is also the best way to work with me towards Anusara certification. As required you can book additional time to focus on specific Anusara certification requirements, the written exam and video assessment process.
