My mentoring journey

PERSONAL GROWTH

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.

I strengthened my teaching and improved my classroom skills, in particular, the use of language and how to create a flow in my instructing. In addition, I learned how to share those aspects of yoga philosophy that touch my heart in a way that is meaningful for others.

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.

What others are saying

Das hoch kompetente Team um Barbra Noh hat uns Feinheiten über das Yogaunterrichten, über Businessansichten und Marketing beigebracht. Das Highlight für mich aber sind die bereichernden Einzelgespräche zwischen mir als Mentee und Barbra als inspirierende Mentorin gewesen. Ihre Empathie und die individuelle liebevolle Betreuung haben mir das deutliche Gefühl gegeben, dass wir zwar ganz unterschiedliche Persönlichkeiten, dennoch trotzdem in ihrem Programm alle an der richtigen Stelle sind.

Liliane, Anusara Inspired Yoga Teacher & Unternehmerin

Working with Barbra supported me a lot in terms of self-knowledge, self-love and the development of my inner voice.
