The Bare Bones Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program will support new and experienced teachers by providing specific modules that address common teaching challenges. Focused primarily on supporting teachers after completion of a formal Teacher Training program (although several modules are excellent for those that have yet to start a program), it is designed to support teachers in a highly customized, personal way. Teachers can select modules that provide training on a specific topic(s) and can also consider ongoing support through monthly or hourly mentoring around topics of their choosing.
As the yoga industry continues to grow, the proliferation of yoga training programs grows exponentially. While the increase provides more options, it makes the selection of a training program more challenging for aspiring teachers. Also, as studios work to meet the requirements of Yoga Alliance’s standards for 200 and 500 HR registered programs, time within these programs which is devoted to both the practical and more “hands-on” teaching topics is often skipped, either due to class size or time availability.
The goal of the Bare Bones Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program is to support new, would-be and experienced teachers with a combination of real life, practical modules on several different topics as well as modules that includes hands-on training and feedback to help you grow as a teacher. Several business modules are also included to help you navigate the increasingly complex yoga industry. Modules on teaching several specialty types of yoga, like Children and Family Yoga, are also included to provide support and basic training around these more customized programs.
Because the program is one-on-one and includes the option of monthly or hourly mentorship about topics of your choosing, it is a unique and highly personalized way to support teachers in their path and growth as a teacher.
Hours spent completing training modules can be applied towards CEU requirements for either the 200 Hour or 500 Hour level of registration with Yoga Alliance.
Selecting a Yoga Teacher Training program that is right for You
** This module is done over the course of 15 hours and done in sections, as noted above, in the order as noted. The course also includes two textbooks, “Anatomy of Movement” and “Yoga Anatomy.”
** Flexibility exists in how these modules are presented. It can be purchased as one module for one person or set up as a program taken by two people, splitting the cost. The module can also be divided into several sections, with an individual payment for each section. For any of these options, a special invoice will be generated (versus paying via the Pay Pal link below)
In addition to, or instead of, individual modules, some individuals may choose to select the option of having monthly support. This provides the individual with the option to present questions for support on an “as-needed” basis. If one of the questions would lend itself to an existing module, that module will be presented at a discounted rate. Monthly mentorship support is provided via email and phone only; in-person mentorship sessions would be charged at an hourly fee.
Return messages via phone or email will be made within 24 hours of receipt, if not sooner.
Hours above 5 hours per month will be charged at the hourly rate (see below).
For those individuals who do not anticipate needing ongoing support or who are unsure of how much support they may need, or have a specific topic of their choosing, an hourly program may be a useful option. Hourly support is at an hourly rate. This support is provided via email, phone or in person.
