Some of the concerns I see and hear in the yoga teaching community are:

  • “Why am I selling out?” – Not teaching what is really present in your heart, but what is popular
  • “I feel Invisible.” – Not attracting students into your class
  • “I am so disheartened.” – Students are not returning to your class
  • “Workshop? How?” – You have  great offering but not sure how to implement it
  • “I am a burned out.” – How a yogi becomes burned out on teaching and what turns to take
  • “I am just lost and uninspired.” – Using the tools of processing

What may have been missing from your training is the yoga of the ancient sages. By learning this aspect, your own spirit as well as your teachings will soar. As your mentor, I am here to support and guide you on your teaching journey.  I use tried and true tools that have got me to where I am today as a successful inspired teacher and studio owner.

So here is where I come in:

I desire to serve teachers like you, teach classes that have more {repeat} students, experience personal  transformation and confidently align yourself with what you want to teach. Sessions are catered to you to meet your goals and desires and to help you expand your teaching in a way that there can be no cookie cutter approach. I offer 1 – on – 1 mentoring to teachers like you, where we  get clear about who you want to teach, what you want to teach them, and hone in on your genuine gifts as a teacher {heart-built sustainability}. We work together  so that you get the mentoring and assistance that you need to build a sustainable teaching career.

Prerequisite: Completed RYT program, currently registered with the Yoga Alliance and ability to meet weekly.

Opportunities for teaching an intern class and assisting in classes may be offered.

Please note:

Graduates of Grounded by Yoga have a lifetime of mentor-ship for free (if ever needed). Graduates that also teach at GBY have internship for free (continued therapeutic approaches, specific student concerns, general path questions, etc)

“There has begun to be a real need for ongoing practical and spiritual mentoring and community in the yoga world, in particular for teachers. There are so many teacher trainings taking place currently with less and less activating content – the kind of content needed that empowers a teacher and keeps the fire going. I set up teacher mentoring sessions to provide a space for teachers to come together to discuss what needs have surfaced for them. These are confidential, nurturing sessions during which we discuss everything – from practical advice about running your own business to insecurities around one’s self, from workshops on the art of assisting to the art of holding space….we discuss everything in an informal and nourishing setting.”
