Our yoga teacher mentorship programme is the tool you need if you want to take your teaching and personal practice to the next level. Working with me as your yoga mentor will help you to become the yogi you want to be, enhancing your own practice and your teaching and business skills. Over the past eight years my yoga teacher mentoring skills have helped yoga teachers like you succeed. Whether you are starting out on your teacher training programme of whether you are an experienced teacher working with me as your yoga mentor will help you to develop your skills. As your yoga mentor we can help you turn your passion into a viable business.

We offer yoga teacher mentorship programmes for yogis wherever you are on your yoga journey, as a trainee teacher, as a newly qualified teacher or as an experienced professional I can help you to achieve your goals. Working with me you will benefit from the experience I have gained over the past 25 years of daily yoga practice and teaching.

A recent report suggests that only 29% of yoga teachers make their living teaching full time, with most teachers offering less than 10 classes a week. Making a decent living and maintaining an acceptable work life blend is hard for yoga teachers. More than 61% of teachers say they struggle to find enough students and 71% believe yoga is saturated in their area, making it difficult to compete with existing teachers. And bear in mind that there are two people currently enrolled on a teacher training programme for every currently active teacher offering classes, meaning that there are more people starting to teach each and every month.

So what do you need to do to be the stand out teacher in your area? Having a yoga mentor can help you achieve the success that you want. Having the support that you need from an experienced yoga mentor and coach allows you to maximise your career. Learning how to write a business plan, how to market your yoga teaching and how to run a business are all skills that can easily be learned. Our mentoring for yoga teachers programme will help you acquire these and many more skills, and help you on your journey to becoming a success.

I’ve been teaching yoga full time for 20 years and have run successful yoga studios around the world. Yoga isn’t just my career; it’s my life. Being a successful teacher requires hard work, dedication and continuous learning by working with the best teachers. Are you ready to start practicing what you preach?
