Our mentorship for yoga teachers programme is the tool you need if you want to take your teaching and personal practice to the next level. Whether you want to enhance your own practice, develop new teaching sequences, learn how to teach successful group classes, run private yoga classes or want help getting started running your business, your social media campaigns and your web presence we can help you succeed.

We offer 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 15% of people who complete a yoga teacher-training course actually teach yoga full time and that on average most people quit teaching within three years because they can’t make a decent living and maintain an acceptable work life blend.

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?

You can benefit from our Yoga teacher mentoring programme.

Mentoring is suitable for yoga teachers of all levels and all styles; whether you are just starting out or if you have been teaching for many years. You can be from any tradition, teaching style, or training.

  • Uncover your own authentic teaching voice

  • Develop advanced teaching techniques

  • Receive the support of a senior yoga teacher

  • Build the confidence to command a room and create a safe environment

  • Learn tools to teach with integrity

  • Access my knowledge gained over 25 years’ daily yoga practice, and more than 20 years of full time teaching experience.
