Yoga Mentoring and Teacher Support
“The mastery of yoga must not be measured simply by the ability to master the techniques…but how it influences our day to day living, how it enhances our relationships, and how it promotes clarity and peace of mind.” — TKV Desikachar
I believe it takes a minimum of 10 years of Yoga teaching to learn how to teach besides having a dedicated personal Yoga and meditation practice. I am happy to help anyone along their path and as one of my teachers in India said, we should share and teach what we know otherwise we are no better than thieves. I offer my Yoga coaching service to both new and experienced Yoga teachers and students.
I know how it feels not to have a mentor and to feel that you are alone without the guidance of a senior teacher. Are you a new Yoga teacher feeling unsure of yourself? Are you in a teacher training program and intuit that something is missing? Do you need more personal attention? Did you need help with designing a therapeutic class for a specific condition? Call or email with a description of your training or practice and what you hope to gain and we can design a program for YOUR needs.
I offer three paths to mentoring:
- A one time three hour workshop on a topic of your choice is $150. Book three workshops for $125/each three hour workshop.
- Annual mentoring membership: book for 12 months, $1,296.00. One three hour workshop each month at your convenience. Total amount due at first workshop.
- A phone call or Skype session is $75/hour.
What You Get:
I act as your sounding board and mentor. You can ask me anything related to your personal practice or teaching.
Using the skills I’ve developed through 16 years of teaching and my personal practice of 20+ years I will help you work through the things that trip you up. My approach is as down to earth and no-nonsense as it is spiritual and intuitive, but know that I may tell you things that I think you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear.
I believe in quality, not quantity. In my Yoga tradition the student studies with one teacher for years, just as Krishnamacharya learned from Ramamohan Brahmachari and Desikachar learned from his father. In the "old school" Yoga way it is very important for a Yoga practitioner to choose a teacher who can guide them properly -- a teacher who has been practicing for many years and who has come from a lineage.

What people believe...
“This would refreshingly benefit the way yoga is now being “mentored” in the USA. One on one, really and truly working with the student of yoga. Real mentoring. The real deal!”
“There is so much I am not learning in my yoga teacher training program I don’t even know where to start. If I hadn’t had you as my first teacher I don’t think I would be aware of how much this program is lacking. Thank you!”
