Yoga Teacher Mentorship
with Shannon Ball
After completing a 200-hr teacher training program, it is common to feel the need for refinement in your teaching skills. Be it in your cueing; knowledge of alignment, modifications and sequencing; and, I feel most important, the ability to hold presence while relaying clear, actionable cues to what is often a diverse audience.
I have designed this mentoring program to work with an intimate group of instructors to continue on your personal and professional development into an excellent yoga teacher.
Our work will include:
Using the system of dissecting a pose and compiling a master list, we will analyze and refine sequencing
Clarify your language for cueing and alignment while maintaining presence
Incorporate spirit into your teaching in a way that is real for you.
Learn how to teach to different levels
Building your classes and finding “your people”
Continue to fill your own cup with practice and spiritual nourishment
Business ideas and guidance as you build your practice
Want to do this thing?
After you have completed a short written assignment as well as an interview with me, so I can assess what your needs and desires are for our time together:
Our group will meet for 3 hours at an agreed upon time and week-day (workable for all participants) every other week for 12 weeks.
Each time we meet you will receive:
A practice led by me or a colleague for your own personal practice and nourishment (spiritual and emotional–although I’m always happy to feed you:)) These practices will also include a written sequence of the class and alignment refinement. We will use each class as our springboard to look at sequencing skills.
A specific assignment both as a group and an assignment from me that is specifically designed for you and your growth
I will observe you teaching in one of your existing classes or in a class we arrange and will provide personal and individual coaching and feedback. After an agreed upon time I will observe your teaching a second time and give more feedback and space for refinement.
Continuing Education Credits:
I am so happy to say these credit hours will go towards your 300-hour teacher training.
You will receive a total of 30 credit hours for classroom and outside study work.
