Mentorship Program

So, you are now certified as a yoga teacher! Now what? You may be feeling unsettled still (lacking confidence), or perhaps you are not sure you are ready to teach, or maybe you just need a few more tools to better your skills as a yoga teacher.

Our Chrysalis Yoga Mentorship program is designed to help you further your skills as a yoga teacher. It is an opportunity for you to learn to be comfortable in being in the seat of a yoga teacher, to work one on one with an experienced yoga teacher (your mentor), to ask questions and receive guidance specific to you and your needs.

How it Works:

Over the course of 3 months, you will work closely with your mentor, who will guide you and make recommendations specific to you and your needs.

Private Mentorship Sessions: 

You will meet with your mentor once a week for a discussion session. Your goals, fears, successes and challenges will be discussed, as well as your progress. Your mentor will give you specific assignments according to your needs.

Yoga Practice:  

You are required to practice a minimum of 2 yoga classes a week at Chrysalis, either with your mentor and/or with a teacher that your mentor will recommend. You will receive unlimited yoga at Chrysalis Yoga for the duration of your mentorship program.

Assisting Yoga Classes:  

On a weekly basis you will assist your mentor’s class at Chrysalis and have a brief discussion afterwards to answer any questions that may have arisen regarding sequencing, assisting, etc. If your mentor feels you are ready, your mentor will ask you to lead a pose or two.

Practice Teaching:  

Towards the end of the program, you will have an opportunity to teach a minimum of 2 one-hour “Featured Teacher” classes. Your mentor will observe a minimum of 1 of your classes and provide feedback.

Personal Study:  

Your mentor will assign reading and writing assignments, tailored to your personal intentions and what your mentor feels is appropriate for you and your teaching journey.


Your Mentor 

We have a diverse range of teachers with different styles and areas of interest. All of our mentors are experienced in yoga and in teaching yoga. They have been through many of your fears, and have lots of wisdom and stories to share.

We will ask you to list 2-3 mentors in order of preference and will check with your mentor(s) of choice for availability. Requests will also be evaluated based on your needs/goals to pair you up with a mentor that will best serve you.
