Summer Solstice Workshop – June 2022

Mentoring Programme-5

"I was surprised and delighted by how much practice we did - loved the embodiment bits, they are so powerful and revealing. Both leaders are wonderfully empathetic, kind and successfully created a safe space. I find talking about personal stuff on zoom challenging (far harder than in person), yet I felt at ease and suitably supported to do so. Thanks both. ♥️🙏"

J.R Attendee, Mentoring with Jane & Julia, January 2022

Key Information:

Date: Wed 15 June.   Time: 1230-1430 BST    Venue: Zoom.  Cost: £35

June Session:

We will be celebrating summer equinox with an opportunity to look back over the last 6 months and to plan for the future.  As always we will be using embodiment techniques and yoga as part of this session.

As a yoga teacher & movement and breathwork professional would you love to feel:

  • connected and supported
  • sure where to turn with business questions
  • able to deal with the challenges of balancing work & finances with family & friends and self care

Connecting with other teachers has been a lifeline for us and mentoring is the perfect way to create a space for meaningful relationships and space to unravel the challenges of being a sole practitioner.

Mentoring & supervision is integral to so much therapeutic work and we have found that giving ourselves this support has been essential in not reaching burn out - an all too common problem for yoga teachers and therapists like us who choose to hold space for others.

The aim of this group is to provide you with:

  • clarity to realise your aims and objectives as a yoga teacher, therapist or embodiment professional
  • a space where you can address specific concerns about business practice
  • strategies for sustaining your yoga practice & business to prevent burn out
  • the tools for creating the classes that nurture and enhance your experience of teaching and practice

We are inviting you to join monthly mentoring sessions to address what is coming up for you as a yoga teacher.  This could range from teaching challenges, balancing work with other commitments, business challenges & difficulties within the class setting.  You may be looking to work in a particular niche.  The sessions will be embodied and will involve building skills you can take into your working life.  It is a responsive and interactive experience which will also build your own mentoring, listening & embodiment skills.

This group will give you a community you can rely on and support and guidance from two experienced teachers.

Numbers will be capped at 12 to ensure personal attention from both myself and Jane.

The sessions will take place on zoom. There will also be an additional commitment of creating and maintaining a listening partnership throughout the duration of the 6 months mentoring programme.

Please do contact info@yogateachersforum.org if you would like to attend and would like to pay by monthly instalments or are experiencing financial hardship.

Mentoring & peer support has made a huge difference to our lives a a yoga teacher.  We look forward to welcoming you into this circle of support.
