Mentorship Program For Yoga Teachers

 

The mentorship program is for yoga teachers who want to tune into their own brave heart, unearth voice, and deepen their ability to hold space+ connect to their students. It is also for teachers who want to get clearer on their purpose for teaching, who their squad is (target audience), as well as how to keep the work and hustle- the business of it all- sacred.

About

 

Octavia’s mentorship program based at Sacred Chill {West} provides a unique experience in continuing education. Over the course of three months, you will be guided through an in-depth study of asana and/or meditation practice, teaching skills and practical applications to launch or grow your teaching practice and career.

IF YOU…

Are genuinely excited about the professional path as a yoga teacher (and are sensing that… no… this isn’t easier” than my day job)

IF YOU…

Wish to find your voice and teach from a more authentic space while honoring this ancient practice with integrity and discipline

IF YOU…

Are committed to investing in ongoing learning and education

THEN READ ON…

The program is made up of the following components:

Private Mentorship Sessions

You will meet with your mentor twice per month for a 75-minute discussion + practice session. These sessions will be structured to discover and delve into your vision for your work, goals, objectives, and to discuss your progress. You will also be given assignments relevant to your goals and objectives.

Practice

Over the course of three months, you are required to practice at least 4 times with your mentor at Sacred Chill West. Classes are covered in the price of the program.

Observation / Assist

You will observe your mentor’s class, circle, or workshop at least 3 times.

Teach+ create the full experience

In the final month you will have an opportunity to teach at least two full-length classes. In one, your mentor will be a student. In the other, your mentor will observe and provide feedback.

“Mentoring is a mutuality that requires more than meeting the right teacher: the teacher must meet the right student.”

Personal Study

Your three month mentorship is an opportunity to study yourself on and off of the mat. To notice where there is resonance. To notice what ignites you. You will be given reading; writing, and actionable steps to take that directly support your vision, goals, and objectives.

Final Project

Every thing we do will be to support your vision and making it happen whether that is adding classes to your schedule, landing a private client, creating a workshop, a retreat, and more!

Your program will be created specifically to meet your needs+objectives.

The basic framework we will work with is as follows:

MONTH 1

Take the seat- Teaching as a Practice: Methods & Pedagogy, Voice, Connection and Presence

MONTH 2

Dhristi- Point your arrow with purpose: Your why”, your who, your what.

MONTH 3

Deep in the work- Align+ Refine.

BEYOND

The Dance of the Teacher- Flow and Be Still.

A special note from Octavia Raheem

The first person that I did the work that is now Brave Heart/Sacred Hustle with was my dear friend and teaching colleague Richard Bowen. It was a fluid and dynamic exchange of teaching and learning. Giving and receiving. Failing and succeeding. Discomfort and ease.

Richard passed away in March 2017.

I offer this to continue the work and connection that was ours. I offer this work for myself and our community to grow deep…sludge down in the mud to unearth the roots to what links us. I offer this work for us to continue to reach toward the light through our practice and time together.

I will donate 5% of what I earn from my work as a mentor in 2018 to Cultivate Union in order to support a scholarship in Richard’s honor focused on insuring that #blackboysdo have opportunities to connect to their wholeness and possibility through Yoga Teacher Training.
