Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program

Gain inspiration and a deeper understanding of how to teach a progressive style of yoga.

Build a solid reputation for yourself and stand out in a sea of yoga teachers today.

This program is led by Tatjana Mesar, founder and lead teacher in Dynamic Mindfulness School

and other Dynamic Mindfulness 500-hour RYT teachers.

September 2020 – February 2021 online and/or in Berlin

This 6-month yoga teacher mentorship program will refine your teaching skills and show you how to skilfully bridge the gap between what people expect from vinyasa yoga practice vs the science of how the body moves.

You will be able to offer your student an informed and invigorating practice that will keep their joints safe and healthy and keep your classes full.

You will connect with a progressive yoga community and build a network that fits you.

This yoga teacher mentorship is perfect for new teachers in the first 5 years of teaching. This intimate and empowering program will serve you if you are willing to do the personal work of self-inquiry and study, the humbling work of not knowing and not being perfect, and liberating process of exploring body wisdom through biomechanical lenses

In this mentorship program you will:

  • Level up your alignment cues, language and presentation skills by incorporating interoceptive techniques that support presence, awareness and clear boundaries.
  • Enhance understanding of the principles behind the creative and safe sequencing of vinyasa style yoga classes.

  • Define who you want to be and what you want to do as a yoga teacher by completing your personal project
  • Receive one-on-one supervision as you navigate the world of yoga from the seat of the teacher and/or business owner
  • Be supported by a group of peers and colleagues through an online FB group so you never again feel alone and like a misfit in a way you think and teach yoga.
  • Support your emerging career through critical inquiry into why you do things the way you do as a teacher.
