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.

If you have completed a 200-hour training outside of our school, enrollment in the Bridge Program is required. Click here to find out more.
