200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training + 50 Hour Mentorship Track
Empower Yoga offers those teachers in the 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training an additional opportunity for yoga teachers to develop their skills and deepen their knowledge of yoga through personal study and guidance and mentorship from Rose and Frank.
You will attend the regular weekend sessions of the 200-hour YTT Program but will have additional resources made available to you. The Mentorship Track will be a flexible schedule that we will work with you to create and you may begin at any time of your training. The program will include the following:
• Private mentorship sessions
You will meet with Rose, Sondra or Frank for a total of 10 sessions. We will outline your goals and objectives and discuss your progress. You will also be given additional reading and writing assignments. (10 hours)
• Asana Practice
You will be required to attend at least 2 yoga sessions per week with Frank or Rose during the duration of the YTT program.
Initially, you will observe your mentor’s class and have a brief discussion afterwards to answer any questions that may have arisen regarding sequencing, assists, etc. If your mentor deems it appropriate, you may begin to offer assists within the class and, guided by your mentor, lead one or two poses in class. (10 hours)
• Practice Teaching - Pranayama & Meditation
After a regularly scheduled Yoga class at Empower Yoga, you will be required to teach 10 classes that will be 30 minutes each. They will include breath work, meditation and a few restorative poses. (5 hours)
• Practice Teaching - Community Yoga Classes
Towards the end of the program you will teach 4 community yoga classes. (5 hours)
• Administration and Marketing Mentorship
You will learn the ins and outs of running a yoga studio. We will provide assistance in helping you grow your social media platforms, how to grow your student contact list and how to become involved in the yoga community. (5 hours)
• Personal Study
Your mentor will assign you reading and writing projects to complete, custom-tailored based on your personal intentions and what your mentor deems most appropriate for you. This can be exchanged with attending approved workshops. (15 hours minimum)
This will be determined after first mentorship session.
There is no additional cost to this program. This program will be a collaborative effort. If you complete the program and become involved through social media, administration tasks and provide assistance during the mentorship program you will be guaranteed a teaching position at the yoga studio.
After completion, you will receive a 250-hour Certification. However, through Yoga Alliance, you will be registered as a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher.
