TEACHERS + PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS:
So you've competed your YTT certification, now what? I'm noticing a trend with new teachers - they aren't teaching. Despite the loads of theory they have soaked up in their YTT program, they are petrified and unsure how to apply what they've learned. I can't blame them, it's scary as hell to stand in front of a room full of people, let alone attempt to tell them what to do. When I started teaching I took it upon myself to hone in on my skills, I wrote class plans and dedicated hours and hours to my mat. That worked for a while but when I found my mentor, my teaching went to the next level.
Not teaching yet? No problem. It can be tough getting a consistent teaching gig out of your YTT. Mentorships can be adjusted to your needs. Rather than me attending classes, we can collaborate to work on class writing, sequencing and practice application so you're ready when the call comes to step in front of a student body.
NOT A TEAHCER, NO PROBLEM:
Sometimes we just need a little outside help to gain clarity, tune into vision, access potential and come alive in life. Together we can work to gain you insight as to where you want to be going, and how to get going there. Visualization, meditation, conversation, manifestation, action and accountability. Talk to me, tell me what you need help with.
