Botannix Yoga 10-week (60 hour) Mentorship Program
At Botannix Yoga we recognise that while a formal teaching qualification is a necessary step in developing a teaching career, to become a confident and inspiring teacher also requires experience at teaching. To help bridge the gap, we have developed a Yoga Teaching Mentorship program. This program gives newly qualified yoga teachers the opportunity to teach real classes to real students, to further explore the challenges that arise in the teaching environment and focus attention into areas that are of most interest. The mentorship program involves weekly teaching opportunities, small group meetings and individual mentorship meetings with director of Teacher Training, Jeff Miller. The mentorship is flexible and can be adapted to meet your personal needs.
Our mentorship is inspired by this quote:
In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experience the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.
Angeles Arrien PhD-in the forward to Gabrielle Roth’s Maps to Ecstacy
Through the Botannix Yoga Mentorship program, we explore these 4 healing salves. Through asana sequencing we explore the practice of movement (Dancing); Through music, mantra and chanting we delve into the practice of singing; through theming and dharma we practice story telling and through meditation we find silence.
