A 6-Week Online Program
The Mentorship Program, like most forms of yoga, is taught and passed down through knowledge and experience from teacher to student. It is important when taking the step into the seat of the teacher, that you continue examining the practice as a student. Constant learning and dedication to the practice is essential for the growth of both your physical asana practice and your presence.
Created to be taken after your 200HR Yoga Teacher Training, in this 6 week course you will study and learn with other students and teachers at Citizen Yoga. The intimate experience of this program will help you obtain greater insight about your teaching abilities, compassionately help you find your blindspots, and allow for you to better comprehend how you can step in more authentically in the studio space. Each week you will deep dive into the various pillars of the practice. By the end of this program, you will gain confidence and awareness of your individual teaching voice.
You will have Unlimited Yoga at all Citizen Yoga studios during the 6 week study at Citizen Yoga. Weekly Commitment varies from 2hr-2.5hrs per week.

Week 1: What Does it Mean to be a Leader?
When you sit in the seat of the teacher, whether you feel like you are ready for it or not, a place of leadership. It is not just about knowing yoga, but understanding that how you do something is even more impactful than what you are doing. Learning the pillars of leadership and the importance of a higher ideal, provides confidence and clarity needed to grow your teaching role in the world.
Week 2: Cuing
Understanding the role of alignment in your cuing is important when deciding what to address and what to wait on during a class or private. Cues come from referencing the physiology of the body, archetypes, metaphors, and reading patterns. We will take each lens and find cues that help the body fit better towards the students signature shape.
Week 3 + 4: Teaching Toward a Pivotal Purpose
What each individual is interested in learning beyond your 200 hour certification, is personal. Reflecting on the background, the inspiration, previous experience, that inspired and will inspire your continued education is important when trying to figure out how to take your class from a pivotal pose to a pivotal purpose. This section of the mentorship will take up two weeks, the first week will be more traditional pivotal pose sequencing and the second a new tool to help get you to find the treads weaving it all together in the physical and subtle bodies.
Week 5: Custom Curriculum
Based on needs of the group
Week 6: 5 Layers of Class and 3 Dialogue
Learning to manage and detect when the class needs support. These two topics are subtle, but revolutionary for your teaching.
