ABOUT EMBODY TRUTH/ THE PAD PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM

This 12 month program offered in partnership with Embody Truth and The Pad provides students with an opportunity to build upon the material introduced in a 200-Hour Teacher Training, integrate what you’ve learned through practical application in the classroom, and support the development of their individual voice and style as a yoga teacher.

Through a combination of workshops and potential 3-month mentorship with a senior trainer, students will refine their teaching skills, identify areas of expertise, and set the foundation for fully incorporating yoga into your life path.

MENTORSHIP

Through the Mentorship Program, students will benefit from working more closely with a senior teacher. In this component of the course, participants continue to cultivate their teaching skills by applying them practically, in the class room. Additionally, trainees build upon what they learned in their initial training, solidifying and integrating the information through a consistent, one-on-one relationship and on-going dialogue with their mentor. As assistants in their mentors classes-trainees hone their ability to see bodies and give hands on adjustments. In addition, they have the opportunity to observe a senior teacher instructing, sequencing, adjusting and inspiring their students, and through this process to imprint these crucial elements of superlative teaching. Twice monthly mentor meetings will reinforce this learning process and serve as a forum to address questions and issues related to teaching yoga. Time and location vary by mentor.

Apprenticeship requirements:

  • Assisting mentor in class once a week
  • Taking mentor’s class once a week
  • Taking a class with another approved Senior Teacher once a week
  • Two meetings per month with mentor teacher

Note: When selecting a mentor, please make first and second choice. Your mentor requests will be reviewed by all the mentors in the program, and you will be matched based on a combination of factors, including your yoga background, teaching history and career goals.
