Sacred Sounds Yoga prides itself on its feeling of community and the support it offers to both its students and its teachers. Our mentorship program is a chance to participate and help build that community in a sustainable way that allows you to walk away feeling confident in your teaching and in your knowledge of the yoga industry. Additionally, we want you to integrate the materials of your 200-hour or 500-hour teacher training–it’s time to bring them onto the mat and into the studio!
Choose a 3- or 5-month mentorship program at Sacred Sounds Yoga. It is an opportunity to deepen, fine tune, hone and practice your teaching skills. We aim to create an environment that is focused on fostering your growth as a teacher and helping you develop a network. The Sacred Sounds Yoga mentor and mentee work one-on-one to individually customize the advanced training to the mentee’s particular needs and wants.
This program is open to those who have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program or equivalent.
Mentorship Program Includes:
- Choosing a Sacred Sounds Yoga teacher or teachers (from the list below) to work with one-on-one through the consecutive and agreed upon 3- or 5-month period. The teacher has to be open to it at the time; we will let you know within 3 weeks of your mentorship application if your teacher or one of your teachers is available.
- Unlimited classes at Sacred Sounds Yoga for the 3- or 5-month duration. Mentees are expected to take at least three classes per week with either their mentor or teachers approved by their mentor. Mentees have to sit and observe at least three classes per month with either their mentor or other teachers approved by their mentor.
- The opportunity to assist your chosen teacher in one of his or her classes on a weekly basis with a 10-minute minimum Q&A after class.*
- Gradual development over time to possibly begin to teach agreed upon portions of your teacher’s class (dependent on chosen teacher).
- Attendance and assisting one workshop led by your mentor or another Sacred Sounds Yoga teacher if the timing doesn’t work out.
- A one-hour private session with your mentor once for the 3-month session and twice for the 5-month session at Sacred Sounds Yoga.

- Marketing, building community with students, social media, auditions and finding work
