The Y7 Mentorship Program focuses on real world teaching experience, breaking out of your comfort zone and stepping into the role of yoga teacher. During our six week Mentorship Program you will be encouraged to move away from any self-limiting beliefs around teaching yoga and to move toward tackling any obstacles that are preventing you from being the best teacher you can be. Much of our program is based on mentor to mentee feedback. Our feedback process is rigorous, but we believe that it encourages not only growth as a teacher, but personal growth as well. Our approach ensures quick and tremendous growth in your teaching skills. During the Y7 Mentorship Program we will focus on the following teaching elements:

  • Intelligent vinyasa sequencing
  • Hands-on assists
  • Smart and accessible alignment cues
  • Presence and authenticity
  • Mastering a great playlist
  • Pace and speed of class
  • Connecting with students
  • Incorporating accessible and genuine yogic philosophy

You will teach community classes in a Y7 studio, assist your mentor’s classes, receive feedback, attend and observe Y7 classes, complete both reading and writing assignments, as well as attend a 25-Hour Weekend Workshop focused on Finding Your Voice.

Our Yoga Alliance certified program counts as 100 hours toward the Y7 Studio 300-Hour Teacher Training Certification.

Mentors: Joanna Cohen, Emily Torockio, Kate Sortino and Michelle Martini (NYC) and Thomas Harris (LA)

In this training, we will strip away any barriers that might be holding you back from finding your truest expression of self as well as how that shows up while guiding a room of students. We will focus on learning to speak authentically in order to use your voice as a tool of connection. The ability to speak your truth and let yourself be seen is a craft that often takes time to develop. We will work together to refine this skill and explore how to use your voice and your words in a profound and powerful manner.
