Teacher Mentoring Program

Sometimes a devoted student of yoga, feeling that they would like to share sincerely their love of practice and growing understanding, decides to train as a teacher.Image 21-09-2017 at 3.53 PM

Depending on the structure and opportunities associated with the Teacher Training program, there may be more or less on-going support after qualification.

Vijnana Yoga Australia offers a program for recently certified teachers who feel that they (and, by extension, their students) would benefit from their having on-going support and a study context to accompany the teaching journey.

The program involves:

  • mentoring sessions
  • structured engagement with an experienced teacher, that is: the chance to be also still a ‘student’ (in a context away from the studio where teaching is undertaken)
  • a reliable forum for questions about teaching
  • a context for considering ethics & responsibility in the role
  • on-going engagement & study

Inquiries can be sent to info [AT] vijnanayogaaustralia [DOT] org about applying to the program or for further details.

It is anticipated that applicants would have a home practice (or be ready to develop one as part of the mentoring commitment) & to attend weekly Vijnana Melbourne Intermediate classes (if based in Melbourne) & to engage in other related study, discussion and supportive processes.

The program for 2018 begins in later February. Applications welcome from October 2017 onwards.
