Mentoring

hand-lotusThe greatest and simplest power of a teacher
is the environment of their own freedom and joy.

~ Jack Kornfield

This program is an invitation to dive a little deeper, lean into your edge and develop as a practitioner, as a teacher and as a human being. The safe container of a small group of like-minded practitioners and the support of a seasoned and compassionate guide is a potent environment for inner and outer growth. The main focus of these groups is working with the deeper dimensions of yoga in an integrated, embodied and down to earth way. I have expanded the mentoring program to include two different options, please see below.

Small group mentoring – This group is focused on the inner practices of yoga, specifically on the psycho-spiritual dimension. You will have an opportunity to clarify your intentions, work with patterns that may not be serving you and learn new tools for deepening your own practice and teaching. There will be a strong emphasis on integrating the work we do into daily life.

Monday evenings, 6:30-8:30pm, January РMay, 2016 at my Somatic Yoga Therapy office in San Anselmo. 1/11 & 25, 2/8 & 22, 3/21 (one meeting only in March), 4/4 & 18, 5/2 &16

Space is limited. Please contact me directly if you are interested in this program: janice@janicegatesyoga.com

Mentoring Circle at Yoga Garden – This will be a new offering – a mentoring group with a focus on more of the practical issues that arise in teaching – how to skillfully integrate the spiritual aspects of yoga into your teaching in a down to earth, grounded way, weaving themes, sequencing, integrating therapeutics, mindfulness, the student-teacher relationship, and more. The format includes a short opening check-in circle to see what the needs of the group are and to connect, followed practices and in-depth teachings focused on a specific topic with time for discussion and integration. Bring all your questions, challenges and blocks and we will workshop them out for a rich, engaging afternoon together.

DATES TBD
Registration is through the Yoga Garden
