The Forrest Yoga® Mentorship Program (FYMP) will take you through a journey of continued growth and learning so that you can embody your passion for teaching and become a more effective teacher. Taught by Cat Allen and Heidi Sormaz.
Who this training is for:
Graduates of the Forrest Yoga® Foundation Teacher Training OR
Yoga teachers of any style or background who want to learn more about the Forrest Yoga style.
This FYMP (52 total hours of training) comprises of two 4-day modules (8 days total) of daily continuing education workshops/classes (includes teaching practicum w/feedback) with 4 bridge calls over a 4-month period. Throughout this program, you will get to hone your teaching and hands-on assisting skills, to become more skilled at working with injuries, to ask your questions about teaching Forrest Yoga®, and to get guidance with your Level 2 certification homework (if you’re not already Level 2 certified). The FYMP is undeniably a powerful continuum of the great work and deep processes you started in the Foundation Teacher Training.
All the workshop days incorporate a morning Forrest Yoga® intensive taught by Cat or Heidi, hands-on assisting clinic, Forrest Yoga® sequencing practice, and opportunity for mentees to teach and assist an afternoon Forrest Yoga class to the public (Mentees to get feedback from their Mentor). The focus of each workshop draws you deeper into the pillars of Forrest Yoga: Breath, Integrity, Strength and Spirit. For instance: One workshop follows of the theme of Authenticity. In this workshop, Mentees examine the truth of what they speak and why they teach what they do. This workshop helps Mentees build congruency between what they teach and who they are and offers training for Mentees to communicate clearly and effectively.

Connection to the Forrest Yoga® community.
An opportunity to go deeper and walk your spirit path with more support.
Training toward assisting Ana and Forrest Yoga Guardians if you’re a graduate of the FYFTT.
