TheForrest 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 and healer. Taught by Cat Allen.
Who this training is for:
Graduates of the Forrest Yoga® Foundation Teacher Training and Yoga Teachers of any background/style.
This FYMP (51.5 total hours of training) comprises of a 7-day program of daily continuing education workshops/classes (includes teaching practicum w/feedback) followed by 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 Catherine, 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. We also explore ceremonial practices including Smudging, Calling in the Four Directions, and Talking Circle.
