The Forrest Yoga Mentorship Program (FYMP) is an incredible opportunity designed to give you support after the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training.
Individuals that have successfully completed the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training and are a member of the Hoop of the Teachers.
Taught by a Forrest Yoga Guardian of your choice (in some cases assisted by a Forrest Yoga Guardian Trainee), this year-long program follows a streamlined curriculum that has been developed to offer you a continuing education program in the art of teaching Forrest Yoga® continuing the transformations you have started in the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training. Your Forrest Yoga Guardian will help you (the mentee) on your personal and professional development into an excellent yoga teacher and offer guidance to you on your journey to become a Forrest Yoga Certified Teacher.
Your Forrest Yoga Guardian will determine the schedule of the mentorship program with you and fellow mentees in your group which shall encompass:
- Quarterly workshops that address:
- Teaching skills
- Hand-on assists
- Assisting a class
- Working with injuries
- Basic Ceremony
- Guided Writing Process for Setting Intent
- Quarterly conference calls (bridge calls) with your Forrest Yoga Guardian and fellow mentees for instruction and discussion on a teaching topic provided by Ana Forrest. (The first call takes place approximately 6 weeks after the first workshop and thereafter one every three months)
In addition, you will have access to your Forrest Yoga Guardian by phone or e-mail for ongoing guidance regarding teaching Forrest Yoga and be teamed up to work long term with a fellow mentee (butt-kicker) to help you identify and achieve your goals, and be guided through your certification homework assignments to help you achieve your status as Forrest Yoga Certified Teacher.
