The Energie EnCorps yoga mentorship program is designed for anyone who has already completed the Energie EnCorps 200h Yoga Teacher Training and is serious about putting into practice the skills they have learned over the course of the year, in a welcoming and open, community environment. Completing a 200h teacher training program for some people is really only the tip of the iceberg. For many, the first year is simply about absorbing information, being introduced to new ideas and an opportunity to try to learn something new for the first time.
As with all things, to become good at something it requires practice and a good mentor to guide you along the way.
The YTT mentorship program allows the student to actively participate in current year Ashtanga Vinyasa 200h YTT as a senior student. In this new role, the mentor will be given the opportunity to absorb the subtleties of the practice from a more experienced standpoint and have the chance to practice teaching all they have learned to the new trainees. Every YTT weekend mentees will be partnered with new students allowing them to play an active role in supporting their development. Mentees will be assigned topics to discuss, teach or sharing their experiences with those who are just started. This gives mentees the chance to deepen their knowledge, receive practical experience, and build their confidence. (Bilingual instruction)
As a senior student, the emphasis will be on the following:
incorporation of touch (relaxation massage, touch for breath awareness)
leading pranayama and meditation
exercises and drills to lead up to postures
arm-balancing and inversions
incorporation of philosophy into dialogue
strengthening of verbal cueing and body language
managing class environments
Stéphane Baudin - Yoga + Anatomy
Bhaskar Goswami - meditation
Bram Levinson - Yoga Philosophy
Plus other special guests...
PRACTICE AND FEEDBACK Senior students will have the opportunity to teach regular karma classes on the Energie EnCorps schedule, individually or in a team setting.
Each mentee will work with the lead instructor to discuss what their individual goals are with respect to their practice. Homework will be assigned each month based on the mentee's individual interests.
