Lighten Up
Yoga Teacher Mentoring Program.



You have recently completed your Yoga Teacher Training, but that’s not where the journey ends. You are looking for the guidance and support to help you flourish and the opportunity to spread your wings. Our 8 week Mentoring Program will help to further nurture you as a budding teacher as well as giving you an opportunity to get your foot in the door and teach at your favourite studio!

Often after teacher training many teachers don’t have immediate opportunities to start classes with a reputable studio and feel a bit of a disconnect when the formal training ends. We wanted to create a bridge to help you evolve from a budding trainee teacher to studio teacher that can hold their own, keep up good class numbers and also continue to grow in your own practice and development. Trainee Teachers can evolve much more effectively with ongoing feedback and support to help them improve their class plans, personal practice and ensure bad habits don’t form.

Your investment:

  • Teaching 8 Classes for Lighten Up

  • Submitting a weekly social media post to build your presence as a teacher

What you get in return:

  • Weekly Group Mentoring Program Meeting with Bec, Kate or Michael in person or via Zoom

  • Unlimited studio classes for 8 weeks (members can pause memberships for 8 weeks)

  • Facebook messenger support from Bec to assist with class plans and personal practice

  • Opportunity to build class numbers in new pilot classes which if successful could be an ongoing paid class

how to apply?

To Apply, please email Bec the following:

  1. Why you would like to do the Mentoring Program with Lighten Up or why you would like informal mentoring
