Ma Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program

The Ma Yoga® Teacher Mentorship is part of the Ma Yoga Prenatal Certification Program.

Once you’ve taken The Yoga of Pregnancy and Postpartum and The Yoga of Healing online trainings, you’ll have a LOT of new information.

We make sure you feel comfortable and confident using it with our one-on-one support program with a Senior Ma Yoga® teacher trainer.

Through phone conversations and videoing some practices, you’ll get help integratingall that you’ve learned. You’ll become a safer, more effective and more inspiring teacher – for pregnant mamas and anyone.

After you have taken both The Yoga of Pregnancy and Postpartum as well as The Yoga of Healing, get on our calendar for the yaer by submitting your Ma Yoga Teacher Mentorship Application. At that point, you will be assigned a mentor. You’ll get information about how to prepare, and if you need to postpone when the date arises, that’s fine. You have three years from the beginning of your certification program to finish.

  • Prepare your class for a pregnant person (or a friend pretending to be) with a specific ache or pain (real or imagined)

  • Email your class plans to Ma Yoga Teacher Mentor for feedback

  • Shoot your video and upload it to your Ma Yoga Teacher Mentorship Dropbox folder

  • Talk to your Ma Yoga Teacher Mentor and get feedback/next steps

  • Rinse and repeat

The two month, one-on-one Ma Yoga Teacher Mentorship program is only $200.

I am so grateful for the Ma Yoga mentoring process. This is where I learned to become the best teacher I can be by continually self-reflecting.

All teachers, whatever they teach need to do this, on a regular basis!

Video recording yourself teaching, watching it back and evaluating your successes and areas for improvement is the most illuminating and powerful tool.

Having the mentor relationship and regular video conferences with Colleen was transformative. You don’t always know what you are doing, no matter how self-reflective you are trying to be, having a mentor to celebrate your successes and make proactive suggestions for improvements was fantastic.

I am so thankful to Colleen for all the time and care she put into this process!

The Ma Yoga Teacher Mentorship  is a wonderful experience that is very rare to have in our teaching life. To get to work with an experienced mentor whose intention is to help support you in becoming a more effective yoga teacher is a very special opportunity. Enjoy this process and be open to receive.

To get the most out of it, remember the 3 R’s (Receptive, Relational, Reversible) to stay in the feminine and know that you are receiving gifts that you will keep on giving to you over time.
