Program Overview

Yoga Soul is pleased to offer a beautiful and carefully designed, 200-hour foundational teacher mentorship program featuring a strong mentorship quality, versus just big classes. Serious students of yoga wanting to deepen their practice, as well as yoga practitioners wishing to become teachers themselves, will enjoy the well rounded quality instruction guaranteed to improve your own practice, while learning to teach safe, balanced and enlightening classes. Upon completion of your mentorship program, you will be qualified to seek certification with the Yoga Alliance. Please note, you do NOT?have to become a teacher for this program. It is an incredible opportunity to safely deepen your own practice while receiving quality education?about yoga philosophy, lifestyle, and how to truly?create the ability for you to live your life with integrity, creative intention, and strength.

This program is unique in that it features very small classes (we start each session with no more than 10 at a time), including some one on one mentoring from an experienced, qualified yoga teacher holding to the important tradition of? ??Parampara??, which literally means an uninterrupted succession, denoting the direct and unbroken transmission of knowledge from teacher to student. There is no other yoga studio in the state of Utah offering a program like this.

As a student in the Yoga Soul Mentorship program, you will:

  • Participate in four immersion weekends taking you deep into the practice of yoga (these will combine with other ? mentorship students and possibly community members) Each weekend immersion session is designed to enhance your knowledge and hone your practice by addressing a wide range of topics including alignment, anatomy, philosophy, class sequencing, ethics, Sutra study and other reading, etcetera.
  • Experience weekly studio hours practicing, observing, assisting, or teaching
  • Enjoy reading and other homework assignments
  • Practice seva in the community
  • Complete a special teaching project of your choosing
  • During your mentorship program, you will enjoy free unlimited regularly scheduled classes for 6 months to enable you to immerse your Self into self-understanding of the yogic world.
  • Rachel and Eric, along with a careful selection of other incredibly experienced and talented quality teachers will guide you through in-depth topics of their passion and specialization.
  • Plan to spend a minimum of 8-10 hours a week in addition to the weekend immersions to complete your mentorship program in a balanced, timely manner
  • Learn to look inside your Self and find love, acceptance, and grace.? This is critical to reaching your future students and life endeavors with a full authentic heart and voice. Yoga Soul expertly guides you through this process of inquiry and growth.
  • The Yoga Soul 200 hour mentorship is a four-month program. However, if extenuating circumstances arise, you may have up to a year to complete the program.
