Students will be assigned to mentor groups. Mentor groups will meet at least ten times over the course of the training, according to an explicit syllabus and schedule. The majority of mentor group meetings are done over the phone for convenience across locations.
Students will be required to complete the Gaia Yoga Foundations Course, as added experience with Colleen and Rodney's teaching as well as reinforcement to the Yoga Shanti teaching style, language and sequencing.
In addition to weekend and mentor sessions, students will be required to attend, observe, and eventually assist APPROVED public yoga classes. Homework will be assigned between sessions, and will include keeping a daily practice journal and completing writing assignments and required readings. Students will be expected to have a daily yoga practice and weekly group involvement. The bonds and community that develop among students and mentors are the backbone of this program.
