Local Mentorship

About This Mentorship

This mentorship is specifically designed for teachers who have completed a 200 HR. training or experienced practitioners who are looking to develop their assisting skills in a Mysore self-practice setting. This program will provide 200HR. graduates and experienced practitioners with a platform to continue or deepen their studies and understanding of teaching. 

 

The mentorship is meant to create a bridge between what you have learned in your teacher training or through observation of your own practice and teaching by gaining hands on experience in classes, refining teaching skills and studying one on one with Bibi. This program is designed to make participants confident in their adjustments and understanding of practice. 

 

During the mentorship you will learn a variety of hands-on assisting techniques, verbal cueing, and how work with injuries.
