A teaching mentorship specially crafted for all regardless of where you live.
Yoga is a practice that is constantly evolving, and as teachers, hopefully we are too. This intimate mentorship is limited to 10 teachers who have previously completed a 200hr yoga teacher training. We will meet both in a small group setting and one-on one over four, 90 min meet-ups where we will cover at minimum, the below following 4 areas of the classroom.
Not in San Diego? That’s ok! You will make your own schedule with me and we will chat via Skype and cover the same content over four, 90 minute calls together. Please, email me at GoldieYoga@gmail.com to set this up and discuss further details.
The formatting for those of you who are virtual will go like this: I will be filming the live sessions with my La Jolla group. Each session will be 90 minutes. I will send the 90 minute video to you via dropbox within 48 hours or less of the date filmed. Please find a quiet space to watch this and take notes, write down questions, have your props nearby if needed, etc. We will then schedule a Skype session together one on one to go over any questions you have about that specific lecture segment. I'd like to schedule our Skype call within the same week of you watching it so the information is fresh and the formatting of each session stays cohesive.

Meet up 1-Sequencing, verbal cuing, finding your voice & playlisting:
In this first meet up we will circle up and get to know each other while covering the ever-elusive process of writing a sequence. Goldie will walk you through step by step, almost like an algorithm, how she sequences and why she believes this is the best way to learn for all learning styles. Just like there is an order to the alphabet, the same things applies to your sequences, whether you make them creative or not. Additionally, we will cover verbal cuing, finding your voice and playlisting. Please note, finding your voice and verbal cuing are topics we will cover at every meet up. These aren’t skills you learn in 90 minutes but they will improve over time with specific homework.
Meet up 2-Props to you:
In this meet up we will learn how to incorporate more prop usage into every class. Lets think outside of the box. There is a misconception that props are only for those who don’t know what they're doing. This is incorrect and in fact, when you’re not asked to grab props before class, that should concern you. Props don’t just make postures fit your unique skeleton better, they also serve to make postures more challenging. Knowing how to teach, cue and demo with props is to know how to teach a well rounded “all levels” class.
Meet up 3-School trip & friendly feedback:
Goldie will attend your public class and provide friendly, non-intimidating feedback about your verbal and physical ticks, sequence, the overall handle on the class, etc. - We will meet one on one directly after your class so the feedback is fresh. This is meet up #3 which is the date you choose yourself. Don’t fret! I’m here to help and will never make you feel like a shitty teacher. It will be constructive feedback with tons of love and praise, too. If you are working remotely with Goldie via Skype, other arrangements will be made.
Meet up 4-Flourish while functioning: In this final module we will discuss how to balance your life as a hustling yoga teacher and business owner (yep- you’re on a 1099 which means you are your own boss! Pretty rad!) while still finding joy in your own practice.This will be an open forum amongst the intimate group to discuss all things business, social media and boundary related. Not only is it important for you to set up boundaries with your students, but also with yourself.
