A 16-week Mentorship Process
August 1 - Nov 30th, 2020
Cultivate your confidence as a teacher
and craft your yoga business to support you energetically + economically
Welcome to your mentoring journey ♡
Your 200-hr taught you how to teach YOGA - the content of the poses, the context and history of the practice, some basic anatomy, some sequencing guidelines, etc. But then it's sort of up to you to navigate the rest.
Often as yoga teachers, it feels like we're on our own.
You could be brand new to the yoga space, feeling like the biggest imposter to ever walk into a studio.
You could have been teaching for years but finally decided this would be the year you'd craft and create that yoga business you've been desiring - a career you love that sustains you energetically and economically. And that freaks you completely out.
Or worse yet, maybe you're plateaued. Burnt out. Bored. And filled with shame and frustration that you could feel that way while not having to punch a clock or push paper all day.
This process is not a teacher training - its designed to help TEACH yoga. To help you build a sustainable career that supports you energetically and economically as you build the yoga business you desire, planning classes week-to-week alongside the beautiful long term vision of your teaching.
I've been you. All of those you's up there, at one time or another.
Equal parts excited and scared that anyone would take her seriously as a yoga teacher, clinging to all of the knowledge she amassed but still not feeling that support and guidance around her. And since I was (am!) a recovering imperfect perfectionist, any thought of making a mistake was enough to get me to freeze in my tracks, making no decision at all.
That is what inspired me to start my Yoga Teacher Mentorship program.
Through 16 weeks of side-by-side work, we will share a nurturing series of three 1-on-1 calls, plus eight live group workshops with a supportive collective of teachers journeying alongside you.
You'll also receive a rich library of self-written resources on everything - from yoga biz foundations (systems, pricing, and marketing), designing beautiful signature offerings (like workshops, retreats, memberships, private services, and more...), teaching techniques (anatomy & philosophy deep dives, class planning tools, dealing with overwhelm and appropriation, creating safe boundaries...), and a collection of ready made templates for making everything as efficient and ease-full as possible.
With lots of gentle self reflection and intentionally weekly actions, I'll guide you through the process of getting clear with your message and path, building your own gorgeous website, launching a unique offering, and elevating your confidence - fully stepping into the wise and beautiful teacher you already are!
Free Mentoring Call | Class Planning
Watch a replay of a free workshop for yoga teachers that Eva offered on July 8th.
Do you love to plan you classes with precision? Or do you enjoy the intuitive play of winging it? Or perhaps a balance of both? As Yoga Teachers, we each have our own class planning process. And at times, we may feel a little stuck with our class content or pressured to continually re-invent the wheel.
In this free mentorship call, I'll share with you some of my favourite methods to plan my classes, with a gentle roadmap of intelligent sequencing and a compass of a heart-felt class theme. Of the many yoga teacher's I've worked with, lots have reflected to me how much time and energy this process can take. But by engaging some simple frameworks, we can reduce this labour and ultimately open up more space to focus on the other areas of your yoga business or more self-care time to nourish yourself.
We will cover the important things that you want to know and maybe some things that you haven’t even thought of yet like:
Overcoming Imposter Syndrome i.e. who would want to listen to ME?
Setting the foundation of your yoga business, or just getting things back in order
Marketing yourself in an embodied authentic way (social media, email, the whole thing)
Building your own gorgeous yoga website to showcase your teaching (yes, I'll help you create this from scratch)
Setting your prices and feeling financially supported from your teaching by exploring new mediums beyond studio classes
Getting really clear with your message as a teacher, and allowing it to inspire your visual style and logo
Building, managing, and connecting with your email list
Using my planning templates to design your signature offering, like a class series, workshop, retreat or membership
Undoing the overwhelm of the tech of teaching - I'll share my tips for tech, filming and the platforms I use to run my yoga business
Designing class planning strategies to keep you inspired as you create sequences, themes and curriculum that you and your students love
Upgrading your anatomical confidence and weaving the philosophical wisdom of yoga throughout your classes
Dealing with the tough stuff, like addressing cultural appropriation, student communication and boundaries, and physical/mental/emotional burnout
Getting smart about your legal and financial responsibilities
Looking beyond your drishti into the next phase of what is possible for you as you grow
I’ve created this Mentorship program to support YOU, no matter where you are in your beautiful adventure. I want to be for you the mentor I so deeply craved when I was getting my feet under me. If one thing in this program helps you to move beyond your fears and take a step closer to the light, I would be overjoyed.
The next mentorship container will span over a 16-week period from August to November, 2022 and include eight live workshops and three private mentorship calls.
Registration starts June 20th, 2022. Early bird options available until July 1st, 2022. Eight spots only.
With her gentle wisdom and vast experience, Eva loves to support yoga teachers to build their knowledge and confidence as they share the medicine that yoga can provide.
Eva Maxine Hamilton is a Canadian Yoga Educator specializing in the soft, supported practices of yin and restorative yoga. She completed her initial yoga training when she was just 17 and has been teaching full time since 2008. She owned a studio in Canada for several years before uprooting to travel and teach internationally. She has remained dedicated to her continuing studies and has since completed over 1000-hrs of further yoga education in many styles.
Eva’s delicate approach is combined with an in-depth understanding of functional movement as well as the mind-body connection and intricate workings of the human nervous system.
As a yoga educator, Eva specializes in educating on embodied anatomy, yoga philosophy, and teaching methodology, as well as the more subtle skills of teaching, including communication, boundaries and co-regulation. She is dedicated to developing programs and trainings that elevate the standards of yoga education and increase inclusivity in the yoga space.
By nature a curious and gentle soul, Eva does not view yoga as a way to be better at touching your toes or getting the best Instagram capture, but rather as a medium to learn both about yourself and to honour the rich and diverse cultures of yoga’s origins. Having studied religious studies at university, Eva has a thorough understanding of yoga philosophy and mysticism and loves to educate her students with reverence for the roots of yoga as a wisdom tradition.
As she holds space in practice, Eva’ intention is to craft a supportive energy and place emphasis on the internal experience, encouraging self-empathy and curiosity both on and off the mat.
Eva is registered as a Yoga Alliance YACEP (Continuing Education Provider).
Eva absolutely poured her heart and soul into providing such a great experience for all of us on this journey. From the online platform to the mix of live one to one and group calls I can’t even begin to put into words the amazing content and workbooks she provides. The whole experience helped shape me and my business massively, and I feel like I have so much clarity now.
