For many teachers, the work of creating safe space for students to have physical and emotional breakthroughs on the mat is a lifelong journey. The Lighting the Path Mentorship and Assisting Program provides yoga teachers with the opportunity to assist Pete at one of his weekly classes and work on physical adjustments, verbal cues, and emotional presence.
- Be emotionally intelligent and present with students by observing and empathizing with their unique needs
- Instruct students so that they stay present in their practice
- Create a supportive, healing environment
- Make the practice accessible for all levels
- Confidently work with physical and emotional injuries
Monthly one-on-one mentoring meetings with Pete are tailored to the needs of each teacher, and focus on development of teaching skills, business expansion, and other relevant topics. Feedback on assisting is also provided. The mentorship program is a chance for teachers to truly be seen in their development, and get clear around intentions for their teaching and business.
- The program is designed to meet you where you are in your teaching journey. As a mentee, you will work with Pete to develop a 6-month development plan for your teaching, or other aspects of your yoga business.
- You will receive weekly opportunities to practice physical assisting and holding space for students, and will receive heartfelt and honest feedback from Pete and his senior teaching team on your assisting.
Priority for mentoring and assisting program participation is given to LTP training graduates. Non-LTP graduates will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
“Pete has an incredible gift at making yoga accessible and meaningful to everybody. His Lighting the Path teacher training is chock full of tools, techniques, and practices to prepare you to teach yoga and live a more authentic life that is connected to spirit. Pete shares his knowledge and passion generously and supports his students fully. I would highly recommend Pete’s teacher training to anyone looking to deepen their practice, bring more love into their life, and embark on the journey of teaching yoga.”
