Private Mentoring

Who: One-on-One w/ Erika
Where: Online or In Person
When: Based on availability

Private mentoring sessions are designed for the already practicing yoga student who wishes to delve deeper into their yoga education and practice. Through these personal classes, students are able to receive guidance in techniques and yogic practices that are not often taught in open public classes.

These specialized private mentoring sessions are also for the aspiring or existing yoga teacher who would like support for their yoga teaching. These sessions are good if you are looking for support with class sequencing, posture modification/adaptation and teaching more effective alignment. Also how to add philosophy into your teaching in an approachable way.

There have been many times in my 25+ years in yoga that I have sought out the personal attention of my teacher and asked for individual guidance to strengthen elements of my practice. It was in these private teachings that I experienced an awakening and expansion in my yoga that I am forever grateful for.
