Privates and Mentorships

I offer three different types of one-on-one sessions: Yoga teacher mentorships, private yoga sessions, and one-on-one mindfulness guidance. Read on for details and pricing.

Yoga Teacher Mentorships

Be the yoga teacher you want to be!

Teaching yoga can come with a lot of questions. How do I figure out what kind of teacher I am? How do I shake off the nerves and feel confident in my teaching? How does sequencing work, anyway? How can I get my students to keep coming back? And can I make a living doing this?

This mentorship will provide you with personal, tailored support in clarifying what you want and achieving your goals as a yoga teacher. Refine your knowledge in a range of topics with an experienced yoga teacher who can support you wherever you have questions. Some examples of topics we could explore:

  • Understanding sequencing so you can create a class on the fly
  • Gaining confidence in being the teacher you want to be
  • Refining languaging so you can teach effectively and offer personal attention to your students
  • Clarifying your intentions and goals and finding your unique voice
  • Hands-on assists
  • Refining your understanding of asana so you can teach it safely and well
  • Developing a sustainable career as a yoga teacher
  • Understanding effective marketing and business techniques

This program includes 6 one-on-one sessions within a maximum of ten weeks, a coupon code for 10% savings that may be used towards a course of your choice at Ocean and Crow, two follow-up Skype sessions once a month after the end of the program, email support, and optional extension packages. We will discuss your goals and intentions and create a plan for our time together.

Full program $750+tax (save $40 if paid up front). 

Payment plan: three payments of $263.40+tax (includes processing fees).

Optional extension packages: five sessions within eight weeks for $590+tax.

From Anchi Tsai:

“I took Julie’s mentorship when I decided to be a full-time yoga instructor. That was not an easy decision. I have a passion for yoga but I also had doubts and fear. Julie guided me through to find who I am and what I truly want. During the mentorship, I realized that teaching is also a part of self-searching. The more I know myself, the easier I can deliver my messages in my classes, verbally or in silence. She inspires me on so many different levels and empowers me as a yoga teacher, studio owner and as a woman. ‘Tuesdays with Julie’ (my mentorship was used to be on Tuesdays) deeply influenced my view of yoga and my own life. I’m forever grateful.”

Personalized Yoga

One-on-one yoga is a wonderful gift that you can give to yourself. It’s excellent for beginners looking for a way to enter into the practice and for people working with injuries or limitations, but it’s also an excellent choice for more experienced yogis who want to deepen their practice, approach more challenging postures, and get an intimate understanding of how the postures work best in their individual bodies. Personal, hands-on support with a teacher who is totally focused on you can reveal benefits you didn’t even know you were looking for! 

Personalized yoga package includes:

  • 10 one-on-one yoga sessions within six months
  • hands-on assists and adjustments specific to your body and practice to enhance the learning and healing effects of the yoga
  • take-home routines and practices developed specifically for you as needed
  • additional resources in the form of articles, audio yoga classes, and other information depending on your goals
  • A coupon code for 10% savings that may be used towards a course of your choice at Ocean and Crow

Yoga in Daily Life: One-on-One Mindfulness Guidance

Are you struggling to make a life decision? Does stress sometimes overwhelm you? Would you like to get better at listening to the intuition in your body, and deepening your relationship with yourself as well as other people?

Mindfulness can help us feel calmer, more connected to ourselves and others, and more able to see the difference between what we think we should feel and what we really do feel. This helps us trust ourselves better and make courageous choices towards the life we really want to be living–and still love and accept ourselves when everything falls apart. One-on-one mindfulness guidance is a form of emotional support that uses tools from yoga philosophy and meditation as well as Western modalities like cognitive behavioral therapy to help build your confidence, self-trust, emotional intelligence, and relationships with others. Talking confidentially with someone who will listen and support without judgment can help you explore your own feelings and what might be holding you back in your life.

These sessions are mostly conversation-based. We may do some meditation or grounding exercises but no physical yoga postures. Package includes 10 sessions once a week or once every two weeks. Sessions are generally held at Ocean and Crow Yoga studio, but can also be done at my home, your home, or over Skype if needed.

Investment: $1080 plus tax (Save $80 if paid in full up front).

Payment Plan: 4 payments of $290 plus tax (includes processing fees)
