Evolve: Yoga Teacher Mentorship with Paid Practicum

Evolve: Yoga Teacher Mentorship with Paid Practicum


In this intensive 6-week mentorship program, you will learn how to become the best teacher you can be in your chosen style (Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin, or Restorative). You’ll also learn how to teach to all bodies with a trauma-informed and body-positive perspective, how to approach consensual hands-on assists, how to build up attendance, retain your students, promote your classes, and how to make your career in the yoga business work for you. 

Learn privately with Julie Peters, E-RYT 500, YACEP, owner of Ocean and Crow Yoga studio, with 20+ years of practice and 10+ years of teaching experience. We will tailor the program to your needs so that you can see real, positive changes in your teaching career. 

Each mentorship program will conclude with an “exam” which is an open class taught at Ocean and Crow. Those who pass the exam will then begin a paid practicum, which is a paid, public class at Ocean and Crow Yoga. The mentorship is designed to help you pass so that you can set up a successful class and make money teaching yoga! If your initial application is accepted, you have a very good chance of passing the exam and getting your own paid class.

Julie’s experience and passion for the art of teaching yoga and mentoring teachers is evident in everything she does. Working with her has given me essential skills for leading classes, marketing those classes, and running a small business with authenticity and integrity. Julie’s work as a teacher is poignant, authentic, and really down to earth, which makes her classes feel accessible and welcoming. As a business coach, she offers very practical and actionable guidance that truly works. Julie’s warm and friendly demeanor made me feel totally comfortable in her presence from the first time I met her, and I would highly recommend working with her if you get the chance!

I highly recommend Julie’s mentorship program because, through Julie’s systematic guidance, I came to feel more confident in teaching what really speaks to my heart. She also gave me wonderful advice about how to run the yoga business. At the beginning of the teaching journey, it’s always nice to have a mentor who knows this industry so well to help us see our blindspots. Julie is knowledgeable, patient and authentic. I’m very grateful for her guidance.

Julie’s mentorship program was mindfully tailored to my needs as a teacher. She listened to what I was interested in learning more about, helped me work towards my goals and gave me very useful and honest feedback. Julie is also very knowledgeable and well respected in the business of yoga. I took her expert advice with me when successfully building my career as a full time yoga teacher, and then going on to creating and owning my own yoga studio!
