Mentorship for Yoga Teachers by Mirjam Haymann
Teaching great yoga is a craft. The step from a 200-hour teacher training to become a skillful teacher takes time, experience, reflection and in an optimal scenario: guidance.
In this 30-hour mentorship program with Mirjam Haymann you will receive Mirjam’s insight on how to navigate the yoga market: where and how she failed and what helped her to succeed. You will benefit from tools to deal with your own inner critic and your demons, so you can show up the way you truly want to and build a steady and confident path of yoga teaching.
Because to take the seat of the teacher can take a toll on us:
- How do we sequence intelligent classes and keep doing so, without just using intuition or what we recently learned in another class?
- How do we deal with rejections, empty classes, or angry-looking students? Or with students that are even walking out of your class?
- How can we teach responsibly when there are various levels in the room?
- Are we allowed to teach Asanas that we cannot practice ourselves? Or how do we teach advanced asana?
- How do we navigate the anarchy of the yoga jungle, social media, competition, and “politics”?
- How shall we touch people when we assist and what assists could possibly be dangerous?
- How can we use our voice to master the room and take ownership of the class?
Mirjam is teaching over 10 years at Airyoga, hosting Workshops and was teaching at big events such as Wanderlust (with over 1000 practitioners), Lululemon and various festivals. She is the co-founder of the yoga project EveryDay Hero, is a pre- and postnatal teacher as well as an activist and public speaker for a healthy and meaningful lifestyle. She is a mother of three, who are her everything.

Each afternoon includes a physical group class.
- Deepen your practice: Self-knowledge as a key to successful teaching (and to enjoy a strong and open body)
- Assists: How to touch people (and how NOT to!) and what for. We talk about different kind of touches and learn technique, so people really feel your impact.

- Master any room, big or small: how can you stand in your power and use your voice for the benefit of others. We learn how you lead yourself and how to lead a class confidently and successfully.
