Promoting Lifelong Learning

The practice of yoga encourages us to embody “the beginner’s mind.” Whether you are a new teacher looking to refine your teaching skills or you are an experienced teacher looking for some inspiration, there is always more to learn!

Furthering Your Current Skills

The practice and teaching of yoga encompasses more than just the poses. From pranayama, mantra, mudra, meditation, and philosophy mentorship can help fill the gaps in your current knowledge and bring more power to your personal life and teaching.

Embracing Community

Shala welcomes all levels of practitioners and loves being involved in the Squamish community and we are always looking for more opportunities! If you are a new teacher to the area or just want to expand your teaching skills, becoming a mentee is a great way to immerse yourself in our great community.

Sharing Motivation

Sometimes, all you need is just a little motivation and support. The true benefit to mentorship is the connection you develop with your mentor and the community. Your mentor is the owner of Shala Yoga Studio with credentials and experience - inspiration, concrete tips and specific guidance will help you reach your goals.
Thank you so much for the mentoring! I really appreciate receiving such insightful advice from an experienced teacher. The feedback has given me a really good idea of how I can improve my teaching and brush up on habits that would otherwise go unnoticed! The comments and suggestions I received along the way have always been friendly, constructive and motivating and I feel more confident in my sequencing/ teaching as a result! I'd highly recommend the mentorship programme with Tanya to any newer teacher looking to continue their education and hone in on their teaching skills! Tanya is a very approachable and knowledgable teacher!
