Mentorship Program Overview:
During their first month, all Mentees begin observing Peaceful World Yoga courses that are being offered.

Each month thereafter you will work on your chosen projects, observe classes and begin teaching and guiding students in real classrooms.
If you are living in the Denver-Metro area, you will meet regularly with your Mentor face to face and also have meeting times scheduled online. If you are a distance learner, your work will be delivered and shared using the Zoom Platform. All assignments and resources will be private and only accessible to you and your mentor.

Each mentee will choose their own, personalized path for their mentorship.
