My career wouldn’t be what it is today without support. I’ve had the privilege of being mentored by a number of extraordinary master teachers, and I intend to honor their spirit of giving back by passing my knowledge on to those who seek guidance.
As an ERYT500 and YACEP with the Yoga Alliance as well as a C-IAYT with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, I have a wealth of experience that I am ready to pass on to support your mentoring needs.
Additionally, I am a Yoga for Arthritis Mentor, supporting those Yoga for Arthritis teachers who have completed Level I and are seeking to fulfill mentorship requirements before advancing to Level II training and certification. Learn more about Yoga for Arthritis mentorship here.
“Mentoring with Jaymie was transformative and exhilarating, challenging and inspiring! As a recent graduate of a basic Hatha yoga teacher training, I felt I needed something extra in my personal and spiritual tool kit before fully launching my teaching career.”
Take Your Teaching to the Next Level
Working closely with a mentor can save you time and energy while offering a method for accelerating your own growth as a teacher. Additionally, a mentor can provide a safe space to ask questions. They can pass on knowledge based on their experiences and provide support by confirming that others working in the field have had the same questions as you. This can decrease feelings of vulnerability while ensuring you can get the information you need from someone you’ve grown to trust.
“Jaymie responded with incredible warmth, compassion and joy, and while carefully observing my practice, she eagerly shared her expansive knowledge and experience as a teacher of the Yogic physical and spiritual practices. I felt I had completed a very intense master’s degree in teaching Yoga in a short amount of time!”
The Mentoring Process
If you are in the Yoga for Arthritis Mentorship program, we will follow a protocol designed specifically for that program. You can learn more about it here.
For general mentoring of those teachers not in the Yoga for Arthritis Mentorship program, I recommend a minimum 4-hour commitment on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. This ensures topics are covered thoroughly and helps reinforce the attainment of any learning objectives.
Topics addressed in each mentoring sections may include, but are not limited to, the following continuing education categories:
- Techniques, Training, and Practice
- Teaching Methodology
- Anatomy and Physiology
- Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle, and Ethics
- Fundamental Marketing Tips and Tools
A short written reflection and/or evaluation of the work we do together will be requried to ensure you solidify newly learned skills and also serve as a record on the topics covered. This also aligns with and fulfills the requirements set forth through the YA Educational Categories for distance or non-contact learning.
“Jaymie is extremely well organized, communicates clearly, connects with ease and has a strong intuitive sense. Her knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, coupled with ancient wisdom and insight seems endless. I feel honored to have experienced her careful guidance and personal support, she is truly a teacher’s teacher!”
My Commitment to You
Every person is unique, and my goal is to meet you where you are, right now, and serve you in a way that will take you to the next level based on your goals and aspirations.
To request a free consultation, to learn more about pricing, or to explore the possibility of beginning a mentoring relationship, please contact me directly. I look forward to speaking with you.
“I’m so appreciative to have worked with Jaymie as my mentor. The scope of her knowledge and experience enabled me to greatly refine my teaching, and her encouragement supported me when my confidence faltered. It was like having a private teacher training!”
