Yoga Mentoring: Revitalize your yoga practice (5 weeks) with Mark O’Brien

Wednesday 20th Feb 2019

Learn and practice new techniques, meditations, inquiries and inspiration to rekindle your commitment to your own Sadhana as a teacher or yogi
This course is partly advanced/continued training, and part self-directed inquiry.
Over this 5 week program you will explore and develop the essence of your own practice, learn new techniques, and be able to use this priceless forum to discuss issues about your practice or teaching under the guidance of a senior experienced teacher and mentor.

Yoga is so much more than “shapes on the mat”…I’ll remind you how to reconnect with the heart of your own meaningful practice in this enthralling program.

If you expect super-advanced asanas this is not the course you want. But if you want a mature, sustainable practice approach, search for meaning and direction in your practice or teaching, then please join us.

We’ll also have a special focus on making your approach appropriate for the #metoo era considering trauma-sensitive cues and protocols.


“Mentoring” is a modern word that describes an integral part of the tradition of yoga throughout history. It includes the guidance given between teacher and student, as well as the ongoing professional and personal guidance necessary for all yoga teachers, at all levels of seniority and experience, as part of their continuing journey of yoga.

Who is this for?
Teachers or experienced students (minimum 2 years regular practice suggested) wanting to revitalize the fire and passion for their own practice, and develop some new knowledge and (teaching) skills too.

Each week will include a led practice, and forum for discussion with notes. You’ll be encouraged to keep a journal during and after this short course.

Attendees will also earn 10 CPD points for YogaAustralia members.

I thought we’d do more theory on asana. I’m so glad we didn’t! I loved the training and the notes”
