Teacher development & Mentorship program
The missing piece after teacher training is often the observation and feedback component. This program fills that gap while giving teachers an opportunity to build upon their strengths and create an authenticity and congruency within themselves as a teacher. Participants will begin to cultivate their own unique voice and style beyond the framework laid out in 200/500 hour models, giving them a style and format all their own based on their individual audience.
Prior to the start of the training, teachers are required to submit the following:
- A recording of you teaching one of your public classes
- A biography of yourself as a teacher - list what's important to you, what you're trying to teach your students, how and what kind of teacher you believe yourself to be.
- A full written class sequence, different than the one taught in the video.
Pre-requisite materials will be reviewed prior to the start of the training.
Based on the needs of the group teachers will then work through modules of material designed to encourage them to strengthen their knowledge and to refine and highlight their abilities as yoga teachers.
Topics to be covered will be:
- Asana Alignment and Movement from a kinesthetically accurate perspective - Anatomy and Kinesthetic principles as they relate to asana
- Sequencing based on your particular teaching style
- Hands on Adjustments and Tactile teaching skills
- How to incorporate philosophical yogic principles into your teaching
- Body language and verbal delivery
- Cueing based on your knowledge and style
- Classroom management
- Interpersonal skills for dealing with students’ needs and goals
- Long-term goals and how to work towards them
At the close of the program, teachers will leave with a clear understanding of what they need to work on and how to make progress forward.
Feedback - Feedback will be given during individual, one hour Skype/FaceTime calls after the close of the training. In addition, one group Skype/FaceTime update call will be held about a month after the close of the training. Continuing feedback will be available should teachers want to continue on a consistent basis.
The cost for this 32 Hour Mentorship Program is $850* (NZ Dollars) or Earlybird Price $780* (NZ Dollars) if paid in full by 31st July 2018.
* Please note this does not include food, accommodation or travel.

Alexandria Crow’s yoga experience has been a journey of transformation that has led to self acceptance and a sense of ease with herself and the world around her. The physical challenges of a rigorous yoga asana practice initially provided a natural familiarity for the former competitive gymnast, through injury and inquiry her practice and teaching has evolved towards sustainability. The study of the yogic philosophy has given her tools she uses to approach life with steadiness. Her practice has taught her the importance of accessing the present moment and how one’s thoughts are not an accurate representation of who each of us are at the source. With this clarity, she’s able to live life with more ease.
Alex shares her personal experience of the transformative nature of a yoga practice with her students. Her classes are unique in their style and are wisely designed and are based on the actual mechanics of the body and allow students to explore their personal range of motion and capabilities in relation to each class’s focus. She asks her students to observe the roots of their actions to know why they are making certain choices and to understand that while they can or cannot do something doesn’t necessarily mean that they should on either side. She teaches her students to experience the impermanent sensations of the body while watching how those sensations beget thoughts and how those thoughts beget an action that may or may not always be wise or based in the present moment. Alex’s emphasis on paying attention and her insistence on each individual respecting their own uniqueness encourages them to love and celebrate who they are. It’s this love of their own unique perfection that creates true change in her students so they can connect with more grace to themselves, to others and to the world.
Alex is an internationally respected teachers’ teacher who leads teacher trainings and workshops around the world. Through her Yoga Physics methodology she aims to clearly explain in the simplest terms the what, why’s and how’s of asana, meditation and yogic philosophy making the practice approachable for everyone, of every level and of every walk of life. She shares this knowledge with her students and other teachers so they can practice and teach wisely, sustainably and mindfully. Her continuing education workshops in person and online, as well as her 300 hour teacher intensive train teachers to be better informed on yogic philosophy and history, the physical mechanics of the body and how to apply that knowledge to asana, as well as how to ethically lead group classes that are accessible and sensitive to all. Her Yoga Physics mentorship program is helping teachers build on their strengths, while discovering their own unique voices.
