VINYASA APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
After completing Lesley’s training and receiving certification, there is a continuing education program offered in the form of an apprenticeship. The Lesley D Apprenticeship Program is a mentored curriculum augmented by mentored teaching, practice, self-study and additional workshops. The apprentice/mentor system enhances practical teaching skills, directs independent study and integrates an asana and meditation practice schedule that contributes to professional enhancement and the deepening of personal yoga practice.
Apprentices are expected to have regular yoga practice. This program includes: apprenticing in Lesley’s Vinyasa classes, individual meetings and coaching sessions as well as giving and receiving In-Class Personal lessons.
Program schedule is flexible and can be made to work around the apprentice’s work/family schedule. Apprentices must complete the program’s curriculum requirements after a minimum of 12 weeks and a maximum of 48 weeks. When you register, we will book a meeting to look at schedules and create a plan for your apprenticeship.
The apprenticeship includes:
15 private one on one coaching/mentoring sessions with Lesley
15 class assisting/observing sessions - Lesley will give the apprentice assignments will that will be repeated until Lesley 'passes' them. Each assignment will be followed by a meeting with Lesley for feedback and coaching.
15 Classes taken and recorded in logbook/practice journal
Space is this program is very limited. Please register early.
Beginning June 2019
Individual program schedules will vary.
This program counts towards the Continuing Education Unit (CEUs) requirements for Yoga Alliance Registered Teachers (RYTs).
