Weekly Mentoring Meetings are on Mondays from 630 - 730 pm and Wednesdays from 830 - 930 am. All sessions are recorded for students who are unable to attend live on Zoom. We do not meet for formal mentoring during Sarahjoy's sabbaticals in August and December. The dates are shared in advance.
Mini-Cohort Meetings Each annual cohort is also divided into Mini-Cohorts for group practice, study, and support. Mini-Cohorts are assigned an individual mentor, a qualified graduate from our 800hr IAYT Yoga Therapy Training. Mentors will support your group in skill-building, pacing your training, practicum implementation, and mentoring for your practicum.
Each cohort determines their best mutual scheduled time to meet. These are bi-monthly sessions, though we also encourage weekly meetings for group members who can do that. Your development through this training will be deeper as a result of participating in these sessions.
Mentored Practicum Delivery
The IAYT 800-hr certification course requires 150 hours of Mentored Practicum Delivery. Practicum delivery includes providing individualized yoga therapy session, documenting your process from intake to homework, small group mentorship meetings with Sarahjoy. In addition to delivering practicum sessions, enrolled students and alumni join together for bi-weekly mentoring sessions with Sarahjoy and other qualified mentors. These sessions occur on Monday evenings and Wednesday mornings.
Mentored Practicum begins after you complete Part One of your 300-hr YA training with us and can continue through the time you are in the IAYT training program.
