Notes from Kelly
I didn't come to Yoga because I felt good. Quite the opposite. A back injury from a car wreck left me with severe nerve pain (sciatica) for over a year. Because the western allopathic model did not completely address chronic pain I was introduced to Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy. Pain management through continued movement was recommended and I was took my first yoga class at a nearby gym. All my favorite PT exercises were in that first class. After a while, I knew I found my calling.
My first training was a 33 hr training and I came out unsure of how to sequence classes. I wasn't clear on my direction and where to best spend my time and energy. Eventually, the Therapeutic applications and healing nature of Restorative Yoga called to me. That's where I began to invest my energies. I deeply appreciated the required clinical for certification and over the years I amassed over 300 hours with my teacher, Judith Lasater.
Soon after, I was introduced to the intelligence of Wave Sequencing and Vinyasa Krama in my 200 hr. Training with Gina Caputo. I hired my teacher for private mentoring sessions for almost a year after I graduated 200 hour training. It was a transformative experience. The Clinical plus the mentoring sessions were formative in developing the teacher I am today. I firmly believe that mentoring and a clinical should be a part of every teacher training.
The 165 hour mentorship program is designed to fold into a 300 hour teacher training, although, it's not a requirement. Teachers who already have a 300 hour certification, but want the mentoring experience can also take advantage of our program.
Some modules are open to the general public and some are not. The overall beauty of the mentorship program is to allow an organic application of what each teacher brings to the table. Everyone has a gift. It is my greatest pleasure to help them find and develop that gift. When we are completely aligned with our unique gifts and talents we can serve the world in a mighty way. And really, I believe that is why we are here!
