Katie Tetz is Energy Dwelling’s Studio Enterprise Supervisor and Bondi Studio Supervisor. She shares her expertise of getting Gina Brescianini as a private mentor.


All these years in the past once I stepped into my first yoga class, I by no means may have predicted how my journey as a scholar would evolve. And I most actually couldn’t have predicted that sometime I might be on the instructor’s mat. However because the years glided by, my love of yoga ultimately grew and I started to discover the thought of a 200HR yoga instructor coaching. All of a sudden, earlier than I knew it, I used to be standing on the instructor’s mat looking at my very first group of scholars. 

Anybody who walks down the trail of educating yoga is aware of how daunting it may be when beginning out. One of many biggest presents you may give your self as a brand new instructor is to discover a mentor to information you alongside the way in which!


Listed here are 3 issues I’ve gained from working with my mentor, Gina Brescianini.

  1. Develop a transparent focus for each class

There’s no simple method to eliminate that heart-thumping feeling earlier than you educate a category, however the primary factor I’ve realized from Gina is to be very clear about what you’ll educate. It sounds easy and apparent, however when there are such a lot of issues you may share along with your college students, it may be overwhelming for you (and for them if you happen to attempt to share it all of sudden!) 

Have a transparent educating level, and weave that educating level all through your class. It acts as a guiding mild, preserving your self and the scholars targeted. This one-pointed focus aids in us discovering what the yogis name dhyana, or focus. By staying aligned along with your educating level, you create a stronger class and provides your college students one thing clear and tangible that they will take into their subsequent apply. This straightforward factor helps flip all of the nerves into readability and confidence!

  1. Sequence for all ranges

One different tough a part of stepping onto the instructor’s mat is while you uncover that your college students will not be all on the identical degree; one other seemingly apparent aha second! However how do you handle the entire totally different ranges in a category because the instructor? That is when sensible sequencing, and having an skilled mentor that will help you develop methods is so helpful! 

Having an intelligently created sequence, with a transparent educating level, ensures that your courses are well-balanced, secure, and comprise the correct amount of issue and regressions for all ranges of scholars. As a instructor, adapting and creating sequences might be such a enjoyable a part of the method, the place your entire studying comes alive and clicks collectively. It’s so useful to have somebody with years of expertise to work on sequences with as they’ll allow you to sidestep among the combos that don’t move collectively. When you’ve a tremendous sequence that you’re excited and assured in sharing, regardless of who arrives to your class, it may possibly carry a way of accomplishment and pleasure, additionally taking your educating to a complete new degree. 


  1. Get suggestions and training in your educating

That is invaluable however might be exhausting to seek out when you end your instructor coaching and begin educating courses. Whereas it’s nice to listen to a scholar say that they favored your class, that suggestions isn’t the sort that’s going that will help you proceed to develop. There are such a lot of aspects of educating that carry a method collectively; your sequence, your power, your tone, your quantity, your precision along with your phrases, how a lot area you give or don’t give, and the record goes on! Most college students wouldn’t have the ability to articulate clear, trustworthy suggestions about the entire issues that carry a category or sequence collectively. 

Having a mentor to expertise your courses and provides suggestions on all of these components is so useful. Gina’s teaching at all times left me with clear, tangible, achievable, steps to take into my subsequent class. 

Through the years, Gina has been a mentor and an inspiration to lots of our lecturers at Energy Dwelling. She is so gifted at seeing what she calls the ‘superpowers’ we’ve, after which coaxing them out of us so we are able to go into our courses and be probably the most genuine instructor we might be for our college students. Generally these ‘superpowers’ – the issues that make us uniquely and brilliantly ourselves – get clouded with nerves, self-doubt, and the overwhelm that may happen after we first start our educating journey! I may have by no means seen the instructor that was in me with out Gina’s encouragement and expert steerage. Gina helped me remodel the overwhelm into simplicity, the nerves into readability, and the self-doubt into authenticity.


If you might be in search of mentorship it is very important ensure that the instructor coaching or instructor you might be working with is a method that you just like and wish to educate in, so be sure to are an energetic scholar in your yoga group, practising quite a bit and attending to know your lecturers. Discover out in case your studio affords instructor coaching or mentoring packages, and remember to specific overtly that you just wish to be taught from somebody skilled on a deeper degree.
