FOR YOGA PROFESSIONALS
Mentoring and supervision are mandatory in many therapeutic professions, psychotherapy and counselling being two examples. Within the field of yoga, mentoring and supervision are considered compulsory by accreditation entities for yoga therapists and is best practice for yoga teachers.
During classes and therapy sessions, yoga professionals will be presented with challenging situations with which they will benefit from guidance and support. Regular mentoring for those who offer trauma-informed work is highly recommended.
Mentoring provides them with the opportunity to share their concerns with a more experienced professional. The mentor will help with all aspects of professional conduct, personal development and well-being as well as guidance for dealing with a client’s particular health concern.
A mentoring session may consider the following:
Difficult interactions / experiences
Asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy
Private client work/individual work
Risk assessment, suicide risk, managing risk
Child protection and Safeguarding
Scope of practice
