Unlock Your Full Teaching Potential: Embrace the Journey of Growth and Empowerment with a Transformative Mentorship Program


Mentorship empowered me to confidently and authentically teach yoga and mindfulness to children. With the guidance of a mentor, I discovered the freedom to explore and adapt my teaching approach. Through their support and reflections, I refined my classes and fostered deeper connections with my students, ultimately making a profound impact on their lives. Now I'm ready to share the wisdom I've gained with you!

"Mount Saint Mary’s University, Los Angeles requested a customized workshop around wellness and journaling for our self-care series for our staff and faculty. This was our first time hosting such an event and we were blown away by Abigail’s knowledge, professionalism and ability to foster engagement and connection over zoom. We have received such positive feedback from our staff and this positive feedback from staff continues to come in weeks after the event. They have a new outlook on journaling and were excited to share their routines with us! Thank you Abigail for hosting this wonderful self-care workshop around wellness and journaling for our staff! We had such a great turnout and we will definitely hire Abigail again for future wellness workshops. It was such a pleasure and honor to work with Abigail!"

Abby is someone whose heart pours out of of the work that she does. I’ve worked with her in groups and 1-1 and have learned so much. She has had an incredible impact in my ability to share mindfulness with kids, & I can say honestly I wouldn’t be where I’m at today if it was not for her.
Whether you want to bring her to your school, have her work with your child, or are a teen looking for support, highly would recommend making Abby your choice. You’ll get someone wholeheartedly present and invested in making and impact.

It is clear that Abby has a passion for what she does. I highly recommend Abby for anyone who wants to teach mindfulness and yoga to kids or anyone who is looking for a thoughtful, supportive , and fully engaged Mentor.
Abby taught me the language and subtleties of teaching mindfulness and yoga to kids that would have taken me much time and experience to learn. Abby not only provided invaluable insight but she increased my confidence so I could focus on the joy of teaching!
It’s one thing to journal and reflect on what went wrong and what went right after each class you teach. It’s a whole other experience to have a guide by your side. Abby helped me turn my vision and ideas into reality. She provided practical insights that I could implement immediately to become a better teacher in a short amount of time.
My confidence in teaching and my outcomes improved dramatically after each session with Abby and I am so grateful she chose to do this work.

No. While a background in yoga can be helpful, what's most important is having a deep understanding of child development, a passion for working with children, and a willingness to learn and grow in your practice.

What kind of time commitment is required for the mentorship program, and is it flexible to accommodate a busy schedule?

The time commitment can vary depending on your goals and what you want to gain from kids yoga and mindfulness mentorship. During the discovery call, we will get clear about what you want from the program and will figure out the time it will take to achieve your goals!

Do I have to be a yoga or mindfulness teacher to teach kids?

Mindfulness is paying attention in the present moment with kindness and curiosity. Mindfulness activities foster connections for children internally and externally. We practice mindfulness to foster connection to ourselves (increasing self-awareness), others (developing compassion and empathy), and our surroundings (increase awareness of how our surroundings impact us).

What is yoga?

 Yoga is not only a physical practice, but also a way of life that promotes health, well-being and inner peace. It can be practiced by people of all ages and abilities and has shown to have numerous physical, mental and emotional benefits. Yoga activities include breathwork, movement, focus practices, and relaxation.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness and yoga support teachers in managing stress and preventing burnout, essential for the demanding nature of the profession. Mindfulness and yoga practices aid teachers in regulating emotions, leading to improved interactions with students and colleagues.

 How can Yoga and Mindfulness support classroom teachers and staff?

Mentorship and professional development support individuals in their growth and learning. While professional development focuses on organized activities to acquire new knowledge and skills, mentorship offers personalized, ongoing guidance from an experienced individual. Both approaches lead to improved abilities, new perspectives, and enhanced performance.

Is there a difference between Professional development and personalized mentorship?
