It was such an amazing experience to be able to grow as a student and as a teacher in the Mentorship Program at Balanced Life Yoga. In the beginning I was very nervous. I wanted to be perfect. But my mentor taught me how to focus my energy and maintain a well nourished energy even if I anxious. Just hearing about how to maintain a relaxed and open energy allowed me to invite that into my assisting and my practice. I also became more comfortable in hands on assisting n and I learned how to move about a room with many people while still remaining unobtrusive. It is also wonderful to observe a senior teacher in action. It was an amazing experience. I recommend this to anyone who wants to deepen his or her practice and become a better teacher. -Casey, M.

“The Mentorship Program with Shasta at Balanced Life was an incredible opportunity to learn new skills, be of service, and grow as an individual. Having never acted as an assistant before, I really enjoyed learning how to be a great assistant and how to work as part of a team. This program also gave me the opportunity to practice the art of hands-on assisting skills and how to serve others. But for me, the greatest learning came from the personal development piece. Through the mentorship process, I was able to discuss my own personal challenges and receive unique instruction on how to deal with these issues through the yogic perspective. This was truly transformational and had effects not only on my yoga teaching and assisting, but also in my own personal life. Shasta is an extraordinarily empowering Mentor. She helps you not only see, but OWN, your inner power and abilities. After completing the Mentorship program, I feel more confident, capable, positive, and incredibly inspired to continue this journey of self-awareness and development.” – Shannon, Oshawa

I grew a little more each week. I felt confident greeting students as they came in to class, assisting them and supporting my teacher as well as observing her and being aware, staying open and trusting. As a teacher, I feel I have grown, become more confident and ready for the next step of teaching in a studio environment so that I can share these learnings with those who are ready to take the path of yoga and meditation as it is truly a transformative tool, one breath and one step /posture at a time. I have also learnt as a teacher that learning never stops as we continue to evolve. I feel I am truly blessed to be part of the Balanced Life Yoga community of teachers, students and friends who very generously share the teachings, experiences and positive healing energy with others. I am truly very grateful and blessed to part of this wonderful community. -Nalini, Ajax, ON.
