Join Qoya teacher Sara Ballard for the Mentorship Circle, an extra teaching support program to get more individualized attention and feedback.
This is a safe and supportive place to practice, connect, and go a little deeper as a new Qoya teacher before attending the Intensive. There are things that cannot be taught, only embodied and understood by teaching on a regular basis. Mentorship Circles have been created to help bridge the gap between learning the basic structure of Qoya in the Initiation to fully embodying Qoya at the Intensive. We are here to support, encourage, and help you get feedback in real time, making it easier to jump fully into your personal practice, or teaching in your community.
This training will take place over 6 sessions (one hour each) via Zoom, an online webinar platform. Between each week's session, you will teach one Qoya class to someone in your community or another teacher in the circle and submit a feedback form to Sara for her suggestions. You also have the option for Sara to observe one of these classes during the course and provide direct feedback (only if you want - this is not required!).
