Develop your teaching skills and deepen your knowledge.
The HAUM Mentorship Program provides a unique experience in continuing education. Over the course of three months, you will be guided through an in-depth examination of yoga studies, teaching skills, and asana practice that is tailored to meet you where you are as a teacher. Your HAUM team partner will help you elevate your own teaching, challenge you, and support you in finding your own voice.
Upon finishing my 200-HR YTT, I was intimidated to start teaching in San Francisco as there are so many incredible teachers. I started going to Danni’s classes and was immediately drawn to his energy, teaching style, and ability to create community. To this day, I’m inspired each time I step on the mat in his class. Through mentoring with Danni, he provided me with the confidence and skills to not only assist his classes but also to teach my own classes including corporate, online, and studio environments. I’m grateful to learn and grow with a mentor who has such a kind, inclusive, and inspiring heart.
PRIVATE MENTORSHIP SESSIONS
You will meet with your teacher biweekly, either in person or via Zoom, for a discussion session. These sessions will be structured to outline your goals and objectives and discuss your progress. You will also be given reading and writing assignments relevant to your interests.
PRIVATE ASANA PRACTICE
You are required to practice two asana classes per week with your teacher. Classes will be included in your tuition for the duration of your training.
OBSERVATION / ASSIST
Initially, you will observe your teacher’s class and have a brief discussion afterward to answer any questions that may have arisen regarding sequencing, assists, etc. If your teacher approves, you may begin to offer assistance in the class.
Toward the end of the program, you will have an opportunity to teach one full-length class. Your teacher will observe and provide feedback.
Your teacher will assign you reading and writing projects specially tailored to your personal intentions and what your mentor deems most appropriate for you.
I met Danni in public class 6 years ago. I’ve worked with him extensively for over a year in teacher training, continued education and mentorship. Danni is a champion for the full “underdog to becoming” version of you. Any knowledgeable teacher can present information about advanced asana, biomechanics, and philosophy – Danni translates principles of yoga so that you can connect, feel and live them everyday to your very core (see what I did there) He is an embodiment of yoga in human form. As a new yoga teacher, Danni helped me navigate my first studio classes and build my yoga business in a way that is aligned, sustainable and most critically inspired by true values of yoga and YOU. Deep bow to Danni and our community.
