The Yoga Teacher Mentor
by Jess Glenny
A Reflective Guide to Holding Spaces, Maintaining Boundaries, and Creating Inclusive Classes
How do we generate enlivening relationships with our students? Create welcoming and inclusive spaces? Navigate common ethical issues? Remain inspired as we encounter the routine challenges of teaching yoga day-to-day? Full of practical information for new teachers, this book is also much more than a beginner's guide, considering questions that continue to arise through the course of a teaching life.
With reflective and experiential exercises throughout, the book is designed to create different lenses through which teachers of all stripes and vintages can view difficult situations and amplify their understanding of what it means to hold rich and meaningful classes. The intention is to invite self-reflection and offer possibilities, without being prescriptive. Emphasising the need for yoga teachers to know about more than alignment and sequencing, The Yoga Teacher Mentor accompanies the reader through the rich, complex and rewarding process of teaching yoga.

This is a great book for all yoga teachers, whatever your experience or form of yoga you teach. It's knowledgeable, kind, accepting, honest and helpful - just like Jess, the author. I am lucky to have her as my mentor. This book will stand you in good stead, I urge you to treat yourself.......and your students!
Yoga teachers and would-be yoga teachers, this is such a great read: Covering areas that aren't always considered during a training ...and some rarely spoken of, except in hushed tones with close friends. Enquiring into things that come up for all of us in this strange business world of teaching yoga.
Spoken from the heart and from years of personal experience, including lots of really helpful examples, tips and tools. It's accessible, funny, serious, and highly recommended to anyone who's chosen this path.
Really enjoyed reading this as a relatively new teacher it shares great insights, would thoroughly recommend to readers.
