Students also have the opportunity to apply for a Mentorship Program with Danielle. The program includes 12 personal meetings or Skypes with Danielle about you! You will make the choice of working with her privately when she is in your area (every other month) or via Skype, or a bit of both. Students choose their path. Some teach a practice to Danielle or a group of their students while she observes. She then gives you personal feedback for growth in that type of teaching. You could choose any level or style to teach such as Flow, Core Flow, Therapeutic, Yoga for special populations, yoga for elderly, etc. Others have used portions as private lessons or life plan meetings. Whatever you choose, Danielle has seen this create successful teachers. All of the teachers at Honest Yoga have gone through this part of the leaning process. Danielle herself did this type of a program with a mentor in the early 2000’s. It catapulted her career.
