Become The Best Yoga Teacher You Can Be.

Find the leader within.

The Jessica Dewar Yoga Online Mentorship Program is designed to advance your knowledge and confidence as a yoga teacher. Learn how to enhance the classroom experience for your students for optimal learning, connection and growth.

All too often we meet teachers who:

  • Lack confidence (which stops many teachers from even getting started)

  • Confuse their cues

  • Struggle to connect with their students

  • Struggle to KEEP students

  • Avoid physical adjustments as they’re not sure how

  • Lack creativity with sequencing

  • Are unable to deviate from a pre-planned class sequence (even if it is inappropriate for the students who are in attendance)

  • Are continually knocked back from teaching opportunities

  • Have poor business skills and are suffering financially

  • Don’t know how to build their own following and/or personal brand


If you can relate to any of the above, don’t worry. You’re not alone!

Whilst teacher training forms a foundation for your yoga journey, it doesn't necessarily prepare you to lead a clear, professional, and confident class.

The Jessica Dewar Yoga Online Mentoring Program focuses on real world teaching experience, helping you to step out of your comfort zone and transition into the leadership role of a yoga teacher. During the 3 month program, we will continually work through self-limiting beliefs around teaching yoga, encouraging you to move past them so you can become the best yoga teacher you can be.

Throughout the program, you will:

  • Have the opportunity to network with future leaders in the health and fitness industry

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of key skills required to effectively lead a yoga class

  • develop and deliver your personal brand

  • Communicate with experienced industry leaders and learn from their experiences

  • Contribute to invigorating discussions on current industry specific topics


Strip away obstacles that hold you back from delivering outstanding yoga classes and becoming a name in the industry


Our Online Mentoring Program will work with you, step by step, to help you develop confidence and accelerate your learning in the following areas so that you can become the successful yoga teacher you dreamed to be.
