About the Ambassador & Mentorship Program

Our updated program will offer yoga teachers and yoga therapists ongoing support, education, and inspiration.

We're expanding our benefits to include two-hour monthly mentoring calls with Rodrigo Souza as well as an additional monthly one-hour guest presenter session.

These two monthly sessions will offer time for personal support and engagement. You’ll be able to get your questions answered and learn techniques for making your teaching truly equitable and accessible for all your students.

If you can’t join live, sessions will be recorded and you can watch them at your own pace.
