Root to Rise Mentorship Program



MISSION: Root to Rise exists to develop, disciple, and empower yoga instructors who seek to refine their teaching proficiency, lead intentionally, and build community with purpose. 

If you would like to learn how to intelligently sequence a class, go deeper in the Word and learn how to minister through the modality of yoga, or build your ministry/business, THIS TRAINING IS FOR YOU!

You will have personal access to 3 coaches (Kristin Gibowicz, Jessica Mitchell & Amber Jaworsky) for 9 straight weeks on private, interactive webinars where you will learn about:

  • Teaching Yoga: intelligent sequencing, word/theme-weaving, precise cuing and one-on-one video evaluation of your teaching

  • Soul Care: determine your spiritual gifts, craft a personal rule of life, and receive training in 6 different spiritual disciplines for leading a healthy ministry

  • Business/Marketing: in-depth consultation on how to build, market and utilize social media for business/ministry

This unique "virtual" classroom experience with small class size and individual attention, ensures that each and every participant will be equipped to be effective and spiritually thriving yoga instructors.

What to Expect:

Program Duration: The entire program takes 9 weeks to complete

Weekly Online Webinars: Program activities are carried out through weekly content videos and mentorship webinars. Each week, participants will receive an email with instructional videos, homework and journaling prompts that will prepare them for their weekly group mentorship call. Mentorship calls will be held on Mondays (from 12 pm mst - 1:00 pm mst) and will be an open forum that allows participants to connect personally with the topic’s lead mentor. Participants will not only receive cutting-edge information on each topic area, but they will have group and individual access to each mentor, enabling rich and exponential growth. All sessions will be recorded, so if you are unable to attend the live training, a recording of the session can be emailed to you upon request. 

Teaching Evaluation: Each participant will be required to submit up to two videos of their yoga teaching, and will receive individual coaching and feedback to help them grow into highly effective yoga instructors.

Homework: There will be homework assignments outside the classroom that require 5-10 hours of attention per week. 

Required Resources: The following books will be resources for the Root to Rise Mentorship Program. We recommend ordering these books and reading as much as you can before the sessions starts to lighten the weekly homework load.
