program DETAILS

OFSY’s Vinyasa Apprenticeship Program is an extension of our 200-Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training and is designed specifically to provide recent graduates and new yoga teachers the opportunity to gain real-world teaching experience and refine their skills under the guidance of an Om Factory mentor. Each 12-week mentorship is custom-tailored to match up the needs of the apprentice with a mentor who can best support their development. 


The process of working with a mentor provides space for new teachers to identify their target areas of growth, to cultivate their unique strengths, and to receive feedback for accurate self-assessment. The role of your mentor is to help you clarify your vision as a teacher, establish your authenticity, integrate your knowledge into the classroom, and guide you in creating an uplifting experience for students.
