The true power of yoga is in how it influences our whole being.

How this works:

Our 300 Hour Living Well Teacher Training Program takes you on a journey of transformation. You are able to truly understand the power of yoga as a powerful tool for positive change as you experience it. One of the first things you will do on this journey is to be introduced to a personal mentor who will act as your personal guide through this journey.

Your personal mentor is recommended to you based on an intimate interview with our Program Director. During this interview, you will be asked to identify your obstacles & goals, health & lifestyle. After the interview process, a mentor, in this lineage, will be recommended to you. This relationship is the foundational support for implementing yoga into your daily life.

Your Personal Mentor will:

  • Act as your personal guide throughout the 300 Hr Yoga Teacher Training Program
  • Mold your daily practice based on your personal objectives
  • Offer support on 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training curriculum & materials
  • Provide teaching observation opportunties 
  • Critique & guide your course planning & development
  • Act as a personal liaison to ensure optimal growth beyond this teacher training program.

We encourage the initiation of this relationship before you even decide to commit to this training. This relationship is in addition to the actual training program. All fees associated with the mentor relationship are strictly between the student & the teacher. Most, if not all, students maintain their mentor relationship many years after training has concluded. All of our program staff actively participates in mentoring relationships.

We do our best to match each student with a primary teacher that compliments YOU.


This model of primary teacher relationship, as mentioned in the Taittirīya Upaniṣad, is the heart of yoga & is central to the teachings of Śri Krishnamacharya & Mr. TKV Desikachar. All Yoga Studies with the Yoga Well Institute are anchored in this yoga tradition. 

Mr. Desikachar dedicated his life to learning & living the teachings of his father, Śri Krishnamacharya. The teachings of Krishnamacharya are the foundation of our knowledge of yoga in the modern era & how to apply these practical teachings in our lives. Our lead faculty share decades of direct study with Mr. TKV Desikachar in this Yoga Teacher training curriculum.


On Mentor Relationships 

"[In talking with my mentor about my future] at one point in the conversation [my mentor] said 'I think you know what you are going to do' …when I got off the call I realized two things: 1) there are very few people in my life, if anyone else really, who I could hear that from & believe it & 2) I had absolute trust that he wouldn’t have said that if he wasn’t actually experiencing that & I have come to have a level of trust in this person’s capacity to see me clearly." ~ Elena W. 2015 Graduate


Shape each practice into an individual experience

 Yoga is a process of transformation. By focusing on the individual, yoga uncovers all obstacles preventing you from your most authentic life of wellness & joy. Yoga gives you the tools to identify & inspire your true self in all areas of life. Learn to uniquely apply yoga, meditation & spiritual practice into your personal way of being.

True change comes from within. By applying the principals of yoga, we can clear negative emotions, making space for positive habits & behaviors. We see this as our relationships become stronger & we encounter deeper spiritual awakenings.

As you live with this yoga practice, you will be guided to personal growth & transformation. With regular practice, yoga can change our thinking, behaviors & feelings. Give yourself this empowering process to truly strengthen your teaching style.
