Yoga Teacher Mentorship
2 Spots available
Over the Years of working as a full-time yoga teacher, teaching thousands of group and private yoga classes, offering women’s circles, selfcare retreats and yoga teacher trainings I experienced over and over that it can be quite a challenge to establish yourself as a professional in an industry that is often undervalued and where many teach as a hobby. There are so many teachers out there offering classes at non-sustainable rates, that a lot of teachers seem lost at how to establish themself as a business. How to find adequate pricing, how to find students, how to stand out with your offerings and how to actually make a living from your profession as a yoga teacher. A little spoiler beforehand: It’s not just about making a living through full-time yoga teaching; the goal is to live comfortably from it as well. Teaching yoga is a wonderful profession that enables many to reconnect with themselves, and this positive impact should be reflected in your financial well-being. In a world where its socially accepted to get wealthy from all sorts of industries—some potentially harmful (tobacco, alcohol industry, processed food industry), others neutral (real estate, all sorts of business owners) or even beneficial (doctors, therapists) —there’s this odd notion that yoga teachers should be underpaid because “they love what they do” and “are on a spiritual journey”. As spiritual beings, our birthright is abundance, not poverty. To be a great yoga teacher, it’s essential that your basic needs, including financial stability, are met. Worrying about bills should not overshadow your ability to be of service. Even if you’re not solely responsible for your financial support due to having a supportive partner or parents, it’s still important to charge fair prices to maintain a balanced energy exchange.
This yoga teacher mentorship is perfect for you if you are a teacher in the first 5 years of teaching. You will learn how to skilfully set up your business, how to get a clear idea on your offerings, your prices, the income you need for yourself and how to confidently teach and sequence your classes.
This program will serve you if you are willing to do the personal work of self-inquiry, the humbling work of not knowing and not being perfect, and liberating process of exploring the freedom of entrepreneurship and moving despite of fear.

Meet the Teacher
“As spiritual beeings our birthright is abundance”
I am an experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) with a passion for both the magic and embodiment of yoga as well as the business of it. I taught thousands of yoga classes, took almost a thousand hours of training myself, have a degree in economics and run my own business since 2016, I understand the challenges of establishing yourself as a full-time yoga teacher. This can involve the economic side of it and it can also be quite a challenge to start teaching after you completed your first trainings. It takes quite a lot of courage to put yourself out there and step onto the mat in front of everyone with the teacher hat on. Therefore embarking on the journey of teaching can be both exciting and daunting. That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce a mentorship program tailored for yoga teachers like you. Having faced the challenges myself, I recognize the crucial aspects of getting your yoga business off the ground.
What women are saying
The self-care shakti Sunday retreat day held by Maria was nothing short of magical!
Maria holds space so beautifully, it was a truly transformational day. I highly recommend Maria for her yoga classes, retreat days/ weeks and I can’t wait to see what else she has planned to offer us lucky people in 2022
I’ve been attending yoga with Maria for quite some time and I can’t speak highly enough about her classes. She is gentle and compassionate and creates a sacred space that feels not only healing but also fun. I always feel rejuvenated and lighter after. Yoga is an amazing and therapeutic tool but the instructor really makes the experience and Maria does just that.
I recently completed Yoga MariSol’s Yin teacher training. It was the most incredible experience I could’ve asked for and felt like a combination of a beautiful retreat and teacher training. It exceeded expectations on all fronts from the yoga classes, Yin lectures, delicious food, and the incredible venue. The schedule was carefully thought out and I felt at home straight away. Maria is so gifted and I feel honored to be able to have done this training she offers. I will continue taking Maria’s classes on zoom from the UK as I’ve never met a teacher quite like her!
