I Remember My First Yoga Class . . .
I came into class late, I was wearing tight jean shorts (yes, this was in the 90s), and I grabbed the wrong kind of mat. I thought yoga was going to be all about docile breathing and calming meditation with a gentle stretch thrown in here or there for good measure. Instead, the instructor, Jenny, was leading us through, sweaty Power Yoga postures, a rude affront to my then weak and tight muscles.
Though I was a brand-new student, I was able to get out of my head enough to realize that Jenny was a very skillful yoga teacher. She was guiding the class through powerful poses and demonstrating them with an air of graceful confidence, all sustained by her even, tempered breathing. I was impressed with the precise clarity of her words and movements. Even though I had never met Jenny before, in a few short minutes I felt confident to do what she was asking me to do. The poses she was suggesting were intense yet somehow her expert instruction gave me a solid confidence that I could not only survive in these poses but thrive in them. In addition to the poses, somehow Jenny offered a tacit invitation for mental focus and stillness, something I desperately needed at that time in my life. I walked out of that class feeling like I had discovered an unknown part of myself, a part of me I wanted to understand better. That class started me on a fascinating new path of self-discovery. Who knew that from that moment on, yoga would change my life forever?
Surely it was the introspective power of yoga that drove my journey of self-discovery, but I’ll always be grateful to Jenny for skillfully facilitating that journey. Eventually the pathway of yoga practice led me to the practice of yoga teaching. Truly, I'm a yoga teacher today, in part, because of Jenny.
I’ve been teaching yoga now for 16 years. Recently, I was humbled to hear from two different students who told me they chose to become yoga teachers because of something I said or did in one of my yoga classes. And more than the rare occasion to inspire someone to become a teacher, I’m humbled and thrilled by the regular opportunity to make sometimes simple and sometimes profound benefits for people’s lives by teaching them good yoga. Teaching and practicing yoga has made my life soulful and rich. One of my deepest passions is teaching great yoga.
Through my many years of teaching, I’ve learned volumes about myself and the art of effective teaching. I’ve discovered my own voice and my own unique gifts. One of the essential things I’ve learned through experience and observation is that each teacher has unique gifts and will touch the lives of students in ways that nobody else can.
I believe that the world needs excellent yoga teachers. One of my passions is to help yoga teachers achieve excellence by first helping them understand then source their own unique gifts and through those gifts to change the world for the better. I draw upon the trial-and-error of my many years of teaching experience to help teachers reach teaching excellence quicker and better than I did.
17 years ago, I discovered yoga by accident and never would have guessed that I’d become a career yoga teacher, earning anywhere from $4k-12K a month doing something I love and which also serves people so directly.
Here’s a snapshot of my experience: I’ve logged more than 20,000 hours of teaching in studios, private sessions, private groups, therapeutic sessions, mindfulness classes, corporate yoga classes, retreats, masterclasses, workshops, and lectures, and several teacher training programs.
Yoga teaching has sent me to Korea, Croatia, Spain, Greece, Italy, Costa Rica, and India. I’ve taught rock stars, movie stars, house wives, struggling teenagers, and stressed out college students and CEOs. I’ve worked with Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 tour, been featured in High School Musical the movie, and helped ease the tired nerves and sore muscles of Broadway performers (STOMP). I’ve been featured in Yoga Journal, and multiple times in Mantra Magazine. I’ve written for Conscious Living News, Elephant Journal, and my yoga blog was considered by Thoroughly Reviewed as one of the top 25 yoga blogs in the nation and listed in Top 10 Yoga Blogs of the week by Elephant Journal. Almost ten thousand people have listened to my meditations on the international meditation website and app Insight. I’m a Lululemon and Hugger Mugger Ambassador. I regularly teach international yoga retreats and have hosted over 50 local retreats. I’ve taught and directed dozens of teacher trainings. I’m regularly invited to teach out of state, present at conferences, and offer workshops. I know how to run my own business as well as how to partner with a studio to contribute to its success.
At the end of the day, I’ve had some thrilling experiences teaching yoga. I feel like I’ve helped make both big and little differences in people’s lives and am doing my part to make the world a better place. Every day I wake up and pinch myself that this is what I get to do for a living.
I’ve been able to make a comfortable living to support my family by teaching yoga. I’m getting paid to do what I love. Plus, yoga is constantly teaching me more and more about myself and I believe that all of this is still just the beginning of my career.
I’ve had so many incredible (and often challenging and heart-breaking) experiences in these many years of teaching which has formed me and formed how I teach, including the quality of my teaching. But I could have learned most of it much easier, cheaper, and quicker if I would have had a mentor, someone to guide me along the way.
Let me be YOUR yoga teaching mentor!
I want to give you crucial inside secrets and teach you what took me yeeeeears to discover by trial and error with a personalized, one-on-one yoga teaching mentorship. In 6-12 weeks, you’ll have all the tools necessary, and be well on your way to being an exceptional teacher who knows and understands how to use your unique gifts to benefit the world with a vital service while also supporting yourself financially by doing what you love. Exceptional teaching will feel exceptionally natural. Plus, you’ll learn how to create and find the myriad well-paying yoga opportunities around you and abroad.
“But how can I quit my day job, there just aren’t enough teaching opportunities for me to make a living?”
I’ll let you in on one of my insider secrets . . . there are many more good-paying yoga teaching opportunities than there are qualified teachers to teach them. I have so many opportunities to teach good-paying yoga gigs that I end up giving most of them to other qualified teachers.
May I offer something I strongly believe, something I've learned through experience:
When you serve the world with your unique gifts, the world will serve you back energetically, financially, and spiritually.
Sometimes you need a little direction to help turn your talents into a paycheck. That’s where I want to help. I want to help you refine your unique gifts and give you the insider scoop on how to leverage those gifts to be paid what you’re worth to make this world a better place.
I learned an astounding yet simple formula for success from a really cool business prof I had in college. He stated simply, “Interest breeds excellence. Excellence breeds opportunities.” This formula for success has changed my life—it gave me the courage and opportunities to make a living doing something I love. It’s changed the lives of several people I’ve worked with and it will change yours, too.
Harold Whitman said, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.”
If you’re interested in yoga and teaching yoga, by acting on that interest, you’ll gain excellence. Invariably, astounding opportunities will come as a result. I’d like to help you reach and refine your personal teaching and business excellence.
I’d love to work with you to:
· Build confidence by expanding what you learned in your 200-hr. or 500-hr. training and honing your skills with advanced alignment and anatomy principles, hands-on assists and adjustments, sequencing, long-term curriculum, etc.
· Learn how to build a loyal client base to fill classes, privates, workshops, and retreats
· Build a business, make a website, and learn how to treat teaching yoga like a business
· Learn how to build a curriculum to teach master classes, workshops, series, and retreats
· Be paid what you’re worth to serve people and offer a crucial service to the world by doing something you completely love
I recently finished a great mentorship with an exceptional teacher, Danelle. Here's what she said:
"Doing training with Scott Moore was a gift. When I began the program I was thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from such a balanced and articulate teacher and yogi.
With Scott as a teacher I was gently guided into a deeper understanding of myself on emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels without any stereotypical ‘yogic hype.’
With Scott as my mentor through my yoga journey, I have always felt an underlying sense of partnership.
When I lose sight of this or feel that the answers are out of my grasp, I approach Scott for answers and advice and he invariably shows me the way back to myself, to my intuition. He encourages me to trust yoga and the philosophy and the inherent truth that I am already enough. This is the ultimate gift anyone can give another. Scott’s gentle strength and guidance has been a light along the path to understanding myself."
“So, what does a mentorship program look like?”
The mentorship will last 6-12 weeks, depending on your needs. It starts with a phone call. We'll talk about your situation, desires, and basic direction, then I will give you some self-discovery and strengths-finding homework. We’ll set up a time to meet either by phone, Skype, or in person to discuss what you found out about yourself. Next, we will establish what your long-term/short-term goals are and start to insert my curriculum into your personal mentorship based on what you need and want.
From there, we will have 6 half-hour meetings once a week either by phone, Skype, or in person, where we discuss your progress. Prior to our call, you’ll fill out a call-prep sheet to optimize and give direction to our conversation.
Based on your needs, we will also meet for longer, in-depth personal training sessions where we get to work together toward things specific to your needs, anything from refining your teaching skills, building a website, making retreat curriculum, working on sequencing, getting comfortable with assists and adjusts, getting corporate gigs, etc.
One of the best tools to help me grow as a teacher was regular feedback to my teaching. If you're close enough to do so and depending on needs/desires, I may attend your classes or and give you feedback and I'll have you attend my and other E-RYT 500-level teacher’s classes. If you live outside of Salt Lake City and are interested in feedback, you can send me video of your classes for feedback.
