Why we need group mentoring
How the mentoring works
After being introduced to meditation in 1998, with my first meditation retreat in December 2000, I have had an established meditation practice for the last ten years. From 2003 to 2012, I was in therapy and this has significantly aided my teaching. I regularly see a supervisor who gives me support and guidance in doing this work.

What people say about this mentoring practice
"I just wanted to let you know how helpful and supportive I am finding the sessions. I've also met some teachers I'd not usually have met so a very positive experience."
"Excellent session yesterday. I am very grateful for it and took much away from it."
“Norman inspired my practice of Ashtanga, introduced me to my teacher Hamish, let me assist his classes and propelled me into the world of teaching yoga. He has mentored me throughout this process both formally (he was my Mentor when I did the Life Centre Teacher Training) and informally over countless coffees over many years. I have found his support and friendship invaluable. The Group Supervision Practice sounds like a valuable tool for committed yoga teachers. It formalises and gives space to explore difficulties and share expertise. It should help to shift us out of our individual ego-silos. I would recommend this project and Norman most highly.”

“This was a wonderful, supportive experience for me. I'm so grateful to Norman for providing the framework to help build confidence and reflection in my teaching.”
“I have known Norman to be a genuinely sincere practitioner, ravenous reader of the wisdom traditions and dedicated Ashtanga and Yin teacher. I would definitely recommend seeking him out.”

“I am so pleased to learn that Norman Blair is offering this unique group setting for yoga teachers. In this time of turmoil in the yoga world, it is imperative that we support each other in becoming the best teachers we can be. I wish all yoga teachers had the opportunity to gather and discuss the art of teaching in such a group. Thank you, Norman, for sharing your wisdom and devotion to yoga.”
