300-Hour Teacher Training
In 1999, before the creation of the 300-Hour Program, Birgitte started mentoring at Yogaworks. The mentor relationship was originally how yoga was passed down to new teachers and YogaWorks continues this effective learning tradition.
After completing a teacher training, students back then, were encouraged to assist a senior teacher for six months, which on one occasion extended to two years. There was no curriculum or guidelines, but it was very personal and a helpful stepping stone for someone who was new to teaching and had a desire to teach at YogaWorks.
Once the 300-Hour Program was created, Birgitte continued to mentor and adapt to the new curriculum and format.
