    Episode 74: Why it's Important for Yoga Teachers to Have a Mentor with Special Guest Dominique Davis

    Episode 74: Why it's Important for Yoga Teachers to Have a Mentor with Special Guest Dominique Davis

    In this episode of the BEYOND YOGA TEACHER TRAINING Podcast, Host Sandy Raper shares a conversation with special guest, Dominique Davis about what a mentoring relationship looks like and how beneficial this relationship is for a yoga teacher. 

    Dominique Davis is a content creator, yogi, mother, and wife. Balance is a constant theme in Dominique’s life and at times, the scales do tip over.  Nevertheless, she can’t help but notice how her time on the yoga mat teaches lessons that directly align with her career, motherhood, and marriage. The flexibility of the mind, body, and spirit goes quite a long way.

    After the pandemic, Dominique’s love of the Law of Attraction was reignited.  Almost everything about our lives changed overnight and having coping skills was no longer optional.  Dominique recommitted herself to teaching others about the importance of presence, awareness, and building strength in times of quiet.

    The importance of connection drives Dominique’s work. In order for a human to openly connect to another human, they themselves must feel safe and grounded.  Dominique encourages self-development to the point of fearlessness in life’s experiences.

Joy Zazzera ,

A grounding & insightful resource for yoga teachers!

Sandy’s BYTT Podcast will help ground and steer you to hone in on your best qualities as a yoga teacher. Through her podcast Sandy’s insightful experiences spanning two decades of teaching combined with her natural ability and joyful personality to lead others in meaningful conversations. She introduces and explores topics that yoga teachers new and seasoned should be paying attention to, in order to enjoy an sustainable career and teach to the students they can best serve. I am an avid weekly listener and especially enjoy Sandy’s constant enlightening thoughts and encouragement to keep the emphasis on the teachings and to do the inner work for/and on ourselves in order grow or in Sandy’s own words, to EXPAND BEYOND! All episodes are valuable - begin from episode 1 but also go back an re-listen to the topics that resonate most because you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Sandy for sharing your gift and experiences!

Love this podcast!

As a former 300 hr yoga student of Sandy, I am delighted to have her podcast to continue and absorb from her wealth of knowledge. Whether her episode is with a guest or solo, it’s packed with valuable knowledge for the new, as well as seasoned, teacher.

BrownandBendy ,

A great listen for teachers and practitioners!

I love Sandy’s perspective. Her words are guided by her experience as a yoga teacher, not her ego. That’s what makes this podcast so easy to listen to. I’m given so many tools to better myself, without the shame that can be so present in the yoga studio community.

The guests that she brings on creates conversations that ground and humble one’s perspective of western yoga culture. Every episode makes me better ♥️
