Mentoring is the guidance given between teacher and trainee, as well as the ongoing professional and personal guidance necessary for all yoga teachers, at all levels of experience, as part of the continuing journey of yoga. Yoga Australia strongly encourages all members, from level 1 to level 3 teachers to engage in mentoring. It is also a requirement that members who spent less than 6 months in training, receive mentoring in order to become full members. Yoga Australia has initiated a Register of Mentors to facilitate a modern culture of life-long mentoring that for centuries has been an integral part of Yoga traditions.
