Apprenticeship Program

The Apprenticeship Program is a teaching mentorship between the apprentice and Cathy. The goal of the apprenticeship is to deepen the teaching techniques and style of the apprentice. This is achieved by one-on-one sequencing sessions, Cathy observing your live public classes by video or in-person and providing feedback on: sequencing, voice and cueing, hands-on assists, habits and teaching techniques. Each apprenticeship is tailored to meet the goals of the apprentice by first identifying teaching gaps- areas where the apprentice feels like they need more training, or refinement and working together to bridge the gaps.


Why do an apprenticeship? There’s nothing quite like the student/teacher relationship for building the skills you need and advancing your techniques as a teacher. The experience of working one-on-one provides you with direct access to your mentor and creates an individualized learning experience like no other. You will learn to examine your teaching truthfully, without ego with the sole purpose of becoming a better teacher. Cathy provides guidance to challenge you to think critically and become the best version of yourself as a teacher. Working together, a new level of teaching is achieved.

Read what Yoga teachers have to say about the apprenticeship program:

“I wanted to continue to grow as a teacher but wasn't ready to commit to a 300-hour program. Apprenticeship with Cathy Madeo offered the perfect solution. Cathy helped me to recognize and appreciate my strengths and get clear on my goals. Through her guidance, I refined the pacing of my classes and increased my confidence to give hands-on assists. Cathy's program sharpened my sequencing skills and gave me practical tools to plan anatomically intelligent and well-balanced classes. I finished the apprenticeship a stronger, more inspired teacher. If you are looking to up-level your teaching, Cathy is a model mentor who can get you to where you want to be!” James Maher, Yoga Instructor 200 Hour RYT

”After teaching yoga for 3 plus years, I was given the opportunity to do an apprenticeship under the guidance of Cathy Madeo. I am so grateful I had this chance, because it truly gave me the tools to become a better teacher.  She attended my classes over the course of 3 months, then would lovingly offer a critique of the class. I was given assignments that helped further my understanding of anatomy, alignment, hands on adjustments, and yogic philosophies. She took time out of her busy schedule to sit with me, one on one to answer any questions or concerns, and challenged me to dive deeper into myself so I can be of better benefit to my students, and also further strengthen my own personal practice. I am eternally thankful for the experience. Cathy has worked extremely hard for her expansive knowledge and continues to help serve her “tribe” of teachers and students. If given the opportunity to do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat. Working with her is a true pleasure.” Gina Gross, Yoga Instructor 200 Hour RYT
