Personal mentorship with Marcel Allbritton provides critical support for healing, personal, and professional application of Yoga in one’s life.
“Having a point of reference is absolutely necessary. We need somebody who can hold a mirror in front of us. Otherwise we very quickly begin to imagine that we are perfect and know it all. This personal connection cannot be replaced by books or videos. There must be a relationship, a real relationship, one that is based on trust.”
― T.K.V. Desikachar, The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice
During mentoring sessions we discuss your practice and your experiences with practicing and working with the principles of Yoga. We also modify and revise your practice in order to insure that you are making progress with your growth, development, and personal goals.
HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT IT ENTAILS
I mentor health practitioners, Yoga Therapy students, and integrative health practitioners in the study, practice, and professional application of Yoga. This mentoring is guided by a personal practice. The only way to really learn the principles of Yoga, meditation, or mind body practices is experientially. In my mentoring I support the development of the individual and guide them in practice, study, and application of the principles of Yoga.
“Yoga mentoring with Marcel guided me to think about my challenges in a way that moved from wow this really sucks into huh, this is really interesting. I started to see the challenges I was facing not just as being a martyr or a victim, but instead each challenge becomes an opportunity to find out more about myself.”

“One of the things that I’ve appreciated so much about working with you is that you have an appreciation for psychology and neuroscience and the unconscious mind. You bring all of those elements together. Most people only know yoga or they only know psychology, and it’s been fun for me to work with somebody like you who gets it all.
When I came to see you, I thought mind-body practices could be good for some of my clients but I wanted to experience it myself first. Working with you has really helped because when I refer clients to you and we talk about their experiences, I know what they’re talking about.
A key component to psychotherapy is the relationship that I form with my clients. What you do with one-on-one yoga works that way too. If it were just about having the knowledge then we wouldn’t have a job because there are thousands of self-help books. But healing doesn’t work that way for the majority of people. There has to be a relationship with a guide that allows for feeling safe and trusting to help you go to that next level.”

“I began working with you while I was training to be a coach. As a coach my role is to facilitate and be a knowledgeable guide, a companion for somebody on a change journey. Coming to work meetings after a session with you where we talk about the goal of being a mix of alert and at ease, I feel confidence in my ability to find that balance. It influences my conversations and my relationships.”

“During our first session, you gave me a personal practice, tailored to what you had observed about me. Driving home I noticed how different I felt. I was hooked. I have done a Marcel-designed personal practice every day for the last 10 years.
Working with you and doing my practice, a window into myself began to open. I came in with absolutely no interest in transformation. I just wanted to learn how and why meditation works. Now I’m a transformation addict. I keep gaining new awareness of who I am and how I experience and navigate my internal and external worlds.”
