We have the unique opportunity to be mentorship students of Ido Portal (inside of the Ido Portal mentorship program). We travel throughout the year to meet, and in a few days, we’ll be a week with our teacher, osmosing furiously.
Ido has been the vehicle for the paradigm shift that has taken root inside of us and that we aspire to reverberate into our own community. We have seen the message spread into our students and subsequently proliferate even further. There’s no greater pleasure than in being a carrier for this virus. To be a catalyst or facilitator in someone’s personal development is always a special experience, but the joy is doubled when it’s around something so profound as a movement practice.
From this mentorship, we’ve received firsthand instruction not only on how to practice, but also how to share. This practice is something we take seriously and we want to share it in the best way possible. Anybody who knows us well knows that we devote countless hours into thinking about our classes, projects, themes, that we are persistently evaluating student progress, individualizing and recalibrating ruthlessly. So when we are presented with a master pedagogue, we absorb everything possible – both the implicit and explicit guidance regarding the infinite parameters of the learning experience.
It’s a true blessing to have been along this journey with Ido for so long. For nearly a full decade now we’ve been following Ido’s work obsessively. And for the last several years, we’ve been following from within the Ido Portal mentorship program – joining a select few other schools and teachers around the world who share the same obsession. The program has fundamentally driven why, how, and what we teach.
