hustle & flow
this 5-module yoga teacher mentorship meets you right where you are and delivers you to exactly where you hope to be. learn to fall in love with your practice, offer intelligently crafted classes, and share your message with wisdom, confidence, and integrity. be excellent.
the sticky reality is this: for better or worse, yoga has become a market. and the market has become saturated. with 200-hour teacher trainings as the life raft keeping many struggling yoga studios afloat, training courses are ubiquitous, and they vary wildly in quality and structure.
having participated (as a student and as a teacher) in a handful of these, i understand that there is just no way to truly master the art of the practice, let alone the skill set required to teach, in a few short weeks or months. the problem is, yoga teachers are still expected to be part guru, part life coach, part physical therapist…all on the shaky foundation of this really surface level training.
i believe in the future of this practice, and i believe that yoga and mindfulness have far-reaching benefits. so this mentorship is my humble attempt to re-infuse this practice and this industry with authenticity, integrity, and genuine knowledge and wisdom.
come home to the practice and receive it as it was designed: individually and medicinally. commit to breaking the cycle that prioritizes dogma over authenticity, or followers over teachings, and come home to your deepest truth.
- 8 assignments based on your goals. (please expect to invest a minimum of 2-3 hours a week on personalized homework.)
- guidance in developing a final project (i.e. workshop, lecture, class series, retreat).
- 4 live calls, 60 minutes each spaced out in accordance with your schedule and goals.
- feedback on 4 classes or practices. (these will be recorded and sent to me.)
- unlimited email support.
- 50% off private yoga sessions for the duration of your mentorship (up to 10 sessions).
- relocation guidance for those considering becoming a traveling yoga teacher.
- access to a global network of coaches, teachers, healers, designers, strategists, and program graduates to further catalyze your development.
- a catalogue of suggested reading and continuing education materials beyond the scope of what’s in the program.
- a customized letter of recommendation upon completion up to six months after graduating.
excellence in practice
come back to your foundations and uncover your highest why as a practitioner and as a teacher. learn how to show up to the parts of your practice that you resist, clear limiting beliefs, and design a practice that exists as a reflection of who you are. live a yogic life guided by your own inner compass.
driving the vehicle of anatomy
yoga anatomy is typically taught by dividing the body into parts, naming each part, and explaining how they move. i liken it to this: you don’t need to know all the parts of your car in order to drive! so let’s return to anatomy and physiology from a functional perspective to gain bodily awareness and mastery.
the architecture of flow
intelligently and creatively sequence flows. by respecting the body and using the shapes as medicines, we invite a more nourishing and playful experience. open yourself to discovering the unique body philosophy that already lives in you. this skillset applies to individual flows as well as curating sequences for workshops and retreats.
adding poetry to the motion
an awareness, both new and old, is dawning in the yoga community that favors verbal cues over physical adjustments. as our culture begins to remember the importance of listening, both to ourselves and to our teachers, we can enrich our asana classes with another layer of beauty by coming into our unique voice as a teacher and by delivering a class clearly and effectively.
zen and the art of the hustle
while later in your journey, you will receive students based on your excellent reputation, the initial momentum is from stepping into vulnerability and sharing what you have to offer. we call on conscious entrepreneurship to participate in this industry with integrity and get down to brass tacks: cancellation policies, branding, and social(ly responsible) media.
who is this for?
this mentorship is genuine hard work. no way around it! therefore it is NOT for those who are unwilling or unable to put in real time, real effort, and real love. if you are not ready, if you are not serious, if you are hoping to pay a really expensive babysitter to hold your hand and spoon feed you a practice, this is unapologetically not for you.
