Find your alignment:

physically, spiritually, financially

In an intimate group setting, focused on YOU, we’ll:

UNCOVER your unique path as a yoga teacher. Devise a strategy that’s right for you, whether setting up a studio, launching an online business, teaching one-on-one or fusing yoga with your job (whether your work is at an office or at home.)
LEVERAGE digital strategies to unlock revenue opportunities and boost your brand. Tips, tools and techniques to create a business plan that capitalizes on your strengths and dovetails with your lifestyle. Smart approaches to customer acquisition, including selling without being “sales-y.”
DEEPEN your offering with the proven benefits of myofascial release — a cutting-edge healing technique in great demand. Enhance your hands-on adjustments so you can offer both private and studio clients this powerful fusion of yoga and massage.
JUMPSTART your personal brand with a professional yoga photographer, included in the cost of the Mastermind! At the end of this 3-day workshop, you’ll have your own flattering headshots and personal promotional photos. Use these right away to help build your business. Invaluable, whether teaching in the online sphere or in a studio.

We’ll also take class, massage and meditate together in what promises to be a fun and memorable long weekend!

If I want to attend the full 9-day training with you and Lesley is there an additional discount for online YTT grads?

We’d love that, but right now the online and in-person trainings are run separately. However, we’re happy to guarantee you the early bird rate, regardless of when you sign up!

Can you help me find a roommate?

Doubling up is a great idea – fun and cost effective! We suggest booking your lodging (check cancellation policies) and inviting a roommate to join you. Airbnb’s are a great option too! The best way to find a roommate is to post in the Facebook Groups (we’ll also see it this way and can help facilitate connections as best we can).
