In the fall of 2013 I challenged myself to take the yogaworks 200 hour teacher training. Not knowing if I would teach but realizing I wanted to deepen my practice, I entered into the six month training. I was working full time and knew it would be difficult but not impossible. I can say that I was challenged physically, emotionally and intellectually. It is not for the “faint of heart”. It is a lot of work and takes commitment. This experience changed my life in ways I couldn’t imagine…

I found the courage to leave a job that no longer served me and found so much more. I am grateful for the teacher training. My spirit is light, my heart is full and my body is strong. Whether you enter into this because you have a desire to teach, want to challenge yourself to deepen your life experience or any other reason, you will be surprised at what you find in yourself and others.

seasonal alignment mentorship program: for yoga teachers and dedicated students


Helping yoga teachers and dedicated students use seasonal alignment and yoga to support themselves, influence their community and build their practice.

This Program is for Yoga Teachers, Studio Owners, and Dedicated Practitioners.

Why Choose This Program?

As a yoga teacher or studio owner, you spend a lot of time giving of yourself. You create your classes and workshops, pour out your time and energy to your students and try to maintain your own personal practice. It can leave you feeling depleted, uncreative and just stuck on how to best practice or support yourself and therefore your student community. I know this sounds crazy but it’s true, a lot of yoga teachers are not living balanced lives!

With this 4-month online mentorship program, you will learn how to seasonally align yourself, your personal practices and your teaching to best support you and your community. When you feel good, your classes are well balanced, you stay inspired and creative, and your students see and feel the difference.

What We Cover

Month 1: We start with a Body Audit

We take inventory of how and what your yoga practice looks like physically. What issues, injuries or physical challenges do you have? We create a seasonally based practice for yourself incorporating functional movement, asana and sequencing. I help you translate this to your students. Body is the 1st Pillar of Yoga. Asana should be pain free, balanced and energy giving, not depleting.

Month 2: We move to Seasonal Breath

How are you breathing? Breath is life and pranayama is the 2nd Pillar of Yoga. Different breath techniques are appropriate for different people and at different times of the year. We dive deep into pranayama and the energy body to create a breath practice for you and cover how to teach it to your students. Everything is energy and how we breathe directly shapes our energy.

Month 3: Mind Mapping

Your mind is one of the most powerful tools you have. In yoga, deeply ingrained mental patterns are called samskaras. Some samskaras are helpful, they create positive habits that move us along in our personal evolution. Some however are not. Some mental habits keep us stuck and mired in negative or untrue thinking. We can reprogram our mental habits and create focus and clarity through meditation. Mind is the 3rd Pillar of Yoga because it’s so influential in our lives.

Month 4: Constitutional Nutrition

There are a million fad diets and a ton of conflicting information about what is the best way to eat. There isn’t one way for everyone, but there is a good way for you and it varies throughout the year. We cover seasonal eating and responsive dieting so you can feel your best. Diet is the 4th Pillar of Yoga because it directly impacts our health and well-being.

You Dont Have To Be A Yoga Teacher

Are you dedicated to your yoga practice and want more? Do you need help with what to practice and want to know the more subtle techniques of yoga? Do you want your yoga practice to spill over into all areas of your life? This could be the program for you to go much deeper with your practice. If you aren’t a teacher, we’ll leave out the content focused on teaching and add more just for you!
