Training Overview

Do you want to take your teaching and life to the next level?  To go deeper?  To broaden your range?  To learn among an inspired community of other teachers, creatives, and seekers who crave more?

Artful teaching is your willingness to reach into the depths of your heart to find the words, the trust, and the courage to offer experiences that move, enrich and transform people’s lives.

This 300-hour nondogmatic and heart-centered training is designed for the full-time yoga teacher in mind, or the yoga-lifer who loves teaching and wants to keep growing and sharing.  We understand your heart’s desire to know more about this discipline that has shaped so much of who you are today, and to deepen or learn new practices to make you more vibrant and full.

Whether you choose to delve into the entire program or pick among the six specialty content-based modules, this training will have you walk away feeling more confident in your ability to share what you love in your own organic way.  Plus, you’ll leave with lifelong tools to accelerate your vision for work and life. You’ll rejuvenate your love for your practice, and develop a strong, self-supporting confidence to elevate your teaching and build a creative life that is healthy and thriving.

This training combines inquiry (personal development and reflection) with an investigation (exploration of new concepts, modalities, and resources) so that you come away:

  • ROOTED in what you know
  • EXPRESSIVE of who you are
  • SOULFUL in holding space
  • DIVERSIFIED in what you offer
  • EMPOWERED to share your gifts
  • and ever EVOLVING

Module 5 | EMPOWERED


do you teach from an empowered place?

Times | 9am - 4pm each day

Is it time to hear your truest voice come out of hiding? To talk about the body and soul in ways that speak the most true for you? 

Has your voice been squelched from past trainings or systems dictating what you should or shouldn’t say? Have you ever been restricted in your expression, that you shouldn’t sound spiritual? Or chant? Or say too much? Do you worry that you have nothing to say? Are you overthinking your classes? Are your expectations getting in the way of trusting your instincts?

We observed everyone freeze in horror in one of our past teacher training modules when we asked students to volunteer to teach. It occurred to me that at one time or another we all suffered a trauma when given feedback in trainings. There we are pouring our hearts out, doing our very best to hit all the notes expected of us, only to expose ourself to the scrutiny of our teacher pointing out where we went wrong. 

No wonder we balk in horror when we're asked to teach to a group of teachers! No wonder we still get nervous if we stray from teaching skills that might have been programmed into our brains! 

If this is you we understand. We have been there. 

Then you will want to join us for our fifth module in July, Empowered. 

  • This module will have the deepest impact on you as a teacher right now.  
  • This will be a safe space to test run ideas you have been bursting to try.
  • This will be the sweetest time to listen and articulate exactly what makes your teaching feel the most alive. 
  • This will be the chance to realign your voice to reflect your own powerful truth.
  • This will be the time we no longer need to parrot or repurpose what we think others want to hear.

This will be the training where you will walk away feeling more confident in your consistency as a teacher and more relaxed and available to make stronger lasting impacts in all of your classes — whatever style of yoga you teach. And have a lot more fun showing up for your classes no matter who is there.

EMPOWERED can be taken independently or as a part of your YA 300HR certification.  With our unique curriculum and pay per module pricing, modules can be taken in any order.


  • $600 with commitment for whole year

Module 6 | evolving


Evoloving | september 24-29, 2018 |  Chicago, IL

As teachers, our most important contribution to our work is that we stay committed students.  We must seek out teachers, resources and communities that feed our work, our vision, our sense of integrity in all we do.  We must set time aside to study, observe, and create.  And, the reality is, that's sometimes hard to do.  In order to keep EVOLVING as teachers, we have to figure out our own unique way to juggle our home life, our social life, our work life and our creative life.  

In EVOLVING we get honest with where we're at right now, where we want to be in the future and we devise a clear path to get there.  This module is designed to help generate creative momentum, create accountability and solidify a sustainable work/life balance.
