FAQ

  • How is this training any different from all the other ones out there?

    (Besides the obvious - It includes an amazing retreat and you'll be done in a heartbeat!) One thing I know about teacher trainings, is there are a LOT of them. Big studios churn out endless teachers that sound like they're robotically repeating the phrases of their corporate brand. Not here. Here you won't be handed a set sequence to teach, you won't be required to believe in any particular philosophy, and we have zero interest in turning out endless teachers who all sound the same. We don't even care if you teach! The priority here is on learning. But we will ask you to be discerning, to work hard to know why you make your choices - not just in how you practice a certain yoga pose - but in every aspect of your life. All of our teachers have different backgrounds in yoga and you will be able to choose from which perspective to teach. You will learn from them all and decide which resonates with who you are, and more importantly, who you're becoming.

  • How can I make time for this?

    Another thing about trainings is that they're never convenient (or cheap! see next FAQ). Our lives are busy, stressful, complicated, you name it... and that will probably never change (real talk!). The best piece of advice I got when trying to figure out how I was ever going to take my first training was, "Just make it happen." Make it happen. Start to imagine what "support" would look like around this. Who can help with childcare? Taking off work? Helping with dinner? Picking up some responsibilities for just this month? Ask the people who have a vested interest in your happiness, who believe in you (read: don't look for support from someone who poo-poos your dreams). Who might want a favor repaid with some free yoga lessons 😊?? Just start talking. This is how magic happens.

  • How can I afford it?

    Trainings are never cheap. They're VALUABLE. They're worth so much more than money spent. A better question is can you afford not to? What is it worth for you to have a life with less stress? Less anxiety? Less fear? And how much would you pay to live with purpose? Peace? Deep self-love? Think about all the ways you spend money that don't deliver lasting happiness - shopping, alcohol, dining out, beauty treatments, the latest gadget, entertainment, expensive vacations.... One thing people can't foresee before they take a yoga training is that they won't spend money on those things like they used to. After this training, you'll have access to an experience of yourself that holds its value - felt as compassion, love, joy, and purpose. Need help with financing? We have a payment plan. Want more help? Let's talk.

  • What if I'm just not sure?

    No one has ever finished a training with me and regret doing it. As the lead for this intensive, you will spend most of your time with me and I will teach you what I know: precise alignment, unsurpassed clarity in cueing movements of the body, the art of weaving philosophy into the physical yoga, and how to dedicate your life to spiritual evolution. This is not just a job for me - it is my life. And besides, you already love yoga. It's worth your time, your money, and your commitment. Let's do this!

What past graduates are saying...

“Studying with Colleen transformed my entire practice and made me want to become a teacher myself. Under her instruction in teacher training, I learned the principles of alignment for asana, studied the Bhagavad Gita in depth, and dove into breath work and meditation. These incredibly thoughtful, valuable lessons taught me how to teach alignment-based, spiritually inspiring classes. Colleen's direct, honest feedback helped me refine my teaching style and find my confidence. Because of Colleen's encouragement and guidance, I feel ready and inspired to lead my own classes. ”
