Introducing the YOGA TEACHER CONF – EMPOWER

Affordable workshops and a community just for Yoga Teachers!

Start or Grow Your Yoga Business

You know there’s a way to grow your business and make money teaching yoga but you just don’t know where to start or how to do it.

Our business classes will help you see what is possible, discover new ways to generate income and create a sustainable yoga business.

You’ll leave with a specific game plan that you can execute immediately!

Stand Out As A Yoga Teacher

Create yoga experiences that people want to come back for over & over again, even if you are new to teaching or don’t feel like you have found your voice as a teacher.

Our teaching skills classes will help you learn new creative sequences and tools to help re-inspire your teaching and stand out from the crowd!

Self-Care & Personal Practice

Your personal practice is often the first thing that disappears as a yoga teacher. Reconnect with your Self to inspire your students on a deeper level. 

You won’t just learn about self-care, you’ll practice self-care at the Haji Healing Outpost. Join our brave space of fellow yoga teachers and connect deeply with your personal practice and feel accepted just as you are.

The masterclasses at the Yoga Teacher Conf have been SO AMAZING! I feel so inspired and empowered as a teacher. The amount of value I receive from every training is enough to fill my cup for months!

Yoga Journey - Empower Chicago Yoga Teacher Conf

Your Yoga Teacher Journey Never Ends

As yoga teachers we give so much of ourselves and our energy to others and our own energy gets depleted. We end up burned out, overwhelmed, and not able to put much into our classes.

Invest in your own self-care and feel empowered to create more impact in your student’s lives.

It’s so wonderful to connect with other yoga teachers!!! It’s nice to know that other teachers struggle with marketing and teaching and that I’m not alone.

The Haji Healing Outpost

We don’t want you to just learn about self-care, we want you to PRACTICE self-care.

On Saturday, indulge in a variety of self-care practices to help nurture you as a teacher.

Community Shamonic Reiki

If you have been feeling sluggish, run down, blocked and burdened or otherwise in need of a pick me up, this is for you.

Candle Dressing Station

Infuse a candle with prayer adding herbs & crystals. Take it home and burn it as a prayer for 4 days.

Acupuncture

Recline in our zero gravity chairs as practitioners place up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. The NADA protocol helps restore your nervous system so you can relax and let the healing begin.

Self-Care Station

Indulge in a variety of self–care tools like self massage, coloring, foam rollers, blankets, rest, tea and more.

Haji Healing Salon

All services provided by the practitioners from Haji Healing Salon, a sanctuary space on the south side of Chicago activated by our tribe of teachers, healers, mystics and the community we serve. Learn more at www.HajiHealing.com
