Yoga teachers gathering in Denver!

ELEVATE Your Yoga Teaching Career

TBD April 2023  |  Denver, CO

Allison Rissel

Feeling lonely and isolated fellow yoga teacher?

The last few years have been isolating and lonely for many yoga teachers as we all learned to pivot, taught on Zoom and saw our beloved studios close.

Many things have changed in the yoga teacher industry.

But the time is NOW to gather together, give each other hugs and feel the special energetic connection that is only possible through an in-person gathering.

 

The Yoga Teacher Conf is here to help YOU.

Introducing the YOGA TEACHER CONF – ELEVATE

Affordable resources and a community just for Yoga Teachers!

Fill Your Yoga Classes

Want more students? Of course you do! Because the more students you have, the more lives you’re impacting!

Business for yoga teachers will help you create a sustainable yoga business so you can quit your job, take vacations or start your non-proifit (or whatever is in your heart!).

Teach Beyond Asana

Scared of teaching things “wrong” in your classes? Do you avoid teaching mudras or panayama or bandhas because you don’t feel confident?

Beyond Asana classes will teach you the skills you need to feel confident leading your students into the deeper levels of yoga.

Live Your Yoga with Integrity

Yoga is more than what you perform on the four corners of your mat.

Yoga is about right action. Do you know what your right action is? Are you scared of being “called out” for performing the wrong “right action?”

Learn how to live in integrity and take your yoga off your mat and into the world.

Create Fresh & Inspiring Yoga Classes

Are you tired of teaching the same old stuff? Does coming up with new, creative things to teach feel like a chore?

Yoga teacher burnout is a REAL thing. Learn new creative sequences and tools to help re-inspire your teaching.

Anatomy for Yoga Teachers

Are you scared of hurting your students?

Learn how to teach inclusive, safe and supportive classes for your students.

Engage in Critical Conversations

Teachers need a space to have tough conversations about accountability, ethics, diversity, sexual misconduct and a way to move forward.

The yoga teacher industry is at a crossroads. Join us as we engage in critical conversations that will help us all move forward on the right path.

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 Teacher Journey - YTC Elevate

Business for Yoga Teachers

Scattered to Clarity: Get Clear on Your Yoga Business Goals

Have lots of ideas for your yoga business but not sure where to start or how to make it all happen? This full-day workshop is designed for you to explore your big vision dreams but also to create a plan for action so the dreams become reality. Shannon Crow & Amanda McKinney have coached hundreds of yoga teachers through this process and they have come together to develop this full day workshop where you will walk away with clarity and confidence in your yoga business.

Skill in Action

Skill in Action

Skill in Action is a workshop designed to explore systems of power and oppression, the intersection of social justice and yoga, external and internalized patterns of oppression, power and privilege, and how we can respond to the current cultural and political challenges through practices of self-study, movement, pranayama, contemplation and collective action. Through these teachings you will learn more about both how to create more inclusive spaces for healing and teaching as well as how to infuse your teachings with content centered on social justice. Throughout our time together we will practice asana (postures), meditation, mindfulness, pranayama (breathing), holding space together and mantra work to sharpen our goals and visions for our work to change the world.

Astrology for Yoga Teachers

Astrology for Yoga Teachers

This workshop will teach theming to the Sun and zodiac signs including asana, pranayama, mudra, and mantra. We will go over the basics of chart reading and how the Sun effects our energies and archetypes within body, mind, and spirit. You will gain skills and insight for the practice of Svadhyaya and how to utilize these tools to develop optimal alignment with the cyclical nature of life. This workshop helps the yoga teacher align with a higher purpose of serving their students from a deeper level. Inspiration and motivation for classes! This workshop will include discussion, interaction, and skill development by teaching your own mini Astro-class at the end of the workshop.
