Yoga teacher’s gathering in Chicago!

EMPOWER Your Yoga Teaching and Life

Sept 23 – 25, 2022  |  Chicago, IL

Introducing the YOGA TEACHER CONF – EMPOWER

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!).

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.

Self-Care & Personal Practice

Join our brave space of fellow yoga teachers and connect deeply with your personal practice and feel accepted just as you are. 

Exist in a community of others just like you where authenticity is encouraged, knowledge is gained and ideas are shared and explored.

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!
