  • Are you a yoga teacher ready to take your practice and teaching to a deeper level of skill and understanding? 
  • Do you want to refine your teaching skills and advance your practice without committing to a costly and time-consuming training program?
  • Are you a recent graduate of a 200-hour training program with questions based on your real-life teaching experience?

What is The Skillful Yogi and what will I get out of it?

The Skillful Yogi is a unique, 6-month professional development program for yoga teachers to engage with your personal practice, explore the teachings of yoga and refine your teaching skills by working closely with seasoned teachers and being part of stimulating and supportive learning community.  

The Skillful Yogi is NOT an advanced teacher training, yet you will grow and improve in your teaching in ways you would not have expected. It is a dynamic continuing education program designed to support new teachers in all aspects of becoming an inspiring, effective teacher and integrating the wealth of knowledge and skills you received in your training.

Our online format is accessible and convenient. You can work with the materials provided at your own pace and when it works for you. The program content is engaging and rich, providing a powerful opportunity for your advancement as a yoga teacher, with personal one-on-one feedback in all areas of your yoga practice and teaching. Read more about why I created this program here.
