THANK YOU for considering my newest offering: the TIP - a hybrid program where we can all be TOGETHER IN PRACTICE.

This intensive was intentionally created to be delivered as a blended model of both on-demand + live virtual content to support students learning at their own pace while staying together on a dynamic 12-week track.

I am bubbling with excitement to impart 24 total classes of differing yoga styles. Participants can expect to dive deeper into physicality, breath, meditation, restoration, philosophy, history, artistry, and their own precious mind-body connection - all from the comfort of their own home. While students are poised to receive a TON of information, bear in mind it is simply the TIP of the yoga iceberg.

Registered yoga teachers can log 50 hours of continuing education upon successful completion of this program.

Not a yoga teacher, but an avid practitioner? Maybe you've considered embarking on a 200-hr program, but are not quite ready to take the leap. If you are looking for a way to expand your yoga practice in a meaningful environment, this offering may be just be what you're looking for!


Why I made this:

I recently fulfilled a long-time professional dream of mine: I joined my alma mater (Virginia Commonwealth University) as an adjunct professor in the renowned modern dance + choreography undergraduate program. Through the School of the Arts, I designed a dynamic curriculum and led yoga as an elective course. My overarching goal was to throw all the proverbial spaghetti on the wall (as many yoga styles as I felt competent and qualified to lead) and see what stuck.

The support from my peers and fellow practitioners was overwhelming. Dozens of folks musing: "I wish I could take that class!" Which got me thinking...

...Seed planted and watered by my love for content creation, continuing education, and program-building - voila! The TIP emerged. Now, you too can take this course... embark with me on an epic journey where you can sample a smattering of yoga styles, connect to your practice in both a personal and academic fashion, and be supported by a virtual group of peers all working the same program beside you.

I hope to see you at the TIP - where we can all be
