YOGA IS TRANSFORMATIONAL AND SO IS YOUR WORK

As a former high school educator, growing as a yoga teacher and building a healthy business has been a challenging, yet rewarding journey.

There are questions that can’t be covered in the context of a yoga teacher training, but that will come up once you start teaching. If you are looking for answers to those questions and desire personal support, then I’d like to invite you to my one-on-one mentorship program.

 

The Progression Sessions

The curriculum we’ll work with is a personalised version of The Professional Yogis masterclasses which I developed and presented in the past.

 

For Yoga Teachers

The mentorship program is for yoga teachers who want to tune into their own voice and develop fundamental teaching and business skills.

 

Over the years, I’ve had the chance to: 

• create classes, workshops and retreats that filled up with students who said ‘yes’ to my yoga and continued to return.

• teach at various international yoga festivals and conferences.

• travel overseas to Europe to present workshops at yoga schools and conferences.

• collaborate with amazing teachers nationally and internationally.

• be featured on blogs, in books, interviews and online programs.

• write The Clean Yogi.

• speak on stage with Chef Pete Evans and Joshua Rosenthal (Founder of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition).

• create and facilitate classes, workshops and retreats all over the world.

• work in education, being actively involved in curriculum design and evaluation.

• mentor yoga teachers one-on-one.

• leave my corporate career in the education sector behind.

 

You don’t have to want to do all this. Yet…

 

If you

~ are getting excited thinking about your work as a yoga teacher

~ can’t wait to share this ancient tradition in the most authentic, professional, heartfelt way

 

 

But you still have questions like

 

I did a yoga teacher training, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to teach?

How do I set up my first classes? How do I organise and promote a retreat?

How do I find my own voice (and what does ‘finding your voice’ actually really mean)?

I lack of creativity? How can I design classes that are inspiring and my students never get bored of?

There are so many other yoga teachers out there, how can I find students?

How can I create, organise and promote my classes, workshops, courses and retreats?

Do I need a fancy website?

Facebook, Twitter or Instagram? Do I have to use social media at all?

Is it yogic to promote myself? 

I don’t like marketing myself  — what can I do about it?

What is a yoga teacher marketing plan and why do I need it?

How can I come across as authentic and not as sales-y when promoting my services?

How can I effectively and efficiently prepare and plan my classes?

How to film my yoga classes without having experience in filming / editing / spending a fortune on equipment?

 

Then this may be something for you.

“Alexa, thank you again for all your wisdom, insight, belief and never holding back from saying what’s true during out sessions together. You’re a great coach, a fantastic yoga teacher and invaluable mentor.You showed me that I don’t have to be held captive by my fears. This was the biggest breakthrough for me.

You created a space for me to find my feet, hear my inner voice and feel confident with where i’m at on my teaching journey and to have fun with it.

If I didn’t find your mentor program one week before I completed teacher training I know I would have reverted to old behaviors and told myself I am not ready to start teaching and waited for the next course to feel “ready”. This was the most important decision I’ve made to date other than the initial training itself.
Having someone so established in the yoga community to ask questions, bounce ideas off and to be a cheerleader for me was absolutely priceless.
Thank you so much for what you’ve done for me as I am now teaching regular classes, living my dream waking up every day so grateful to be here.

From my heart, the biggest thank you.”  – Kristy Da Silva, www.kristydasilva.com

 

 

“A Catalyst for Change. Alexa has put together a much-needed program with the Professional Yogis. I found the training to be completely engaging and inspiring…It was a total immersion into developing a “heart-centred” business as a yoga teacher, and how to go beyond that role to diversify your yoga further.

For me, it was the opportunity to interact with like-minded souls, to bounce ideas off one another and be supported throughout the business discovery sessions which were the most valuable for me.
Now, I feel empowered and equipped to use my teacher training as a springboard to a broader career as a Professional Yogi! Another workshop attendee and myself were so motivated from the event that we are create and developing a workshop and retreat series as we speak”! – Cindra Banks, Yoga Teacher, HolisticHealthHoney.com

 

 

“For me the professional yogis course has been so deeply beneficial.
Alexa is so good at asking questions and generating discussion in a way that really draws out what your own truth is. I found it so valuable to spend extended time really looking at WHY it is I love yoga and want to share it with people- the absolute profound simplicity of this has given me so much confidence and direction. For me the workshop was about distilling clarity and creating some really workable structure and support too. It has made a huge impact on me and how I feel about growing my business with love, authenticity and a desire to truly stand out and make a difference.” – Kristin Nelson, www.fleurieuyoga.com

 

 

“Alexa’s training was a refreshing journey into remembering why
I love yoga, why I teach yoga and honouring what is inspirational and meaningful
to me – a natural and joyful place from which to promote myself.
We received a well researched and beautifully presented workshop with plenty of self-enquiry
and practical tools/steps/notes to take home – now, my journey continues. Thanks
Alexa, you are your message!” – Jen Jacobs, YogaCalm.com.au

 

 

“The Professional Yogis event put together by Alexa served to not only inspire my soul, but to give me the tools to start putting my ideas and plans into action. As a soon-to-be yoga teacher, I found this program so helpful to cut through to the core of where I want to be, why I want to be there and how to begin that journey. In this supportive environment, I found I was accepted and challenged in a way that was positive and uplifting. The tools that I have been armed with will be useful in any type of brand building, not just yoga teaching. In fact, I’ve already started using them within my t-shirt business! I have no hesitation in recommending Alexa’s Professional Yogis program to anyone who comes my way and I know that everyone will get something out of it.” – Cat Mead – Yoga Teacher, www.twofeetyoga.com.au
