Delivering a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training can easily become very time-consuming. Some people do it in as little as three to four weeks, yet in the past, I’ve let the course take as long as a year. Either way, the key to fitting this many hours of training into your existing schedule is to be […]
Yogic Myths You Can Share With Your Students
School starts in September up here in Canada and last week while I was registering my oldest child for high school, I had an awkward experience that you may be able to relate to. Due to a variety of circumstances, my child is attending a new high school with none of their friends, so we […]
Learn how Mandy makes the Ambassador Curriculum Her Own – Yoga Teacher Training
Lately, we’ve been sharing lots of details about how easily you can host your own Yoga Teacher Training and thought it might be time you hear more about the experience directly from a lead trainer.

What happens on a Discovery Call?
Have you ever heard the phrase ‘Be the Forklift’? It means that part of our work as yoga teachers is to meet people where they are and help them rise. In the video below, Aruna and I talk about how that philosophy fuels our work at the Yoga Trainer Fast Track as we meet regularly […]
Hacks to Get Your Newsletter Done Fast!
Talking out our emails is my favourite hack.

Yoga Teacher Training Manual Standards, What’s Changed?
When I registered for Yoga Teacher Training in 2006, the manual I received was a combination of blurry photocopies from other textbooks. The pages were often cut off and there was no consistent theme. You may be able to relate because this was typical back then. Aruna said the manual she got from her yoga […]
4 Scheduling Considerations for your Yoga Teacher Training
I used to think that being a Yogi meant that my restless spirit got to live a carefree life. Of course, Yoga philosophy has taught me, and others to see obstacles as lessons and to trust the universe. However, one thing I didn’t consider when I opened my studio was the importance of scheduling. At […]
Successful Delivery Formats for Your Training
While growing up, my dad had a friend that owned a patio pub in a small northern tourist town. The pub was popular all summer long as annual cottagers and tourists returned to the area, but like most businesses, he had a slow time of year and in this case, it was all winter long. […]

The Big Mistake we Almost Made
We’re fans of The Yoga Teacher Resource podcast, so Aruna and I signed up for a goal-setting workshop with Mado last week. Although we’ve led these types of workshops ourselves, we wanted a new perspective and we knew if we paid, we would get our yearly review done. The highlight of the workshop was the reflection on the true meaning of success and how success showed up last year. I was taken aback to see that it was teaching that brought me the most joy last year but planning for 2022, I was considering teaching less! Aruna and […]
Why we Changed Our Mind about Online Training
We have never thought of conducting online yoga teacher training before the pandemic arrived. There was no need for us to dive into it, setting up teaching portals and conducting zoom classes. For us, that was unnecessary. The 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training has a lot of interactive activities, making online classes for us unimaginable. […]
