Move with Purpose. Teach with Passion.

Ready to detour from conventional movement education?

Yoga Detour: Bridging the gap between the practice you love and the teacher you aspire to be.

If you’ve ever felt like you didn’t quite belong in a conventional yoga class...

—maybe it moved a little too quickly, or included a few too many postures that didn’t work for your body—you’ll be at home here.

If you’ve ever wondered if there’s a way to share yoga asana that reflects your interest in other elements of movement—like strength work, mobility and exploration—you’ll be inspired here.

If you’re looking for a way to make your teaching more sustainable, unique AND profitable, the tools you need can be found right here on this unconventional yet exciting path toward your most audacious goals.

I’m so glad you trusted your gut, followed the detour and landed here. You’re in the right place.
