“Cecily’s coaching style is  perfect for how my brain works. Not only did I feel seen and heard, but also that my creativity was supported and enhanced in each session. If you are considering working with Cecily I cannot recommend her enough! Not only does she understand pedagogy, but she also knows how to create a safe space for you to be vulnerable and grow as a yoga teacher and movement educator. Thank you Cecily for your support and wisdom.”

ONLINE LEARNING
COURSES

Detour Method Online training is a 4-module course that reflects the core pillars of what we use as the foundation for a solid physical practice. This is a jam-packed learning opportunity which runs LIVE, with the first session beginning November 5. Join us and experience what it’s like to bridge the gap between the yoga you know and everything else you’re increasingly curious about in the movement realm.

DOWNLOADABLE RESOURCES

These digital guides are yours to leverage for your personal practice and class planning. Enjoy one of our in-depth renowned resources (Top 8 for 2018, Spring Six) or choose from a-la-carte PDF guides organized by body part: spine, core, hips, shoulders, wrists, and feet/ankles (coming in 2019). These make sequencing a breeze and are updated regularly to ensure you’re consistently challenged and inspired.

IN-PERSON TRAINING

“Sometimes I feel so alone in the way I feel about Yoga, I often find myself feeling lost and doubting what I do and wondering if I should change careers completely. And then I see your posts and read your emails and feel comforted. I feel inspired again to keep learning, questioning and challenging the norm, knowing I’m not alone. To keep doing what I’m doing despite the few people who might resist. I feel grateful to have eyes that see outside the box and to have found your work. Thanks for giving me hope and inspiration.”

OUR FOUNDER

Hey there. I’m Cecily. Yoga Detour represents everything I wish I once had access to as a teacher and a business owner. I create resources and experiences that change the way people understand movement and the body. I support others in their desire to be the best at what they do. I welcome the yoga misfits. The inquiring minds. The bullshit detectors. The teachers who are ready to be agents of change.

I did Ashtanga yoga exclusively for 10 years. Despite the gifts this practice gave to me, my body was broken and my brain atrophied. I sought answers from the best I could find: Ido Portal, Christopher Sommer, Dr. Andreo Spina (FRC/FRA), Guy Voyer D.O. (Somatraining, ELDOA) and the countless others I’m now fortunate to call my friends – people like Lovedeep Dhunna, Trina Altman, Hunter Cook, Jenni Rawlings and Kathryn Bruni-Young.

I love what I do and I want the same for you. Reach out anytime or connect with me online via @yogadetour. I look forward to the moment our worlds collide.
