“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 is our signature course bridging the gap between yoga and other movement modalities like strength training and mobility work. This is a jam-packed learning opportunity which runs twice a year. Our next session begins in October 2019.

RESOURCES

Whether you’re a practitioner tired of feeling stagnated in your practice, someone who’s fresh out of teacher training or a seasoned instructor looking for new inspiration, these resources are the perfect way to start digging into the Detour. Everything here is downloadable and yours to keep and revisit anytime.

M3 MENTORSHIP

M3 – our Monthly Mentorship Membership – is open to those who have participated in Detour Method Online or in person trainings (200HR and Immersion). This is an on-going online course featuring a new instructor every month, sharing a speciality subject complementary to the Detour approach.

IN-PERSON TRAINING
IMMERSIONS

Each year we offer one 5-day immersion training for those looking to dive deeper into the Detour Method. These opportunities are designed for dedicated students and teachers, both new and experienced. In addition to focusing on the foundation of the Detour Method, more emphasis will be placed on sequencing and learning to integrate “non-yoga” movement into yoga classes without entirely abandoning the feeling of flow that we all know and love. The 2019 immersion is sold out. Details for 2020 will be announced soon.

INTENSIVES

Your opportunity to learn from members of the Detour team directly. Experience Cecily’s signature “Follow the Detour” mobility-based practice or her game-changing approach to backbends and inversions. Witness the incredible calibre of our expert faculty along with guest instructors, all of whom bring their best to ensure your learning experience is nothing less than exceptional.

RETREATS

Take advantage of the rare chance to take a true “Detour” away from everyday commitments and immerse yourself in movement intelligence. Connect with the global Detour community and experience the transformative power of interconnection in parts of the world known for their exceptional beauty, culture and off-the-grid appeal. Ready to learn more about our next adventure? Stay tuned for 2020 announcements, coming soon.

Together with Cecily, you’ll get the opportunity to unpack your approach to both practice and teaching to determine how best to inject a “Detour” into what you’re already doing.

ONLINE BUSINESS COACHING

Designed for yoga and movement instructors as well as studio owners looking to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Zero-in on what you want, explore how to make it happen & learn how to talk about it so others won’t want to miss out.

“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.
