THINK YOU DON’T FIT THE MOLD OF A YOGA TEACHER?

I transform regular women, just like you, into remarkable teachers.

Yoga needs real. Not skinny, trendy + overly bendy

The stereotypical yoga teacher seems to be a size 2, modern-day contortionist who belongs on a glossy magazine cover. Her classes are hot and haute, and she shows off poses that intimidate the s**t of you. And everybody in class looks just like her.

Now imagine the yoga teacher who cares more about making a difference in the lives of others and embraces the spiritual side of yoga. She guides you to connect with your body and be grateful for what it can do, and doesn’t care about your body shape or hers.

Purple Lotus Yoga teacher training caters to second kind–a real, regular teacher, if you will.

And if that sounds like you, grab an iced tea and stick around.

Now in its 17th year. The training that’s changed thousands of lives.

When you’ve caught the bug and never want the learning to stop.

Learn with me. Practice yoga classes or take workshops with me.

The real + regular revolution started here

If you’ve taken yoga in any north Texas yoga studio, chances are good you’ve taken from a Purple Lotus trained teacher. I have the oldest Yoga Alliance approved program in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex.

I have more than 10,000 hours of teaching yoga, and for 16 years, I’ve been mentoring and certifying teachers, many of whom have gone on to start their own studios, teacher training programs, and other yoga related businesses.

You can be a remarkable teacher too

While knowledge of the postures is the first step in becoming a skilled instructor, it’s not the only one. (And just because someone else CAN do all the cirque-like poses doesn’t mean they’d be a good teacher.)

It’s not about the yoga voice, Sanskrit-fluency or even wearing size 2 fancy pants….It’s about how the participants feel during and after class. With my Texas accent, butchered Sanskrit, and size 8-10 off-brand yoga pants, I teach one hell of a class.
