Since 2003, I’ve trained and mentored non-traditional yoga teachers & yoga biz babes.

Purple Lotus Yoga Yoga Teacher Training

Think you don’t fit the mold of a yoga teacher?

The stereotype seems to be a yoga teacher who is size 2-4, modern-day contortionist who belongs on a glossy magazine cover. Her classes tend to be sweat-fests, 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 of teacher, a non-traditional yoga teacher, if you will.

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

The perfect taste of what yoga teacher training is like.

The non-traditional 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 non-traditional 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.

The Most Important Yoga Pose

By far my favorite topic to teach during yoga teacher training is Philosophy. When I first started practicing asana, I wanted nothing to do with it, but now I'm enthralled with the Eight Limbs, the yamas and niyamas, the kleshas and Kriya Yoga. Plus I usually end up...
