I'm a dog loving, menstrual cycle charting, chakra balancing yoga teacher and reproductive health educator.
I teach busy women how to practice and teach cycle-conscious yoga and meditation to support healthy hormonal and menstrual cycle function AND improve their mental, emotional and physical well-being so that they can better support their womb-carrying yoga students throughout their reproductive years.

Did you know there are research studies that show certain types of yoga can balance hormone function and support hormonal homeostasis?
Most yoga classes and teacher trainings ignore your cyclical nature, your hormonal fluctuations & your menstrual cycle.
Are ready to commit to a 6-month intensive training in yoga, meditation and holistic reproductive health
Wish to support other women in balancing their hormones, empowering their menstrual cycle and reclaiming their well-being
Want to teach yoga beyond asana, focusing on healing practices that support women throughout their reproductive years
Well-woman yoga is a practice dedicated to honoring the whole woman. The practice utilizes yoga, meditation, yoga nidra, the chakra system and body literacy as instruments for self-healing, empowerment, manifestation and liberation. Well-woman yoga allows for modification and the ability to adapt to your natural
rhythms and cycles. We talk about the things that most yoga classes and trainings don’t talk about and we put an emphasis on the female reproductive, hormonal and menstrual cycle health. This particular training is unique in that you will learn how to chart your own menstrual cycle, track your hormonal health, basal body
temperature, cervical mucous, cervical position and how it relates to your yoga and meditation practice.
Yes! I created this sacred yoga teacher training for women as they journey through the many stages of their menstrual cycles, from menarche to menopause. This training is created with varying wombs in mind, so there is something for every womb, no matter where you or your future students are in this life's journey. The training is open to all womb-carriers, whether you're currently menstruating or not, no matter where you are in your reproductive life cycle.
That’s awesome! You will have a bit of a head start when you begin this training. Some people have asked if they can skip certain sections if they already have a 200-hour certification and just take the well-woman yoga portion. The answer is no, because in your 200-hour training you were not looking at the whole woman, her menstrual cycle, her pelvis, her pelvic floor and her hormonal fluctuations. There are also many gaps in most 200-hour teacher trainings, and the aim of this training is to fill in those gaps so that you can fully support women and girls with confidence. Yoga asana and yogic practices look completely different once you have a solid understanding of the female reproductive and hormonal system and
the menstrual cycle. In this training you are looking at yoga through a completely different lens.
Although every woman can benefit from taking this training, as it offers in-depth knowledge of the menstrual and hormonal cycle, menstrual cycle charting instruction and yoga practices to support healthy menstruation and a balanced hormonal system, this training is meant for those who wish to teach well-woman yoga and support other women in transforming their lives, empowering their menstrual cycles and balancing their hormones. If you are not interested in becoming a yoga teacher, you can still take the training to deepen your practice and awareness BUT there are much more cost effective ways of doing this, like a workshop, intensive or retreat.
Absolutely yes! The reason this course is online and live is so that you can study and certify at a pace that suits your schedule. The online portion of the training gives you lifetime access to all training materials, including any and all new additions that are added in future trainings. The live portion of the training spans 6 months with weekly calls to solidify the material you learn through the online videos, audios, PDFs and the training manual. You will also experience live lectures and Q&As with experts in the fields of yoga, meditation, yoga nidra, tantra, chakras, sexual & reproductive health, fertility charting and more.
Yes! You will be certified as a Cycle Awareness Yoga®: Well-Woman Yoga Teacher and 200-Hour Yoga Teacher. Throughout this training you will learn to teach hatha, vinyasa, well-woman, womb yoga and restorative yoga for a diverse range of teaching skills. Once you have completed all of the certification requirements you will receive your certificate of completion. Certification is not guaranteed, you will
have to take the personal responsibility to complete the assignments, homework, quizzes and the final exam.
Certification means that you have satisfactorily completed all of the requirements of this training. It means that you have demonstrated the ability to safely guide women and girls through cycle-conscious yoga and meditation practices that support hormonal balance and a healthy menstrual cycle. It also means that you have gained an understanding of your own body, fluctuating hormones and
menstrual cycle. It means that you have knowledge of the yoga sutras, yoga history and philosophy, anatomy & physiology, individual alignment, cueing and how to guide a yoga class that supports and meets women where they are.
This is completely dependent upon you and your schedule. The ideal time is 6 months with the online and live portions of the training being completed. If, however, you need more time to complete the online portion after the live calls end, you are more than welcome to take all the time that you need. Life happens, so you’re encouraged to work at your own pace but keep consistent each week with the work and schedule. The lead trainers are here to support and encourage you throughout your journey, you are responsible for the work but you will receive a schedule with guidance to help you along the way.
You must complete all of the following in order to receive certification:
Complete all assignments, homework ,quizzes, written and practical exam
Practical exam: submit a 30 - 60 minute video of you teaching well-woman yoga (via unlisted or private YouTube)
Complete 5-6 cycles of menstrual cycle charts
40-day yoga practice journal
Teach 6 paid well-woman yoga classes (3 group, 3 private)
Create a website with email-opt in
All live training calls are 90 minutes in length to give you the most bang for your buck during the training, while also not taking up too much of your personal time. The weekly live training calls are for you to clarify and deepen your knowledge of the online material, received feedback from teachers and peers, as well as learn from guest teachers and lectures.
Please refer back in this prospectus to learn more about the live training call sessions, days and times. Please commit to attending at least 1 live lesson per week for the duration of the 6 month training. These live calls are available to you so that you can ask questions, gain clarity on the material, learn more about your menstrual cycle and hear from guest teachers and speakers.
Yaaaaaassss! There are scholarships available for those who come from underserved communities or are working primarily with women in underserved communities. You can apply for a scholarship here!
Hell yes there is! You save $200 when you pay in full in the amount of $2800 versus the payment plans that total $3000.
Yes!!! The entire well-woman yoga teacher training is available to you all online! Women are busy, you have jobs, families, responsibilities and yet you wish to learn more about your body, your menstrual cycle and deepen your yoga and meditation practice. It’s tough to get away from home for such a long period of time. Instead of shortening the training and trying to squeeze it into a 30 day
training, it is more feasible to create the training online and put the time, work and effort in to create a high quality training that you can complete from the comfort of your own home, in your own sacred time frame.
The short answer is no and here is the reason why. This training was originally approved by Yoga Alliance, as well as Yoga Alliance Professionals, and it contains the same base content as the previously approved 200hr Yoga Teacher Training plus much more. Both Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Professionals are private,
non-profit organizations that over the years, have not proven to be beneficial for yoga teachers nor yoga teacher training programs. They are simply a registry list of studios, teachers and yoga teacher trainings. They are not certifying bodies and they do not certify yoga teachers nor yoga teacher trainings. Yoga Alliance charges a yearly nominal fee to list your name, studio and training on their website, that’s it. The registration and teacher training program approval process is far from optimal and the guidelines set forth by both organizations limit the capacity for trainers to offer exceptional quality trainings in the time frames set forth. Just because a ttraining program is Yoga Alliance approved does not mean that it is quality. Yoga and teaching yoga is a journey that is far beyond what a 200 or 300 hour training can offer you, the daily svadyaya and awareness practice never ends! My aim has always been to stick to yoga's origins and roots, teaching yoga in my own authentic way and moving away from the mass commercialization of yoga. Instead of paying yoga registry fees, I've chosen to invest in technology that supports trainees and pay a living wage to the guest yoga teachers who support this training and it's trainees.
You will not be able to register through Yoga Alliance but you will be able to register through Yoga Alliance Professionals UK until April 2021. This program will no longer be registered via any of these organizations as they have not proven to be beneficial to trainees nor yoga teachers in the long run. Registering as a yoga teacher through these private, non-profit organizations is completely optional and
registering does not guarantee that you will be hired by a studio, nor does it guarantee you success as a yoga teacher. If registering with Yoga Alliance or Yoga Alliance Professionals is important to you, then this is not the right training for you.
Yes, you will be a certified 200-hour yoga teacher as is defined by industry standards. Please know that this training offers far more than a typical 200-hour yoga teacher program can offer. You will have niche skills that move beyond teaching yoga asana. The lead teachers and trainers have a proven track record of excellence and at some point were aligned with Yoga Alliance until they chose a
different path for themselves. These teachers have taught at yoga studios, festivals and built their own businesses and yoga brands across the globe.
Again, you decide how much time you can dedicate to the training. You can work at your own pace through the online material and attend the weekly live calls. If you plan to complete the training within 6 months, the weekly commitment may look something like this:
60 - 70 minutes of cycle charting and journaling
60 – 90 minutes of homework or assignments
90 minute live call
4 – 6 hours watching pre-recorded training videos
5 - 7 hours of yoga and meditation practice
That's cool, shoot an email to email@example.com to get your questions answered. Please allow up to 72 hours for a response due to the time zones, weekend differences, holidays and daily life!
