Modeled after the live SPL teacher training, this online program takes the content from the original training and delivers it in an online format over the course of 12 weeks.
I am a full-time yoga teacher and yoga teacher's mentor. I started FCYW because yoga (without a doubt) saved my life and I want to pay it forward. I'm goal-oriented and driven by nature and left unchecked, those potentially positive traits were highly problematic. At 22 — after more than a decade of disordered eating and serious injuries resulting in multiple hip surgeries — I was going crazy trying to live up to my own unrealistic expectations. My yoga practice radically changed the way I understood and related to myself. It taught me that true power, strength, and success comes only as a result of a life lived in balance. I believe that introducing more people to the deeply healing benefits of yoga has the power to completely transform our world. I believe the best way to get more people practicing (mindful, therapeutic) yoga is to raise the bar of professionalism for yoga teachers.
I have been teaching a full schedule of private clients (25 a week!) in New York City and Washington DC since 2005. I have been working with the same clients for many years, and have waiting lists three people deep for many time slots. I work with truly incredible students that I love to see, even at 6am! I often have other teachers (my teachers! much more experienced teachers!) ask me how I have so many private clients.
