TEACHING YOGA ISN'T JUST A 'JOB' FOR YOU. IT'S HOW YOU SERVE THE WORLD.

CURVY YOGA CERTIFICATION

It's your calling. Your highest work. A total joyfest. And every day you're called to share the gift of yoga with as many people as possible. It’s a powerful mission. But without the right training & preparation, some of your curvier students might feel left out of the party. And that’s the last thing you want.

ADD TO YOUR TOOLBOX

Curvy Yoga CERTIFICATION is a fabulous option for certified yoga teachers (or those currently in process on their 200hr training) who want to add an additional credential to their toolbox — while learning how to create yoga experiences that are inclusive, accessible & enriching for students of every shape & size.

SPIRIT OF CURIOSITY

Curvy Yoga CERTIFICATION is about bringing a spirit of curiosity, permission & celebration to your classes, while earning an official ‘seal of approval’ — & getting serious business and marketing support. You will learn both how to make yoga poses work for curvy students as well as how to help all students find more body acceptance both on and off the yoga mat.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Curvy Yoga CERTIFICATION is continuing education for your yoga teaching practice (hello, tax deduction!) – with a business-building booster shot.

ONLINE-ONLY

Curvy Yoga CERTIFICATION is a live, online program that allows you to learn from the comfort of your own home (because we know travel can get tricky & expensive!) while still getting to interact with me and your classmates in real time.

HOW TO OFFER CURVY-SPECIFIC POSE OPTIONS


You’ll learn how to welcome curvy students into your class (and keep them) — and master the how-tos of Curvy Yoga pose modifications, with teacher-specific written & video pose instructions for 60+ poses. You’ll learn principles you can apply to any pose, too.

You’ll also learn the philosophy behind Curvy Yoga and how it is informed by Health at Every Size®, an individualized approach to health that doesn’t focus on weight but on what works for each person’s health.

HOW TO CREATE BODY AFFIRMING CLASSES THAT PEOPLE ADORE


You’ll explore the relationship between yoga and body acceptance and discover how to make your classes body affirming — without having to feel like a cheerleader yelling out “Love Your Body!” every five seconds (especially if you’re not even sure you love your own body every second of every day).

In addition, you’ll learn the nitty gritty of how to create a classroom environment that invites people to show up fully as themselves, and you’ll also get support & feedback directly from me on writing a marketing description that gets folks in the door in the first place.

HOW TO UNPACK YOUR OWN BAGGAGE SO YOU CAN TRULY SHOW UP


You’ll be challenged to unpack some of your own hardwired ‘body baggage’ — and clear out the emotional gunk, so you can really show up for your students, no matter your own shape or size. You will be encouraged to apply the Curvy Yoga Practice (the how behind the intersection of yoga and body acceptance) in your own life, both on and off the yoga mat, to deepen your understanding of how to share it with students.

You’ll also be invited to reflect on your teaching language and philosophy and continue to fine tune both as you make your classes inviting for even more people.

HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR OWN UNIQUE CLASSES + EXPAND YOUR VOCABULARY


You’ll develop your own curvy friendly sequences and learn from your classmates’ sequences, too (more go-to sequences you can use when crunched for time or inspiration? Yes, please!).

You’ll also expand your teaching vocabulary, allowing you to explain pose modifications with grace by using inclusive language that helps everyone find the version of the pose that works best for them — whether you have 1 curvy person in the room or 100.
