• OCT 2024 - MAY 2025 •

You’re here because in some way the yoga tradition has made a substantial impact on who you are today. 

Through yoga’s tools and teachings, you’ve probably felt held, supported, seen, understood, inspired or empowered, and as a result...

Your life has prospered. 

When something contributes to our growth and development like yoga has, we’re naturally drawn to learn more, study the subject matter, and steward the teachings forward. 

This is the natural evolution for many dedicated yoga students who’ve greatly benefited from a rich, holistic practice…they feel called to immerse themselves in study, become teachers, and potentially guide students on their own inward, spiritual journeys. 

This is the same call I heard over a decade ago, and I’m so thankful I had the courage to not only listen, but lean in and take imperfect action. 

Becoming a yoga teacher demands patience, humility, devotion, reverence and life-long studentship.

If you’re up for the challenge, myself, my team and our guest faculty are here to guide you through the very beginning stages of your yoga teacher journey. 

Join us for an intimate and authentic, 200-Hour Online Yoga Teacher Training.

Where holistic isn't just a buzzword.

It's the foundation for how we practice, teach and lead.

Allie and purposefully chosen faculty will guide you through sadhana, scripture studies, sequencing, anatomy, practice teaching, contemplation, foundational business concepts and more as you partake in this challenging, yet meaningful training.

Allie will be your lead trainer and mentor as you dive in and develop the skillsets to become a teacher. With more than 10 years of experience and a passion for yoga's holistic nature, she is the visionary behind this training, as well as the Body Mind Soul Studio where hundreds of students practice yoga daily.

What past graduates are saying...

Michelle, 2023 Graduate

I’ve been a yoga student for 30 years and always dreamed of becoming a teacher one day. I couldn’t find a training that felt holistic, authentic and professional until this one. I not only feel equipped to step out and teach from my mat, but my yoga has become this beautiful golden thread that weaves through everything I do. Allie provided an incredible experience for us all. I have life long friendships, mentors, a support network and also lifelong access to the incredible library of modules that covered SO much. I’m forever grateful to Allie and the team, and highly recommend the BMS YTT as a pathway of transformation and growth.

Sabrina, 2023 Graduate

I’ve wanted to be a yoga teacher for years. The program was beautifully designed and immensely rich with information. It has truly been a transformational experience. I notice myself looking at things from a totally new perspective. The peer groups just add to the whole experience. Getting to practice teaching others as you go through the course and having others to talk to really made me feel supported and ready to teach by the end of the program. I would highly recommend this YTT to anyone looking to deepen their studies of yoga. Whether you want to teach or not, what you will learn is truly transformational!

Jen, 2023 Graduate

I can't imagine a better, more comprehensive training! I was researching for YTT programs for a couple of years but nothing felt right until Allie. I spoke to several yoga teachers about the material I was learning, and most said their YTT didn't cover half of what we did. I came mostly to enrich my personal practice, I never imagined I'd actually feel ready to teach after this training - but now I know I'm absolutely ready when the opportunity arises. I fell even deeper in love with yoga and its rich traditions, and am inspired to to continue to learn and grow as a student. It challenged me, but in the end I've grown so much over the past seven months. I feel so lucky to have been in Allie's first YTT.

What is Holistic Yoga though?

Holistic yoga is the opposite of what's mainstream, popular, and widely available and offered.

When you practice and teach holistically, you don't reduce the yoga tradition down to a singular teaching (the poses), glorify the shapes a body can make, knowingly disrespect its origins, or equate yoga with physical fitness.

Instead, you embrace yoga as a living tradition that's filled with wisdom teachings to guide you and your students on an inward, spiritual journey.

Here's how we'll embrace this.

Becoming a skilled, successful and spiritually fulfilled yoga teacher rests on three key pillars - your sadhana (practice), your svādhyāya (studies), and your capacity to guide an impactful experience through skillful speaking and sequencing.

These will be our three key focuses throughout this training to support your becoming.

Sadhana (practice)

Sadhana, spiritual practice, is how you'll gain direct knowledge of the tools & teachings that you'll be transmitting. Without this, you'll experience confusion, resistance, insecurity, and emptiness (I've been here & I don't recommend it).

For this reason, you'll commit to and complete a reading sadhana & several self-led homework assignments throughout the training to deepen your personal practice.

Svādhyāya (studies)

If we only learn tools and not the teachings, then we'll never understand the why behind the how or the meaning behind the modality. It’s like owning a toolkit filled with life-changing items, but you don't know their true purpose. 

To combat this, you'll learn from myself & many wise teachers to immerse yourself in yoga studies spanning several subject matters.

Sequencing & Speaking

How you speak & sequence creates the container for students to receive the tools & teachings that you’ll be sharing. These two skills combined also result in transformational on-the-mat experiences that ripple off the mat and into your student's lives. Speaking & sequencing matter, and they both require intention, planning and effort. 

For this reason, you will be practicing both of these from the very beginning, live, on camera with myself and your peers!

What sets our training apart?

This isn't just a pre-recorded, go at your own pace training that lacks feedback, accountability or real-time connection with your teachers and community. Our training is well-rounded, just like the teacher you're wanting to be.

Learn more below about why our training is vastly different than what's widely available and offered (aka mainstream).

Self-Guided Learning

The bulk of the training will be pre-recorded teachings that you can watch on demand at a time that aligns with your schedule.

A new module will be released each month with guidelines on what to complete each week, so you can make continual progress towards graduation.

Bi-Monthly Group Meetings

We want you implementing what you're learning from the very beginning, which is why you'll meet twice per month to practice teaching.

You'll be paired with a group of peers, based on your chosen time preference, and attendance will be tracked and required. Allie or the BMS YTT team will be present at one meeting per month to provide mentorship.

Live, Immersive Learning

We'll gather for monthly for immersive training days to learn from guest faculty & Allie, and to continue practice teaching.

These trainings are mandatory unless time zones don't align or you have a valid reason for not attending, in which case watching the replay is required. You'll learn more about the live training days upon enrollment.

What past graduates are saying...

Olena, 2023 Graduate

The training has been a period of profound personal growth. I feel like I am approaching people and situations with a lot more compassion; like I’m seeing the Self inside everyone, as well as the “muck” covering up that Self. I feel less need to judge myself and everyone around me. Enrolling in this program has been one of best decisions of my life.

Dora, 2023 Graduate

This training provides a deeper understanding of body movements and an introduction to a different way of life. Through movement, breath, sound and stillness you can embrace a lifelong journey of self discovery, balance and growth. It isn’t just being able to teach, you become a lifelong student. I honestly can say that through this process I felt very supported and cared for by Allie and her amazing team. I feel like I paid for a cookie and I received a cake.

Karen, 2023 Graduate

I began my YTT desiring to create deeper, richer classes. I'm ending my YTT desiring to continue deeper studies into the rich heritage of yoga. This training was packed with information, challenge and teaching practice. This training was complete with quality guest teachers that took us deep into the yoga traditions and teachers that taught intelligent asana sequencing techniques. Seven months of study has given me the desire to be a lifetime yoga student. This holistic approach to yoga was the perfect fit for me.

This teacher training is designed for...

Sincere Yoga Students

You are a holistic practitioner who's not interested in practicing mainstream, watered down yoga (or teaching it). You're not afraid to learn, grow and go beyond the pose. You value yoga's rich and diverse teachings, and sincerely want to deepen your knowledge alongside trusted teachers and a supportive community. You may have the burning desire to teach, you may be wildly unsure, or you may not want to teach at all, either way this is a fertile place to learn.

Future Yoga Teachers

You consider yourself a sincere yoga student, and you know with your whole soul that you want to teach at the completion of this training. With our holistic approach that prioritizes sadhana, svahdyaya, sequencing and speaking from the very beginning, you will have the tools, teachings and experience to hold space, design a complete practice and feel calm (or mildly calm) while delivering it!

Certified Yoga Teachers

You've already completed your first YTT (or maybe 3!), but you value life-long learning and want to expand your studies. Your first training(s) may have been more mainstream, and now you're either ready to embrace a holistic approach OR wanting to revisit foundational teachings before advancing (this is what I did). Either way, taking a second 200HR YTT is incredibly common, and will only help to strengthen your knowledge, and further support your students.

Plus, Allie completed her 300-HR YTT, and courses with several of the teachers here through virtual trainings.

Will I have 1:1 access to Allie?

Allie or the BMS YTT Team will attend one of the bi-monthly group calls to provide feedback, support and mentorship. You'll also see her at the live training days, and the monthly Q+A's. In between calls, you'll be able to email the BMS Team with messages escalated to Allie on a requested basis.

What if I miss one of the bi-monthly group calls?

You are allowed to miss two peer group calls. If you miss more than two, a make-up session with Allie or the BMS Team is required at an additional cost of $100 USD. You may also be required to complete a make-up assignment.

Yes, that's the beauty of an online training! You'll need to dedicate approx 10 hours a week to your training, but we designed the majority of it to be flexible through pre-recorded, self-paced materials.

See graduation requirements below. More details are provided upon enrollment.

LIVE TRAININGS: Attend all live training days. Students are required to watch the replays for any live training content they miss.

We believe this deadline encourages student responsibility and dedication - traits we want in our yoga teachers too!

However, unforeseen changes in circumstances can slow down progress. If this happens, we'll need to be made aware and take each scenario on a case-by-case basis.

What technology is needed to participate?

You'll need access to a reliable computer or tablet, a solid internet connection and Zoom (where we hold our live trainings). We also highly suggest a webcam to elevate your teach backs.

Are there books included in the price?

Yes, we'll be mailing you the Yoga Toolbox by Joseph & Lillian Le Page. This is the same toolbox that Allie received at her first 200-HR YTT, and it's one that can grow with you as continue to evolve.

Are there books or other materials that aren’t included in the price?

Yes, not included in your tuition fees are: your anatomy textbook, books required for sadhana practice, computer or internet access, or any yoga props (such as a mat, blocks etc.) that you don't already own.

Information on all required reading and where to purchase those books is provided after enrollment.

Will you be offering this program again in the future?
