Let’s face it: being a movement teacher is hard.
There’s SO much pressure to be an expert, have an answer for every weird pain question your student comes to you with, and look the part. (As if you signed up to sell the fantasy of the uber flexible Lululemon clad Instagram model with the perfectly tousled ponytail. #hardpass)
Add to that the current pandemic, where suddenly not only do you have to be a movement expert, but a tech expert too.
Feeling a bit...overwhelmed? I gotchu.
Enter The Total Package Instructors Edition.
An all-in-one membership that gives you the tools to find your voice and expand your online marketing + body knowledge, so you can upgrade the hell out of your teaching – no tousled ponytails, impossible backbends, or matching crop top yoga pants sets required.
What's included when you join...
: A private FB group and office hours where you can ask me all your burning teaching and business questions + connect with a community of like-minded teachers.
The FB group acts as a mentorship, but casual. Pop into the group when you need a pep talk, want a quick answer troubleshooting a business or client issue, or want to share something you learned or celebrate a success.
There will also be two office hour calls a month, where you can submit questions beforehand or hop on the live call with me and I'll answer any questions you have - figuring out how to promote an offering, craft a newsletter, or getting ideas for working with a specific body issue that one of your students has come to you with. Office hours reply will be available.
Please note, while I can make tech recommendations, I am not a technology expert. You may need to hire someone to help you or purchase a course if you have extensive technology questions.
: Webinars with myself and other experts on the movement or the business of being a teacher.
You get a chance to have all your questions answered + learn new strategies that you would in a live workshop without paying thousands of dollars to travel the country to learn this stuff.
Can’t make the webinar? No worries. You’ll have a chance to ask your questions in advance and everything will be recorded and put on the site, so you can watch it later. Plus, if you have follow-up questions, you can ask them in the private FB group.

Lyssa Winograd, Yoga Teacher
I truly didn't know what to expect and the experience was amazingly positive. I appreciated that you took the time, listened, and were able to hone in on what I can do to move forward. Hearing myself talk it through afterwards with my husband I had an awareness of clarity, grit, and possibility. Thank you for helping me to pull out what has been building within.

Plus inspiration your personal movement practice and teaching...
: Exclusive access to online classes in multiple movement modalities. Classes featuring guest instructors and new workouts will added regularly, but currently you'll find bodyweight, Pilates, strength, and tabata workouts using kettlebells, resistance bands, small hand weights...and more!
Even better? No gym required. Every class on the site is designed to be done at home.
: Access to innovative Pilates apparatus workouts: Pilates teachers, this is for you. Most of the classes are 30 minutes. Long enough to get in a solid full body workout for yourself + get some new class ideas, but short enough to fit into your day.
: Fitness challenges that are more daring than 50 Shades of anything.
: A supportive community where you can dish about alllll your temptations & desires (or, like, just cheer that exercise sucks less)
