The Online Teacher Development Program
For more confident teachers.
The Online Teacher Development program is an interactive course for serious practitioners digging deeper into their yogic studies and yoga teachers seeking guidance in their profession.
Before I tell you all about this life-changing program, let’s talk about who it's really for…
- A serious student who wants to deepen their understanding of yoga?
- A new yoga teacher who wants to build their skills and confidence?
- An experienced yoga teacher looking for the mentorship and support to break through walls and approach teaching with a fresh perspective?
If any of those goals sound familiar to you, you're in the right place. I want to tell you exactly how the Teacher Development Program will give you the tools, the inspiration, and the unparalleled support that we all seek on the journey to deepen a yoga practice and becoming a better yoga teacher.
By the end of this program, you will have:
Know three pranayama sequences and understand how to use the breath to fuel your practice.
Tools to develop a seated meditation practice and incorporate it into everyday life.
Go-to chants, their meanings, and correct pronunciations to incorporate into your practice and teaching.
Ideas on building community, teaching virtually, differentiating yourself from other teachers, and advancing your practice.
Understanding asana patterns, modifying and extracting more from asanas, and seeing individual bodies.

Past Student Raves
Thanks for the excellent program! My students really appreciated the new adjustments, my practice has shifted in many ways, and I felt a good connection with everyone. I loved your sutra and chanting expertise too. Thank you! So grateful. Eager for more.
Jen helped me become more comfortable and learn how to fit the practice to my body rather than forcing my body to fit the practice.
This program provided practical advice and excellent tools for those of us looking to teach.
Jen was able to break down complex information into more simple terms that helped me feel more confident in my own practice and my own teaching abilities.
I absolutely loved the Teacher Development Program. I became a better teacher and fine tuned my skills. Even though I haven't met Jen in person, I felt very connected to her teaching.
What’s Inside the Teacher Development Program
This program is firmly grounded in the practice of yoga - because that’s where the information is. In order for you to feel confident as a teacher, you first have to experience yoga in your own body and mind.

You’re so freakin’ ready to “do the work”
By now, you fully understand that when it comes to teaching yoga, the barriers to entry are low but the barriers to success are high.
If you want to differentiate yourself from the crowd and stand out as an exceptional yoga teacher, this program is for you.
You want more than asana — you want a lifelong practice.
Asana comes and asana goes. If you want a better understanding of the deeper pieces of yoga, including the subtleties of asana, then I have you covered.
The day the quarantine started in California and much of the world, I felt a sense not only of dread, but also of relief.
Of course I was scared in the face of so much uncertainty. What would happen to yoga studios and other small businesses, let alone anyone who got COVID? But I also felt a sense of relief knowing that my students would be okay, because I had taught them how to practice for themselves.
As the weeks have turned into months, many of us are looking at home practice for the long haul. Online education is here to stay. So that begs the questions: how do you continue to move forward in your yoga practice without the regular help of a teacher? And how do you stand out in the crowd as a yoga teaching professional?
I’ve got news for you - the two aren’t that different.
Practicing yoga is a process. And doubts are going to come up. They should come up. Whatever you do, don’t doubt the process of asking questions.
If you are looking for some help along the way. If you want to expand your knowledge. If you want a personal relationship and connection to someone who has been there before. This program is for you.
I’ve been teaching for almost 20 years. I've helped hundreds of students transform through the power of yoga. I have seen students become work exchange yogis, then assistants, then subs, and finally become outstanding teachers. We all can only start at the start. I help teachers become better teachers.
I bring into this program all the experience of teaching thousands of students, running a Mysore program with up to 50 students a day, working at various studios, teaching online for four years, practicing and studying under the most senior teachers in the industry, and practicing Ashtanga daily Ashtanga for 20 years. That's a lot of experience.
No one wants to do this alone. It’s just too vast a topic — take it from someone who knows.
When you sign up for the Teacher Development Program, I'll be with you every step of the way. I'll be there to answer the questions that have you feeling stuck, to help you see a better version of yourself, and to help you use yoga and everything it encompasses to build personal strength.
See you on the inside,
