ABOUT
GOING PRO YOGA

The first platform dedicated to supporting teachers in furthering their education and helping you transfer what you learn immediately to the ‘real world’ of yoga so that your confidence and your yoga classes continue to grow.

This online professional development platform was created to support yoga teachers in the next steps of their journey after their 200HR teacher training.

THE STORY BEHIND GOING PRO...

After leading dozens of teacher trainings together, Paul, Michael, and Byron began to realize that there was a serious problem with yoga teacher trainings in that there wasn’t much in the way of support for new teachers once they entered the real world of teaching yoga.

Here’s how it happened…

After each teacher training, they would receive emails from their students asking a variety of questions related to teaching yoga.

At first it was no big deal…

Whether the questions were related to cueing, alignment, or even creating a class, they would film videos for their students answering their questions, teaching simple cueing techniques and class sequences to help their students break down the teaching process.

But after leading dozens of trainings both in person and online, the number of students they had continued to grow and the number of questions they were responding to each week became overwhelming.

However…

What started as a simple video library for their students turned into a treasure trove of useful tools for new yoga teachers and they decided that it was too powerful to keep to themselves.

So they set out to create something that every new teacher could use…

…and what they have created is nothing short of amazing.

In fact, what they have created is something the world of Yoga has never seen before.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

This interactive platform was created by an inspiring group of yoga rebels who have decades of experience, tens of thousands of hours of teaching yoga classes and leading trainings in some of the most influential yoga studios in the world.

“I have met way too many yoga teachers who have their hearts in the right place but lack the tools to make a career out of it.  I love the learning process and I am most excited to help others evolve their skills.”

MICHAEL HENRI (RYT 300, MPty, BHK)

is a licensed Physiotherapist with over a decade of experience dealing with some of the most common and complex injuries. He has worked with companies in both Canada and Australia like, PT Health, Allied Connect, CBI Health Group, and TRAC Group Inc.

He originated the Going Pro Yoga idea with Paul after completing his 200HR YTT in 2020. Michael also noticed a trend of yoga teachers feeling shorted by their YTT and not feeling ready to teach.

“I was approached by several teachers highlighting the problem within the (yoga) industry. I spent months researching, finding out what these teachers were missing, and from that, this platform was built.”
