When we empower ourselves in our practice and commit to a daily sadhana, we knowingly changing our lives and foster our connection with yoga. This allows us more resiliency to handle daily struggles, a more objective perspective on life, a healthier and more integrated body and mind, along with the ability to keep an open heart. In short, we become cool as a cucumber.

To help YOU stay cool, and master your own daily practice and connection with yoga, I have created this comprehensive online course that features:

  • Hours of rich video content guiding you through essential spiritual practices and lessons
  • Private Campus where we support and trade secrets on our daily rituals
  • Course workbook to share & take notes within the program
  • Bonus content to enrich your journey above and beyond the course material!

In this course, I leave nothing out. Like I said, this is the course I wish someone had done for me when I was first starting out. As a result, I’ve brought together all the most essential knowledge and tools to make it easy for you to thrive in your endeavor to connect to yourself and your #yogaeverydamnday.

This program counts as 45 hours of continuing education credits for The Kaivalya Yoga Method.

"Just wanted to let you know the online course with you is pretty amazing. Even though I’ve had a steady sadhana for a decade, to be reminded of the essence is essential. It is very helpful to have a deeper look at the nuances of the practice to better understand and implement it in our lives." — Emmamaria Vincentz

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you dripping content?
Indeed! I’m excited about this method of delivery because it allows us to go through the course together. Upon your registration, you get access to Module #1, and then each week thereafter, you receive the next modules. Once the next modules are unlocked, you have access to all the previous modules, too. No worries if you fall behind, or need to go at your own pace, this system allows you to do that, too.
How much time does it take?
It really is up to you! If you plan to keep up with the pace of the 6-week program, then it’s a good idea to commit 5 - 7 hours per week to the course. There is plenty of information in this course, so you are certainly able to spend more time with the material, and also gain support via the Campus. Remember, once you opt-in, you have access to the course materials forever. Don’t worry if you fall a little behind!

Alanna, what makes you qualified to lead this course?
My background in yoga spans nearly two decades, and I have been leading teacher trainings for 15 years. I have written three books on the field of yoga: Myths of the Asanas, Sacred Sound and Yoga Beyond the Mat. I also have a Ph.D. focused on this material and my expertise includes mythology, alchemy, depth psychology and yoga. I integrate all these into my understanding of yoga to develop a complete, integrative approach that brings the ancient practice into modern life. Really, though, the thing that qualifies me the most is the extensive amount of trial and error I have been through in my own personal practice over the years. I’d like to save you the time and effort and help you create immediate tools for lasting spiritual connection and transformation...right now.
How long do I have access to the materials?
Forever! That’s right, once you’re in, you’re in. You always have access to the materials, and can refer to them, or check back whenever you’d like. You also will be privy to any additions or enhancements to the course as I continue to build upon it in the future.
