The elusive goal of having a thriving yoga career is closer than you think. It’s long past time for you to be able to use your spiritual gifts to have a greater positive impact on the world and authentically increase your earning potential. Employing the right strategies is the first step to your inevitable success.

In this webinar, you’ll learn more about me, my methods, my commitment to you and why embracing the path to spiritual leadership will change your life.
Hi, I’m Alanna.
With more than two decades and over 10,000 hours of teaching, doctoral studies, continuous learning and personal experience, I have gathered the practices, techniques, and know-how to create the highest level training programs available. I’ve written books, started the first-ever yoga podcast, and developed #alltheonlinecourses at AlannaK.com. What you find here is my life’s work—the resources I wished were available to me when I first began my spiritual journey.
I’m often called The Yoga Doctor because I help yoga teachers embody their knowledge, up-level their skills and create more positive impact in the world. I know how difficult it is to set yourself apart and thrive as a yoga teacher (been there!), so I want to teach you to be more than that. I want you to be a spiritual leader, healer, advisor and a whole lot more.
