A Membership Created By Yoga Teachers For Yoga Teachers

Led by Alanna Kaivalya, Ph.D. (also known as The Yoga Doctor), HEY connects you with the teacher’s teacher, someone who created teacher training programs for the top studios in the US, wrote three popular books on yoga, earned recognition as the top 20 teacher under 40 by Yoga Journal, and challenged and changed the yoga industry for almost two decades.

The HEY membership is designed for yogis ready to take their practice or careers to the next level…without the commitment of lengthy (expensive) trainings. We are committed to making higher education for yoga accessible, practical, and impactful.

Come see why thousands of yogis have sought out her knowledge and wisdom for training and higher education in the field of yoga.

The 6 Pillars of Passion & Practice

Every month, you receive new lectures, recordings, and content within each pillar.

teacher’s tune-up

Every month, you receive new lectures, recordings, and content within each pillar.

beyond the mat

You know yoga is bigger than asana. While there are more than enough resources out there on how to do triangle pose, we focus on the alignment of the spirit and soul.

mantras & meditation

This pillar brings you different methods of meditation that work for the modern day practitioner, and mantras that provide relevance and power for spiritual transformation.

spiritual leadership

This pillar brings your higher education on the essential role of a spiritual leader, and elevates the yoga teacher to this post with necessary training and support.

modern mystic musings

This pillar brings you higher education on modern mysticism so you complete the puzzle of transformations with a variety of tools and skills that unlock your greatest potential.


As teachers, myth is a tool to teach students how to look past their belief systems and realize wholeness. This pillar brings you higher education on the mythology of yoga, and each month you receive a new myth to live by.

Higher Education in Yoga:
The HEY Benefits

fresh content

With access to new curriculum every month, you’ll differentiate yourself from the average yoga teacher who “teaches people how to stretch.” Get career-building advice. Collect expertly curated mantras, mythological frameworks, and meditations. Wow your students and help them experience a deeper peace than a sun salutation will ever give them.


This membership isn’t just some loosely “organized” social media group. In HEY you get access to real mentorship from Alanna Kaivalya and her team of bona fide yoga teacher mentors. Ask your questions, share your stories, and get the advice you need to excel.


Sorry to say, but most yoga teachers find little to no support from fellow teachers working in the same studio, sometimes competing for more class slots. The inclusive, supportive HEY community exists to fill that gap, to help every yogi elevate their careers.

live curriculum

20+ hours of live classes per month. Alanna and the mentors will be teaching live via Zoom weekly classes which will count towards your Yoga Alliance registration for Teacher Training Certification as well as Continuing Education Credits. We will also be putting on monthly live workshops which are included in your membership.

bonuses, discounts & gifts

Our customers know we go above and beyond to raise the bar for yoga education, and our new HEY Membership will be no different. Enjoy exclusive members-only discounts on courses, VIP promotions, and complimentary bonus materials.

Absolutely! In fact, we know how difficult it is to attain more education about yoga without attending a teacher training! It seems as if the greater body of wisdom is reserved for teacher training programs…and that is not the case with HigherEducation.Yoga. While we do have many teachers in the membership, we welcome all levels of practitioners with an interest in deepening their studies and taking their yoga beyond the mat.
Without a doubt. One of the reasons I created this membership is because I hear over and over from teachers who wish they had a continuing way to stay connected and inspired long after teacher training ends. I also hear from teachers who graduate from trainings and wonder, “What’s next?” or “Was that it?” The HigherEducation.Yoga membership serves to scratch that itch, elevate your expertise, and provide you with a supportive community that inspires and activates your passion for yoga…while also encouraging you to step into your role as a spiritual leader and conscious business practitioner.
Each month is a little different, but you receive access to about 5-10 hours of recorded video, plus another 10-20 pages of written content, as well as workbooks, worksheets, pdfs, and guidebooks designed to give you new tools to learn and apply immediately every day. Every month features a giveaway – where Alanna & team choose one lucky member to receive a high-value prize – perhaps a full course for free, a Gift Certificate, an invitation to a free one-on-one session with Alanna – each month is different! Also, as part of your membership benefits, every month you receive exclusive offers for discounts, free stuff, insider access, and beta-testing for new material within the Spiritual Leadership Institute.

While most other memberships focus solely on asana…turn on the class, go through the sequence, and you’re done. You will not find that in the HigherEducation.Yoga membership…we serve a different niche and a higher calling within yoga. One of Alanna’s core missions is to raise the bar on what it means to be a yoga practitioner, and raise the standard of what it means to be a yoga teacher. She has over 1000 hours of higher education across two dozen courses to support that vision. The HigherEducation.Yoga membership is the first time she is providing that same extraordinary caliber of yoga scholarship in an affordable monthly format to her community of people.

Every month, you find lectures, lessons, and practical tools that help you embody yoga and embrace your identity as a yogi every day. This goes beyond just learning alignment in triangle pose. This is learning how to align your soul with your highest purpose through yoga and spiritual leadership.

All of Alanna’s courses and memberships are hosted on an intuitive, easy-to-use learning platform that allows you to access the content from any device with a steady internet connection. Enjoy watching lectures at home on your laptop, or on the go on your tablet or smartphone. Get your higher education for yoga…anywhere!

Let’s go beyond just the basics and raise the bar we set for ourselves as yogis.

Explore the potential of what it means to be a spiritual leader and modern mystic in today’s demanding world.

Get inspired again.
