We know that committing to Yoga Teacher Training is a big decision. In our experience, the smallest things can become great big anxieties and even barriers. We want to bring calm, confidence and commitment to the pre-yoga teacher training experience and have it carry on into your life as a yoga teacher.
Our mission is to help you confidently move toward your training in the most rewarding way. This is a community for YTT preppers and yoga teachers. It’s where information, love and support are generously shared. Whether you’re embarking on a new career or setting out to manifest the yoga teaching career of your dreams, we’re all here to help you face the challenges ahead and beyond.
We welcome all those who seek what yoga has to offer and honor the deep knowledge it brings. That’s why our logo contains the sanskrit for “one who is willing to learn.”
Laura Martini E-RYT 500 has been practicing yoga for over 12 years, teaching for 9 and also leads yoga teacher training programs. She’s built a thriving business teaching at a variety of Kelowna-based studios, serving private clients in her home studio and leading unique yoga retreat experiences all over the world (which always sell out). Her success as a freelance instructor, retreat leader and business owner is something she is passionate about sharing.
Creating Yoga Teacher Prep was all about providing the support she sorely missed when she went through the process of becoming a teacher and that she still sees new teachers struggling with today. Believing that everyone who is considering yoga teacher training has something to contribute and wanting to help them on their journey is a powerful motivator for her.
Laura grew up on a hobby farm the daughter to two lumberjacks (although they prefer the term “foresters”). As much as her parents wanted her to be a lawyer, she went a different route and made a career out of her passions of traveling and yoga. She gets excited about animal rights and spends time every year fundraising for elephant conservation. She loves wine and thinks that her Vino & Vinyasa Retreats are a marriage of greatness. She also enjoys cheese, hiking, and historical romance novels (not the cheesy kind…substance is required). She believes in miracles, karma, and the good in everyone.
